Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: March 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:

Anise Yamamoto has been told that if she ever removes the rose choker given to her by her father, a terrible punishment will befall her. Unfortunately she loses that choker when a bat-like being falls from the sky and hits her. Anise is granted four cards representing four knights whom she can summon with a kiss. But now that she has these gorgeous men at her beck and call, what exactly is her quest?!


I think I’m running out of things to say about this series.
I really like it, don’t get me wrong. But a lot of it is the same, or at least feels the same. The plot is definitely moving forward, and something new happens every time.
Also, I know there’s some iffy feelings about this series. But I enjoy it for what it is, what I know it is and expect it to be. It’s a high school shojo reverse harem, with a bit of magical girl, and an Enemy. It’s fun, the humor works, I really like the group of characters, and the plot is moving forward. The artwork is gorgeous, and fits with the type of manga/shojo it is.
I don’t really want to delve into the plot. There are things I like and things I don’t about it—I like the twists and the suspense even, though some of the non-violent non-endings could have been better. Mostly I’m paying attention to the characters, and I think they’re all great.
I’m looking forward to picking up the next volume.
