synopsis: For heroine Ooba Kanoko, life isn't much fun. Her family runs a small restaurant, where she slaves and is horribly mistreated by her two sisters, parents, and grandfather. (Not to mention the fact that her name said aloud as "Oobaka no ko" = "stupid kid"!) Poor Kanoko cooks, cleans, and takes the blame when things go wrong. However, her life takes an unusual turn when her family suddenly loses what little money they had, and everything they own is about to be repossessed -- along comes a ragged looking, tall stranger with an interesting proposition that will turn Kanoko into a billion dollar Cinderella! At a price to Kanoko...
comment: the idea actually was quite interesting but unfortunately the author tent to make the reader confuse by the plot she described in it. Maybe she wanted to make the reader having a hard time guessing about what will be happening throughout the story but instead it made me as the reader got bored easily and lost the will to continue reading. And i have to say I'm not really enjoying the drawing either.what a pity..
