Princess Nakaba of Senan is forced to marry Prince Caesar of the enemy country Belquat, tantamount to becoming a hostage.

Shakin' the world   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

Forget the rest of the line, this is your medieval fantasy. Overall, this is a pretty decent read. It stands out over time though, the relationship between Nakaba and Loki, the mains, made me come back after half a year.
The art can be simply put as above average, and higher. Fewer and fewer mangas show potential, but this one is a gem. Original with character representation, with hints of shared traits from the changes in dress.
The plot line is quick in development, but no fear- it gives some time for recuperation, like a great novel. The secrets and ulterior motives of the countries and everyone heighten the tension and make readers want more. The mysteries behind Nakaba's power start to unravel.
The change of the characters make you wonder about the original plans of the characters. Reading it a second time, everything, makes one feel Loki's and Nakaba's pain. Nakaba changes quickly, from the opposite end of the spectrum, along with the prince, Caesar. Loki mind starts to drift to a deeper, darker hold on the world. Sudden jolts in the situation bring out adaptations of the character in attempt to reach stability.
The romance is quick, but it really hints that there will be something complicated in the future. Very serious at most times, but sometimes it can be a little 'lol.' Conflict is good and exciting. I recommend this to someone who likes spunky but sweet romance, but not someone who likes decoding plot lines. (Maaybe too simple.)

I personally thought this story was pretty unique. A princess with unique power, a prince, etc etc. I liked it somewhat but my only complaint was that it took forever for the next chapter to come out and be translated. I picked this up a while ago and I just read it again recently.
Plot 8.7/10
I had very high expectations for the plot because of her eye's power. This story itself isn't very deep but it's a worthwhile manga to read.
Characters: 7/10
I didn't like the characters very much because some of them rapidly change and it just jumbles up to a mess. The prince was very mean at first but then changed into like a completely different person that doesn't even match up to his old personality. Also the main characters, Nakaba is your typical kind and sweet character.
Art: 9/10
The art is clear and beautiful. Their outfits are very detailed and precise. Beautiful art.

I feel as if the love is very empty and it does not convince me.
For some reason all the characters lost their original edge by becoming bipolar people? Especially Ceasar who looks insane with rage one second and then a cute little boy the next - not buying it.
There's no buildup in character and the "arcana" aspect of this is lost quite easily.
Art is typical shoujo and unoriginal.
4 for original twist and effort in adding sub-people in.

At first I thought this story won't last for 5 volumes after this author's mangas are normally one-shot. So, I thought why not give this a try. So ta-da, I went and read this manga which only had less than 10 chapters back then. However, I was drawn to the story and was always awaiting for a new chapter. Story line could be a bit confusing but I find that Nakaba and Caesar are really cute in there. Art was amazing like always. Characters were really cute too. It always left off in suspension which makes us craving for the next chapter. Thus this manga is really worth a try biggrin

Thus far, I'm not sure where I stand on this story. It's not terrible, although some the characters are cliche and annoying (*cough* Nakaba especially *cough*), and the art is good. And the plot is at least a good idea - I'm hesitant to say that the mangaka has fully lived up to the potential it has though.

The thing is, it's not . . . compelling, I guess? I'm not anxiously awaiting every chapter to come out; in fact, I'm several chapters behind at the moment because I just don't care enough to want to read them. There aren't many surprises in this, and I feel like I can predict everything that's going to happen, from the little stuff, to the bigger things like pairings.

Maybe it's just me, though. And the art is excellent, so give it a shot for that anyway.

I really didn't expect to love this fantasy-shoujo-romance combo...fantasy's just not my type...BUT THIS?! this has just amazed so bad!!

at first, the art really attracted me to it..then, reading the plot, it intrigued me...then reading the first chapter...all the more i don't wanna stop!! AWESOME!! and i'm looking out for some action..!! this had fed my thirst well..!! a must-read!! i LOVE how the story was constructed...the characters and the leads...they're so NOT annoying..!! the characters were placed well in the story. it's not as if they were made for the plot. instead, they perfectly made sense. their roles really has to do with what's about to happen.they acted as elements not as stepping stones. they blended well. that it made me wanna cry out and beg for more!

THIS is something YOU shoud NOT miss!!

10 stars? Really confused ??

This manga is overrun with cliche, overused themes and so predictable that I can write the story to its end without having read more than the first two chapters.

This is very disappointing compared to Toma Rei's other works. While they still lack immensely in the plot area, they at least were good for a light read.

This manga, however, is unbearable. There is no way that the heroine would be able to act the way she does with so much psychological damage. Also, there are too many characters like her who are weak and stupid but is somehow well-liked by a majority of the male cast. Justice does not always equate protecting every living thing in your path. Her naiivety annoys me, the plot is thin and drags on, too much fluff and not enough explanations, etc.

A total flop overall. The only thing saving this manga is the art.

0/10: Story
6/10: Art
0/10: Characters

This probably is one of TOMA Rei's best manga so far. The art work is great and more complicated than usual, I'm actually hoping that this manga would be sold in my country, I'd love to include this in my collection!
The story is complex but not boring, it made me forgot my drowsiness! The heroine is smart and brave, quite likeable. The other characters are very cool too.
I have read the Chinese version too, and I like it so far.

When you combine arranged marriage and shoujo there are certain expectations that build up. Not to say that this manga doesn't meet those expectations but it's got a little more... darkness than I was expecting. There are slight variations in this story and in the characters that make it different from other stories that are similar. I only hope that this is carried through to the end. It's quite interesting though. Also, I do like how there are humans and human-beast people. It's not fair how they treat them but it's an interesting variation.
