Overview

QUEEN OF HEARTS

Little witch-girls Chocolat and Vanilla are best friends, but only one of them can be Queen of the Magic World. To determine who deserves the title, they must go to the Human World and enter a strange competition. Whoever attracts the most human boys . . . wins!

Here’s how it works: When a boy falls for a witch-girl, she utters a few mystic words and the boy’s heart will be hers in jewel-like form. It may sound simple, but winning hearts is tricky business. While Chocolat had no problem enticing witch-boys with her forthright personality, human boys seem to be drawn to shy and modest girls like Vanilla. And to make matters worse, Chocolat is finding herself increasingly drawn to the cool and mysterious Pierre–who feels nothing for her! The girls had planned to be best friends forever, but both of them want to be Queen. Will their rivalry ruin their friendship?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mai Taniyama is our guide through this gently creepy series about her boss, a ghost hunter named Kazuya Shibuya, who's in the business of liberating innocent citizens from supernatural infestations. Kazuya investigates psychic phenomena with his team of consultant monks and exorcists and, as this is a manga comic adhering to the usual teenage conventions, this expert exorcist is just 16 years old. The first case involves a haunted house and an evil doll that is a vessel for children who have died there in the past. Before their spirits are laid to rest, they wreak some serious havoc-furniture turned upside down, spontaneous fires, a pit in the middle of the living room-but eventually, all is put right, the spirits are soothed, and the family is safe. The second episode is more light-hearted, although it, too, involved a dead young girl. Spurned by her boyfriend when she was alive, the girl killed herself and vowed to make mischief among happy couples. This spirit is eventually soothed and laid to rest by the champion ghost hunters. With sprightly narrator Mai and an inventive series of ghostly villains, Ghost Hunt should entertain. (Jan.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Absolutely Readable. UBER CUTE !!!

    I am a 25 year old soccer mom, with a graduate level reading comprehension. But I have to admit I am in love with this series. I love the French terms. I love the extras dictionary at the end of the book. I love the history of the characters, and the secrets of the familiars. I love the fantastic history of the witch world as it unfolds. I love the art and the uber girly magic the 2 main players use throughout the book. Very cute, very fun, very addictive. Hands down my favorite series of manga. I hope it never ends. And I own ALOT.

    What happened Here?

    Like the person below, this series has gone WAY downhill. It started out with a good plot: Two young witches competing to be the next queen of the Magical World, involving romance. But it's taken so many twists and turns that the original plot has been lost! And, come on! TEN YEAR OLDS IN LOVE WITH FOURTEEN YEAR OLDS!! It just doesn't work. Sorry Anno-San, but you dragged this story for too long.

    The Truth About Manga and Melodrama

    Okay. I started out as a fan of this series, and have bought these books because I thought the excellent plot deserved a few chances. I currently own volumes one through five, and I must say that the series is quickly sliding downhill. Volumes one and two were great, but the art was average and the side views were terrible. What was good about the beginning of this series was that it realistically portrayed a young girl's feelings about love, popularity and friendship. The main character, Chocolat Kato, is an endearing, lovable character, as is her friend Vanilla Ice. Yes, Vanilla Ice like the rapper. They make boys fall in love with them and use witch powers to take their valuable hearts, and they each want to collect more to become Queen of the Magical World. Anyway, as the witch drama, horrid clothes, and a ridiculous amount of French wears on, the series becomes less cute and more of a really bad fantasy melodrama. Vanilla becomes involved with Pierre, who is something called an 'Ogre', and he puts a black heart in her chest. She becomes evil but seems to still like Chocolat. The plot goes on, involving 'Lip Balm For Cute Conversations', forest fairies, and Pierre dressing as a woman. It gets worse, believe me. The two girls' sensei, Rockin' Robin, is so feminine he could be homosexual, and yet he seems always to be with beautiful women. At one point, he comments on another (MALE) wizard's 'cute lips'. Ugh. Also, the girls are TEN and already falling in 'love' with 14-year-olds and going on 'dates'. The absence of any adult supervision over their activities and Rockin' Robin's perverted antics set a very bad example for young readers. I intend to buy volume six, but it may well be strike three for Sugar Sugar Rune.
