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...

Wow, the art is incredible! This mangaka has some serious talent. The story is nice too. It gives off a "gentle and sweet" aura. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Since this is shoujo mixed with fantasy (a rare combination btw, since you only see these ones on mahou shoujo types), I immediately picked this one up and I'm not disappointed.
The artwork is gorgeous and beautiful, and the plot is interesting, even if it's only chapter one released so far.
And seriously, to Chlorophyll:
What is the basis of your statement that this manga is just a copycat of Love Monster? Aside from the devil deal, of course. If that's the only proof you have and by giving rather heavy-handed judgement on this title just by chapter one, shows how much an immature fan you are.

I think this manga is going to be a great one. It doesn't look like it has a lot of longevity though. The art is fantastic and the story, which is what I judge a manga on, has great potential. The author is new though (or at least she is to mangaupdates) so its difficult to know what to expect.

Chlorophyll is nuts in ways I don't comprehend. Hanatsukihime has no relevance whatsoever to Love monster. In fact I cannot see any way to compare them other than the fact that it has devils (could be 'monsters' from love monster). I can see how he got the fact that Lys is stupid (jumping from a window to save a ring) but one event may not govern the whole manga. I'm thinking he didn't read the whole chapter, because he seems to have gotten a bunch of the facts wrong. (which I won't mention for spoilers-even though it's only 1 chapter in biggrin )

Although only the first chapter (that's been scanlated) came out, I thought it was an absolutely beautiful story (to Chlorophyll: I do not find much similarity between this and Love Monster other than the whole devil deal). The plot's creative, although the characters may be a bit cliche, but then what story has a completely unique set of characters?. The art is extremely detailed and beautiful. I love Lys' outfit, Siva is such an eye-candy, and Thor is just complete cutiepie-ness.

Please disregard a stupid comment below; I don't think the person knows what he is saying. I think this is a really good manga. The chapters may be a bit episodic, but all in all they add to the story. This manga may not be suited to go any longer than 4 or 5 volumes, but I think the plotline is good enough to keep the readers' attention. It's also drawn very well. I've read the first chapter and I'm eagerly anticipating what happens next.

ChlorophyII i Disagree with u......With such a nice plotted story if u too quick to judge. I havent read anything that's close to this. It gives u a curious feeling wat will be waiting on her 16th B-day.

Just another poorly done shoujo in disguise.

I thought the summary was good, but just by reading one chapter do I know that this is just another shoujo like Love Monster or maybe even worst, since Love Monster was at least a bit entertaining. It's just fan-service with no substance. The main character is stupid and there are lots of guys that are thrown in there just for the sake of having a bunch of guys being all over the main character and for absolutely no reason. The characterization isn't even good the story-telling definitely isn't going to be good either. This manga just seems tasteless to me.

The art is just beautiful & the story is amazing! Pretty original if you ask me.. yet still predictable. I only read the 1st chapter & am SOOO looking forward to reading MORE!
I can't see how to voters would vote this a zero =O That's not right... I think they meant to put a '1' before the '0' XD
anyways, if you like comedy, romance, supernatural, shouji, and a little adventure in the mix, you should definelty read this!
It's a 10/10 in my book so far!
