In return for a business loan of 50 million yen, the prestigious Kamiya family gave their daughter Haine away to the Otomiya family. Haine, now an Otomiya, is appointed to the student council of the exclusive Imperial Academy, a private school for the aristocracy. Even though Haine is of proper lineage to be on the council, she finds herself struggling to find her place among the many secrets of its elite members, especially those of the president who holds her heart - Shizumasa Togu, aka "the Emperor."

Haine has been in love with Shizumasa Togu from the day she read the picture book he wrote as a child. She enrolls the Imperial Academy to be close to him and is accepted as a member of the student council. But with that, dark secrets start to reveal themselves! Why does "The Emperor" act differently? Is Haine really in love with Shizumasa? Why did her father sell her and why doesn't her mother write to her anymore?

Includes the following extra stories:

• Kusame and Komaki and the Key of Love in vol. 5
After Komaki confesses and Kusame accepts unwillingly, Kusame tries to break up with her, but how?

Shoujo Eve Ringo Jikake no 24-ji (Eve's Applework 24 Hours)
"Kawaii”... Eve has come to hate this word. "Kawaii" has ruined her life and made her a social outcast. Yet she still has hopes Niikawa will return her feelings for him, that is if the rowdy class idol Kashii doesn't spoil everything first!

Umi no Sakyuugi Yasoukyoku (Nocturne) in vol. 11
Searching for the meaning of people's lives is the mission that is given by God. The reason for my birth... It's okay if it was just to meet you that night.

another Tanemura Arina gem   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

Dramatic, beautiful artwork. The plot seems typically shoujo but the plot twists are still a good touch - it's better-planned than something like Special A or . It takes some time to get used to each character's appearance -- a lot of them look alike -- but their personalities are all distinct and recognizable. Tanemura's stories are always a bit strange with weird plot jumps, strange connections, unpredictable personality moments that don't always match, and last-second twists, so in that sense it's like all her other works.

The ending isn't surprising. She spent a lot of the manga confused about the issue, and it's realistic that she would still end up confused at the end - and it's a happy ending anyhow. There's plenty of open-ended series (like Penguin Brothers or Taranta Ranta) that aren't ruined by the open-endedness, and this is another one where it works well. No one ends up miserable and unhappy at the end.

The characters, at least, have more personality and depth than something like Special A or Skip Beat.

Haine and Usio looked so much alike. Also, several other characters look like one another, too. It's a given but at least change the hair style or something. I got confused because I always mistook one character for another one, so I dropped and quit reading.

Shinshi Dômei Cross   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

After the end of FullMoon wo Sagashite I was a little bit surprised to read a new manga from Tanemura-sensei without fantasy. But I started to reading it and now, I'm a fan. The story is not so good like FullMoon wo Sagashite, but her arts become better and better. And the story became also better and better with every volume. Now, Shinshi has as much as volumes like FullMoon and Kamikaze kaito Jeanne and Shinshi Dômei Cross is going to be the first volume EIGHT of Tanemura-sensei!
The characters in Shinshi are very deep and sometimes mysterious. I love it.

i luv it! (except there's always someone with blue hair for arina tanemura but who cares?!)
it's sorta sad but so cute and funny.
the minor shounen-ai and shoujo-ai gets on my nerves but since they dont refer to the main pairings i dont mind too much!^^
i'm on ch 32 and waitin for more (just barely missed smashing my computer when i was thrashing around in impatience) ;P

absolutely beautiful artwork. i wonder how long the mangaka spends on each page. the characters are absolutely lovable, even the "bad" characters. the story line is so intricate and complex if you try to explain it to someone because theres so much to it, but you understand it easily(for the most part) when you read it. its definately deserves a 10

i think the art gets boring after a while, and the story contains some pretty well known cliche in shoujo manga....hooked me up to chapter 30's just not quite my taste...
