If you consider that it was done almost a decade ago and still an up to date content, it is a great story. Probably would be great if you could see the anime first, because it is based on the band not the girl as the manga is. Shinjo Mayu makes a good job drawing and not giving the image of an decade old manga. The problem notice for all is around the heroine, who is too naive and yes, too many times plain dumb, making the story tiring in certain moments. She is too much medieval woman, always depending on her knight to tell her what to do or waiting to be saved, never learning with her bad experiences. Not considering these details, I love this manga, and have the complete series, some volumes first edition, and never get tired of re-reading the great ones. I only wish that Shinjo-san could have explored more the other characters' life stories as the anime did a little. Anyways it is worth reading and meeting a gorgeous rock-star-knight: Sakuya Ookoshi and his yummy band mates.

Well, I suppose in Kaikan Phrase's defense, it could have been worst. If you are a fan of smut, well, you'll get plenty. I actually like the artwork here, it's not horrible, not my favorite, but definitely on the good side of my preferences. I admire the eyes, which I think are the best parts. Smut scenes are done decently enough because I have seen worst.

The plot, however, was cliche, typical, and rather bland. Alright, musicians, with erotic music, wonderful...but why must the girl always be victimized? I like the concept of the band of Lucifer, it wasn't a horrible idea, but every chapter seems to revolve around the female protagonist in some way. I kind of stopped caring about must of the characters very early on the series. It's always boy meets girl, fall in love, and everyone is suddenly out for the female. Le typical of shoujo. >_>;

And as for the characters, if you dislike weak female leading characters, turn away now, or just enjoy the smut. Aine, well, she was better than the girl from Love Celeb, I'll give her that much, but other than that she was rather two-dimensional for my taste. I understand that she loves Sakuya but the fact that she often waits for him to save her, all those times she cried, I don't know, I just wish she would grow a backbone sometime soon. Some of the male characters were decent characters. Funny what a background can do for a character! Anyhow, it seemed to me that the characters I learned more about, their pasts, their families, not just their love interests, the more I liked them. However, the deeper glimpses into the other characters were very brief before going back to Aine and Sakuya.

All in all, if you crave smut, read it. If you crave a good storyline with smut, go read something else, like Midnight Secretary.

I think if you have a lot of time to kill, you should give this manga a try. When I read it, I went through six volumes in one sitting but of course, like any mangas beyond volume 5 it got repetitive. This was my first real "shoujo/smut" manga so I have fond memories of this series and the anime! I

A typical "normal girl meets celebrity" storyline. I got through two volumes before I started losing interest in the plot. The conflicts just flow from one contrived situation to another. In short: perfect for Shinjo Mayu fans - not for fans of a developed and original plot.

Oh my, what is there to say that hasn't already been said...IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME AND REINS SUPREME OVER ALL ROMANTIC MANGA!!!!!!!!1 *clears throat* I'm really at a loss for words here. Truly.

But seriously, I read this mostly because I wasn't allowed to. My older sister said along time ago that it was to "Graphic" so to speak. So I just thought recently "She'll never know" So I read it and fell in love! Unlike most people I enjoyed Aine's behavior. She was always soo cute, and I loved the way Sakuya acted. And I adored the ending. I cried. Then I wondered why my sister didn't want me reading such a sweet story. The world may never know. I certainly won't.

I recommend this to someone with alot of free time and patients. Every little bit counts!

My god this manga is the worst one i have ever read. the story lines okay but the "girl" and "guy" are so annoying. the only reason i finished it through was cause of the side characters. The story is so repetitive and it starts to read out as a typical shoujo manga. not recomended to people who expect a plot

great storyline, although the author seems to be making it up as she goes along in the later volumes. still a good read though.
