Not for me at least

As said previously, I think that people expected more romance due to the anime adaptation.
For the comparison with Akatsuki no Yona, I think that Akatsuki no Yona manages to tell a story in a more interesting way.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So even if it hasn't much progress in the romance side, the evolution of Yona and what she will do regarding her current situation is the main focus. But maybe it's because it has more action and the issues are more important?


And indeed Shoujo is not Romance, personnally I had some difficulty to keep an interest to Akagami no Shirayukihime. It is one case where the anime adaptation does a better job than the manga itself (in my opinion again).

If you want a fluffy shoujo brainrot romance, this isn't your stop, get off and go to the reincarnation isekai section or whatever. I assume most of the people who've come to read this in recent years have come from the anime and want more of that.

I've seen a lot of recent comments saying it's become bad, or that it gets dragged out too long, or that they dont know where the story seems to be going in the titles, but most of them are mainly complaints about how the main character and her love interest havent had much time together in recent chapters.

Romance isnt the only genre listed. It's not trying to be a fluffy cute romance, it's about Shirayuki and the challenges she faces at her position as a court pharmacist while trying to become worthy of being by Zen's side. There doesn't seem to be an underlying plot that goes through several arcs, but there is a clear end goal.

If I were to list any complaints that other people may have other than these, it may get a little wordy with the dialogue at times (in a few arcs they tend to use a lot of technical terms and along the line some names and stuff that you need to remember a little) but it's never really too dull. You can compare it to Akatsuki no Yona, perhaps a little more slow paced but just as amazing nonetheless (imo at least)

Shoujo ≠ Romance. Shoujo just means that it's intended for a female audience, and probably has a female protagonist.

If you're in for well written story arcs and relationships with beautiful illustrations, this is your stop.
If you're here solely for some fluffy heart-throbbing romance and nothing more, I suggest you try something else.

Draggy and boring

I've been following this manga since 2009 now its almost 11 years start up great bit getting more draggy and boring in recent years. Storyline has been stuck at the same plot around 3 years. Mangaka tries hard to make Shirayuki the ultimate female lead who can do anything on her own but backfired. All readers have known how independent and good Shirayuki is since around 4 years ago. Too many new characters and filler plots introduced making this series its original charms which anyone cannot deny is the dynamic between Zen and Shirayuki. Nowadays Zen become just a support character with forefront and focus plot is around Shirayuki-Obi which is boring to say the least. Obi should have take a seat back, its boring having to see him in each chapter around Shirayuki in each chapter. Zen-Shirayuki scene nows have just become a click-bait for longtime followers to keep on reading and anticipating their scenes when its their scene is just crumble. I'm reading it because its a shoujo and im a shoujo fan, so i expect romance. Should have changed this tp slice of life/seinen. Everytime a new chapter came out i was like "tell me why is the mangaka still continuing on this series again? " Useless plot with useless storyline. Should have ended it during its glory stage years ago. Major disappointment.

used to be so much better

My comment title says it all. This story used to be so charming, with nice ambiance and art, likeable characters, and a story that was fairly interesting. The best thing about this story is the cute but pure romance between Shirayuki and Zen. It's nice reading about healthy relationships where the couple respect and love each other. It's so rare in shoujo, and the unique, pretty, and clean art only boosts this story's fluffy pureness.

Then the story becomes stale and dragged out. Recent arcs have too much story time put on Shirayuki doing academic research (which is quite boring, honestly, after several volumes of it (which takes years for the mangaka to make), and I read this for entertainment, not the work I have to do in real life). Compared to the first few story arcs, which were exciting with an interesting and unique plot, the current arcs really pale in comparison. It's derailed into a slice of life that's pretty dull.

There's also not enough interesting character interaction happening. And by that, I mean our main couple don't even get to see each other for months! This translates to several volumes of chapters with them being apart, which is equivalent to years of waiting in the readers' real world. The main issue is that the charm of this story is Zen and Shirayuki's interactions with each other, which lasted several story arcs in the beginning. Their romance took centre stage, so it gives hope for readers to see more of that, but recent arcs fail to deliver on that aspect.

