1924, Sauvile


Kujo Kazuya came to Marguriete Academy as foreign student. It’s a preatigious school where aristocrat decendats gathered from all over Europe. But, Kujo is only the 3rd son of imperial soldier in Japan, he hardly find a companion *Now, you talk about differencess*

Lonely but strong willed, Kujo decides to be independent. But, having no friend is a misery. Take today as example. Kujo was just going out for shopping when he encounter a dead body with its head cut.

Ok, he faints.

What else can you expect? Seeing a dead body is shocking enough, but he also sees the head separated from the body.

Kujo wakes up because of the noise his teacher made. Cecile sensei is the yankumi-kind of teacher. She’s quite histerical and it turns worse as Inspector Grevil de Blois shows in front of the infirmary door.

And you’d think he’s super confident, ha? With the hair like a drill, Grevil accuses Kujo as the murderer. Yup, we can assume that this police man is quite an idiot. He event has no warrant to catch Kujo. But, Grevil promised to stop by the next day.

Now, Kujo must proof his innocence. It may just a quick incindent when Ms. Cecile asks him to deliver worksheets from morning classes to a poor student who was absent. It’s said that she spends her day in the library.

Rumors have said many ugly things, but the creature Kujo faces is a beautiful girl who looks like a doll. Her name is Victorica.

Though she speaks in arrogancy, she’s well informed and have brilliant logics.

Can she helps Kujo clearing his name?

The manga seems so fast, compared with the anime. Yup, I finished watching the anime a while ago and I love it.

Friendship happens not only because you have something in common, but also when you have different qualities. 

Both Kujo and Victorica are lonely, yet they’re different in mental. Kujo is the kind who wants to proof himself but he’s just not that smart. Victorica, on the other hand, gave many things because she’s afraid of her own future’s prediction. Kujo walks with heart, while Victorica depends on her logic. They match each other.

C-Blossom ~Case 729~

Kana never imagine to be running beneath bullets, but Kou is always there to cover her. And at the very ending, she needs to take decision. Will she  fight for her family life?

I’m not sure that Shimotsuki Kayoko sensei has talent in thriller story. I read her manga before, “Ariadne at Night”. The idea is OK, but the way she flows the story is less intriguing. Too bad, I like her drawing style. 

This one, too, even that she had joint forces with Fukui Harutoshi sensei, I feel that the story is too simple and too easy to revealed. They need to put more mystery in it.
