This is an entire series review, but is free of spoilers.
The Earl & the Fairy is a fairly new manga, probably one of the most current I have read. This shows in the artwork and writing, both of which is gorgeous. I love the illustrations. There is also an anime, but I have not yet gotten around to watching it.
Lydia Carlton is a fairy doctor, she can see fairies and her job in life is to solve problems between fairies and humans. One day, she is abducted, but later saved by an even more mysterious man. Lydia doesn’t know who to trust, she is a mere girl in the company of thieves and murderers.
I’m not sure I would consider this shojo but it doesn’t seem to fit into any other category. The romance is not a big part in this manga, and there isn’t even a kiss! Which, believe me, I would have loved to have seen-I love the main characters together!
This manga is fairly entertaining, and the illustrations are very easy on the eyes. There is some dry humor, but nothing compared to a regular shojo. If you like your manga with some fantasy, mystery, and magic, I think you will enjoy this one.
