Boy Princess 9

January 9, 2008

Well.  The conclusion was very dramatic, but I didn’t wind up liking the way the events turned out… which is probably because a similar duck-and-run approach was taken by the main characters in Real/Fake Princess, which I finished just before reading this.

The main couple is shown living happily ever after.  What sort of creeped me out is that… I thought Nicole was supposed to be in his teens, maybe late teens, at the beginning of the series.  He was the youngest prince of his kingdom, but he just looked a lot like a girl.  The past couple volumes, he has been drawn to really, REALLY look like a little kid.  A little kid should not be in his position, though.  Especially with the happy ending.

Equal time is spent wrapping up all the loose ends and love affairs between the various side characters.  I was kind of disappointed that less time was spent on the main couple, since that’s who I cared about, but there wasn’t anything particularly wrong with the other couples.   The stories all kind of ended the way you would expect them to though, which was boring.

There was an epilogue dealing with Derek’s son and his lover.  Apparently… yeah.  Let me not go into that, but I was a little put off.  Because of the age of the lover.  The last sentence of the epilogue, the last sentence of the series, just kind of turns everything that happened around in a weird way that almost leaves things up in the air as to how everyone reacted to the event.  It’s almost like leaving the door open for a sequel, but I don’t know.

In the end, I really did not like this series.  It had its moments, but it was confusing and frustratingly difficult to follow.  A lot of other people seem to like it though, so take that as you will.
