From Aerandria Scans:

"There once was a girl with a splendid flower blooming upon her chest."

When Lys was born, her heart did not beat at all. To save her, her mother made a contract with a devil: Lys can borrow his heart until the day she turns sixteen, but after that, he will eat her body. Together with her companion, Siva, someone whom she met by chance in the desert at night, she travels around as a dancer girl to find the devil who sealed her fate. One day, while they were traveling, they suddenly meet an egoistic prince and a ring spirit...

Actually, I find myself somewhat in agreement with Chlorophyll. I haven't read (much of) Love Monster, but I think what she meant in her comment was that not that it was a copy but that it was similarly lacking in believability, with a bunch of hot guys and a rather dense girl who always needs rescuing and who they are all somehow attracted to. That's common enough in many shoujo manga, but this series in particular does have some problems with characterization and story. Lys is a bit sillier than I'd like (it's too bad, because she has such a great name! ha-ha-ha...) and Siva is... very very pretty, but otherwise unimpressive. I don't really find it that original, beyond the "Thousand-Nights" type setting and the art.

I wouldn't rate it so low as a 2 myself (I rate pretty leniently, and I do find it cute at times), but I won't deny its problems. For now, I'm reading it for the pretty art.

The art is just beautiful & the story is amazing! Pretty original if you ask me.. yet still predictable. I only read the 1st chapter & am SOOO looking forward to reading MORE!
I can't see how to voters would vote this a zero =O That's not right... I think they meant to put a '1' before the '0' XD
anyways, if you like comedy, romance, supernatural, shouji, and a little adventure in the mix, you should definelty read this!
It's a 10/10 in my book so far!

I rather liked this one. The plot was very nice and smooth, and there was character development. However, the female character is a bit too typical at times and even the guy's actions are sometimes predictable. But the mood the author creates covers this and the final climax and ending was well thought out, which is why I give this a high rating. Might reread this in the future. smile

A very lovely story I must say.

The pretty artwork was really what captured me to read this to begin with because it resembles the work of KAYONO without the ecchi stuff, haha. The demons are my absolute favorites because she draws them either very prettty and ugly. The silver demon really is a masterpiece in my eyes.

I thought it was a sweet story which, albeit short, made an impression on me. The relationship between Siva and Lys is very cute and I think it shows how love can be felt in different kinds of way.

I definetly want to read more of her manga in the future; mostly because I'm just a huge sucker for her excellent artwork. o(^_^)o.

Greatest Shoujo manga I have ever read.

All I read is mostly shoujo mangas, they appeal to me a lot, despite the many people criticizing it. This manga is just beautiful, I completely did not see the ending. I loved it. It was beautiful, sweet, warm, and I loved the characters. This manga truly expressed it's emotions clearly, especially the feeling of desperation. This manga is an A+, the art is amazing, the storyline is original, the feeling is just right.

I recommend this to everyone and anyone!

I held reading this story off, I stumbled across it a few times and it looked just like the regular cutesy shoujo where everything is always wonderful etc. However I finally read it and found that to some extent I was right but I was also terribly wrong. Terribly wrong in a very good way!

Plot- See the description above, now imagine darker themes woven into the story. Themes like... death and killing. The plot was much better than I thought it would be! The pacing was very nice, not to fast but in the two volumes it completed the story excellently. In the beginning it was a bit redundant, but it quickly develops into something more and in the end everything makes sense and had a reason for being shown. If anything I want to get across that the plot if VERY GOOD! It really managed to grip me, and near the end I was wondering how in the world it could end well! Everything comes together so splendidly... just read it!

Characters- All the characters were WONDERFUL! Each one developed throughout the story, even the side characters. They were all wonderful and I couldn't help but get attached to every single one, the two mains especially. These characters coupled with the wonderful story line made the manga all the more better.

Art- Beautiful, especially the clothes and scenery! It was so intricate and detailed, helping the already great manga become even better!

Other- Before I end this review I just want to say... this manga was AWESOME! The story is just so great, blending happiness and sadness, fear and hope, pain and love... now I feel cheesy! But really, this manga deserves some more readers and I feel stupid for not reading it before!

8/10 - Was good

one of the BETS MANGA I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERD WHITHIN MY LIFETIME! Its sweet, great plot and awesome characters!!!!! The girl is ACTUALY strong-willed!!! (which hard to see in shoujo mangas generally) the only downfall is that it was too short! I MEAN , its surprisingly hard to encounter a good manga as this! BUT I LOVE THE DESPERATELY IN LOVE GUARDIAN ! FOR HIS uhhhhhhhhh female companion! ANYWAYS HIGHLY RECCOMENED! read this or yourll regret it!

Lys is a beautiful, hopeful and strong girl, although I have to say, her outfits were all a little too revealing (they were very pretty, though) Siva is a classic slightly evil-looking bishie, but the story is just so sweet. I was suggested this a while ago, and I didn't read it for a while, since I didn't really like the sound of the summary. Once I read it though, it's just so incredibly sweet, and there are sad parts that made me tear up, and it made me smile, and, and, and... well, I guess you'll just have to read it.It's very shoujo-y, but it's just something that makes you feel very satisfied.

Beautiful art and moving story. One of the few mangas whose story I continue to remember (with the manga's name as well haha). I cried at the end and many times in the manga as well. I've read many romance stories until I started to get sick of the repetitiveness, but this tops all, its amazing. You must read this manga, I urge you. I was so sad when the series ended at two volumes, like I had lost a light, a treasure (LOL).

I'm a fantasy fan and I really like this series. Too bad it's only 2 volumes. Artwork is great and story is good as well. A good romance story for all (especially for shoujo fans). I'm satisfied with the ending.
