Please!!! Somebody!!! Take this manga from Demo Doa!!! Or Demo Doa - stop doing THIS!!! It's impossible to read, it's impossible to see!! What's the point in translationconfused?? It's so f... irritating!!! I understand your point, but it's not the way you do it!!! You're ruining good drawing and good and interesting plot. I'm not dropping this manga. I just don't understand what happened in the last chapters at all!!!!

Decent but those WATERMARKS!

It's pretty good for a shoujo, I'll give it that. It's like pyrite, imitating a good manga.
The story's okay, nothing special. It's kind of fun but the character development is slow. And yes, like many others, I have to complain about the watermarks.
In some chapters they're 80% of the page!! It's crazy! Some crucial moments are ruined all so that you have "Doko Demo Doa Manga Scanlations" ingrained on your mind. I understand the use of watermarks, and in some chapters they're ok. They're large, but they don't cover up anything too important (background, for example).
I don't understand the need for them to be SO huge and in the way!!

Love this Manga; Hate the Watermark

This manga has always been on my wishlist, and I only got to it today. I noticed a problem with watermarks somewhere halfway into the current scans and just got to chapter nine, where it's come to the point in which I can't even see half of the page anymore.

I figured the first few pages would be like that because they don't want anyone to rip off their scans, but then I lost my patience halfway into the chapter.

The last watermark was fine because I could see partially read the text, but this watermark is ridiculous.

Until Doko Demo Doa makes the watermark less obnoxious or another group picks up this manga, I won't be reading it.

That being said, I really do love this manga and am glad I picked it up. It's a shame for me to set it aside again, but in order to preserve my good impression of it, it's the only thing I can do.

I'm seriously going to stop reading this manga if they are still going to cover the pages totally with the mark they have (well, I haven't been able to read it anyway because of the marks which is really ridiculous), unless they minimize the mark or someone else take it and do a little better job
I hope I won't have to stop reading it so PLEASE, do something about it

Utterly ruined by watermarks

I understand that Doko Demo Doa doesn't want their series to be uploaded to some other websites etc etc, but they could just at least make their water mark to be translucent/semi transparent instead of totally opaque and stamp it a over the character faces. Turning so many people off just because of the lousy watermark. Totally ridiculous. And sometimes the watermarks even got so bad until the quotes were totally blocked off, making the readers unable to read. They should just at least minimum, minimize the size of the watermark instead of making it so big. Totally have no idea what their group is doing.

October 31st, 2011, 7:50pm's an amazing series and I don't want to sound ungrateful, because I know scanslations take time and effort. but i don't understand the point of scanslating anything if the group decides to cover half a page of the manga for every single page. It's enough to stop anyone from reading it.

Edit: ...They are still doing the same thing. I think it's really time to drop it. It's such a shame because they translate a lot of other good manga too. I would rather them not do any scanslations at all.

It is a very beautifully drawn manga with a funny,engaging story. I actually like the main character unlike many shoujo's and the power and influence of an oiran in Edo period shouldn't be ignored by readers making them think they were common prostitutes .BUT Doko Demo Doa Manga Scanlations ruined it with their watermarks. They've put their huge marks right on the face of the bishies,I'm actually wondering why they bother to translate it if they want to ruin it ( it's a good thing they aren't the mangaka or rightful owner and they are borrowing the whole thing themselves)

I enjoyed the chapters done by the previous scanlators, but I seriously can't get past the HUGE FRIGGIN' "WATERMARKS" from the current scanlator. They seriously get in the way of my good time. I can't see the characters' expressions, I can't enjoy what I'm reading. I'm going to have to drop this and just find it in raw, because this is RIDICULOUS.

It's absolutely amazing! Sure it's not totally original! But who really cares? As long as the story draws you in and tells it in a different perspective, then go for it! The characters are so adorable and the main girl utterly cracks me up, she's very unusual for a shoujo heroine! ;D

My rate: Art: 8 Story:5 Character:2
----> total :5
The concept of this manga is to introduce courtesan as part of the culture in Edo period--->nothing against it.But the whole thing just gradually moves toward the wrong way as the story goes on.If Tsubaki and Shin keep up with their game,what the hell will they archive in the end? The more i keep reading,the more hatred builds up....
Don't know about the other,but I'm so feed up with the crossdressing drag,there are just too many manga about it....
