Manga Review: Kiss of the Rose Princess, Volume 7, by Aya Shouoto

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: November 2015
Volumes: 9.
Spoilers?: Some.
Volume: 1. 6. 8.

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?!


Things are starting to heat up in this series.
Mutsuki is tempted by his brother, because of his feelings for Anise. This leads to a surprising betrayal, and a messy one. And I will say I’m not a huge fan of Mutsuki’s actions toward Anise here, he's more forceful than I would like. Although it does push Anise and Kaede to consider their feelings for each other more seriously, but that part is just starting to develop.
The fake princess is terrible, as are most of her knights. Unlike Lime and Orange, who are super sweet together in their brother-like relationship, and their friendship with Anise. I like the insight we get into Orange and Lime, an idea of who they are and where they come from.
Then there’s the cliffhanger, which makes me excited for the next one. I can’t wait to read it.
