High school freshman Airi Hoshina has her life goals all planned out – meet a wonderful boy, get married by age 20, and enjoy an ordinary, loving family life. However, Airi’s plan breaks down when she loses an heirloom hand mirror she carries on the way to school. She finds it in the hands of a lordly little boy named Aram, who just used it as a portal from a magical world. Aram has come to Airi’s world in hopes of outrunning trouble at home, but it soon becomes clear that he can no more accomplish that than he can keep Airi from getting mixed up in it.

Thoughts:
I initially sought to read this title as it was by the same mangaka as “Vampire Knight” one of my favourite title – So I thought it was worth a try – But I ended up loving this as a title in its own right not as a title in the shadow of another.

This manga is quite unique storyline wise despite what it seems at first glance – with a prince from mysterious other realm falling in love with a ‘normal’ girl; except the prince changes from being a young child to a teenager from time to time due to a magical curse, oh yeah and her has powers too! It’s quite an enjoyable read and it will be sure to have you laughing in no time and in awe of the beautiful artwork at the same time.
