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...

I really recommend this one, it's one of the best, if not the best, shoujo manga I've read.

It has beautiful art and the storyline is great, I wasn't annoyed by some cliche even once in this manga,it all fits, a beautiful ending too - a quick ending, but good- and the fact that there's an awesome, cool,gorgeous bishie there is a plus too..
this manga definately gets a 10.

If you like love stories, some drama, this is a must read.

this story was so beautiful.. it was all about how a couple that was truly in love would go to great lengths for each other, sacrificing what they could for each other. the development was great, and you get attached to the characters and their tragedy.

i didn't think this was a 'typical shojo' at all. but i guess this is just my humble opinion! :3 in a typical shojo i tend to blow through it, say "awh" a couple times, then forget the storyline a few days later. that is not the case with this! i'm sad to see the story end, but it was played out beautifully so i'm not at all disappointed.

Hanatsuki Hime is just like what Liria says it is like. It does have some cliches, but what manga doesn't? Each piece of the story fit together perfectly, and created a really good storyline.

In fact, the near ending made me cry, and I always love anything that makes me cry.

AMAZING art, no doubt about it, coupled with a great storyline and ending allows me to credit it with a 10. The ending was almost a deus ex machina, but I was glad that it didn't turn out that way.

People who love shoujo, (sorta) sad endings, great art, and a terrific storyline should read this.

Ok, I waited until it was fully scanned to comment. I have to say that I really liked the story, and the art was gorgeous. I'll definitely buy this if it's ever licensed in English.

There is some measure of shojo cliche found, but it's not nearly so annoying as many others I've read, and it has the bonus of being short (but long enough to tell the story), therefore not being repetitive or too cliched. Lys may not have known what was obvious to the rest of us, but she's not an airhead. She probably fits best into the "overly optimistic heroine" category, but she does evolve a bit, as do some of the other characters. There are far worse more cliched stories around to read (or avoid).

This is one of the best fantasy shojo stories I've read. It's romantic, it's believable, and the ending fits without feeling rushed or thrown together unnaturally. I really liked it, and I think others looking for a short, sweet romance story (with a really bishie guy) will like it as well.

Very typically shoujo, but it has its good points.

okay first i'd like to say, Chlorophyll has a point, even if it is rather hostile and poorly backed up.

i agree the main heroine still has that typically shoujo air of incompetence/vulnerability. But i have to contradict what Chlorophyll said about Love Monster. On the contrary, Hanatsukihime has much more substance then Love monster, which was the epitome of fan service. Also I should add that you probably shouldnt criticize if you've only read the first chapter.

overall i think this is super cute, the art is definitely amazing, though i wouldve liked to see a few more chapters, but it's current length is good too.

This is a pretty good manga so far and it's nothing like love monster.
[Seriously every time I see a manga with a demon or w/e, why do people keep comparing it with love monster..? If your like that then you need to read some more manga...]I can't wait to know what happen next. >_<

By chapter four, this manga has made me cry! Jeez! Maybe i'm just a sucker for these type sof stories ^^", but anyways. I think this story has such great potential, and i can already see what the climax may be..we just gotta wait till it gets there! But I'll gladly wait cuase this manga is just a delight to read~! And i do think that this is a story with sweet and pure characters that you just wanna cuddle up to! It's not at all cheesy or stupid in my opinion..

So far this manga has got it all: Action,comedy,a hint of romance, and tradgedy. It's a pretty good start for a manga! I can't wait to read more of it.
