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.

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.

I've been waiting such a long time to read this! Her artwork has improved a lot and the story plot is very interesting so far. Some parts may be a little cliche and obvious but I still want to read more.

I'm surprised this manga ended up being incredible! I loved the plot, the development and the characters! I especially love how everything (well almost everything) was resolved in the end. You wont regret reading this so i highly recommend it. Its also very unique. The girl isn't a air head who's super hot and the guy isn't a "cool guy" who's so smug and perfect. Its really a shoujo manga that will lead you to a different and amazing "Asahi" bigrazz

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.

First time reading a bodyguard romance manga and absolutely loved it. Lot of twists and mysteries and good romance and action. The only setbak was the cliche of the bodyguard needing to be saved by the person she is suposed to protect. Art is good as well.

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.

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.

This work is a lot like Tokyo Crazy Paradise, except shorter and less detailed. The heroines of both series have suprising past. Both heroines were not all that fond of their employer in the beginning...

Asahi is cool, but I really like Tsukasa better because of her strength, both as a character and as a fighter. Tsukasa is better at kicking ass! There are some shoujo cliches that I find somewhat annoying. She's a bodyguard, but she seems to get saved more than she actually saves Sakuya.

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.

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.
