The art is lovely in its own way, though the story is what hooked me. The characters were continuously evolving (So you learned a little bit about each the further you get into the story, which is great.) It's a bit dissapointing that so much time was spent on trying to decipher the characters in kanji used between characters (It may have been important to stress how each character's language was slightly changed and how they were a like- needless to say it's a turn off.) Otherwise, the story is catchy and keeps attention and all in all it's a pleasure to read. If only it came out in the U.S. sooner- worth every penny spent on it if you like a humorous romance.

I don't think it's very fair to compare Koori and Silver Diamond. I read Silver Diamond before Koori, and the differences between the two are just too significant to make a comparison. Both are excellent, with great artwork (and an amazing attention to detail - the landscape art is gorgeous) and creative characters. Silver Diamond is very original in both its plot and its characters, which significantly adds to the story. What would a world be without water? Silver Diamond ingeniously shows how this would effect things—from people to politics to even the simplest things, like paper.

While this lacks slightly in the shounen ai department, the dynamics between the characters hint at more to come. Do give this a try. It's definitely one of my favorites.

This manga is so good that it could be a future anime serie..(I really hope that) Both the story/ plot and the character design are so awsome that you will enjoy reading every page non-stop. Silver Diamond is a top quality work by SUGIURA-sensei therefore it can´t compare with others shonen-ai mangas.

A good manga so far, it has way better art than in "Koori no Mamono no Monogatari" but the story seems weaker to me..
It's still a great read!^^

Edit- oh, and the jokes are great too^^

I like it a lot. The artwork is great, the characters are funny and even as a fantasy story it's kind of special. Me like. >:3 I hate the part about it being licensed, because of the reason japanyaoilover said: it's going to take so long before they get to volume 8. Maybe it's worth it though. I so wanna have it in my manga collection. ^_^

I love this manga. The artwork is flawless and doesn't detract from the story. Its been licensed by TokyoPop though, so there probably won't be anymore scanlations.

Too slow

Interesting story, but it is sooo slow and repeats itself with overused cliches. So at vol. 7 ch. 19 I gave up.
Give it a 3 though, coz' it has an original concept after all,

I've honestly been following this story since it was first being scanlated, and it is my most favourite shounen-ai manga I've ever had the chance of reading. I love the story, the characters, the art, and everything else the mangaka adds to it. I definitely feel this one is actually better than Koori, even though I love that manga a lot too.
