For years the rash tomboyish Tsubasa had communicated with her twin through letters. She had formed the idea that the gentle Arisa led a joyful school life.

I thought this manga was only for "light reading" but it's much more than that. This manga has a lot of potential because it's art is beautiful and a totally detailed story line.

Seriously, before i started reading this, i thought it was just another "sugar and spice and all things nice" manga that was only good to kill time, But OMG i was wrong, this is truly a brilliant piece of work, im bursting with questions, and cant wait to find out what happens next.
The characters have a hidden depth that makes you ask why, whywhywhy. from the start.
the art is good, the plot is WEIRD (in an AMAZING way tho) for a shoujo manga, i hope it continues to keep getting scanlated, I'm excited!! XD

Absolutely amazing... The story plot really sucks you in the manga and you just want to learn more. It's very unique and unexpected! Finally, a shoujo manga that's decent! The art could be better though... bigrazz

Good at first..

The author truly understands how cults work and how ordinary people can be manipulated into figurehead worship and programmed to justify certain actions, whether it be violence or another act of consequence. And most of all, transformed into a menace, whether it be against or within their will.

Good at first but then... it turns into a typical mystery/conspiracy plot. And then, you can see the plot coming up ahead. Too bad though 'cos the author kinda grasped certain interesting things about human behaviour. Unfortunately, the writing got rather predictable and cheesy as the chapters advanced.

Well, at first I neglected reading this because it looked like any other shoujo cover and all romance with some over complicated drama, but then I read the first chapter and was like "This is a hidden goldmine!" Well, not really, but I was definitely surprised how the saying "never judge a book by its cover" really came into effect! lol

I thought chapter 3 would answer the questions I had in the first couple of chapters, it kinda did but left me with more questions. This series really has lots of potentials and the cliff hanger just made me wish the next chapter was out already!

Seems like it could really develop into a good series. The end of chapter two made me really curious about what is the king game. There's suspense, a little mystery, and it's darker than you'd expect. Not a typical shoujo. As for the comedy tag, it might be a bit misleading. Only at the beginning in the first chapter did I see anything that could be called comedy. I'll keep my eye on this series for further releases.

Oh my gosh, such a eye opening beginning. I'm really interested to know what the mangaka is planning to go with this. It's very good, I mean the end of the chapter was just woah.
