Go To

Suou is an Ordinary High-School Student if one that gets headaches frequently. Well, at least she thinks she is. It all changes for her on a day at school she gets a headache larger than any she's had before. Exiting class and taking a moment to look through the window over Lake Cindy, things start getting weird. The lake turns blood red and a vortex appears. Out of the vortex pops an odd-looking woman claiming to be her beloved master, Creo Levigister.

The meeting with Creo asks a whole bunch of questions. Who is this supernatural princess? Why does she have the ability to cure Suou's headaches? What is Suou's connection to her? What is the true meaning behind Suou becoming Creo's "Sheravi"? Is Suou really just an Ordinary High-School Student?

Creo the Crimson Crises is an Shoujo style Yuri Genre manga by Takewakamaru, which was serialized quarterly in Yuri Hime from 2007 to 2010.


Creo the Crimson Crises contains examples of:

  • All Women Are Lustful: Applies to everyone except Akane. Initially didn't apply to Suou, but after she regains her memories of Creo, the two have at moment in chapter 10 that borders on pornography.
  • Bathtub Bonding: Suou and Akane wash each other in the bathroom, with Suou having to forbid Creo from joining them.
  • Berserk Button: Never threaten Suou in front of Creo.
  • Bifauxnen: Creo, sort of. She prefers masculine outfits but her cleavage and other feminine features are a dead giveaway to her true gender. Mind you, some of the characters still get confused.
  • Big Damn Kiss: End of chapter 9. That's a lot of tongue, Creo, you might wanna take it easy on Suou... not that she minded, of course.
  • Boobs of Steel: Creo, not so much in the early chapters, but the later one drew her breasts as being larger than her head.
  • Advertisement:
  • Cast Full of Gay: Cast Full of Lesbian in this case, with all the main characters being lesbians forming an all-girl Love Dodecahedron.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Creo is very possessive of Suou. One time, when Urara hugged her, Creo's expression changed into a Yandere face.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Being around Suou brings out this reaction with half the people she meets. If it doesn't, unless it's Akane, then they generally wish her harm.
  • Deal with the Devil: Urara befriends Kiki in order to get rid of Creo. That doesn't go too well.
  • Discount Lesbians: Most of the lesbian character are demons (who also happen to look exactly like humans.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Most of Creo's advances towards Suou look like she's either going to kiss her or have sex. Later chapters flat out drop the subtly, especially when Suou starts returning her affections.
  • Fanservice Pack: Somewhere between volume 7 and volume 8, Creo's breasts have become almost distractingly large.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Creo describes being a sheravi as this, despite by nature of the relationship the sheravi is the demon's property, though she doesn't treat Suou as such. This is enforced somewhat later when we find there was human girl back in the demon world that WANTED to be Creo's sheravi.
  • Horny Devils: Creo, she makes sexual advances towards Suou that half the time make it look like she'd rape her if Akane wasn't around to get in her way.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Creo, whose done things such as get naked and get into bed with Suou while she's fast asleep, and then suggest both sleep together naked.
  • Love at First Sight: Kikki develops one Urara.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Creo has a crush on Suou who eventually returns her feelings, Urara has a crush on Suou until Akane's barrier falls with her death and Urara loses all memory of her, and Kikki falls in love with Urara at first sight.
  • Magical Girlfriend: Yuri Genre example. The central pairing is between Suou, who initially starts out as an Ordinary High-School Student, and Creo, a Magic Knight demon princess.
  • May–December Romance: It's difficult to say since neither Suou nor Creo's ages are ever stated (still hasn't stopped Urara from calling Creo a lolicon), and when they're seen together in the flashbacks, we have one where they look the same age, and another where Suou is a little girl while Creo appears in her mid-teens.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Creo, the gorgeous redhead demon princess who's constantly nude or in revealing clothing.
  • Naked Freak-Out: Suou is a nervous wreck when she's caught by Creo almost naked save for a tiny Modesty Towel and passes out when Creo tries to dry her.
  • No Social Skills:
    • Kiki who's never even worn shoes or underwear until she joins the main cast. Her idea of making friends is to grope the first pretty girl that walks by, announcing her intentions, and breaking off a store sign as a gift of friendship.
    • Also, Creo to a lesser extent, though only with Suou.
  • Ojou: Urara who also has a Big Fancy House.
  • One Head Taller: Creo is considerably taller than her Love Interest Suou.
  • Ordinary High-School Student: The Protagonist Suou, is a simple high school girl, before she gets tangled with demons. The description even introduces her as such.
  • Photographic Memory: Creo aces a physics quiz by flipping through the physics textbook and memorizing it a few minutes before the quiz.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female : Creo's advances towards Suou are Played for Laughs up until the series takes a more serious tone, during which Suou returns her feelings, but if she was a man, than the reader probably wouldn't look the other way to them.
  • Sexy Surfacing Shot: Creo's first appearance is her slowly surfacing out of the lake, in a drenched schoolgirl outfit.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Creo doesn't have any modesty and doesn't mind being seen naked.
  • Shoulders-Up Nudity: During Akane and Suou's Bathtub Bonding, we only see the naked Akane from the shoulders up.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: Suou is targeted by a fraction of demons for her mother's betrayal of the demonic royal family, even though Toki herself is long dead.
  • Skinship Grope:
    • Kiki does this to Urara in a way that proves that Kiki has No Social Skills.
    • Creo also does this with Suou, though Suou doesn't react positively to it. Chapter 10 has Creo, recovering after nearly killed, and naked, pull Suou onto her and Suou trying to invoke Intimate Healing by licking Creo's slash wound, which is right between her breasts.
  • Sleeps in the Nude: Creo takes off all her clothes when going to bed... even when she sleeps beside Suou, who wakes up with Marshmallow Hell due to it.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Creo is a gorgeous and tall demoness, which makes her stand out since most of the characters are average schoolgirls.
  • Stripping Snag Urara accidentally snags Kiki's Modesty Towel when trying to clean the soap in her eyes.
  • Talking Animal: Gemini, Creo's pet demon who talks in Baby Talk.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: Suou wakes up on a morning and grabs something warm, and soft, and then realizes it's Creo's breasts (which she seemed to like). Creo is also naked.
  • There Is Only One Bed: At least that's Creo's excuse as to why she climbed into bed with Suou when she was asleep. Suou and her sister Akane don't buy it.
  • Trauma Conga Line: In a big Mood Whiplash away from the earlier lighthearted plot, Suou watches Akane die, finds that she was an Artificial Human and not her biological sister, and that none of her friends at school remember who she is because their memories of her were implanted by Akane, and after going to the demon world with Creo, endures watching Creo nearly die, and putting up with some characters that would like to slit her throat. Probably the only the thing that keeps her from completely breaking down is her moments with Creo.
