All high school freshman Airi Hoshina ever wanted was to someday live in a cozy home with a loving husband and find joy in the little things in life. As a result, she makes it her daily mission to get to school on time because school legend has it that the longer one's non-tardy streak is, the better boyfriend one will find. But just when her daily routine is working like clockwork, an occurrence of fairy-tale proportions threatens to disrupt her grand plan.


Meru Puri provides examples of:

  • Adorably Precocious Child : Aram in spades. But don't tell him. Young child? Check! Almost always serious? Check! Responsible? Check! Worries a lot for the person he cares for? Double check! Hates being called cute and treated like a child? CHECK! … And still adorable when he allows himself to be a kid.
  • All Myths Are True : it seems our Fairy Tales really happened in the Magical Kingdom.
  • Always Save the Girl : nomatter what, Aram will always always rescue Airi
  • Amnesiac Lover: Around vol. 3, Aram loses all of memories of Airi, even though her presence still affects him..
  • Armor-Piercing Slap : Airi's favorite attack.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking : the royal families are the strongest mages in a magical land ...
  • Badass Adorable : Kid!Aram can hold himself against mages way older and more experienced than him in magic. He keeps part of his adorableness when he grows up.
  • Badass Bureaucrat : Lei won't lift a finger to help Airi, nor Aram. Unless he has no choice because of the job.
