Format: Paperback
I have mixed feelings for Sakura Hime Kaden. I absolutely ADORED Full Moon o Sagashite and it remains my favourite manga ever. Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne is another favourite of mine. Those two series helped me to grow as a person when I was a teenager. The Gentlemen's Alliance Cross was okay. I enjoyed it quite a bit, more than I thought I would based off the first two volumes, although not like Full Moon and KKJ.

I didn't love Sakura Hime Kaden. I only liked it. Just. I found absolutely none of the characters, aside from Rurijo, to be original or memorable. I felt like I had seen this story many times before. Princess Kaguya? Reincarnation? Ninjas? I've seen it all at least a dozen times. Sakura was a very likeable girl but she is the type of character you see very frequently in anime and manga. Aoba was incredibly boring. I felt like they had no real chemistry and frankly, I hated the guy. None of the characters except for Rurijo will stick in my head (although I did have a weak spot for Kohaku and Mai Mai's story was heart-breaking.)

This was, overall, a good ending to the series. As a die hard Arina fan, I bought the whole series. Had it been any other mangaka, I wouldn't have done so.

Format: Paperback
Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura is the latest series by famed Arina Tanemura. Serialized in Ribon magazine, this series is set in ancient Japan but with a few supernatural twists.

Before we get into this, I'm going to get this out of the way. Arina Tanemura has been my favorite for the past nine years with no competition, so there'll probably be some personal bias within the review.

Sakura Hime has proven to be a strong new shojo series after one volume. The art is nothing short of gorgeous, the characters are loveable, the story is interesting and takes the 'magical girl' genre into a unique direction.

At the outset, Sakura is a spoiled princess who is betrothed to a prince. As she had never met the prince, she was of course reluctant to leave her home. Things take a turn however when she looks into the full moon for comfort only to have a huge demon attack her!

Arina Tanemura is known for her gorgeous and wildly detailed art, and this series is no exception. Each panel was filled with such love and care that despite being excited to see how the story unfolds, you'll likely read this at a slow pace just to admire the art. The monologues are lyrical as they usually are in her previous works.

The characters are loveable; the spoiled reluctant princess, the at-times sleazy prince, Kohaku the ninja, and the list goes on. Already there's a large cast of characters, but they're introduced at a good pace so as not to feel overwhelmed.

On a technical aspect, this series is released by Viz. The size and paper quality is the same as the rest of their wide library. Honorifics are dropped, and sound effects are translated into English. Some people will see this as a negative, but I see it as a huge plus.

Some people will see this as a negative, but I see it as a huge plus. The reading is much smoother and flows far more naturally. The sound effects are so seamlessly translated, it's hard to believe they weren't in English to begin with. There are no blatantly erased lines. Even with the Japanese volume side by side comparison -- as I own both -- I can tell you it's completely flawless. For those of you are turned off by "Americanized" dialogue, you'll find this is not the case here.

Scores
Artwork 10/10
Characters 8/10
Story 9/10

Final score for Sakura Hime volume 1: 9/10 (this series is 4.5 stars out of 5, but because I can't do a half, I scored it with a 5)

All in all Sakura Hime is a strong new series by Arina Tanemura. For fans of Arina Tanemura, pick this up. For people who want a fresh shojo series with beautiful art, great characters, and doesn't take place in highschool, pick this up.

HASH(0xa0a3a120) out of 5 stars It all takes time. Oct. 7 2011
By Tiffany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I been a fan in all of Arina's story's and i have to say that it might not be as great as full moon or Gentlemen's alliance cross but it is worth something to read. I love the artwork, the characters who are set in like another world like Inuyasha where the main character as to become the next secessor to slay the demonand devoted her life to human kind for they want to kill her for she might brestay them.

As usual Arina's always has loveable characters and artwork that i will always admired. I have to say that it might not be what you want this story to be at first but later it get better.

HASH(0xa0a3a558) out of 5 stars Surprises Aug. 19 2011
By Christine Markle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Right from volume one this story surprised me with unexpected twists. I was hooked from the start by that and the art work. And i get a good laugh from time to time. Sakura is determined, caring and fun loving, and even at the tender age of 14 has a complicated love life. It is fun seeing a story written in our world yet a part of history it feels like another world.
It looks like Arina Tanemura has written another story as fun and engaging as "Gentleman's Alliance Cross."

I would recommend "Sakura Hime" to anyone who enjoys manga and to those who are reading manga for the first time.

[Taken from my blog.]

I haven't really been a huge follower of this book, and I'm not sure why. It just hasn't grabbed my attention, or kept my attention, as well as I would like it to. I read it, and I'm starting to remember what happens in each volume better, but I don't think about it much after I finish it. It doesn't seem to be leaving much of a standing impression, I guess.
The first chapter of this volume continues showing Asagiri and Ukyo's story, which I actually enjoyed quite a bit. I found that I liked them, and that their relationship is right up there with Hayate and Kohaku's relationship, which is still my favorite. My liking of them definitely made what happened between them even worse, and I was really not happy about it. This carries into the next chapter, where Aoba and Sakura have been reunited and they are all running away, trying to get out but end up being caught by Enju (Sakura's somewhat-evil brother).
Within these chapters, there are some moments that I will not explain in depth, but that make me dislike Enju even more. He's just... I don't like what he's doing to Sakura. There's a point where she can choose to turn her back on him, and while she should openly fight with him, I understand why she doesn't. Even though he's not the same person she knew, he is still her brother, and that's hard to turn away from.
There's some fighting between everyone, and Sakura ends up in this mirror world, where people that are killed by her sword go or something. While there, she finds out that Enju has been working to get the pieces of Princess Kaguya back together, which is kind of a bad idea. Mostly she's upset because she thinks Kaguya will be replacing her, but otherwise I'm not sure what to think of it. I didn't think Kaguya was a bad person (is she, and I just haven't been paying attention?), but I'm curious as to what she is like, especially because this doesn't sound like it could be good in any way. And we got to see her, kind of, and that was definitely creepy. Maybe it's just that the whole, bringing people back from the dead is a bad thing? `cause I know it is.
Then Fujimurasaki (the emperor or whatever) shows up and they all run away as the `bad guys' hide out is set on fire. The volume ends with Sakura promising to defeat Enju, which is good, but makes me wonder what is going to happen next, since apparently it's moving into a new story arc.
After that, there are some comic strips showing the other team (the `bad guys' or whatever), in which they are goofing around and doing human things, while not being very human. It was entertaining, but a little weird to see all of them acting comically, when I have only seen them serious and fighting thus far.
Again, this doesn't seem to be giving me much of a longing impression, but I do mostly enjoy the books when I get them. I'm not even thinking about stopping the series or anything (I have read all of Tanemura's previous published books, and don't intend to stop with this one; besides, I am enjoying it), but I hope that it starts getting better, and I begin enjoying it even more and feeling more strongly about it.
