i totaaaally agree with the prince thing. it seemed kind of degrading to mio.. (eh, she asked for it.) plus it distracted me from the story xD
it had it's ups and downs. yes, the twists were nice. yes, the smut was good. ... yes. her brother was so cute and mischevious~!

i didn't like the guy. i mean, i liked him at points, but his arrogance and just.. it was dumb. and even if he was "heartbroken", how could he go around being nasty and cold to mio and

kissing other girls?!?!

Too much rape. 8| And it's not only the main guy that attempts to rape her, almost EVERY guy attempts it.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Even her little brother attempts to rape her!
Ugh. I hate manga that has a bunch of guys attempt to rape the girl, and it's completely okay because he's hot or somethings stupid like that, so it's brushed off quickly. The girl is weak (although, admittedly she's not as weak as other shoujo characters), the guy has no character development (he's "hot" and a rapist, that's it), and the story is boring. I didn't think the art was that good either, the big heads bothered me. And why is the guy completely perfect? He's rich, smart, and handsome. I hate guys that are perfect, but the girl has a ton of flaws; it just makes it seem like she's not good enough for him.

the meaning of smut!

well, for those of you who complain about how the male lead always sexually harasses the female lead in this series.... this is my advice for you all...


beacuse the meaning of smut is "Deals with series that are considered profane or offensive, particularly with regards to sexual content"

Anyway, I really like this story, i think the art is very good, and it is very romantic too~
I highly recommend it to people who love romance and don't mind SMUT smile

i've definitely read worse

forgive me as i finished this awhile ago, so my memory is a little foggy, but i thought this manga was fine for smut. i didn't come into it with high expectations, and i was satisfied. plenty of drama, of course, but i found some of the twists were shocking enough to keep me on the edge of my seat. maybe i just haven't read enough of this genre, so they could've all been overdone cliches, but hey, they worked for me.

as far as noncon - many yaoi are far far worse with the "let's not call it rape cuz in the end you liked it. somewhere. deep down. yeah." and from what i remember, she was pretty ok with it at the time. i'll agree the main guy was too forceful, but this IS a smutty shoujo & that is just the archetype i guess.

one thing i'll agree on w/ all the haters - she really needs to learn that he has a real name that is not "Prince" at least it wasn't "miaka/tamahome"-level annoying, though. Bottom line: come in expecting smut and disengage your brain, & you'll get a fairly entertaining ride.

It started out okay...

...but I could barely finish it. The start seemed interesting and promising but after several chapters of the exact same thing, I just finished it to have it finished. I hate leaving books and manga incomplete, and I was sort of hoping that the ending would be better. I was wrong. Good to read if you have absolutely nothing better.

I don't even want to try to talk about how bad this is.
If you're reading it for the art, it's not worth it. Honestly, it's not. There are lots of pretty art out there, and even if this is pretty, it's not worth reading for all the pathetic plot you'll read.
She never gets raped. In the end, she even willingly submits into it, 'I want him to touch me...Why?'
'Prince' she shouts when he sexually harasses her. 'Prince' at the very end when he comes to her in her need. If I got 50 cents for everytime she's called him 'Prince' in the series, I'd probably get a few hundred bucks already.
I think the guy has a name, Mio. It's 'Shouhei'.
If this just crossed the line a little, it would've been categorized in hentai because there is barely, absolutely no plot at all.
The mangaka tries to incoporate the dark past tragedy cliche and oh the woe, pity the main character crap in but I don't sympathize with either of them. You will be scarred. 85% is smut, attempted rape, kissing, molesting, 5% is perverted thoughts and crappy plot attempts (EPIC FAIL) and the rest is dialogue but which really is pointless.

bad story. very annoying plot with annoying (and dumb) main girl that i skipped to the last five pages of the last chapter. and why does she keep calling him prince even after they're practically going out?? i would have given this a 1 but art was nice..

I don't like the guy or girl much. The girl, because she gets herself in situations where the guys stripping her in the middle of the street. I don't think she shows enough girl power >.>
The guy is very....controlling in many ways, plus it's annoying that he's like perfect and the girl is a dumbo. i like the art and the twists of plot, but usually, I never read a manga that has a constant changing plot where you think this one moment and its something else because it's just too confusing sometimes, plus the drama is very agoniziing at times. overall, this isn't a bad manga

the whole thing with hina and prince was disgusting (some spoilers, if he was just trying to scare him why would he start kissing him like that and try and take off his clothes, that was just messed up, im not sure why he''d do that wiht another guy, if he is gay he shouldnt try and be with the main girl) how can she be attracted to a guy that was just kissing her brother, i'd be too disgusted to ever kiss him again. plus, when mio ran away was the prince sleeping around? he never did say, does anyone know??
