Wow! I love manga detective, I love historical manga, and this manga have them both. What's make Lady Detective really great is the characters. The Lady--Lizzie, main protagonist, so much lovable. She's really something! For Edwin, he's cool yet so funny towards Lizzie. Another character who caught me are Jane, the maid who always with Lizzie, and the police detective. Unfortunately, my country didn't published this, and the scanlation group haven't updated this since long ago!! Please, please, I beg you any scanlation group to translate Lady Detective! I need to read this so much!! T.T

This manhwa isn't the best I've ever read, nor is it the worst. It's pretty average, and it has some glaring flaws right off the bat that make it impossible for me to rate it as highly as the below viewer. As a historical manhwa, I'm not that impressed, either. While the author has clearly done his/her research, compared to the many novels of historical literature that I've written, or even other examples of historical manga/manhwa, it doesn't capture the feel of that time very well. And while the action of the story starts off quickly, it seems like the author and artist are in a rush to capture the reader's attention. It's a common fault in manhwa and manga, but it ends up giving the story an abrupt feeling. To top it off, Lizzie is Mary-Suish, and a bit annoying in her airs about being smarter than other people (though perhaps excusable, because she's a feminist trying to stand up for smart, independent women in a time when they didn't exist? But it comes off as a little brash and unrealistic...)

That said! It's somewhat interesting, at least because Lizzie is arrogant and clever (despite the Mary Sue qualities, I often end up getting sucked in by those things after all). There's a decent mystery plot going on, and I'm interested in seeing if Lizzie ends up doing more with her skill at being a detective, as well as how Lizzie's denial over her butler/childhood friend resolves itself. Their relationship still seems silly to me, but there is potential for surprising developments and for romance.

This looks extremely promising. I've only read 2 chapters so far, but here are my impressions:

-Good pacing--the action starts right away
-Romance--only a hint, but it will be interesting to see the relationship between the two characters
-Heroine--strong, pretty, intelligent and NOT annoying (Hallelujah!)
-Story--a mystery without being too scary but also without being too light/fluffy. (A lot of shoujo mysteries these days seem to fall under the "Psychological" category or the "Comedy" category. Lady Detective is neither. It's serious, but not scary. And it doesn't treat the mystery genre lightly.)

Very, very good. 10/10
