Shirayuki is a young woman born with unique apple-red hair. After catching word about her hair, Prince Rajin sends orders for her to become his concubine. With nowhere else to go, Shirayuki cuts her hair and escapes to a neighboring country. 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. What will happen to Shirayuki? What is Zen's true character? A refreshing fantasy story between an optimistic heroine and a prince who constantly stays on her watch.

Beautiful, but not very exciting...

First of all, the art is fantastic. The quality and amount of details on every page is just impressive. It's definitely a work of art. I also liked all the characters. The female lead is farm from a pathetic crybaby (much love to strong female leads), the male lead a sweet and well developed (not a one dimensional idol), and they're really just very cute together. and for whatever reason I'm a huge fan of the spy obi. haha In fact I don't think there was really a character I disliked. Even the story itself isn't bad.

However despite fantastic artwork, and good characters...I find myself bored. I think it just lacks some drama or major conflict. Yes, it has that, but I'm never really drawn in to the point that I HAVE to find out what happens next. It's more of a story that just sort of floats along peacefully, and even when conflicts arise you no nothing bad is truly going to happen from the start. It's like a fairytale kind of.

If you're looking for a pretty, peaceful love story, I'd definitely check this out. However I kinda got bored after a while and dropped it at about chapter 18....

Aside from the cliches everyone points out i mean really if thats all then you should just stop reading manga you will find at least one cliche in all of them = n =

The art: It is simply amazing~ its simple and clean they style is very relaxing and the designs! TTUTT SO GOOD. The mangaka is also one of my favorites.
The story: Actually this is a very original plot, it keeps me guessing as to what happens to them next. And the theme goes so well with everything. No it doesnt have the big evil plot, no it doesnt have insane rivalry, and no it doesnt have heartbreaking moments, but what you'll find is how the characters develop throughout the story. The story flow and romance are very well played too~
The characters: I LOVE THEM ALL. Our heroine is a strong girl and i love it i hate the weak typical shoujo heroine who waits for the hero to rescue her, instead the heroine is very strong as well as the hero both beside each other as the story progresses we watch as their feelings grow, as well as trying to find who they are. Even our secondary characters make big impacts. They humor, the personality, and the design of each one are very original.

This is my favorite manga i've read it so many times and i dont get bored of it, its a fun light read~

The one flaw   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

I am no shoujo fan, but I realy love this one.
The interplay of the art, the plot, the storytelling pace and the character development, is one the best I've ever seen in a manga.
Everything fits so well that I would give this series the label "art" that seems to be so sought after recently.
So far there was however one flaw, it almost made me stop reading, just as it did stop others (as to see in comments here and on other sites).
This flaw is the unlucky choise to have two situations in which the prince has to rescue the girl come across in the first two chapters.
Many non shoujo readers, like me, have little patience for damsels in distress, especially as protagonists, and I would have stopped reading if it wasn't for the pacing and artwork.
In my opinion all reviews should warn the readers qabout this awkward part off the first chapters and inform them that in later chapters the protagonist is as far from a distress damsel as a non combatant can possible be.
Edit:
Many reviews say that they started liking it after 7th chapter.
While that might be true for them, I would advice you not to trust the same to be happening to you.
The pacing and characterisation doesn't really change, in fact I have the suspicion, that most people who wrote this just needed time to get used to the unusual, rather slow pacing.
Anyway for people used to slow pace, which in my point of views make for the best stories by far, this shouldn't have the 7th chapter effect, for others, it might really need some 7ish cahpters to get in to.

<3 Charming art, amazing pacing even against its more slice-of-life-ish genre, and - most importantly - genuinely likeable characters. I'm amazed that none of them have been irksome or exaggerated; one might even call them mild and insightful. Finally, a mangaka that knows how to craft a great story without treating the audience like dumbasses. Check out her other works; they're great as well!

the art... THE AAAART!

and yeah, the story. what i like best about this manga is that there are no stupid characters. the story is sweet, even if there are some cliches here and there. shirayuki is an awesome character that inspires me to do my best. she's just awesome awesome.

i just wonder how the plot's going to move especially with the new plot devices being introduced. you can see cliches coming up.

but meh, as of now, the art and shirayuki are enough to keep me reading.

recommended if you're looking for something sweet, pretty, and smarter than your usual stupid shoujo.

The art is simple and clean & it doesn't give you a headache.(Just the way i like it!!~)
The story is interesting but a wee bit slow moving. The characters are VERY LOVEABLE & they express their feelings quite well.~~ (eeee!!>///<) ZenXShiraiyuki~ Very romantic i'll say.Hope the chaps will come out so i continue watching their chemistry~XD

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
