In the 30th century, all of Earth has come under one rule and Kyoko is the Earth Princess. She has hidden her identity when outside the palace walls in order to allow her to attend school and get to know her subjects. (And because she doesn’t really want the duties of being the Princess…) But now that her 16th birthday is approaching she must step into the role of Earth Princess. That is, unless she can awaken her younger twin who has been in a coma-like sleep for the last 16 years. If Kyoko’s sister wakes up, then Kyoko doesn’t have to be princess, but to achieve her goal Kyoko must learn to master time itself. Artwork is good, but plot and character development are lacking. The reader knows that Kyoko is the princess of a futuristic Earth, that her twin is some sort of sleeping beauty, and that different “tribes” of people exist (i.e. flower tribe, dragon tribe etc), but none of this comes together to form a cohesive story. The premise of this story is very intriguing , but the execution leaves much to be desired. ( )

The silliness drowns out the seriousness and we’re left with a manga that reads like it was collectively written by a troupe of Brownies during a sleepover.

"Kyoko Suomi is the princess of Earth in the 30th century. She lives among the commoners, unwilling to reveal her true identity and ascend the throne. The king will allow Kyoko to live as she pleases, if she can revive her twin sister Ui, who has been trapped in time since birth. As Kyoko's 16th birthday approaches, crowds are rioting while she refuses to present herself to her subjects. But in order to revive Ui, Kyoko must find 12 holy stones and 12 telepaths to move the clock that has stopped time for her sister"--P [4] of cover.… (more)
