Stepping on Roses by Rinko Ueda
Review: If you loved Tail of the Moon, you will definitely love this story too! The artwork and characters are similar to that of Tail of the moon also. The plot is also fun and fast paced and just enough drama to keep you on your toes! The entire time I was reading this I had to hold my breath in waiting to see what would happen next. The only disappointment is the short ending, only nine volumes when it feels like it could go on for much longer. But all in all great story with beautiful artwork!
3 out of 5 stars.
Young adult. Romance. Manga. Shojo.
