From Sweet Lunacy:

Armelia is an orphan girl who sings for work. One day, she met a boy, Luce, and fell in love with him. Unfortunately, Luce was kidnapped by the notorious pirate, Scar. Armelia swore to herself that one day she would rescue Luce. But the truth is not what she thought it was...

*Includes a side story called Haru wa Sakura:

Shou wants to be a doctor, but female doctors are forbidden. Takao is a delinquent, whose bad reputation is known by many. Somehow these two people cross paths and a connection is made. Was it just a chance meeting or will something more come out of it?

Nice read but it wasn't anything special. Their relationship was cute and kinda predictable just like the plot. It didn't really me when we found out that Scar was Luce. It would be nice if she continued this smile

I love the bonus story. It is a bit confusing but it's realy deep and the characters share a nice but rather realistic relationship. Wanted itself is good too, but, as the other reviews critiqued, it is to short ( to me it suffers a loss of a strong middle and any end whatso ever). Hopefully Hino Matsuri will present us with a continuation.

Cute shoujo, but predictable. Scar is the typical closet gentleman and Armelia helpless girl, but they are a cute pair. :3 Since I am an avid reader of pirate history, the Robin Hood-esque flair is slightly off-putting, and Armelia is no Anne Bonny or Mary Read, but nevertheless it's an sweet idealist hate/love story.

I really liked "Wanted". I sort of wish it was a little longer just because I like a good long read, so here is to hoping Hino Matsuri gets to return to it in the future. I found it to be an enjoyable read, and would recommend this to others.

I really like the story. It has really good plot. Even though it been years since I read when I write my stories for English class or the kids I baby-sit I use the same plot (though I must edit the rough parts) smile ^-^ (: *u*

If you read reviews about this series or read the last page of wanted it states that Matsuri Hino does not plan to leave wanted with just one volume. She says that she has lots of ideas for the next volume. The only reason she is not continueing it now is because she is busy with Vampire Knight. She says after she is done with VK she will go back and work on WANTED. And we're in luck. VK seems to be nearing the end.

It was a really good story--very cute--but the ending seemed kinda rushed. I don't think it just be called a "completed manga"yet....
Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I loved the Pirate thing.

it's a cute manga.
not as good as Vampire knight and marupuri but hey, its only 1 volume.. although it would be cool if it was longer (:.
the art is really good well duh, it's Hino Matsuri. haha.
but.. im going to give it an 8.5 because..
I wish they woulda kissed more. i mean they kissed once but it was different.. I also wish they could of told each other how they feel about one another. it was cute how he always protected her and such though. but still, iit would be cool if they said "i love you" or "i like you" haha. also, the ending was okay.
