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.

I absolutely love this manga. I agree with kitten1011. It's starts out like the original fairy tail snow white, but then spins off to something totally different.
Shirayuki (snow white) is really cool because she's not only smart and independent, but she also has some common sense. She can take care of herself. She's very kind and couragous.
Not only does this manga have a good plot and good characters, but it also has really great art, which is kind of rare. Some mangas have good plots and characters, and cruddy art or vice versa. BUt this manga has it all.
I would personally recommend this manga to anyone who is into the girl characters taking care of herself rather than having someone else take care of her.

Every once in a great while there comes along a manga so well written and drawn that itís impossible to dislike. This is one of those. While the reasons for people liking it vary greatly, I find myself drawn because of only 2 of them.

The first being the simplistic, clean, yet beautiful artwork. Some may say that itís nothing special, that itís too simple and too ordinary. Although it may seem that way at first, if one looks deeper, theyíll find the artwork lends itself to showing a wide array of expressions and emotions. The backgrounds are also rendered superbly, with just enough detail to make world feel fleshed out, yet not so much as to get in the way of the story. Also (and this is my personal favorite reason), the artwork is perfect for coloring. I believe my best coloring job is a 2 page spread in this manga.

The second reason I love this manga is because of the things that are NOT said. While most mangaka would express things like anger or annoyance through the overuse of sfx and over the top super-deformed drawing, Akizuki-san rarely, if ever, uses them. Instead, she writes the scenes in such a way as the emotions are subtly implied and registered almost subcontiously.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Take for instance the exchange between Zen and Shirayuki when she did not tell him how tired she was. He simply sits down on her bed, is quiet for a moment, and there is a panel of her looking at him while he has a not quite stern, but an almost contemplative look on his face. After a pause, he simply says, ďDonít ever hide something like this from me again.Ē Then there is a couple panels when she realizes, shown through a slight widening over her eyes, that heís very very upset. Yet that emotion is never said out loud, and never shown through a sfx or anything like that. Itís just one of those exchanges where they understood without giving voice.

I would and do recommend this manga to everybody. If you like love stories, you have one of the best here. If you like a little political intrigue, there is some. If you like slice of life, thereís a bit of that too. I can find something in it for just about everybody.

10/10, 5 stars, golden globe, w/e you want. This manga is, if not my favorite, definitely in my top 5.

It's really a great and refreshing manga like others have said she's not a dumb dense girl..though i think she's a bit too sensitive but what girl isn't.

Anyways it definitely is a must read for anyone interested in your not so ordinary but strong heroine.

It's funny, since my mom wanted me to become one, and here I am, reading a manga about it.

I really love this manga! It makes me prance around in flowers. The leading female HAS A BRAIN, and she doesn't make anything dramatic.

And Zen?

My heart beats for him. bigrazz I would so want a relationship like theirs.
