It made me notice that I always chronic manga batch. This is true. Just because often a volume to another, the merits and defects are the same and I do not particularly want to spend my time repeating the same things. Much to copy and paste and add two to three things to customize.
So here is like that ^ ^
Let this manga.
After Mei's Butler, I was curious to discover new manga. Amazon advised me this one, so I purchased the first two volumes. And I'm sorry. Yes, I regret not taking more volumes!!
Ok, this is not necessarily THE manga century or the most original.
In some ways, it also points out a lot Mei's Butler.
The story is that of Ryo, a young girl who is now an orphan who was raised by his grandfather, noble on the decline, which sends in a private academy (It does remind you of anything? .... )
There, two classes. L, with all the girls from good families, and B, "Butler" or butler.
While exploring her new school, Ryo falls on Hakuo. a future butlers.
They will become friends simply because Ryo Hakuo treated as a fellow friend, rather than as a prince he is and that everyone "worships"
What will distinguish this story from that Mei is there, the butler is a Prince, and here, no student has a dedicated butler, unless one considers a butler girls worthy enough to be served by it. In this case, they spend an oath.
There is less servile this aspect that shocked me a little in Mei, where each girl to her butler obeyed blindly and did everything to make her happy, but the lady in question is under no obligation to her.
I was also surprised.
Here is a real contract between the mistress and the butler. Future mistress to prove it deserves a butler, it is the best, and in return only that it will devote himself to his well-being
(Sorry for the pavement, right, but it is a sacred difference for me!)
In the first volume, Ryo then befriends Hakuo, it explains decided to be part of the class B despite his princely rank because he wants to prove he is worth something on its own merits, and not by title (which is very commendable!)
Ryo, she does not quite understand all the fuss classes. She does not understand that there is an unwritten rule that separates L of B.
And above all, very Hakuo class above it. That earned him some enemies.
One of them will throw him a challenge: find a dedicated butler or to kneel in front of the one who insulted his parents.
There, you will say, it gets sewn with white thread: it will ask Hakuo and as is his friend, he will accept!
WELL NO!! Ha ha ha! You have done well to have there, huh?
Instead, and this is what makes the charm and attachment of this heroine. She refuses to ask a favor to her friend, she does not want him to feel obligated. So, she does not even speak to him and does everything for another student in the class B wants it. But it is a failure.
The day of the end of the challenge, as she kneels in front of his rival, Hakuo who has learned his problem with his friends (and bodyguards) will be sworn in and appointed his butler.
In short, he plays the knight on a beautiful white horse who comes to save the damsel in distress, and I, with my little heart shopgirl, well, it speaks to me, it affects me, it takes me.
And most importantly, far from being servile with Ryo, he did not hesitate to rush, while discovering that can make a pure and sincere like the girl feels for her friendship, which the courtiers nice change hypocrites.
The second volume shows Ryo trying to integrate into the school with its own resources and the evolution of the relationship Ryo-Hakuo.
It is here, despite many similarities with Mei's Butler, a radically different frame, and very interesting.
The drawings are beautiful, as often in the manga. But more than the story, it's the characters that make this series interesting and has really at a level that makes it addictive.
Marked personalities, without desire for change, as Mei. Ryo does not seek to change its character and behavior to please his peers or Hakuo.
Hakuo really a princely behavior, a little haughty, yet it shows a real desire to be accepted for what it really is and not for his title, which made me forgive him all his rudeness to Ryo
In short, you'll understand, I loved the first two volumes, and I can not wait to discover more!
