From Taciturnity Scans:

Ever since the day Ran Kurono's older brother, was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she's a woman forever. For generations the Kurono family has served the Ohtori family as their First Knight, but 11 other lower knights with ill intentions of using the Ohtori family's authority vie for that title. Not only that, but Sei is being tested to see if she is suitable for having the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei's trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei's untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.

This manga serious gets better and better. The ending of each chapter always leaves me on the edge of my seat and wanting to read more. It's one of those manga where it's hard to predict what will happen next!

It got me hooked, but I have to say that I'm still waiting for the typical soujo manga. I still have hopes for this, I still think that it won't be "I don't understand these feelings I have" or "why do I feel like this for this person" puaj!... but something epic and worth reading like "I know how I feel and I will fight against it"
I'm on chapter 9 and I believe I saw a light at the end of the tunnel and that the manga might just go in that direction, we'll see.

I have to say that the set-up is pretty good. It's interesting and hooked me because of how the series is currently going with the introduction of its characters.

Right now the manga is up to chapter 8 and I'm kinda frustrated with the relationship status of

Ran and Ibara. If this manga continues with normal shoujo mangas, then those two will get together in the end. I understand that Ran has gone through so much and she deserves a great guy like Ibara. But I'd rather see Sei and Ibara get together, however that's most likely not possible. It's probably because I'm more of a fan of Sei than Ran. I'm sure that they will probably bring in another character that will compliment Sei's characteristics.

I guess I'll just have to wait and see smile

UPDATE: I really didn't like the ending. I felt that the manga could have done more to make it more memorable...well at least for me.

So far, Decent

I've read a LOT of shoujos and this one is... okay. Decent.
The pacing of the story is well done so far, better than other mangas. Since there's only 4 chapters out, you pretty much don't know anything.

There hasn't been a good gender bender manga out recently, so i'll be watching for this to develop. who knows, it may be good in the future.

Right now, the artwork is gorgeous. crisp lines, good scanlation work, etc. However, the main characters are a bit dull right now... I expect this to pick up by the 8th chapter though.

And by that I mean that this manga is "hot property" - the kind of manga that will keep rocketing in popularity because more and more people discover how awesome it is. Seriously, this has the potential to be another one of those great shoujo epics, like Skip Beat...

Not to sound like a false prophet, but I really do mean it. Just the first few chapters of this have more intensity and emotional grip in them than several volumes of your average shoujo dross. These are interesting characters with loads of back-story, and even when you think it's going to be predictable, it turns out not to be. The main character is sexy beyond belief, both in form and function, both as "man" and as woman. Guh. And her thorny exterior isn't the sort of faux-aggression we see from so many wannabe tough girls in shoujo - this girl is the real deal, forged of iron, implacable and thus ten times more seductive than a thousand Bambi-eyed fashionistas.

Just sayin'.

Read this or regret it! My only fear is that the mangaka might hurry things up and conclude this before it has the potential to become the epic I foresee it becoming, but by God, Nishikata-sensei, please don't make this less than what it could be. Please.

Yey!!! Having the honor of being the first post!!! Anyway, as you can see from the picture, the art is phenomenal. Even among all manga out there, this has to be near the top. I am a big fan. Regarding the plot, it is AWESOME!!! I'm reading this at 2:42 AM, trying my hardest to not pass out, but it is AWESOME!!! At this time I usually blow off a lot of manga, but this is just that sweet.

The plot is very unique, and very refreshing. The idea of a cross dressing girl is nothing new, but the way it's done here is quite... beautiful. The self-sacrifice I really like, in addition to the complication of the fiancee whom I'm thinking won't go for his fiancee. Anyway, very beautiful art, characters that have depth and are very worthwhile watching, a plot that keeps me glued to my monitor... what else can I say? It's awesome.
