I don't know why, but for the first 3 chapters he reminded me of the medicine seller from mononoke. However, after the fourth chapter where
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he proclaimed his love to yet a third girl, convinced her that she was his "one and only true love" and sent her off in style back to her own world

the connection faded and the word "playboy" came to mind. I wouldn't have minded so much if he hadn't of taken the "your my first and last love" with the girls. It seemed insincere. Overall, the stories, apart from the second, were repeatitive, although I kind of like the main character.

So basicly no one ended up with anyone, and just like all the other posts Seimei is such a playboy. In fact I felt there was like no romance at all o__o. Seimei was just like "Oh, time for you to go cause I'm tired of you" to each of the three girls. In fact I could almost swear he was laughing when he sent her back in the last 1 shot lol.

Well, may i assume that all the stories are connected to each other and may it be that Seimei is the same guy in every stories, I must say Semei is kind of unfaithful and a big liar (sorry if I offend any of you). He really has way too many "most beloved" (bigrazz). The art is nice and i think the 3rd stories is the best (very touching, I love it!!) but the rest are just the same.

well its was kindda repetitive and the girls will all believe that they are destined for seimei...but the art is still very beautiful...and seimei is soooo you know what...

it was kindda bad also that seimei always looks like he will love you forever but he will let you go and then he will find a new girl who is somehow doomed and needs his help and he wouldnt recall all the other girls... hard to comment on something so beautifully drawn but badly told...

I have read the mangaka's other work,Hanakanmuri no Hime before this. And I kinda had a crush on Seimei. But then, Seimei disinterests me after reading this manga cuz it's basically telling the same story with all the Hime that he met..

The manga would have been better if the mangaka have had made this manga into unrelated series One-shots (with different characters) instead of focusing on the same guy with different Hime..*which..left me with the impression of a "Harem"-Shoujo genre after reading this manga..* what a dissapointment.

It's true that there is a common theme to each of the stories in this volume. However, I disagree that it makes the stories seem "the same". The manga deals with the tales of a man who has devoted his life to healing the hearts of lonely maidens. Obviously, each of the stories will deal with this scenario. However, each maiden and her circumstances are different.

Most importantly, the art, the dialogue, the messages in these stories are downright beautiful. I found the entire volume (and its follow-up) to be inspiring and uplifting. I would recommend this to anyone who likes more mature shoujo.

While I do agree with what m1sael aid,

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I believe that the man was able to help a little bit with each of the girls' situation and that was very nice of him. I wish they were destined for each other though, but I am fine with the way in which the stories are told.

The artwork is drawn exceptionally well. It is very detailed and very flowing and it is beautiful at the same time, so plus +1 point included in the overall rating.

Overall, this manga is not bad. ^^

All the stories are very similar. Basically, a girl will fall in love with a man they are not destined to be with. That's all there is.
