Impression: This is about the bastard son of some multi-millionaire who comes back to the family’s house because his father, the family head, has designated him as the heir to the family’s conglomerate along with most the fortune that comes with it. He has been assigned a seemingly brash, clumsy and awkward maid to be around him but in reality, the maid happens to be a world class assassin hired to be his bodyguard. It starts off interestingly enough with a premise and main characters that showed off quite a bit of potential but as you get through each chapter, the execution and the thought that goes into the scenes seem to dwindle away bit by bit. Sure the ideas are interesting but the way that the author inserts them into the story leaves much to be desired. The style is also obviously Shoujo but the premise is very much Shonen and that gets in the way of the reading experience more often than it could have. I’ve only read the first seven chapters though but I don’t think it’s premature of me to call this a quirky series that suffering from uninspired writing.
