[[caption-width:240:Anise and all her boys, [[UnwantedHarem not that she wants them]].]]

Title Translation: Kiss of the Rose Princess

So you think your father is a manipulative bastard out to ruin your life? Anise Yamamoto would like to compare notes if you wouldn't mind.

First her father straps her with a choker that won't come off and he [[BlatantLies claims]] is a amulet of protection. When said choker finally does come off (through no efforts of her own) she finds herself [[UnwantedHarem saddled with four teenage boys]] calling themselves her 'Rose Knights,' who [[CastFromHitPoints use her blood to fuel their magic]], a [[VaguenessIsComing vague prophecy of doom]], and then her father decides to [[FromBadToWorse come home]].

Anise can summon the boys via color coded cards and order them to do her bidding. They must do what she says or get beaten with rose thorns. Downside to having a quartet of hot guys who have to do your bidding or face rose thorns of doom is that said magic is powered off her blood. (This is strongly implied to be the only reason Anise doesn't run around trying to [[http://www.mangareader.net/831-36118-6/barajou-no-kiss/chapter-2.html take over the world]].) Her father is trying to replicate the Rose Contracts for reasons unknown and likes to mess with Anise's head on the side.

This would be your bog standard {{Shoujo}} manga except for the Author's fondness for [[SubvertedTrope subverting]], [[InvertedTrope inverting]], [[GenderFlip genderflipping]], and [[PlayingWithATrope generally tossing about]] the tropes common to the genre.

!!Examples
* AngstComa: Mutsuki, having spent years in sleep, suffers amnesia after [[spoiler: killing his older brother. Averted as he collapsed before actually killing him.]]
* ArchnemesisDad: Pity poor Anise, not only is her father the school doctor, he is literally out to ruin her life in the most sadistic ways possible.
* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler:Seiran]]. He looks like a teenage bishie. He's actually a [[spoiler:three-year-old homunculus.]]

** GenderFlipped with Anise and her knights because when they are in trouble she'll ignore everything else to save them.

* ColorCodedCharacters: The Knights. The color of their rose matches their hair.
* CreepyChild: Seiran. Don't believe me? In one chapter, he whips up a high end explosive in about 3 seconds, and detonates it with a smile on his face. He has apparently been using hallucinogens on Kaede for years, admits to trying to dose Anis with a love potion, carries around an acid strong enough to melt steel, and his medicines, although effective, are so horrific that they make there drinker's "See Hell", according to Kaede.
* CrossPoppingVeins: Anise gets these pretty much any time she has to deal with Tenjou for an extended period of time. Or whenever Kaede talks back to her, which is often.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Anise. So, so much.
* DamselOutOfDistress: Yamamoto Anis will not take any of these dimension warping shenanigans sitting down, thank you very much! She may have just been informed that her [[ArchnemesisDad father]] intends to sacrifice her to a seal of unknown demonic origin and otherwise make her life hell, but she is not going to just sit around and mope. No. She is going to kick her Knights' collective asses into gear and they will obey or they will get the rose thorns of doom.
