Classic fairytales aren't known for their positive portrayals of women/romantic relationships, but I can't help but find the positive reception on this site to this tale disheartening and disappointing.

I don't feel up to taking the time to expound the flaws and harmful social constructs therein (I'm old and tired), so.

To put it simply, these themes p***ed me off:
- pedophilia/ephebophilia as the prince tries to be the "early bird getting the worm" as the princess has just turned eighteen, is easily manipulated/sheltered, and her social status offers connections he wants for his own kingdom
- the normalizing of harmful repercussions when rejecting men (for whatever reason)
- intimate, physical favors being asked as payment/the idea of female bodies being up for barter
- the value of a woman being determined by her virginity or "purity"/the Defiled Forever trope
- related to the last but not the same, the dichotomy of the virgin and the wh*re (i.e Madonna-Wh*re Complex)
- the rape scene. She says no, is crying/resisting, and he holds her wrists down and rapes her

The princess is honestly a terrible human being at the beginning, selfish/proud/myopic/all-other-negative-traits-assoc-with-being-a-noble-or-royal, but she did not deserve the events used to "inspire" her growth. And the misogynistic themes are reprehensible regardless of the characters involved.

Yeah. I'm done tossing my two cents into this void. Would not rec this unless I wanted to complain about it/pick it apart wih someone else.

It wasn't perfect of course, but it has that sort of charm that, IMO, cannot be explained. Like the subject title, I absolutely adored this. The characters are intriguing, most especially our main hero, the Prince. The princess' character was also developed really well.

Wow. The twists and turns of their love story make you want to read page after page. The modern references were a little off though, but I just shrugged them off as comic relief. Great read!

Well the story is good... But adaptation is so-so. Technological part seems out of place... It could have been modern adaptation, and I wouldn't have any problem with that, but common, they are riding in carriages and there are no signs of asphalt but they are talking stuff like "I will find her using GPS" which just too strange. And I just can't give credit to the mangaka for the plot as it is not even original story...

Completey agree with kitty1826x about the secondary character's reactions to the prince's words... the entire storyline has been carried out in a very cheeky and audacious yet chaste manner.

I'll be honest, the art from the get go made me go "Whaaa" coz I was expecting much more delicate or gorgeous art. Here you see a very German or western influence, it's not really the kind of shoujo manga art (or even regular manga) like the kind you're accustomed to... so I felt it lacked a little pizzaz... hence the 8. Story and character wise, this one's a winner. Of course I take a LOT of issue with the original fairy tale and this rendition of the story itself, but that's already been written and I cannot hold that against the manga. But if you are a self respecting woman, you will feel outraged at the circumstances doled out to the princess after a point and that a wee bit of Stockhold Syndrome comes into play for the neat and clean resolution of the story that we see.

Deserves more attention

This is one of the most well done short mangas that I've ever read. It expands on the original story and gives out much more insight into the characters' thoughts. Imo, it really improves on the original. The smut is tastefully done and actually adds to the plot. There's also a little unexpected bit of humor throughout with futuristic (or should I say present?) references throughout. The art is pretty good and meshes well with the story. In short, it's great. Check it out if you can! smile

Suprisingly good manga

This is a surprisingly good retold version of Andersen's classic fairy tale. The clear and clean art managed to convey the bitter-sweet story line. The characters are very interesting, especially the princess who has been given a new breath in comparison with the depiction of the original fairy tale.

I'd recommend it for those who is fond of a smart twist of those classic stories.

I could say that the character was appealing specially the Prince.
It's attraction and distrust comes in sequence.
Surely, both of them has an irrevocable feelings conveyed but hindered by circumstances.
Yet lesson learned.

What a romantic and sweet adaptation. Truly marvelous in execution. Any girl would go jelly and fall in love with the slow and gentle way of kissing of the swineherd. The art is clean and simple but very effective in conveying the characters' emotions. I wish there was more. ^_^
Recommended!

I love this. The 1st time I was completely happy with something I read. I was smiling through most of it, found some parts comical ( I was laughing and blushing at times). I really can't complain about any part.
I'm still smiling and can't wait to tell others to read this.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loved how the handmaidens blushed when the prince said "oh but your handmaidens have kissed like this with their lovers" and the princess looks shocked and to them to confirm what he said.

Simply wonderful. I didn't feel like it was too short, although I wouldn't complain if there was more. I feel like rereading it even after finishing it. (which is rare for me to reread things, especially so soon after reading it the first time). Definitely would recommend it.
