With the author's characteristic humor and creativity, the work describes one girl's fantasy adventure.
Yvienne Magnolia lives in a small village and her beauty turns the villagers' heads, yet she would never have imagined the grand future destined for her.

Because a count tries to kidnap her, Yvienne flees to the Lowood Institution for wizardry and witchcraft, forced to leave her family.

In the school, she meets interesting people, like January Lightsphere who comes from a noble but peculiar family, or Lariatte, an heir to an orthodox fighter family, who might yet become her closest friend.

Couldn't read past vol 6. They shouldn't list this as a romance, it's more fantasy. The only romance was between 2 boys, January and Daughter. Any romance for Yvienne was at best ambiguous and lacking of any real central male lead. But if you like plot after plot after plot, then read this.

i got into ciel because of the art, and now i'm staying for the art and the characters. the plot (on vol 11 right now) seems to be on the verge of an exciting development, too. so far it's been well-plotted but not brilliant, but so much is still to happen, so who knows. plus it's been getting better, in the beginning it seemed a little afraid to take itself seriously (inappropriate comedy in the middle of tense scenes anyone? biggrin ) but later scenes have more gravity to them.

back to the art. the character designs are very cute. (yvienne might be the "resident beauty" but i find lari's hair to be the most gorgeous thing in the entire manwha.) anyone into the slender and pretty shoujo style will find this a treat. some panels needed more background detail for a scenery maniac like me, though, haha.

now to the characters. all of them are likable, and a smart, confident, practical girl like yvienne is indeed refreshing. she has this pixieish quality sometimes, and that's cute. her mom is pure awesome. january needs all he hugs he can get. daughter is rather dashing. larry is adorable and needs more screen time. the blossoming romance has (so far) been handled passably too, even if it didn't go in the direction i'd have liked. ;;>_>

...speaking of romance, sorry but DEAR GOD january and daughter do strange things to my heart.

well. to clarify i don't think it's bad writing and rhim ju-yeon is clearly aware of its unsavory nature! i still think its handled passably, but still, ugh, the consequences are just too much for me to bear.

also: i find myself liking yvienne more now her that her flaws are showing starkly, even though i want to smack her in the face; january and daughter cannot be any more adorkably painful (except they can, and are, by every passing chapter); and lari, oh lari, she's amazing and beautiful and my heart hurts, i wish things could have been different for her.

Excellent! So far (10 volumes) it's such a great manhwa. NOT your typical manhwa where it looks promising at first by hinting and dropping awesome clues but never tie up the loose ends. Give it a try, don't frown upon it because it's korean because this one is actually VERY good smile

Ciel is very well-plotted. It shows how prepared the manhwaka was before she started it. There're many clues and hints but they're followed by proper consequences. The story is lovely, funny, warm, dark, exciting, dokidoki and many other emotions.

It art is great, made it so pleasant to read. This manhwa has everything! I don't have anything I dislike, maybe except for the fact that it's not popular enough as it deserves to be thus the scans are pretty slow sad but I'm grateful enough for the current group that's doing it because I once gave up on it because the scan was so slow (i'm impatient), but now it's up to 10 volumes smile

I'm rather sad that while waiting for the new Ciel releases, I don't know what to read because this one set the bar high.

To be honest, I've always thought that this was going to be boring (as I'm not too fond of the fantasy genre), however, a chapter into this manhwa and I was already addicted, needless to say. It's great. I love the heroine, she's hilarious and lovable. The other side characters are quite likable as well. And I love the stories behind every characters, it makes the story extra interesting. I definitely love it and would recommend it to anybody who's having second thoughts!

Not your run-of-the-mill fantasy manhwa. I'm not much of a manhwa person (I find the art a bit too stylized for my liking) and while the girls in Ciel are gorgeous, the guys (I usually need my dose of bishie goodness..) are somewhat lacking--but that doesn't even matter, because their charisma just leaps off the page. Ciel contains, really, everything you could ask for in a "shoujo" (what's the term in Korean?) fantasy manhwa--a strong heroine, beautiful and brave but with flaws enough to make her likeable, intricate detail with the magical elements, monster butt-whooping, swords in canes, and, of course, dragons. Always love them dragons. I love it, and I can't wait for more!

This series has gorgeous art, a great plot and believable characters. While I'm overwhelmingly a shonen action fan, this is my second favorite series (second to nausicaa). the only complaint possible is that the story isn't as fast paced as some other series, but I find that to be a strength, not a weakness.

Edit: now I can express why I like this: it's shoujo (or the korean equivalent) while being able to stand on elements other than romance, unlike the overwhelming majority of it's peers. Also, it does not drown the readers in angst. In short, it's more than a romance, and avoids melodrama.

One of the most beautiful art I've ever seen, like seriously. And I really loved the story, also. I can't wait for her to become more powerful. But I've only read what Mangafox has, so now i'm going to read the rest that I didn't know was translated already Yayy!
I do recommend this to anyone, though so far it's not shounen or very action-based. But even if the story was disgustingly horrible (of which the opposite is true), it would still be worth it to just look at the art.

Artwork isnt a good enough reason for me to read a manga..Im READING a manga not looking at it...First volume was boring as hell..they explained how she got to the academy and she met the first person, but good god...first battle we saw shes suppsoed to be the strongest there and yet could barely handle a starfish? Sucks that the good looking guys cant be stronger than her...a story where only females can succeed

First off, the art is absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking - the best art in a manhwa I've ever seen. However, the plot and the manga itself didn't really do it for me so yeah...

Overall, I do recommend this manga.
