Not what I was expecting or hoping for. . .

I read a similar story about step siblings (can't remember it right now) so I thought I'd try this one. The artwork is old but pretty enough to draw me in.

At first the story was just lovely but after a while things started going wrong and it no longer appealed to me. But I kept reading it hoping it would get better. Can't say that it did. For the first time in my life, the main couple were not likeable to me. They just kept getting worst! Especially the guy! Ugh!

The ending could have been a lot better but I am looking forward to a side story involving the little sister. Hopefully that goes a lot better cause the guy was uber hot! <3 Sadly that extra chapter in Aru hi, Knight ni Attanara is not about the little sister but about this main couple. At least the extra chapter was sweet.

I love sweet and touchy stories like that and yet usually stories like that won't allow me to re-read them again. I have no idea why, it's just that they are enjoyable and that's all there is to it. The characters are interesting and unique in their own way, though I think the heroine's father is a bit overly protective of her. Anyway, it's a sweet and nice story.

I read some works of Saitou Chiho and I think this is my favorite!... .:-).I like the drawing, sweet love story and I really could feel the 80's though I was born in late 80's... this is very old manga but I really like it!

It somehow reminds me of Mars only because the motorcycle and living together and Marmalade boy of course....

If you've read Saito Chiho's stuff before, then you're no stranger to her forbidden romances where two characters meet, fall in love and strive to be together despite whatever obstacles are presented. It is one of her older series, so the art isn't nearly as good as some of the other things that were done after it.

This manga is quite old so do not expect too much from it, but the story is good a LOT of drama but full with issues of society. I mostly enjoyed the sidestories giving view to the name it was very intersting perhaps because i myself enjoy historical romances.

The art isn't as pretty as her other mangas, but the storyline is bewitching. It's so sweet and ironic to me and I just want to know what will happen. It's like fate is determined to get between these two star-crossed lovers...(^^;ehheh too much Shakespeare) and they're like the RomeoXJuliet if they were stepsiblings.

It's an interesting read... and as usual, beautifully drawn bigrazz

It's Chiho Saito's work!! come on, just go read it already!! After all, from the summary, we all kinda get a hint of what's in store, don't we?? *wink*

This is such a lovely story with well-drawn characters. Girls will love to read especially Saito Chiho 's fans.
