Description
In return for a business loan of 50 million yen, the prestigious Kamiya family gave their daughter Haine away to the Otomiya family. Haine, now an Otomiya, is appointed to the student council of the exclusive Imperial Academy, a private school for the aristocracy. Even though Haine is of proper lineage to be on the council, she finds herself struggling to find her place among the many secrets of its elite members, especially those of the president who holds her heart - Shizumasa Togu, aka "the Emperor."

Haine has been in love with Shizumasa Togu from the day she read the picture book he wrote as a child. She enrolls the Imperial Academy to be close to him and is accepted as a member of the student council. But with that, dark secrets start to reveal themselves! Why does "The Emperor" act differently? Is Haine really in love with Shizumasa? Why did her father sell her and why doesn't her mother write to her anymore?

Includes the following extra stories:

• Kusame and Komaki and the Key of Love in vol. 5
After Komaki confesses and Kusame accepts unwillingly, Kusame tries to break up with her, but how?

Shoujo Eve Ringo Jikake no 24-ji (Eve's Applework 24 Hours)
"Kawaii”... Eve has come to hate this word. "Kawaii" has ruined her life and made her a social outcast. Yet she still has hopes Niikawa will return her feelings for him, that is if the rowdy class idol Kashii doesn't spoil everything first!

Umi no Sakyuugi Yasoukyoku (Nocturne) in vol. 11
Searching for the meaning of people's lives is the mission that is given by God. The reason for my birth... It's okay if it was just to meet you that night.

I am a big fan of Arina Tanemura-sama but reading this manga made me lose a lot of respect for her.

I don't understand why this manga is so popular and is getting high ratings. The story was awful. It wasn't even fair or tolerable. No, It was awful.

And you'll hate the main character Haine. Some characters are fairly likable.

The ending was horrible too. The only plus side was the awesome graphics/animation.

Overall, I would not recommend this manga.

I loved this series...until the ending. That really killed it. I mean, everyone was happy-EVERYONE. Even Touya and Riko. It was too cliched and...happy. And in the end, the Shizumasa/Haine/Takanari triangle was never really resolved. You want to marry both of them, Haine? Come on!

The most stupid ending ever.

To be honest, i really like the drawing in this manga. Seriously one of the most beautiful one, noteworthy. The series flow perfectly, until the second half of the manga. Something unexpected happens, but it is in any way predictable. It IS predictable, until the very last part, where the main girl made a stupid decision, the most stupid ever decision i've ever read in all of the shoujo. Cant be helped that she make that decision? Heck no. It's just plain stupid. And i'm still using a nice word here, just to be fair.

Summarize : It's good throughout the manga, but unexpected ending which some (plenty) wont like. I vote it 1 because i feels that the ending just spoils the whole manga.

This manga has so many problems. The whole shadow twin crap for example. Having 2 brothers, one as the shadow of the other is just idiotic. And a family that did that kind of thing, would deserve to be extinguished. So many other issues too, Haines parents, the issue with her mom. Just pointless and stupid drama, that makes no sense. Haines this tough girl, that can easily handle herself in a fight, but yet whenever the story decides it needs her to be weak she turns wimpy.

Having read this manga, I rather wish I hadn't. I enjoyed the artwork, but thats about all this has to recommend it. Give this one a pass. The story, and the ending were just stupid. I've collected the first 5 or 6 volumes of this, I won't be getting the rest.

for one. i dont really like the drawing that much. the whole big eyed, small face kinda thing. and everyone kinda looks the same.

i got bored reading it halfway through. cos the female lead is boring. and too complex... she cries ALL THE TIME! and she's suppose to be a tough yankee that can beat people up and shit.

there's so many romance going on. so i duno which to focus on. but the manga was rather funny.

i dont like the end that much.. too....... sugar-coated kinda thing. like. happily.ever.after.. -.-"

i dont like it that much.
i only read it cos i was interested in the father.
ahahaha.
thats weird.
gomen...

One problem: HAINE!!!!!!

Seriously, I have never in my life have been so offended by a girl main character!!! She is such a brat!!!! She's one of those stereotypical girly shut-ins who cry every two seconds for the stupidest things and couldn't get a damn clue!!! She jumps to conclusions instantly and is horribly annoying. She runs away every two seconds thanks to her whiny and emo beliefs that she is a bad person!! Stop running away, %#% it!!! She's the only problem in the manga. By the way, isn't she too young to be making a big deal out of romanceconfused? She faints for Christs sake!!

not shounen ai

I hardly see how this is anything remotely close to shounen ai, I mean the main character is a girl and lots of boys are in love with her. If it was a reverse harem tag then I would agree but other than the one guy-guy attraction this is not shounen ai.

A very very sweet romance manga.
And it has so many different twists that makes it stand out.
I enjoyed this one very much.
Tanemura did a great job once again.

this is so cool... the art is good even though all of them looks the same... still... it really did had the ultimate happy ending...

even though in real life, 2 husbands and one wife?! but still... the twins and haine deserve it...

as for senri and ushio.... uh... i wonder who will senri pick in the next life... his former love or ushio confused well... it is all up to our imaginations... isn't it.... biggrin
