The cute girl’s love story we have all been waiting for has finally been released and, of course, I took this opportunity to review this adorable work of art. For starters, the yuri element of this manga does not blossom just yet as the first volume of Failed Princesses focuses more on introducing the characters and their situations I respect the author for taking things slow. Don’t get me wrong though, there’s still a lot of blushy-blushy moments between our two characters!
So we got our popular model-like main character, Fujishiro Nanaki and then we got our other main character, Kurokawa Kanade who is a shy girl that doesn’t want to stand out in the crowd. Two polar opposites that just happened to become close after one fateful incident. As expected of a popular girl, Fujishiro had a boyfriend... that was cheating on her for months! Kurokawa witnessed this messy breakup while hiding in a locker and afterward, she offered to stay with Fujishiro and help cheer her up. Fujishiro, who has never had a real friend and always had to keep up a fake persona finally opened up and the two became close friends.
My one con about this manga is towards the end both of them get a complete makeover. I honestly preferred their original character designs and I even thought at first that the 2nd volume cover art of Failed Princesses were two entirely new characters (Yep, they changed that much). Aside from that one minor thing, I really enjoyed reading this manga and I loved how the two characters valued friendship as a high and precious thing. I won’t spoil more than that so definitely give Failed Princesses a shot if you want a warm and wholesome read!
Fujishiro Nanaki is super cute, super popular, and super annoyed with anyone as plain as her classmate Kurokawa Kanade. When Nanaki finds out her boyfriend’s cheating on her, however, her life makes a complete 180—as does her relationship with Kanade.Add to CartLearn More
