Publisher Comments:

On the way to school one morning, Airi loses her mirror - one that had been passed down to her through generations - and suddenly finds herself in a bizarre situation. Never in her wildest dreams did she expect Aram, a little boy from a magical kingdom, to have emerged from the mirror in the short time it took her to track it down!

Airi is a diligent high school student who is addicted to romance shows and books. All she really wants in life is to marry the perfect guy and have a beautiful house when she grows up. But her life is turned upside down when she loses a mirror passed down through her family. By the time she locates it, a little boy from a magical kingdom has appeared and claims the mirror is a portal between her land and his. Not sure that she believes him, she takes him home and that is when things get weird!

Although low on plot and high on melodrama, this sweet Shōjo manga was fun to read. The art is solid, for the most part, and some of the costumes look awfully tempting. If I thought I could persuade my little brother to cosplay as Aram (the magical kid) I would totally make his little outfit. The character design is well done, making folks who are related look alike, but not so alike that it is hard to tell who they are.

Fans of Shōjo, and particularly of Hino's newer series, Vampire Knight, will want to give this short series a try.
