I love gender benders and this one is a great one. Al is forced to dress as Alexia who is a princess and be her body double but the plot takes it in a wonderful direction with debates about if he wants to be Al or Alexia but why can't he be some combination?
Sure there are cliches but the only real problem I see is the speed at which chapters are released. If I could find it physically I'd no doubt get it and binge the whole series.

I do agree the story has an actual plot, but it's rather cliche and predictable
If you don't prefer a story with all boys/men and the only worthy girl got axed so soon, yhen you shouldn't try this one

I like it a lot at the moment and everything is fresh in the genre. But, is this supposed to be Yaoi?...? Cuz... I'm seeing all the signs....... (if it is, I'm sorry to the Yaoi fangirls but I would quit.)

Just started reading this manga and I can already say that I'm pretty pleased with it. The art is amazing and so is the plot (when **** died that was pretty unexpected; lol, sorry I'm not putting their real name...) and as of right now I am just getting to the time-skip that appears and I'm already getting confused.
Alexia and Albert are (supposedly) twins, and Alexia clearly stated that she was turning 12 soon, meaning that she is only 11 years old, also meaning that Albert is 11 (that is, if they are twins, but I'm pretty sure they are) and then there is a TWO YEAR, hence the TWO, time skip yet Albert looks older than a (now) 14 year old! And don't even get me started with Theo! He's supposed to be 16, but he looks 20 something...But I can't complain, cos' Theo is pretty HOT

Anyways, onto my actual review, which will contain spoilers so yeah:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Basically the story starts off with 11 year old Albert and 13/14 year old Theo wanting to go off in the town to see the Queen's birthday festival. In their kingdom, there is a crude hierarchy where males are treated like the scum of the country while women are bestowed as the recipients of social power and wealth. No matter where you came from or who you were raised by, as long as you are a male a female of great social power has the right to take and claim you as their slave and/or servant. But don't worry, this isn't one of those dumb stories where the girl takes the guy as a servant and they slowly fall in love. As Al and Theo are wandering through the streets, wondering why the Queen's festival hasn't begun, Theo's hat flies with the wind and as he runs to catch it a woman of high power comes and attacks to the boys along with her servants and try to sell them to the markets. Luckily (or maybe not) Guy comes in the lick of time and buys them from the stubborn woman for 1 Million. At first Theo and Al are greatful, but then they're knocked out and when they come to both of them are completely naked and being washed brutally (Al is, not Theo), with a mop, by an all-male-hating Guy. Soon, Al and Theo find out that Al has been brought to the Queen's Castle where they meet Princess Alexia; the young heir to the throne who just so happens to look identical to Al. Even more to their surprise, Alexia says that Al is to take her place as the heir to the throne for the time being as she goes out of town to meet with her "beloved". Many things ensue and one after another, things gets feisty to the point where Theo is wounded by a sword and ends up in a somewhat crucial position. Begging for Theo's life, Al agrees to do what Alexia asks just so long as Theo is sent home and taken care of. His wish is granted and with that the three of their stories begin. Theo wanders off to god-knows-where and claims that he will become the King of Thieves and isn't heard or seen from again until the time-skip at the very end of chapter 7 where he is now 16/17 years old (I suppose) and is ready to take Al back from the position he was forced into. I don't want to go into specific details about how it happened, seeing how this is already pretty long, but Alexia ends up dying after someone shoots her out of spite/jealousy. Al quickly reigns in and claims that Alexia was just a double and that he's the real heir and then the time skip begins immediately afterwords to show us how Al is putting up with his position. Now, that's all I'm saying as that's all I've read.

I know this was long, but I hope you guys will also enjoy this story. I have to say, it's very interesting. But I'm kind of wondering about the genre of this manga? I'm only at the end of Ch.7 , and it already seems like this is gonna be some sort of Yaoi manga what with there being no more females left and Theo returning to "claim" Al...IDK, it seems VERY Yaoi to me xD.

This is a promising read. The characters are well drawn and interesting, albeit a bit cliche. Art style in general is pretty. Story is really good so far and I'm looking forward to what happens next. The scanlators doing this said they will only release the next chapters once volume 2 comes out in its entirety.

I am writing this comment after finishing it all. I can still feel the goosebumps sent. Nothing's really coming out of my brain right now, but AWESOME, MAGNIFICENT EXCELLENT! With the short span of entertainment, it left a surprising impact. Serious impact made by reading something rare. with the sudden twist, my heart is beating very hard. I am excited to read what's next. this is totally a ten out of ten! The art is very eye catching, the plot is exciting and the characters are very interesting. A must read!

Although this manga is just starting out, I have to say it really is quite interesting. The previous reviewer mentioned that it had surprising depth in so little chapters and I agree. The story has a little cliches, yet this manga keeps turning out to be different than what I thought it would be.The illustrations would make you think the manga would be quite cutesy, but turns out not to be. Also

with Alexia and Albert being revealed as long lost twins of the royal family, I expected the plot to sort of revolve around that-- except that Alexia would be killed off right after. And then immediately after that, a 2-year time skip where little Theo returns?
I like it so far, but I'll have to wait and see.

I agree with what the previous reviewer said. I was expecting a much more cutesy, fan-service-laden cross-dressing series, but this manga so far has shown surprising depth for its currently few chapters. It's always interesting reading about female-dominated societies, and this one definitely surprised me with its striking realism. Women aren't just ruling over men and living in perfect luxury - even the princess's only worth as a human being is determined by her ability to bear a healthy daughter to rule after her. This is certainly an interesting angle to consider in this type of story. I look forward to seeing how it will all unfold! Also, I wonder if it's just me, but this manga is reminding me more and more of mothy's Story of Evil.

With the reveal that Albert and Alexia might possibly be long-lost twins separated at birth and the fact that Albert is working as Alexia's servant, I thought instantly of Daughter/Servant of Evil. It doesn't help that Alexia has a horse she really likes! xD

Since there are so few chapters, I'll hold off rating for now, but this definitely seems like a series to keep an eye on! wink

Looks like this is a manga thats just settling into the story after 6 chapters, and one I very much like so far. For a historical shoujo, the plot is more focused on political intrigue and mystery rather than romance which is a refreshing change. What makes it more interesting is that the world in which the main character - Albert - lives is a female dominated society, where it is males who are considered the commodities, and the reason why Albert is forced into the role as a 'replacement' princess. He is an interesting character, while seeming to be resistant to his role in taking over as the 'princess', starts to become interested in the history and workings of the kingdom. The connection between him and the real princess is a bit obvious, but it'll be interesting to see what happens when what happens when he finds out.

For a historical shoujo, I'd definately recommend it if you liked something like Saver or Operation Liberate Men (As in, little or no romance, but more political intrigue and mystery).
