From Aerandria Scans:
In this grim and realistic take on classic fairy tales, Prince Ludwig, a female corpse collector, is ordered by his father to find himself a wife more suitable than the women he often brings into the castle. Along with his servant Wilhelm, they travel across the land in search of fair maidens from classic stories in hopes of finding Ludwig a wife.

insane male procrastinator.
well, he's not very typical,
but the twist on Grimm's fairy tails was an added bonus.
a little dark at times, but the comedic relief lightened it up a bit.
a lot lighter than yuki kaori-sama's other works.

Comedy w/ a touch of romance, Ludwig Kakumei is a crazy twist from your sappy fairytales. An awesome refresher after too many cliche shoujo mangas.

My favorite series by Kaori Yuki... Art is beautiful. Some dark moments, but generally not as dark as most of her other works. The adaptations of the Brothers Grimm's stories are amazing. Storyline is very interesting, although it does get a little weak in volume 4. The ending is awesome though!

Kaori Yuki, even with lighthearted series such as this one, can spin it into a brilliant story, worth reading. The art is as always top notch. And it adds an interesting twirl to typical fairy tales. Good job as always, Kaori Yuki.

I wouldn't have given it a 8 if it didn't appeal, did I? Really enjoyed the series and art, just complaining about the lack of this manga and the slow progress.

Ludwig Kakumei is one of my favourite mangas by Kaori Yuki. As for the genres, it's a very complex manga: mixture of comedy, horror, drama and fantasy in Grimm style. The stories are sometimes gross but there's a source of humor in every chapter and the drawing style is awesome as expected from Kaori Yuki. As for the ending, I'm very curious because I doubt that there's a girl in the world of the tales who is much to Ludwig's taste and neither an evil person nor an idiot.
