 Kenn's Comment:
= =" Sorry. I know that summary isn't very good, but I can't think of one myself, and there are really none out there that are that much different from that one.

Anywho, different sites seem to list this as different things; MangaUpdates, which I trust more, lists it as Shounen, while MangaFox lists it as Shoujo. I can see where people are thinking that this is shoujo are coming from, though I kinda doubt that it is. It's running in Comic Blade. All the series running in it are either seinen, or shounen. Nevertheless, it's a great series. Like her previous works, Aqua and Aria, it's a nice series that you can just kick back to and relax while reading. No testosterone pumped muscle freaks, no annoying main characters with homosexual urges towards his main rival, no fight scenes lasting 40 volumes, no- you get the point.

If you haven't by now, I suggest that you take a look at Amano's more famous works, Aqua and Aria (in that order). She has a few other works, though I don't think too many people know of them...