Obi and Shirayuki also have way too much screen time together in the recent arcs. I get the feeling the author wants to nurture second-male-lead syndrome in the readers, but that's the author setting a writing trap for herself (imho). I also like Obi's character so I don't want to see him stuck in this unrequited love situation for 15 years and counting (2006-2021). Shirayuki and Zen are already set in stone as the lovely main couple in the story, so Obi being with Shirayuki is only going to happen if:

a) Shirayuki has a change of heart (unlikely),
or
b) Zen dies and Shirayuki moves on and falls for Obi (which isn't likely either).

The chances of Shirayuki having a change of heart is as likely as cats turning into dogs since that's not the character profile the author set up for her (so it's not going to happen unless her character does a 180). And if it does happen, it will be seen as cheating, which is out of sync with her personality, and the readers are not going to like the cheating or change in character. Besides, this manga's genre isn't the angsty drama type so it doesn't make sense to go there either, plot-wise.

In short, watching Obi and Shirayuki having so much screen time together without Zen is like watching sizzling meat never becoming fully cooked (and this applies to both ships, whether you ship Shirayuki with Zen or with Obi). This is happening for years now in real time, so readers are going to feel frustrated with this development (or lack thereof) when all they have in the meantime is stale dry research to read about. It gives the impression the author wants to keep milking this story. I don't fault the author for doing this though. This story is the author's livelihood since it has a big readership, which means $$ for the author. And that's fine. I just don't like the author not having better writing skills when she needs to stretch the story out to make it last a few more years. Because the initial readership is not going to last if she keeps this up.

I've been reading this since 2013 so recent developments are quite disappointing after so much waiting. I'll probably just read the ending (and that would likely be years away from now, at the rate the mangaka is making this (T_T)
This story went from 9/10 to 7/10 but I'll wait for that ending to adjust my rating.

I've been following this series for 4 years now, the chapter's started amazing, but now? I really don't know what's akizuki (author) planning to do, I've loved this series so much, but ive been disappointed so many times and waiting for shirayuki and zen to meet Everytime was exciting at first but then turned out to be stressful, the series that started amazing is getting boring and that really makes me sad, there is so much potential and many things that can happen but all I see in every chapter is shirayuki doing everyday stuff and no development between her and zen, I've been waiting since 2017 for something fresh but still nothing new or too interesting… Still it's worth reading!

Characters are pretty boring, the MC is kind of annoying with their I'm so amazing I can do anything attitude, the story quickly turns into nothing, there's no underlying plotline and the romance is mediocre at best. It's quite a hard read as there's nothing to keep the reader interested.

I always loved stories with European settings, stories that are unfold in a non-city like background. The manga itself is very warm, sweet and you can't even hate any of the characters 'cause they are very well developed in their own way.

The interaction between all the characters are fun and nice but for some reason, the author seems to want to tease the readers by giving very little romance scenes between Shirayuki and Zen. It's like you know when you see them both together after so many chapters and you'll want to keep supporting them 'cause it's so touching.

Yet it's kinda irritating when you get to see them together for a little while and then they don't have much screen time together 'cause the other 3 friends will keep appearing. Plus I feel like Obi gets to stick around Shirayuki far too many times, though I understand the reason why he's with her most of the time. Even so, I'm hoping that we will get to see Zen and Shirayuki together moreeeee.

I really commend the author who create this amazing story! Actually, Its my first time to read manga and I'm very happy that I come across to this manga! Im so inlove with it! So I kept on following updates regarding the new chapters. Its a very good story for me because its light drama, comedy, full of romance, "kilig moments" the female lead is very smart and can actually stand on her own. I love zen, he is very charming! though I love Obi too but I'm still rooting if Zen and Shirayuki will be have their happily ever after in the end, and mitshuhide and kiki too. I hope Obi will find love on his own. But I guess he will just remain single for shirayuki, he's inlove with her.

Over all I really love this Manga! I hope the author will not discourage about the other negative comment here. Because I believe there's more people like me who will appreciate this than get boring to this. I love every chapter of it! i really do and can't get enough about it. smile

for people who dont like reading love traingles you prob shouldnt read this. Id say in the beginning it starts out as a simple romance but more and more it seems like at the very least its an emotion love triangle. The other guy seems to get way more screen time as well as the most interaction with the main female lead so it might as well be a love triangle.
