It's not the best story ever, the characters are a bit shallow and you can see things coming from miles away.
There are a lot of descriptions and information blocks that add very little, the space could have been much better used to describe and flesh out the characters and their environment.

They are from radically different species, but it is more of an excuse than anything else as it doesn't build on these differences and/or similarities.

It is supposed to be a story where a strong human-looking beast comes to learn... more>> about positive emotions and appreciates art, but the storytelling manages to leave you with the feeling that the boy is a crafty monster tamer that made the monster that supposedly caught him into an entity that would not hesitate to sacrifice her own well being for him.

Don't get me wrong, it's not the worst thing I have read, by a large margin, it's just that it seems to be going for a certain feel and fails to deliver.

The translation is fine as expected from yoraikun, you are not going to have to suffer unedited machine translation, it is all in properly written English.

(I guess reading this after re-reading the cicada dragon one does hurt it a lot, as they are very similar on the subject matter but so different in execution and quality)

All in all, while it's certainly not something to remember for years, it's decent enough to waste a few hours if you are bored with nothing better to read. <<less

It's not easy to find a Monster Girl romance without a harem, or excessive perversion, but if you're reading this review, then your search is over. I think this might be the sweetest boy meats monster girl story out there.

There aren't many chapters, but each one is fairly long. In fact they are long enough that towards the end of the first chapter you might be getting a little bored of waiting for our girl in green to show up. That's not to say there is anything wrong with the... more>> MC, he is the week type but he isn't dense. It's just that he is a normal, if a sickly human being in a forest filled with dangerous beasts. He is realistic about his limitations.

The most disappointing aspect of this story is that it ends just a little too soon.

Spoiler

We reach the end at the point where the next step in the couple's relationship will be the happy go lucky hand holding lovey dovey cuddle time stage. We are right at the payoff point when the author skips out on us and leaves the rest to our imagination.

I admit I cried.

I'm partial to love stories. I adored this work.

I usually disdain soft heated self centered characters who never let themselves value their own self worth. Who's self esteem leaves them empty.

I usually dislike man eating monsters that kill and eat people.

But.

I love this story.

I'm not even sure why someone who didn't read it (and probably have a severe moodswing problem based on the reviews they previously wrote) gave this series a low rating, but who am I to judge?

It's a simple short story. About a boy who seeks for a place where he truly belongs. He was ditched in the middle of the woods and met a maneater-flower humanoid beast (alraune?). The whole plot is about how they grow to notice their own feelings and grow fond with each other.

Personally I think the... more>> epilogue is a bit rushed; I really hope to see more about the beginning of their love relationship in detail. But maybe an open end like that can be considered satisfying in its own way.

Big thanks for Yoraikun, for bringing this series to the surface. <<less

This novel is beautiful!

This simple story turned out to be so beautiful! What really made it stood out are the emotions that the main lead develops as the story progresses. The characters may seem weak at first, but that what makes their development beautiful! It really gives you a feeling of how beautiful and innocent an emotion called "love".

And at the end, it makes the readers contemplate how beautiful the ending is.

I would love to read some fanfics after the events of the epilogue. :D

You might think it's a bit early for a review (as this novel was just posted on the site), but this novel just has a s*upidly large amount of unnecessary descriptive text. Combine that with the sob story at the very start and the MC who's only character trait is being pessimistic (and likes art?).

I would save it for later, but I have no intention of reading so much for so little.

Also this a short story, but the chapters feel like they never end.

Roselyne reacted strongly to that portion.
It's not as if the spottings of blue roses were few in number in the world. But their spotting sites shared a commonality, and they were often in the depths of forests humans rarely set foot in. What's more, if you tried to bring one back to grow more, once a week passes by, the blue color will drain away. Given a week, it becomes no more than an ordinary white rose. By the way, when a woman who was once a beauty completely changes in the span of only a few years, they might say, 'She was a blue rose'.
Whatever the case, blue roses were rare. While he had no intention to take one back and succeed the Grant House, since he had come all the way there, he did think he might as well see one at least once.

I gave this a 5* because the score I originally had in mind, 4.5, rounds up to it. This story is decent enough, and the romance is okay.

Even though it's a nice story, something feels missing. Even though it focuses mainly on our MC and the FL, the world building still could've used more work. A LOT MORE. Without much world building, it felt as though I was just a spectator. This made it really hard to immerse myself into it.

The romance feels half-assed. You can feel them grow closer... more>> but the author skips out on any truly "romantic" scenes. Even in the afterword and epilogue, there isn't really much besides a vague implication. It could use more work but the interactions between them were (kinda?) heartwarming and made up for it.

The translation is absolutely phenomenal. Amazing job as always to these translators.

This story was heartwarming but that's about it. You won't truly feel immersed in it but it's a good read that can be sped through in 2-4 hours. <<less

Some times, we need to get off from all those junk novels.
Some times, we need to think a bit more about life.

On the educative plan, there are a few things we can learn from this story.

1: Building a fire pit

2: Grafting a plant onto another

Emotionally, we can also dream or contemplate about this story. In the aspects of love and friendship.
