From Aerandria Scans:

Shiro is a white crow. Because of his unusual color, he's often bullied by the other black crows. One day, he's hurt badly because the others ganged up on him, and he was saved by a girl. Moved by the girl's gentle heart, Shiro asked a devil to let him turn into a human. However, there's one condition: Shiro will have to do at least one bad deed a day, otherwise, his body will crumble. Can Shiro really fulfill this contract?

Nice path, ending too sudden.

It's a nice tale. A good crow that wants to be a human to be with a human girl and has to be bad to remain in that state.

The art wasn't as good as in Sabaki no Mon, the oneshot I read before and liked the art enough to want to see more of that mangaka, but was okay.

I like crows :3 And I like tales.
This story could be a nice 1 volume manga but wasn't that shabby as oneshot either. I just didn't like how the end got resolved. Way too sudden and illogical.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Shiro saved the girl and that was such a selfless action that he dissolved immediately and was a crow again back at the devil's. The girl cried, probably even heart broken as the devil said her sadness is deep and as reward for being so mean - even when actually unintended - he gets turned back into a human without conditions and makes the girl happy again? Makes no sense. His accidental evil deed was void then. Turned into the opposite. That resolve was way too sudden and illogical. This kind of ruined the story for me.

I thought it was cute but the ending left me confused, so I can't say I enjoyed it. The story started out good but it didn't flow. First it's shown that she's crying, then the next scene they're together and happy. It was so sudden, it took me awhile to figure out that the guy was Shiro and not another guy. I think the author crammed in too much in the story without enough pages to fully develop the story. If only it was longer. Sweet, but fleeting. Also the cover pic is misleading.

It was nice. Can't really find the words to explain it. It wasn't a masterpiece, it wasn't bad, but it was a little bit better then an ok. What does that make it pretty good?

Either way, if you have some free time, take a look at it.

Again, I adore Sakura Tsukuba. It's a pity she has so many oneshots, because a lot of the plots she has really make me want to read more! I liked this one, it was cute and made me feel happy. However, it definitely isn't the best of her works. I think it's best as a oneshot. I don't think the girl character had enough background to be developed much (well, it was a oneshot, so... I can't really blame Tsukuba too much). It was a good read, though! Not too memorable, though. I do recommend it as a quick read, though biggrin

A one-shot isn't long enough for this manga

This is a cute story about a crow wanting to be a human, so he can love the human girl in the same form. This girl had rescued him before when he was attacked as a crow. He makes a pact with the 'devil' to become human, but in return he has to do a 'bad' deed.

This is a cute one-shot, but the plot was way too deep to just cram into a one-shot. The ending felt VERY, very rushed, and so were the parts about the crow staying with the human girl.

The pacing was off, which I blame on the fact that it was a one-shot. The beginning was nice and read fine though. The crow (forgot his name) is a nice mellow character. Of course he has to be all bishie and sparkliness when he becomes human, which I think doesn't add anything to the story other than him feeling more confident. He had a deep personality though.

However, the girl just plain sucks. She might as well be a stock character, working in the background. The only thing we know is that she's ditzy (what an airhead), and that she rescues animals who are hurt. That's it. She doesn't have much going besides the stereotypical clumsy attitude that plagues the shoujo genre. Compared to the crow, she might as well not exist, she's a sorry excuse for a character.

The ending was way too rushed, as if the mangaka realized that she had a certain amount of pages left, and crammed in as much as she could within the last 3 pages. It felt way too rushed, and it really brings down the overall quality of the manga.

If this had more chapters (and more personality for the heroine), it would definitely be a great manga. But as it stands now, it's just a cute, but very rushed manga.

Firstly, lets all compliment Tsukuba for her totally cute drawings of the girls and fantastic drawings of the bishies^^
This manga was pretty cute.
Spoiler: Shiro is DA bishie and yet he gets bullied?? like even in his human form i thought he was pretty damn hwat and even when he began to crack, he was hwat.

Also, the fact that the girl in this manga isn't overly pretty with over-realistic beauty but still has a pure prettiness is what made me think that these characters went well as a duo.
BISHIE + pure beauty = Adorable-ness>>

I think this story was very nice and one of those one-shots that actually sort-of fulfill you even though it's only one chapter. Although i liked Tonari no Inuyama-kun at the same level, i had to rate this one a little lower ONLY because ... i guess you can't really use cliché but because i think there could have been a bit more plot in this because this manga had many different topics such as (gay men, weird devil, flirtacious women, etc) rather than the short list of things that made up Inuyama-kun.

I still recommend this manga because it is something that you can read for a break and be satisfied with the cute adorning romance..

Im sorry. Give me 5 seconds please. Phew..
The character is so gorgeous, of course, the male character O_O;;
It's one of the reason I pick this oneshot actually, I adore manga-ka that can create gorgeous character smile
And of course, the story. It's unusual (?) maybe and I love the relationship. It's so cute and pure smile the white crow, even though he's an animal, ecxchange to become a human to be with love one biggrin
animal (crow) + human = Love embarrassed

It's heart-warming with its own out standing story and I love the twist before the ending T_T Why am I crying? Because, it's sad sad

As expected from Tsukuba Sakura; beautiful art and a good story that leaves you satisfied and going, "Awww."

Since this is a oneshot, there isn't much room to expand it into something greater, but the story was very interesting and the concept is a rather unique twist on the "ugly duckling" idea. The message behind it is really touching, as well, and I was totally left with warm fuzzies after I saw how the conflict was resolved for the main character. I'd have to disagree with spiel and Conquestor; Shiro no Keiyaku was handled very well considering the space Tsukuba was given (a oneshot). Shiro's character not only came to terms with his own problems, but learnt about what really matters to be a human. Very sweet.

Like other mangas from this author, you get an "Awwww" when reading it, but it ends to early to become a truly great manga. A good read, but you'll forget it in a few days.
