I want to say a final word about this great historical shoujo.
Please, please, everyone. Don’t be fooled with its low rating (especially on mangaupdates). You should follow the story till the very end. This is in another caliber, the exact opposite of Akatsuki no Yona which is telling the same tale about political intrigue.

I highly recommend if you want to see – not cliché, a series with good premise. But I won’t recommend if you aren’t ready to follow how extreme the development in this manga has. Yes, watch my words.

I love Hakusei. He did a great role as a good friend I’ve ever seen in history of manga. Bluntly speaking, I also find it problematic when he tried to rape Hime-sama. Yeah, what the hell, rape your master? But, you will love him when you see how mature he becomes in later chapters.

This is not for a faint-hearted reader. You must enjoy every moments in this manga because they are so precious. Not to mention how beautiful the art is. It’s bitter, I cried so hard at the end. THAT is : An unexpected ending, you will hate it. But, it was great, you know, spot on. Izumi-sensei knows how to play her cards very well.

Don’t judge one sided based on several volumes only. The conflict rises along the way, in every place, which is affect their psychology completely.
Hint : A heavy ride.
Also, I got trauma to read another heart-wrecking shoujo. I’m fed up, really.

Rating : around 8 to 9/10

Wait so this is an award-winning manga apparently. I'm pretty sad it isn't getting traction through scanlations :((
