I first saw the anime for this series. It was pretty good in my opinion, a tough guy making a servant out of a tough young woman and threatening to kill anyone strong. The anime touched lightly on some romance, but the manga hints a LOT at it. In fact, just the little bits of it are enough to keep a girl happy without going too shoujo. The drawing is very well done, and the characters develop really nicely. This is great!

first few volume is not very captivating.... just so-so....
but quite good to follow, then when it reach 11 and up volume, become more and more interesting,
and I cant stop read it! especially when it reach 20 volume and up....
one good point is, the ending is good! I love the last chapter! a story without word... but full of meaning.
Good Job Kamijyo Akiine-san!! >.<!!

In me opinion, this manga art and fighting scene is even on a par or a least nearly at the level of those top shounen.
The story is fine, but the never losing plot is a bit dull though most shounen go that way.
The settings of side characters is very nice. All of them is unique and likable.
Take Bleach as an example for this manga, there lines of characters, friends and foes, each of them fight each other, the enemy is always overwhelming but somehow we will manage to win.

BUT the 2 main characters is so damn dense, that make the whole plot shallow. It's a bit sad since this manga should be much better

Because it used to be my favorite manga I give it 9. But now that I think about it, the plot doesn't really stand out. As already said, only the art is great.. Somehow I loved every characters of this manga, that's why I'll buy all the volumes -when I get rich. And because it's my first shounen, and the manga that permitted me to do great encounters, it will stay special to me. Shinrei, Hotaru and Kyo are still the best~ =P

The generic shounen manga with nothin else to offer. Shallow n crappy for the one that searchin for a deeper meaning to their actions.

Good n action filled for those that strive for pantieshoots n fights (not to mention generic bullshit charaters).

Its pretty obivious which side I belong to, with other word this manga was nothing for me.

My impression from the 1st volume was this manga definitely well drawing, nice art! And the story quiet good. Then I continued to read it.... Even I bought SDK manga until last volume.
I really like hotaru and shin lei characters.
But really,,, the most absolute vital weakness point here is the battle. The good ones (they who stand on the kyo side) always win, no matter what the reason! Then there they come out new weapon, skill, etc during the fight (Compare before they were enemies of Kyo, --> Lost). And the ending story's sucked.
I sold my collection of this manga few years ago. And I forgot what the ending story was.
Guess it left me no impression... (story), only the art's good.

The art is really good and the story WAS good in the beginning. However i find the end very boring -_-" the plot goes no-where... The end and battles should have been shorter.
But well i love most of the character so i give a 7.

I have to say that I loved this manga from the beginning to the end. It's a very well-drawn manga and the artwork is absolutely amazing. The main character is badass and the storyline is very intressting.

One thing I didn't like about the manga - It was tooooo much fighting, but maybe it's because I'm a girl.

the story was really good, or I thought so in the begginning... the fact that everthing was so mysterious and Kyo seemed to kick as, but the more I read the more I started to realise that I overestimated this manga. The fact that one of the bad guys keept being called "that person" reminded me much of Harry Potter (Voldermort) and the fact that in the end "that person" wasnt even close to be the main evil in this story...

gah, I just felt like the author didnt think throu the story of this manga beforehand, it felt like he just started drawing it and then midways started to throw in strong character for Kyo to kill to fill the pages...

I dont mean that this manga is necessary bad, it is just that the story felt spontaneous and not well thought.. to bad couse it had so much potential. Not one of the best adventure/action mangas out there, but not one of the worst either
