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 is a pretty good manga so far and it's nothing like love monster.
[Seriously every time I see a manga with a demon or w/e, why do people keep comparing it with love monster..? If your like that then you need to read some more manga...]I can't wait to know what happen next. >_<

By chapter four, this manga has made me cry! Jeez! Maybe i'm just a sucker for these type sof stories ^^", but anyways. I think this story has such great potential, and i can already see what the climax may be..we just gotta wait till it gets there! But I'll gladly wait cuase this manga is just a delight to read~! And i do think that this is a story with sweet and pure characters that you just wanna cuddle up to! It's not at all cheesy or stupid in my opinion..

So far this manga has got it all: Action,comedy,a hint of romance, and tradgedy. It's a pretty good start for a manga! I can't wait to read more of it.

This manga is simply great.I love the exquisite art and the fact that the heroine is not another idiot struck by love; she actually has a reason to be inlove with Siva and to care for him. The story is juat at the beginning so I can't say yet how it will evolve, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

Note: this manga has nothing to do with Love Monster(which is btw the only manga I've ever dropped, too ecchi for my taste, not enough story).

The art and plot to this is great, and unique too.
I also love the fact that she isnt a dumb idiot who is stupidly in love, she genuinly cares for Siva, which is fantastic.
i also love the fact of how subtly Siva's feelings are based.
straight up to one of my fravourite mangas. cant get enough of it.
a must read for the Shoujo fans. X

Like this one very pretty art and interesting story too. It seems all Hibiki Wataru's work is amazing even though i guess she's a newcomer. I hope the scanlation will continue cos i really want to read it

I don't think it is anything like Love Monster - which I find irritating. The girl seems to have a pureness, unlike the girl from Love Monster who was always being touched ^^;;;; by other boys.

I love this story~ I think it is really sweet, and the devil is hot. They have a tender love that goes beyond that of some dumb manga. The main guy (devil - Siva) is someone who deserves respect, and the girl is not some bimbo idiot-- she is 15 and has a pure heart. She does whatever she can for Siva and considers him irreplaceable.

Siva is quiet, but we are starting to see his feelings for Lys... he probably followed her at first because she has his heart, but the reader can see that she has melted his heart. Some may say that he follows her for his heart, but his reactions to her hugging him and showing emotion can not be mistaken for anything -- it is love.

To the people who have given it lower marks - how can you tell after one or two chapters what it is? It wonderful and a delight to read.

Actually, I find myself somewhat in agreement with Chlorophyll. I haven't read (much of) Love Monster, but I think what she meant in her comment was that not that it was a copy but that it was similarly lacking in believability, with a bunch of hot guys and a rather dense girl who always needs rescuing and who they are all somehow attracted to. That's common enough in many shoujo manga, but this series in particular does have some problems with characterization and story. Lys is a bit sillier than I'd like (it's too bad, because she has such a great name! ha-ha-ha...) and Siva is... very very pretty, but otherwise unimpressive. I don't really find it that original, beyond the "Thousand-Nights" type setting and the art.

I wouldn't rate it so low as a 2 myself (I rate pretty leniently, and I do find it cute at times), but I won't deny its problems. For now, I'm reading it for the pretty art.

Wow, the art is incredible! This mangaka has some serious talent. The story is nice too. It gives off a "gentle and sweet" aura. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
