Secret Of The Princess (2013 – 2015)

Another short (6 chapters) manga by Morinaga Milk.

It can be found here.

It’s a Morinaga Milk review spree! I read two short Morinaga Milk ones, so I thought I might as well do two reviews since both are fairly short.

Secret of the princess is about two girls in an all girls high school. Fujiwara, a cool, volleyball star, and Miu, a shy girl who’s main focus in life is to marry her prince. One day, she witnesses Fujiwara knocking over the Principle’s expensive vase. Fujiwara begs Miu that in exchange for not telling on her, she will do anything Miu asks. Miu has always wanted to date but never had the chance, and asks Fujiwara to simulate being her boyfriend.

The rest of the story goes through their antics of what a boyfriend is, as well as working through their feelings.

For the art, I had no complaints this time. Despite Miu being cute, she thankfully was drawn to not look that young in this. No points deducted here. Both girls are very cute, even fujiwara the “tomboy” is very pretty.

The setting takes place in an all girls school, so no deductions on Yuri here.

As for story, it was definitely a cute story, but there’s just enough conflict and love to make your heart beat faster which I actually adored. Despite it being very short, it was very enjoyable.I do wish it was longer, and for that A POINT DEDUCTION. Also it is short, so ANOTHER POINT DEDUCTION.

Art: 10/10

Yuri: 10/10

Overall: 8/10

Hana and Hina After School (2015 – 2017)

A Japanese manga by the one and only, Morinaga Milk.

Link can be found here for chapters 1-15 here, and the rest of the chapters (that are unfortunately not on dynasty-scans yet) Chapters 15-19 here.

Hina (left) and Hana (right)

The story is about two high school girls. Hana, a small, quiet and cute girl. And Hina, a tall, cool part-time model. They fatefully meet when Hina enters a cute little shop that Hana works out, and then turns out to transfer to Hana’s school. The two girls slowly become friends, and eventually…something more.

The art is fairly nice. It looks the same as Morinaga’s other work. The only thing that bugged me was that Hana looked a bit TOO young that it sometimes took me out of the romance, otherwise the art was pretty solid.

There’s no appearance from any men whatsoever so it deserves full points on the Yuri scale.

It is short, as its only 19 chapters, I fully trust Morinaga Milk when it comes to my Shoujo-ai, I just wish it were longer.

So the style was fairly consistent with being a slow pace in realizing each others love, in addition to it being fairly light. It was an enjoyable read, I would almost put it in the “fluff” section but can’t due to it not quite being that either. I explain more in detail below, but there are spoilers.

So take a read, see if my rating is justified.

Art: 9/10

Yuri: 10/10

Overall: 6/10
