As she passes through a forest, she meets Zen and his aides, Kiki and Mitsuhide. The story is about how Zen who happens to be the 2nd prince of Clarines and Shirayukhi fall in love with each other and how they forge their paths in life.
The story is an optimistic one. The love between Zen and Shirayukhi is wonderful. They have a mature and a logical way of looking at their lives and at their own selves. Both of them don’t demand anything from each other and this exists as strength to their relationship. Obi (Zen’s self-proclaimed aide) is cute and funny.
The story flows in a very natural and casual manner. The dialogues are less, so it is not tiring to read the manga. The art is beautiful and suits the story genre. Each character in the story is unique. This story is not a fantasy where the hero saves the heroine, rather, it is one where the protagonists’ can handle their lives themselves and have chosen to share their lives and love with each other while cherishing their individualities.
This manga is a must-read for people who love unique characters and light-hearted stories.
