Description
A young boy is saved by a mysterious gunfighter who uses magical bullets. She is the greatest magician in the world but disappears shortly after saving him. Having fallen in love with her, he trains to become a gun fighter and ten years later, his search comes to an end but his adventure has just begun. Kurohime is a buxom witch with the power to control magical guns. She once made the mistake of challenging the gods and was cursed for her foolishness! Transformed into a little girl named Himeko, she can only regain her former body and powers when she falls in love. But finding love in a world fraught with evil is no easy task.

I love this manga and the characters, the story is pretty good and when kurohime is little is so cute smile
I can't wait to see the next chapter, so the only bad thing is that the release of it is very very slow. I cheer Genesis to go fast with it^^

Vol 1-3 will be very repetitive, kurohime acting bossy and stupid, zero...etc2. But starting volume 4 and so on, the story and action will increase significantly, pretty unexpected.

Yes the climax of each chapter/arc is predictable, as in what many have said before, but I still love the art style and the characters in general seem pretty lively. All the author needs to do is put a bit more twist on things and this series will turn out great.

Ok - update biggrin read up to volume 6 and its been great. It does pick up and gets much more emotional/plot related in the 3-6th volume... >_> though I don't know at this point where the author is taking things (chapter 19 XD)

While it is repetative, for me it's not at a point where that is annoying yet. The art is cute and Kurohimé isn't some stereotypically unorigional female lead. If the plot just keeps repeating then I'll probally be lowering my rating, but I can only hope it's building up to a big contrast or something, we'll see.

"nothing short of a god-like main female lead,"
That's kinda the point of the story, no? ;P

I'm afraid I have to agree with llbloodll on this one - the mangaka obviously has plenty of artistic talent, but badly needs an idea or two. This story is so generic it could have come out of any of a hundred other mangas - uninspired, unoriginal and and repetitive. I suppose it's aimed at the Naruto and DBZ brigade, which means a target audience of around 13-14 years old, but that's no excuse for publishers to keep pumping out this bland stuff. The score I gave is 5 for the artwork,which is really excellent, but I can't give anything higher because of the unoriginal storytelling.

It rocks! It always got to me when I saw the Zero protecting Hime even though she treats him like dirt. I was not very encouraged to read this at first 'cuz of the first to comments really sucked. But I totally recommend it! biggrin

Sorry for bringing the rating down, but I really see a mangaka's artist talent put to waste in this. Repetitive, DBZ like, and unrealistic characters with nothing short of a god-like main female lead.

Great manga, great artwork and a good plotline, the only thing keeping it from a 10 imo is that it can get a bit repetitive
