Hadashi de Bara wo Fume

Manga: Ongoing

Brief Summary: A poor orphan girl who lives with her brother and all the little baby orphans he picks up ends up having to "sell" herself to a rich man (to be his "pretend" wife) when her brother disappears and she is at her wits end trying to make get money to feed the brood.

A few people have already commented that this offering from the author of "Tail of the Moon" will be just another shojo and have even offered up their suspected endings to what is now only a 3 volume complete manga. ;p A few people aren't quite enthused with the girl, who has been described as silly, dumb and unrealistic.

What I really like about this is that the girl is drawn so sweet and cute. The guy is not bad too but of course his character sucks (what'd you expect?) right now so hopefully he'll get better and hopefully the girl, who's innocent and a country bumpkim won't get buillied too much. :)

As this is still in its infancy there isn't much to say yet, but so far so good and will keep following it.

My Rating:
Story: B
Art: B
Recommended? The characters are drawn very pretty so the art itself is quite redeeming. It's actually quite a different feel from her previous works.
Similar to: Hanayomesama wa 16sai
