I quite enjoyed this volume. I think alot of people would get turned off from this series because of all the constant talk about Hayate and what happened 16 years ago. But, that needed to be there, so that the truth could be told.
But, I did not care for how Himeno's stepmother allowed herself to be controlled by the Princess of Disaster. I also did not like how she turned Himeno's maid and "evil" stepsister against her. It was expected, since I had watched the anime years ago, but I still did

this developed so much nicer than in the anime. the relationships and manipulation of the people around himeno are so much more believable in this go around (from my understanding the anime was done first). the misunderstandings and impressions of each other come together well in this volume.
This volume of the Prétear series was great with lots of surprises and great scenes that keep the reader interested and wanting more.

Himeno is the Pretear, the protector of Leafe, or rather, life. She fights with the power of the seven Leafe Knights against the Princess of Disaster who wishes to destroy all Leafe on Earth. But Himeno is still just your ordinary, but out of place, sixteen year old girl, so how long can she take on all of these responsibilities that most of her fellows humans will never ever have to experience?

It seems to me that this volume mainly focused on the psyche of Himeno and where she stands in her cur

So the copy I read had many pages ripped out but from what I could gather it seemed almost totally fluffy! Not what I was expecting and rather disappointing.

There is a little movement with the princess of disaster moving on Himeno's stepmom to do the deed. Not much happened.

BOTTOM LINE: Got shallow fast. :(

Series Review: Pretear is a short but enjoyable manga that puts a unique twist on a old tale. The characters are enjoyable and the plot is interesting. Things happen very fast with twists well executed. This manga is a great option for a quick read.

I love reverse harem type of manga storyline and coupled with the magical girl aspect I thought this series was pretty entertaining. Even though the heroine was whiny (no surprise there) there was still a good overall story.

“Yeah, you're right. It's lonely being by yourself. But, unless you do something about the situation... things will never change. If you want to get closer to someone, you have to show him who you really are. Your loneliness, your doubts... It takes courage to show your weakness. And you'll probably get hurt, but... Your true feelings can heal you.
You have to believe, "you might not care about me as much as I care about you, but... I want to get closer... I want to touch your heart, I want to hold you... So I will open up my heart to you.”
