Description
From Esthétique:

Kaori was adopted by Hokuto Ryouzou after her grandmother died. She has the power of a shaman or "uta" of Okinawa, whose left eye can see others' future. The Hokuto family owns the "Hokuto Group," the leading movie company in Japan, and Kaori is behind its success. When Hokuto Ryouzou dies, it is written in his will that whichever son of his that Kaori chooses to marry must leave with her and will not be president of the Hokuto Group. Kaori chooses to marry Youhei instead of the one she really loves, Seiya.

Horrible

This is another one of Akaishi Michiyo's "totally not Sailor Moon fanfic" works, like the one with the tomboy who looks like Sailor Jupiter (Hime 100%,) the Sailor Venus as an actress (Private Actress/P.A.,) and Sailor Neptune as a musician (Akatsuki no Aria.) This time, the victim is human-Luna. But she's a cheater. And dumb. And atrocious. The rest of Akaishi's works are mostly enjoyable (okay, okay- I just love the art style. There, I said it!) but this, of the ones I've seen, is the weakest link. It's a miserable love triangle of horrible people who deserve each other. It's amazing to think it's by the same author who wrote Eien Kamoshirenai (shoujo Inuyasha fanfic) and Alpine Rose (the Sound of Music fanfic.)

The good news is you can buy most of her stuff on Japanese Kindle, so you can legally suffer this work (or ENJOY her others) without pirating.

It felt like Youhei never had a chance and I'd have rather seen her end up with him than Seiya would was just kind of an asshole. It sucks she cheated on Youhei.

surprisingly boring. the pace is incredibly slow and nothing interesting was done with the supernatural aspects of the plot. i read this manga despite the bad reviews, but i really shouldn't have bothered.

I usually struggle to keep my manga ratings from going too high. For this one, especially since I was interested in the impact whatser-name's ability would have on the story, I'm struggling with the fact I can't give it lower than a one.

I'm a person who is often told I'm amazingly patient. (I have a chronic illness, so I get a lot of practice.) This manga wore that out FAST. I don't think I made it past volume one before I started skipping ahead to see if the stupidity ever lifted, which it didn't.

However, I want to salute the commitment & patience of Esthétique for finishing what they started. Plus, I normally love their selections. I hope they were on a...scanlator's high caused by drive & lack of sleep...or something, so their efforts weren't done in pain as well as (this one time) in vain.

The picking theme with love triangle actually interesting, coz we don't see it in lots of shoujo manga (I mean those kind of love triangle)... the opening feels like a novel... then.... the rest are :
the supernatural eye, the characters' development, and how the story's brought... all of them are unsatisfying.
And the ending is a disappointment.

I thought it was going to be a good manga, and I even ignored the comments here (which was clearly a HUGE mistake)...

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ok, so what the heck is wrong with Youhei? He's like "Oh, I love you so much, Kaori" but he dares to sleep with another girl and he has NO personality whatsoever. All he manages to do is get mad at his brother and act all high and mighty, when the one who's actually is DOING something is his wife, Kaori. Seriously? I hate him.
Kaori also is annoying. If she TRUELY likes Seiya, just stop giving off double signals. I mean, in front of others, she acts as if she loves Youhei, but then all the sudden, she's in love with Seiya, but can't abandon Youhei. Really? UGH.
And Seiya is just...stupid. He is just too coward to assume his feelings.



This manga is just bad...better avoid it.

*Bangs head on keyboard repeatedly*

^THAT IS HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS MANGA!

Spoiler (highlight to view)


WTF#1: Seiya goes and basically says "the company is more important than you" [talking to Kaori]

WTF#2: After getting rejected by Seiya, she gets married to Youhei, Seiya's younger brother, DESPITE that she doesn't love him. I get that she has to marry ONE but can she at least TRY to be more loving instead of SEIYASEIYASEIYASEIYASEIYASEIYA!

WTF#3: Then Youhei who so called loves Kaori to death goes out to town with another girl. THE LEADING ACTRESS TO HIS MOVIE D:<

And LADY, Youhei's M A R R I E D. Can you stop hitting on him? You say you always fall for the wrong guys but seriously?!?! You let yourself into this one...

WTF#4: Everytime she sees Seiya, she basically like makes out with him or at least has "loving gazes" KAORI, YOU HAVE A HUSBAND REMEMBER?

WTF#5: Then Seiya goes and says "I DON'T NEED THE COMPANY, I NEED YOU!"

WTF#6: YOUHEI THEN AFTER SURVIVING AN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE [which he did in the first place because Kaori was going to leave him] says "Go Kaori, go to him" ...-.-"

...AND THE LIST GOES ONN! D:<



GAHHH! JUST GAHHH!

Sigh, Stereotypical girl in between a love triangle. Not have interesting at all. Wavering back and forth between the two guys when she's already married to the younger brother.

I was into this manga at the beginning because of Kaori's unique ability. To be honest, I dislike her character a LOT. She's capricious and very much selfish in my opinion--"weak" in many aspects as well. The ending did not satisfy and it was abrupt and disappointing. The plot was interesting but so short and did not show much depth in its ending. I didn't like it much at all, but if you are into film I guess this would entertain you for...about an hour?
