V·B·ローズ / V.B.Rose
Written by: Banri Hidaka
Original Run: February 20, 2004 – February 20, 2009
Ageha Shiroi finds out her sister, Hibari, is pregnant and she will have to be married in less than a month. When shopping with her friend, Mamoru, they meet Yukari Arisaka and Mitsuya Kuromine. Ageha finds out that the bridal store that Hibari is going to is owned by the two men. But during one of their visits, Ageha loses her temper about the wedding and accidentally injures Mitsuya's hand.
To make up for it, Ageha decides to help finish Hibari's wedding dress. Soon after the wedding in volume 2, Yukari offers a part-time job for Ageha at V.B.R. Ageha accepts this job, not knowing that it will ultimately change her life, and cause her to make new friendships-and even love.
Wow! I can't believe that I have been chasing and reading this manga for the past 6 years! I finally finished the last volume today!
The manga started good and interesting but the last volume is a little disappointing. Apart from the wedding of Mitsuya and Tsuyu which is very touching, the last chapter seemed to be rushing the story to come to an end and it's a bit confusing to me.
Overall, it's a good read. The mangaka indicated that the last 4 pages were in colour when published on Hana Yume but I can't find the color image on google at all! *DISAPPOINTED* Only managed to find one...
Side note: suddenly motivated to go continue my jap lessons....
