Summary (via Goodreads):
Shirayuki is an herbalist famous for her naturally bright-red hair, and the prince of Tanbarun wants her all to himself! Unwilling to become the prince’s possession, she seeks shelter in the woods of the neighboring kingdom, where she gains an unlikely ally—the prince of that kingdom! He rescues her from her plight, and thus begins the love story between a lovestruck prince and an unusual herbalist.
Snow White with the Red Hair is just as beautiful and romantic and full of the feels like I remember. I’ve watched the anime several times, so I knew the manga would be even better. The art is undeniably beautiful. I could gush about this story all day.
The story does have a ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ vibes but it’s really short-lived and becomes something more amazing. All the characters I adore so much. Shkirayuki is a calm blaze. Zen is a dashing prince. Kiki is strong and beautiful. Mitsuhide is loyal to a fault. Obi is funny and always makes me laugh.
I’m so happy this series is finally being printed in English. I can’t wait to see where the story goes and how what I know from the anime intertwines with the original material.
