Very Solid

I cannot think of anything negative to say about this. Maybe the logic used to explain the mysteries isn't quite as understandable as I would like, but that doesn't bother me too much (it could be a translation issue). I also like that the author uses plot points from past chapters and carries them into future chapters. It shows that the consequences have meaning (for example, we see how friendships start to form and why certain side characters are forced to leave and never be seen again).

Light and easy read

I have always loved this kind of story. A story when a girl is indifferent with opposite gender, mentally strong, and smart. Historical background and fluffy storyline (a story without serious, complicated twist or bloody gore) are a plus-plus to me. It is a light and easy manga to read, no headache due to too much thinking. There's political issue, but no worries it's still easy to read. It's almost like a shoujo (which I don't mind).

Character wise, only main female lead is interesting and fully explained than the rest. Well, it's still acceptable cause there's a secrecy happening and I'm guessing they're just 'come and go' characters to help the heroine survive.

My only complaint is.. it was such a let down that the author decided to explained some simple compound things as a topic of her stories in this manga
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
like chocolate as aphrodisiac, mercury in make-up, or seafood allergy
. I know, the manga took a place in hundred years ago.. where simple things are bigger problem for them. But come on, I have seen this type of story with complicated compound (it's a drama though). This is the reason why I said it's an easy manga. It's still in volume 2, maybe along the way it will change.

So far, I have enjoyed till the latest chapter.

There are only 8 chapters, but I can say for certain, I was hooked in the first chapter! The art and story is amazing! The main character Maomao is one of the main reasons. She isn’t indecisive, she uses her past experiences and learns from them. I like how she is daring and risky, to the point it’s pretty funny. When I was reading I was super excited seeing what Maomao would do next! I highly recommend this, and hopefully it will retain its awesomeness in the later chapters.
