Review for In the Clear Moonlit Dusk, Vol.1

In the Clear Moonlit Dusk, Vol. 1, Mika Yamamori, Guy, Girl, Princes, Romance, Cute, Slice of Life, MangaI received this manga from Netgalley/publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I am weak when it comes to female princes in stories and if you add another prince who is male to it and make them fall in love with each other? SIGN ME UP! I am in for that!

This book was just outstandingly beautiful, the art was just gorgeous, I love the designs for Yoi and Ichimura (sorry, forgot your first name already as no one calls you by that). They were definitely princes, especially Yoi looked stunning. I can imagine she gets the nickname the Prince from her peers. It also doesn’t help that she does some very princely things (like princess carrying a girl from her class during sports-events. XD).

I loved it when Ichimura came into the picture and showed Yoi that men can have an interest in her. That she can be seen as a girl (something that she seems to want and I can imagine, I know when I was her age that I had short hair, very skinny, and that I got enough questions on if I was a guy or a girl, which isn’t a question you want to get). That she doesn’t need to be always princely, not with him at least. I loved seeing them get closer and get her to be more herself and less the prince persona. I definitely loved seeing that Yoi. The Yoi who has zero experience with guys and who is shocked that a guy likes her + very unsure if he is just joking… or if he is saying the truth (definitely the truth girl, so much the truth). And one that is also a prince (though, haha, she thinks he isn’t given how he acts).
There were tons of sweet moments, moments with them talking, moments of them getting closer to each other. It was at times awkward, as expected given how Yoi is, but mostly it was just adorable. I was definitely squeeing and hoping for that moment that one of them would ask the other to date them. I was curious who was going to be the first. The more daring Ichimura… or Yoi?

I also loved seeing Yoi and Ichimura with their respective friends. They each got a nice group of friends.

The ending had me squeeing in delight and now I definitely want the second volume of this series!

I would recommend this adorable and gorgeous manga to all.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
