ARRRGH! I want to know what happen next! This manga made me hunt down the original, and now I love it even more (I much prefer this version to the original). Kira’s handling of ‘his’ wife is awesome, and the emperor’s jealousy is very entertaining. I’m really curious(so curious I want to buy the japanese version), but amazon doesn’t have number 3 - 4 in stock. Thank you for scanlating this, and i hope you will updates soon - this is my favorite wingtip project.

Thank you for scanning this and so introducing me to the original. I was going to say that I actually slightly preferred that to the manga, but with the latest chapter, now I’m not so sure. Please keep it up!

Thank you all so much for translating this manga! I found it by hitting the “Random” button on Mangareader, and once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. It’s not only hilarious, it’s hugely, delightfully complicated. It’s a great story and I’m very glad you chose it.
