Shurei Hong is one of my favorite female protagonists, if not THE favorite. She is a strong young woman who knows what she wants and takes much abuse in order to succeed. I love this series. I'm not sure if I like the emperor or Seiran more though.

Yay Kocho! \o/ I love this woman, she will end you if you challenge her. What an excellent mom to Shurei. This manga is chock full of amazing parental figures, it's no wonder the main cast are all so excellent. 4 stars
