"You're like an angel that someone like me isn't supposed to touch."


A two volume series about a forbidden love between an heiress and her servant. Sayaka finally comes to terms with her feelings for her servant, Narutaki, and learns that sometimes love can't transcend everything.

But she's willing to see what she can do. Independent and brave, our heroine stumbles forward on her bad leg, willing to test social standings.

(Contains some spoilers.)

Even if the ending of this series is unbelievable to some, or inaccurate to the times, or whatever—I don’t care. I still enjoyed it and found it at least somewhat plausible, and even then that’s not the point to me.

Sayaka gets a real suitor for marriage, and even though their first meeting goes terribly, she sparks something in him and he decides to work for real. It’s competition for her chauffeur. Thankfully, this doesn’t go far, though. Sayaka isn’t the type to go

Also known as "The Heiress and the Chauffeur," the second volume of this series dives into a heartbreaking romance that the first volume could barely skim on the surface of. I say heartbreaking because there are so many hard choices that have to be made. You watch both of them fall in love with each other, and go down that path of self-destruction. The male lead's rebellious nature is simultaneously the glue holding their relationship together, as well as the element that threatens to burn it al ...more

Last vol of this series.

I liked that the heroine was a no-nonsense, strong willed person. It was interesting the way that the Class and Rank differences were potrayed in the story, the view of the Taishou Era society and how strongly the main characters felt for each other.

It had some predictable moments and some well-known tropes but, in the end, it was a good and entertaining story.

This ending was great and showed the true struggle of coming from two different worlds.
Cute, better than the first volume, a nice short series.

Today's post is on The Heiress and The Chauffeur volume 2 by Keiko Ishihara. It is the second in a duology. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat. The cover has the two main characters on it looking at the reader. The story is told from third person close of the two main characters moving one to the other as the story goes. The intended reader is someone who likes cute shojo stories, historical romance, and pretty art. There is no foul language, no sexuality, and very mild violence ...more

I don't understand the hate for this series!!!


Yes, it packed full of drama, but this was such a beautiful story and I definitely teared up at the end!

I was worried at the beginning that we would have this weird love triangle and felt HUGEEEE relief that it wasn't! I really enjoyed Sayaka realizing her feelings and working through those feelings (even though I was so afraid they might have a one night stand. Imagine my relief when it DEFINITELY was not that!)

Oh how I loved this manga so much. This is the second and final volume in The Heiress and the Chauffeur duology of manga and I simply loved it. First off the story was so sweet and so cute and I loved how it ended. Not only because it ended great overall but the bonus story added in this manga. The bonus story that takes place many years later and it is fantastic. It adds overall to the story that was being told and wraps it up nicely. While this isn't the most exciting or crazy manga that I've ...more

This short series improved in the second volume. It would've benefited from better pacing but since Ishihara thought it'd be just one-shot or maybe a couple of chapters at first, it's understandable.

Sayaka also was more balanced in this volume: she was determined and listened to her heart but also sometimes cuffed by the society's expectations and unsure what to do. And I also liked Narutaki better when he wasn't just ramming his way ahead but actually thought about the situations a bit more, wh

AHHHHHHH!!!!! (scream of happiness) I can't stop smiling!! The ending with the bonus story was beautiful drawn like seriously I completely recommend this series with the best looking chauffeur in the history of chauffeurs! I love Sayaka and Narutaki's relationship where he takes care of her and she defends and depends on his support. Such a great story. Wish there was more but a perfect ending (the bonus story did it for me) really. ...more

This was a solidly average series.
I liked the artwork and the ending to the story, but it seemed quite rushed in parts and the little review of the characters at the beginning of each chapter was a little annoying.
I probably wouldn't really recommend it, but I wouldn't say not to read it either. I just feel indifferent about it.

Wonderful ending to a lovely story. The art is as great as ever, and the end leaves the reader satisfied. I also found the overall message of this story to be an empowering one. I like reading about strong women, and Sayaka is definitely strong. This was a wonderful story that I really enjoyed reading.

Meh. Some cute parts and GORGEOUS artwork, but the story was just meh. The additional characters seemed fun, but ultimately did nothing for the story. At least I didn't dislike the main characters, the plot was just thin. Not my cup of tea. ...more

Aw well I liked this volume more than the first. Sayaka finally stopped being dense and realized her feelings. I wish we could’ve seen more. I feel like this could’ve been a longer series... maybe show us more of their childhood bonding?
Anyway, this was a nice short read.

review of both volumes 1&2:

used to be a 10/10 (read in 2014)

re-read: 4 stars. some parts were a bit cringe (cheesy) when the guy is being suave.

the middle 4 chapters were dull.

the first 2 and the last 2 chapters were angsty with all the feels~~~
lots of heartache and all that.

still a good read but probably enjoy this more if you're the target audience lol

With this second and final volume in the series, Sayaka and Narutaki's romance reaches its natural conclusion. Of course, there will be the typical competing love interest introduced and usual 'last minute at the airport/harbor' meet up. Ishihara doesn't tread any new ground here and the ending is fairly underwhelming.

Story: Sayaka is introduced to Akihito - an Earl and her potential husband. But she is still grapplin

I don't know but I really do have a thing for forbidden love. Hehe. But how did their bond went from weak to inseparable so fast. They were ready to let go for each other's sake but the moment her father butt in, they went 180. For that, I'm thankful for sayaka' s father to drive them into the corner that they realized they can never let go. Huhu. ...more

This ended up being a short, but very cute series. A suitor intervenes in Sayaka's life. Some slightly unexpected turns occur in this volume. Friendships formed, sacrifices made and family secrets discovered. Quite a packed little volume! Narutaki is such a stand-up guy I couldn't help but like. The class difference and her father's behavior are a bit heartbreaking. ...more

Detailed review to come...

I had to read this the moment it became available for review. I just had to know how it ended.
Cute, fairly predictable short series. Nothing crazy or ground-breaking, but fun and sweet.
