From Aerandria Scans:

"There once was a girl with a splendid flower blooming upon her chest."

When Lys was born, her heart did not beat at all. To save her, her mother made a contract with a devil: Lys can borrow his heart until the day she turns sixteen, but after that, he will eat her body. Together with her companion, Siva, someone whom she met by chance in the desert at night, she travels around as a dancer girl to find the devil who sealed her fate. One day, while they were traveling, they suddenly meet an egoistic prince and a ring spirit...

This story was really worth a read for me ^^
For one, the length of the story is short,yet the author panned it out just right.The art work is gorgeous! *drools* Siva.
And the romance is just right,yet you need more.I liked the love between Fatima and Maalouf,really touching.Its inspiring and very refreshing.I highly recommend! Its a nice way to get out of :]
*Also try this author's Shounen Dolls! kyaaa! its cute >__<

An absolutely terrific story. Yes, it may not have the japanese culture, but it is awesome nonetheless. IT's funny, entertaining, thrilling and you can't get much better than this. THe artwork is to die for, and the story line will keep you on your feet. You won't want to put it down!

At first I thought the basis was pretty cliche and the story would surely be corny. Which I guess even till the end it was... the first few chapters are mediocre, but it gets much better through to the end. The art is absolutely gorgeous, though the bodies sometimes look just a little bit contorted. The characters are lovable, especially as you learn more about them. The ending is quite nice, things are well settled if not well tied. There are a few things that are left untold and leaves much to be desired. But that is a sole reflection of how well it drew me in, and how much the end of the story has left me sad =(.

It was a good and short read! but I do wish it was longer =/

I really recommend this one, it's one of the best, if not the best, shoujo manga I've read.

It has beautiful art and the storyline is great, I wasn't annoyed by some cliche even once in this manga,it all fits, a beautiful ending too - a quick ending, but good- and the fact that there's an awesome, cool,gorgeous bishie there is a plus too..
this manga definately gets a 10.

If you like love stories, some drama, this is a must read.

this story was so beautiful.. it was all about how a couple that was truly in love would go to great lengths for each other, sacrificing what they could for each other. the development was great, and you get attached to the characters and their tragedy.

i didn't think this was a 'typical shojo' at all. but i guess this is just my humble opinion! :3 in a typical shojo i tend to blow through it, say "awh" a couple times, then forget the storyline a few days later. that is not the case with this! i'm sad to see the story end, but it was played out beautifully so i'm not at all disappointed.

Hanatsuki Hime is just like what Liria says it is like. It does have some cliches, but what manga doesn't? Each piece of the story fit together perfectly, and created a really good storyline.

In fact, the near ending made me cry, and I always love anything that makes me cry.

AMAZING art, no doubt about it, coupled with a great storyline and ending allows me to credit it with a 10. The ending was almost a deus ex machina, but I was glad that it didn't turn out that way.

People who love shoujo, (sorta) sad endings, great art, and a terrific storyline should read this.

Ok, I waited until it was fully scanned to comment. I have to say that I really liked the story, and the art was gorgeous. I'll definitely buy this if it's ever licensed in English.

There is some measure of shojo cliche found, but it's not nearly so annoying as many others I've read, and it has the bonus of being short (but long enough to tell the story), therefore not being repetitive or too cliched. Lys may not have known what was obvious to the rest of us, but she's not an airhead. She probably fits best into the "overly optimistic heroine" category, but she does evolve a bit, as do some of the other characters. There are far worse more cliched stories around to read (or avoid).

This is one of the best fantasy shojo stories I've read. It's romantic, it's believable, and the ending fits without feeling rushed or thrown together unnaturally. I really liked it, and I think others looking for a short, sweet romance story (with a really bishie guy) will like it as well.

okay first i'd like to say, Chlorophyll has a point, even if it is rather hostile and poorly backed up.

i agree the main heroine still has that typically shoujo air of incompetence/vulnerability. But i have to contradict what Chlorophyll said about Love Monster. On the contrary, Hanatsukihime has much more substance then Love monster, which was the epitome of fan service. Also I should add that you probably shouldnt criticize if you've only read the first chapter.

overall i think this is super cute, the art is definitely amazing, though i wouldve liked to see a few more chapters, but it's current length is good too.
