While traversing through the forests, she meets a young man, Zen, who helps her after she boldly cures his wounds. He soon, however, becomes poisoned by an apple meant for Shirayuki.

having read so many mangas like this before its one of those
i can see.....
......the ending.
full of cliches. infact i had stopped reading it as soon as i got to the chapter where zen came to rescue shirayuki i saw it coming that he's a prince from a neighboring country. although the sense of humor is good. but that's not enough to keep my interest.

I don't agree with Krysic. I've been reading mangas for a long time, and I found this one fascinating. I remember picking it up 1-2 years ago, and thinking it was boring. I'm so glad I decided to read it again; the heroine has the potential to become one of my absolute favourites.

You won't find passion in this manga. You won't find insane evil characters either. You will find relationships based on mutual understanding, people working to improve themselves. You will find people who make mistakes, and then recognize it. You will find acceptance. After reading it, I felt calm and content.

What I've loved the most was the way the two main characters' relationship helped them become better people. It was beautiful.

I found the art gorgeous in its simplicity , though some people might define it plain. I personally think it couldn't fit the story better. The clothes remind me of western fantasy mmorpgs. (A personal favorite).

I tried reading this fully because of the high ratings it got....
Personally, I wasn't a huge fan of it. I tried to read it as much as I could, but I was falling asleep.
I guess it's another one of those...mangas that are only good to those who haven't read the really good ones yet. =/

Shirayuki is absolutely adorable. She's cute, strong-willed and brave. Her and Zen's relationship is very sweet. I'm definitely going to keep up with this one- I can't wait for more scans! smile

this story is very beautiful and romantic, especially the two main characters who each want to express their affection, but they slowly managed to get the feeling, especially when the Zen Shirayuki want to kiss, but because Shirayuki not know his feelings to the Zen. Zen stopped his intention! Zen is very sweet and good to Shirayuki, he was very concerned about girls he likes. Shirayuk otherwise pay attention to the Zen with great affection and love. I loved this story

This is one of the most adorable romantic shojos I've read so far. The comedy as well as the romance is refreshingly simple and easy to understand, with each character contributing to the mood of each chapter. Affection between the protagonists is expressed rather than subdued, yet muted under a blanket of friendly formality.

What I like most about this is the way a reader can grasp the characters' personality quickly, despite the simple artwork.

I've done couple of reviews to mangas I like or find interesting. I think that's why I'm running out of good words to say.

"A refreshing fantasy story between an optimistic heroine and a prince who constantly stays on her watch."

That totally said it. Not totally but in my opinion it pretty much describe their romance.

This manga is so wonderful! I don't know how to describe it besides the fact that I find it refreshing. This manga contains pure innocence and purity. Though that kind of sounds strange, you'll get what I'm talking about when you read this manga.

The characters are wonderful, they aren't perfect, but they are what you would describe as "good kids." Both of them have amiable personalities that drive the story forward.
What a wonderful manga, I hope people scanlate more of these chapters.

The art is great (Zen is so cute, and Shirayuki's so pretty), and the story is awesome. Has a refreshing, unique peaceful atmosphere that just really makes you feel good inside. Shirayuki is so strong and determined, a really great and different heroine from the usual shoujo.

And, the romance between Zen and Shirayuki is SOOO fluffy. Each chapter has a scene where it's just so sweet and cute and I just want to squeal everytime I see it. It's a manga that doesn't make you stressed out or tensed up, but still great enough to keep your interest.
