– I got the description off of MyAnimeList. Sorry I didn’t write it myself, but I dropped this manga 2 years ago, so I mainly remember the manga for all of its bad parts and where I exactly dropped off.
– This manga is NOT FOR CHILDREN. From what I remember the manga mention things like concubines, and it has some sexual content.
– After this manga, I have completely stopped reading any historical manga. I had issues with not knowing which Japanese era they were talking about (and not being informed of that era). Also I got super irritated by the characters. On top of that, the manga didn’t interest me because it took to long to get anywhere/to the point. It is in a way “unique,” but I can’t help but feel that its cliché. It isn’t a shoujo manga that I would remember as ‘refreshing,’  but it’s a manga I would remember for all the terrible things that happened. Even though I like drama and tragedy, I feel like the combination of shoujo/romance with drama/tragedy is annoying and even overdone.
– TBH it is probably better if you see another person’s review for this manga because I dropped this manga about two years ago. I’d recommend reading some of the reviews of this manga on MyAnimeList. Sometimes they can be really helpful. Specifically, I’d recommend reading Sailor-Mitsuki’s review. She praises the manga. That way you’d see the bad points and good points.
– The only part I would say I liked,… was the part when the manga told the fairy girl’s (sorry I don’t remember her name) story and past. Only part I ever liked.
– It seems like the manga also doesn’t update that often. :/ Somehow not surprising…
