In this grim and realistic take on classic fairy tales, Prince Ludwig, a female corpse collector, is ordered by his father to find himself a wife more suitable than the women he often brings into the castle.

They still got one more vol to go and vol4 hasn't even been release yet. So it will be a while, especially for the Eng audience who can't read a 2nd language

As for Luwig's bride search, I wouldn't be surprise in the end if he ends up marrying the fairy/witch. Her bust is real and so far there really isn't another female character that fits him so well.

Well, I just read this and I must say that this was great. I wonder if he'll ever extend the series using other fairy tales. I really loved all the characters especially

Ah... it was fun seeing such a twist on old fairy tale characters.

Wish it would've been longer but there's only so many classics out there

LK's a pretty old series from Yuki-sensei, at least when it comes to the English scans. Always nice to see more people hopping on to her bandwagon.

I've only read a bit of LK (a corpse-loving prince, oh yes...). Still, given how AS blew my mind way open, it shouldn't come as a surprise.

I find that Yuki-sensei's stronger in fantasy. Her "real-life" series (Boys Next Door) doesn't seem that creepy. (Of course, the very fact that it's "real life" means that the "stunts" have to be toned down to be believable.)

I shoulda known, since it was the same drawing type as all those other mangas from whatever comics [HOPE THIS DOESNT HAPPEN TO SPECIAL A? ] but like, the ending was just like o.O and short. It's like that Belmont manga. Completely random ending. Like, something that a guy like me would do, because I'm not a professional and completely half-assed.

Like, don't get me wrong, this was damn interesting, despite being nowhere near cash cow material. It's just that, I hope some of these mangakas will learn that projects like this are the reason why you aren't the guy who makes giant paychecks in the manga industry scale and why your naruto-like movie isn't being published 50x a year or something. It simply reeks of ideas just someone with a bit of an imagination thought of, and can't see through to a proper end. I'm not saying stuff has to be long, but when you tie up all the loose ends by MAKING UP LOOSE ENDS THAT ARE ALREADY TIED IN A GRANNY KNOT, it gets stupid.

But say, this was some side project for someone who just really wanted to get it off their chest or something, it's quite the accomplishment
