From JanimeS:

The world of Siesta is set in fantasy Europe where there are people called bullet users who were discriminated against badly for reasons unknown to readers as of volume 1.
The discrimination has gotten much weaker due to Grande Corp's efforts to wipe out the decades-old pirate faction with the help of Bulletron, a battle suit designed exclusively for bullet users.

The story begins as the protagonist Dia Canto tells you a little bit about herself: how she became an orphan, how she met her foster family, and how she is very much in love with her step brother, Loe. However, her affection toward Loe is brutally crushed before it would even bear fruit and she goes out to vent her sadness. This is when she encounters Cid Leon, who she would ultimately be paid to "protect".

Great heroine!

I really don't find this manga confusing at all. What I love about the heroine is that she's gone through some very difficult, traumatizing events, but she's brave, kind, and takes care of others without being annoying. I also like how she's calm and very realistic (she reminds me of Teru from Dengeki Daisy), but that she does fight back. I just really want to hug her when people are mean to her. <3 The male lead isn't bad, and overtime I may come to like him too.

It has a really interesting set up, and I like how the author subtly introduced some mystery to the heroine's capabilities. Not to mention that the heroine herself is interesting--calm and humble, but with surprising depths. Her feelings for Loe and about her family really drew me in and made me feel invested in the story and want to know what would happen to her in the future. Some of my growing interest was ruined, however, by the other characters--especially Cid Leon, with his frustrating behavior that is just too over-dramatic, and the weird school league, which also is over-dramatic... The further the story goes along I feel like it gets increasingly ridiculous. I have a feeling that a lot of this manhwa will have battles and super-awesome super-super powered people in the future, which isn't really my thing. But it's probably someone else's.
It's still probably too early to tell, but it does have a pretty good beginning. It might not live up to its potential, but I guess you should judge that for yourself.

I love this's one of the most interesting romance/fantasy manhwas I've ever read, and I'm very much drawn to this type of character. With only one volume left, would someone please pick this up? T.T

I've only read volume one, so I can't actually rave about the series as a whole. BUT so far I'm impressed and in love. The art is beautiful. It has it's own uniqueness. Especially with the interesting world the artist has created. She really draws it nicely.

Thankfully the main isn't a sap. She's not weak (as of now) and I find her interesting, which is always a plus in my book. I mean, no one wants to read about the same kind of heroine story after story, right?

The story itself is enough to keep me anchored. Magic abilities called bullets with rankings? Pretty freakin' cool. I'm never a fan of boarding schools, but that usually has to revolve around the characters and the reason why the main is there in the first place. But usually you don't read about a girl being payed to be a body guard to a resisting guy, who probably doesn't need guarding.

Anyways volume one is just sets up for the looming plot. Settings, characters, themes, background. And it was done well. Plus if you loved Moon Boy (Monday Boy) the other work Lee Young-You did a few years back, you'll love Siesta.

This manwha looks very promising! I love the story... and I hope it will continue its good start. Dia Canto is a very likable character, and Cid for me is appealing in his own way. (I love his exaggerated character as some of you guys call it)... I highly recommend this smile

Not the best, but still awesome! ^^

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the story idea! It's FANTASTIC.
C: I Also LOVE how this story is NOT predictable! It makes it so refreshing! ^^

First off
*CHARACTERS ARE COOL! (They are well developed C: I like the leads, 2 )
*The actual flow of the story is OK
This is why it's not the best. It's still better than otehr mangas, but it does get a bit confusing at times. Just
Those scans are BAD.
The translations aren't correct, so you get really confused.
That's what happened to me =.=''

It's a good manga c:
Great for a time filler, and even more!

This manga is purely awesome (at least for now)! Unique plot and cool art! The heroine also isn't your typical crybaby dimwit and the guy isn't the "flawless prince". The only thing I don't like about the manhwa is that it is too difficult to find...

Siesta has an interesting premise, with "bullet users" who have abilities etc. The main character is quite likable and not a weak female lead (yet) and I find myself empathizing with her. The plot is coming along nicely as well wink

I'll highly suggest that you try this!

This manga really is amazing and I'm so happy that it was finally complete but what's with the ending? I waited for years for these series but I feel like the ending was rushed. This could be perfect if the author put more story in the ending. It left me like wtf. T.T because of that I wouldn't be able to give this a 10/10 so only 8/10

First off: art is gorgeous, I love it. Character development is probably only a little above average; but that isn't surprising as the characters are all very, very original and so understandably would be hard to develop until later volumes when the audience has connected with the series.
ONLY CON: I don't understand why the mangaka has developed the protagonist so slowly, she's not a sap and she's a very strong female, which is nice, but she doesn't have much of personality, as of yet she doesn't have much of a voice in the series.

The plot is the main driving force, not exactly sure where it's leading but I can't wait for the romance to start blossoming, it's got a good pace and heave to it so I'm really looking forward for further plot movement.

Overall: Recommended, original characters, plot may be a bit slow, but at the end of volume 3 you can really feel it starting to lift off.
