One word: Anime

This story was my first in the magical girl genre (and last I might add). It was cute and sweet but the plot was shaky at some times and in the end it failed to really be all that interesting.

Plot- Like I said, it's overly simple and is only average. It was an interesting take in the Cinderella story, and wasn't horrible, but at the end I didn't quite care overly about what happened to the characters and felt it had not progressed very far.

Characters- Pretty typical characters. The girl was a little weak, but not overly much that it got to annoying. The two main guys are opposite of each other, overly sweet and overly rude. Stock characters placed in a plot that wasn’t all that great.

Art- Older art, but not too bad and the designs were appealing.

Other- I watched the anime, and it is TONS BETTER, so if you're interested in this manga don't read this and watched the anime! In fact, I'm going to give an anime review right now!

Pretear: the anime

Plot- Much, much better than the manga! I watched the anime before reading the manga and was very disappointed by the manga. The anime adds more interesting plot development and adds great twists that solve a lot of the problems I later found in the manga. It's interesting, still rushed, but lots better to a point that I even enjoyed it.

Characters- The characters got DEPTH! There were a few especially who got amazing dimension that made them very interesting and different than from what you would expect from stock characters they first appeared to be like. The girl gets some more strength, and the two males become more than a loose ended love triangle.

Art- Pretty much the same... but animated...


Manga: 3/10- Not that good
Anime: 6/10- Liked it

A Kinda Sorta Cinderella, But LOADS Better

Ya, for some reason this reminds me of Cinderella, with a kinda magically twist. Don't let that turn you off though, there's so much more to the story. The only reason why I say it's similar to Cinderella is because the main lead, Himeno, has 1 "evil" stepmother, and 2 "mean" stepsisters. Anyways, really cute series, the art is awesome, and the characters [which is my favorite part in ANY manga/anime I read/watch] are even better! They're complex, and WAY more than meets the eye. So go and download it!! It's only 4 volumes.

I really like this series! What makes it most appealing to me is that there's so much drama, but there is still action. There are also small side-stories that make it a bit more interesting. I feel the art is good too.^^

Boku-Tachi did the scanslation up until volume 4, chapter 14. An anonymous group or person did the remaining chapters, number 15 through 19.

It's not totally the typical "magical girl manga" as the the element of physchological angst is there, but I feel the ending is a let down.
