Devil and Her Love Song/Akuma to Love Song Volume 1

A student from one of the top prestigious school transfers into the ordinary Touzuka Public High School after being expelled, and stirs up school life from within. On her first day, she makes a bad impression and gets on the bad side of the females(who are very much like pack hounds, mind you). Trying to be friendly but failing miserably, coming off as arrogant and cold hearted, the socially inept – but uncannily perceptive of the human nature – Kawai Maria becomes the prime target for bullying and rumours.

Ludwig Kakumei

Volume 2 Chapter 5 - Rapunzel. (Scan courtesy of Aerandria)

Ludwig Kakumei follows the journey of a vain, pretty/handsome looking prince who was given an ultimatum by his father the King to find a bride or never return to the castle.  Accompanied by his much abused loyal servant Willhem, the eccentric prince meets an assortment of equally as eccentric women, including a S&M fetish witch, crafty princesses, cursed individuals, and ghosts. The manga gives a twist on fairy tales, and paints a “darker side” of the timeless tales, among them Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Bluebeard. This is a shoujo without typical shoujo drama tail chasing!

This is…! It cannot be..!!” before being blown to bits?
