Junko Mizuno has a unique drawing style! It's a type of Japanese Manga art that combines "Kawaii" or "Cuteness" and the macabre! This was the first title by Mizuno I read and it got me hooked to her strange art and story telling! The story is about Cinderalla, who works at a resturant with her father... who dies. One night she went to the graveyard... and found her father a zombie with a new zombie wife and with two new zombie step sisters!! Sound interesting so far?! It just gets better (and more like the original Cinderalla...kinda...) when she falls in love with a musician zombie Prince!! But how will Cinderalla, a living person, get a zombie like him? Read more and find out! Overall, this is my favorite Mizuno book I've read!
Cute style but deadly plot. Mizuno has twisted a classic fairy tale into a mind warping tale of women's social class and anemic pop stars (yes, I got that off the back of the book)make it an enjoyable, although kinda short, read. She does have no problem drawing topless women, so unless you are used to that aspect of japanese culture, I would stay away until you can handle the main chracter topless for about half the book
