From Manga Abyss:

Japan's law enforcement has worsened, and bodyguards are a necessity in the new era. Asahi is employed as a bodyguard for Kisaragi Sakuya, the talented heir of a rich family. Asahi was brought up in downtown Tokyo, and she is very compassionate. But will she always be able to stand strong against the utterly cold Sakuya? This is a powerful, shoujo, bodyguard romance.

This is the one shot of the movie that Ito and Makoto starred in from W Juliet II.

This a shoujo for young girls or for beginners, they'll probably manage to enjoy it.

Everything was so childish and clichéed i couldn't see any value in reading more than a hundred pages. I skipped to the end but even that was dull.

The start of it is kinda boring, I fell asleep countless times just trying to finish reading one two chapters, but in the middle it got more interesting, I think that's when Asahi's past comes to play, then nearing the end, it somehow became mellow, like it became boring again, so to me this one wasn't very fascinating, it was ok, not bad, but not awesome.

Yes it was fairly predictable but all in all pretty well done! If you're looking for something unique and new storyline this probably isn't for you but if you're looking for just a nice easy, good read this is probably something you'd enjoy! biggrin

Maybe it's not as good as the W Juliet series, but still a nice easy read. Sure some things were predictable and kind of cliche. However, they didn't seem too forced and in the end worked out well. I wished she had an extra chapter or two so we can see the aftermath of the ending events, but guess not.

To the reviewer Pebble. I suggest you go read it again because.

Sakuya knew that he wasn't his father's son. It doesn't specify when, but points out that it was when he was younger.

It pissed me off, so I'm just gonna lash out a bit...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So, Asashi & Sakuya fall in love, they kiss, yay, but... Oh, no ! Sakuya's father is also Asashi's father ! OMG, incest, that's awful, blah, blah, let's break up, and never see each other's faces again.
But, wait ! In fact, Sakuya was adopted in the first place and never knew it, so no problem, and all is well that ends well...
I mean... Come on ! The whole plethora of magical coincidences, meant to make them a couple at all costs, kinda pissed me off.

Moreover, I do not really regard as incestuous the relationship between two people who have been complete strangers for 17 years, even if they share the same blood. I mean, the risk of genetic diseases for hypothetical children is still the same, but morally, they're nothing like brother and sister !
But, well, that's my very own opinion, and people are not bound to have the same. Only, it pissed me off to see how this nauseatingly politically correct morality was forced on us...

Apart from that, it was worth a read.

To the reviewer superman89 : it doesn't change the fact that it's supposed to be a convenient twist directed to us, readers, to make us feel politically correct once more, which still pisses me off.

Seriously I just have to comment on this. I have to agree, there was almost nothing original to this manga. After reading Tokyo Crazy Paradise, the action here fails to surprise you and after reading Marmalade Boy, the incest stuff just isn't well thought out. The plot is predictable enough. But still, I liked the manga. I had just read W-Juliet I and II and I was really amazed by how the spin off turned out to be actually better then the main story. I mean the characters had actual deepness. Not some simple classic shoujo stereotype.
I must admit, the mangaka has gotten a lot better with the drawings, in the firsts chapters of W-Juliet it was really messy, but now it's gotten much better. However, what really ticks me out is the way the main character is soo feminine. Don't get me wrong, he looks gay. Nothing against gay people, really. But I don't see a gay who's gay dating a girl. Neither do I see it as romantic. He was just way too feminine in the drawings. When it comes to gender bender, some writers pulled it off better, I mean, just because the guy dresses up as a girl, doesn't mean he has to look that way.

Sorry, I got a little bit carried away. Anyways, I liked the manga, the characters were well developed, I loved the way the girl could stand up for herself, although Tsukasa is still the best! Well, I've said too much already, give it a try if you don't have anything else to do.

It's not too bad but it could have been better. For one, it's too predictable and lacks a bit of spice/excitement. I guess it was lacking especially after having read Tokyo Crazy Paradise in the past.

As far as romances go this definitely isn't typical which is what I like about it. The story, once it starts to get going which does take a few chapters, is annoyingly predictable which dulls all the startling revelations at the end. It's a good manga to kill time and worth a look if you want something more original but this isn't something I would bother to re-read.

The art work was fairly good, it seemed that all characters except Sakuya were well drawn but he did get better as the chapters went by. I also enjoy having a strong female lead rather than some simpering damsel in distress. It made the manga rather fun to read as Asahi and Sakuya are both capable of handling themselves so it came down to who protects who? It was a little disappointing, if not unexpected, that some of that strength in Asahi is lost by the end.

I think the best part about this manga are the characters, real though went into their personality and development based on their history and interactions. I appreciate that and it does set this manga apart. More could have been done if there were more chapters but I think if this was any longer it would have dragged. Overall a decent read.

I really liked it, though it wasn't very original plotwise and somewhat easy to predict (although that might just be me having read too many of these stories XD). However, the way the story is told and the flow of it is good, which more than makes up for this. The characters are nice too, and portrayed well.

I really loved the start and the plot setting.
He could be something really good if...
I don't know how to said but th last part of the story is really boring. It's easy to predict what will happen and there is too much fate things that turn strange.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Basically the main girl fall in love with a rich boy.
This rich boy had a gentle servant who was like his mother but run away when he was young.
It happen this servant was the girl mother and was a spy (damn the girl think she can't face the guy just because of that).
And it's not the end lol. (just here it was really good)
The father is the same father of the guy !
Damn the girl and the guy are siblings ! incest !
And not because the guy isn't the son by blood so all turn good for them in the end...
