It's your very typical manga. It's very cute and is not bad if you like to read about romance and don't mind the fantasy and how it's like other mangas. I had a good time reading it I think but it didn't leave a big impression on me seeing how I completely forgotten what this manga is about but since I finished it i assume it wasn't a completely horrible manga

Just your average fantasy/romance shoujo

My title pretty much says it already. I agree with LUEser & despelucada here. It's pretty much your average fantasy shoujo with A LOT of sappy boring romance and bishounen. It got sometimes pretty confusing as well, switching to this scéne and then suddenly to another. Very weird, at some points I couldn't even follow anymore what was going on.

The first volume was fine and pretty enjoyable, it really seemed like it would be a good shoujo. Okay, there were some cheesy contents here and there, but this wasn't really bothersome actually. It all started around the half of the second volume - third volume that it started to be really, really annoying. All that hassle about sisters loving one person... it seemed more that it was about the romance rather than the fantasy - the lotus world and such, which I loved by the way. It could be such an interesting shoujo if it was more about the fantasy instead of the sappy, annoying romance. The author seriously screwed it up at this point. Sad, very sad...

I don't recommend this to people who wanted to read this because of the fantasy, because trust me, the fantasy is more at the background. However, if you like your shoujo with a lot of sappy romance and pretty bishounen, you'll probably like this, especially if you're around the age of 13.
If you still are curious about it, just read the first volume and don't bother the rest. Seriously, you'll feel like you've wasted your time and be disappointed. I am at least.

I Really Liked It

I've never actually read any of Watase Yuu's work before, but I've seen Fushigi Yuugi in its anime form so I kinda had an idea of what I might expect from the characters and story. It turned out that I really liked it. The main character Alice wasn't a really powerful, independent girl, but she wasn't helpless either. Unlike Miaka, she could be counted on to take care of herself. The story was really creative too with the idea that words can be just as harmful as actions. Yes, the romance can be a little over the top and slightly cheesy sometimes, but its definitely something looking into.

While I've seen anime since I was little (not that I knew it as such, it was just cartoons to me), my first exposure to manga came through one of my close friends in high school. I've yet to figure out if it was fortunate or unfortunate. Anyway I was exposed to a ton of shojo that I would never come close to picking up on my own. This is one of those series. The fact that I finished it says a lot for it. Definately written for girls and hopeless case romantics like my friend. Just pick it up and see you'll like it or you'll hate it.

An Interesting World of Words

I could easily write that it's classic Watase Yuu, and people who know what that means wouldn't have to read any further... but I'll elaborate.

Our heroine this time is Alice Seno. She's a bit more innocent and pure-hearted than some of Watase's previous heroine, but not as annoying as Fushigi Yuugi's Miaka. It has the traditional love interest that Alice is too shy to confess to, and a female rival (her sister) that Alice can't help but feel inferior too. Pretty basic.

But what made this series stand out to me would have to be both the interesting side characters and the system of magic. Often times fantasy series will fall into the traditional war of good vs evil, but not so common is the war of good words vs evil words. Also many of the later side characters are interesting and serve as a good shake up to what's been happening in the main story.

As always the art is very beautiful. If you're a fan of Watase Yuu, you'll definitely want to check this one out.

Yuu Watase was my first shoujo mangka and she holds a place in my heart....maybe if i was older when i found her stuff i wouldn't of liked it as much but this one of my fav series of all times i like the darkness of the story and the power of words message. I guess when it comes down to it im just a sucker for forbidden love.

I don't like any of Watase's works at all. This manga is included. I still don't like how Watase pushed this I-have-a-crush-on-this-guy-in-high-school to I-have-to-fight-a-world-of-demons-to-get-my-sister back. School and demons don't really go together and she didn't do a nice blend.

This is one of those manga's that you really just hate or love. I thought it was o.k. The tale was spun nicely. The art developed well throughout the manga. On the whole it was not something I would want to read again but not a complete waste of time either.

I was hesitant to read this (the ratings for this series were so-so) but the comments were full of praise, so I went for it. But, ughh, after reading some of it, I had to stop since it was way too annoying. I won't rate it since I didn't read it in its entirety (I just skipped over to the last couple of volumes only 'cause I wanted to know how the damned story ended).
