I liked it. I thought that the first story was the most interesting and I had wished that the mangaka would would have expanded on that story instead of the boring second one, but whatever.
It was still good.

All of the story is Pretty Good! smile Especially the 2nd and 3rd story. They're so cute~! Well... my best is the 3rd couple/story.
Ah, i didn't say the 1th story is bad, it's still good, but i prefer the 2nd and 3rd story that much cuter than 1th. Peace~
The art is pretty, the character is good! I'll not try to recommend it, but if you want to try to read it, go ahead!

The first story (chapters 1 and 2) is absolutely captivating! I couldn't stop rereading and thinking about the beautiful story and art. It is all fairly simply, with themes of long-term misunderstanding and social position reversal, but the whole added up to a touching and rough story. If you like lusciously drawn images, a bit of non-con and a lot of angst, this one is for you! While not as intricately developed and woven as Shin Mizukami's dark Pleasure Points, it still follows similar themes and settings. So if you want something brief, and you liked Mizukami's longer series, check this one out. Lovely!

The Prince's story was okay; that one really shone in illustration. It was full of flowery imagery and romantic love. There wasn't enough compelling character development for me to like the Lieutenant, so it fells a little flat for someone who likes intense melodrama and to be moved by the character's plight. It had a decent level of light, life-like humour and the the characters were still likeable, so I would still recommend it. Plus all that gorgeously detailed art...

The dog story was the least interesting. It was more comedic than angsty. Still worth the time to read. It's story line may be short and surface level, but it is mild and light.

The art in this manga was very good, but the stories did not quite match up to the quality of the art. I thought the main stories (especially the first one- about the noble-turned-prostitute) could have been developed more to produce better stories. If the art wasn's this good, I would give this manga about 5.5 / 10.

The chapters featuring the imperial court are fun and interesting. The rest is really dull porn. Zzzzzz.
So read chapters 3, 4 and 6, and ignore the rest is my recommendation.
