From Aerandria Scans:

"There once was a girl with a splendid flower blooming upon her chest."

When Lys was born, her heart did not beat at all. To save her, her mother made a contract with a devil: Lys can borrow his heart until the day she turns sixteen, but after that, he will eat her body. Together with her companion, Siva, someone whom she met by chance in the desert at night, she travels around as a dancer girl to find the devil who sealed her fate. One day, while they were traveling, they suddenly meet an egoistic prince and a ring spirit...

By chapter four, this manga has made me cry! Jeez! Maybe i'm just a sucker for these type sof stories ^^", but anyways. I think this story has such great potential, and i can already see what the climax may be..we just gotta wait till it gets there! But I'll gladly wait cuase this manga is just a delight to read~! And i do think that this is a story with sweet and pure characters that you just wanna cuddle up to! It's not at all cheesy or stupid in my opinion..

So far this manga has got it all: Action,comedy,a hint of romance, and tradgedy. It's a pretty good start for a manga! I can't wait to read more of it.

This is a pretty good manga so far and it's nothing like love monster.
[Seriously every time I see a manga with a demon or w/e, why do people keep comparing it with love monster..? If your like that then you need to read some more manga...]I can't wait to know what happen next. >_<

Wow, the art is incredible! This mangaka has some serious talent. The story is nice too. It gives off a "gentle and sweet" aura. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I am bit annoyed with this manga since a good looking bishounen appear almost in ever chapter and have interest in the main heroine. I know this is shoujo and all that, but it is ridiculous. Plot is nothing special either, character are pretty shallow despite trying to make it a serious drama they fail into cliche very easily. The only thing that is really good is the artwork. This one cannot deny, but everything else - mediocre.

Since this is shoujo mixed with fantasy (a rare combination btw, since you only see these ones on mahou shoujo types), I immediately picked this one up and I'm not disappointed.
The artwork is gorgeous and beautiful, and the plot is interesting, even if it's only chapter one released so far.
And seriously, to Chlorophyll:
What is the basis of your statement that this manga is just a copycat of Love Monster? Aside from the devil deal, of course. If that's the only proof you have and by giving rather heavy-handed judgement on this title just by chapter one, shows how much an immature fan you are.

Although only the first chapter (that's been scanlated) came out, I thought it was an absolutely beautiful story (to Chlorophyll: I do not find much similarity between this and Love Monster other than the whole devil deal). The plot's creative, although the characters may be a bit cliche, but then what story has a completely unique set of characters?. The art is extremely detailed and beautiful. I love Lys' outfit, Siva is such an eye-candy, and Thor is just complete cutiepie-ness.

Just another poorly done shoujo in disguise.

I thought the summary was good, but just by reading one chapter do I know that this is just another shoujo like Love Monster or maybe even worst, since Love Monster was at least a bit entertaining. It's just fan-service with no substance. The main character is stupid and there are lots of guys that are thrown in there just for the sake of having a bunch of guys being all over the main character and for absolutely no reason. The characterization isn't even good the story-telling definitely isn't going to be good either. This manga just seems tasteless to me.
