Rachel, the Duke's Daughter, was accused of crimes that she had never even heard of by the Crown Prince Elliot and imprisoned in the palace dungeon. Was this a plot hatched by one of her rivals or a conspiracy formed by political foes of her family...!? Rachel, however, only had one thing on her mind... "Hooray for prison! An endless lazy slow life! No more of that wretched royal education or those suffocating servants for me, it's time for a vacation!" Rachel, who was ready and rearing to go, will enjoy her leisure filled days harassing the Prince from her prison cell! Her liberating and pleasant (slow) life in prison is about to begin.
This manga started out as a 2 or 3 out of 10, because it felt like just one long gag. Where Rachel was thrown in prison, but she wanted to be there and ended up living a luxurious lifestyle in her cell with the prince being unable to do anything to stop her. She had crates of goods shipped to her cell and padlocked the door from the inside so guards couldn't come in and disturb her easygoing life. She's like a mob boss working from prison, able to get food and goods brought in despite attempts at security. She even hosts a "housewarming" party at one point, with foreign dignitaries and important merchants receiving invitations. But the all-important question, which this manga never addresses is "Where is she shitting?" As the story revealed Rachel's calm scheming and seemingly psychopathic detachment from emotionality, I came to enjoy her more as a character and the manga's rating slowly rose in my mind, but it never rose above mediocrity for me. It's good art, though I have to admit I don't like Margaret's character design. Margaret is the girl who the prince and others fell in love with and who Rachel was accused of bullying. Rachel schemes to get two of the boys circling around Margaret to have to confront their fiances about the fact that they've been flirting with another girl, and consequently lose the ability to aide the prince. I don't like the ending.
Pretty interesting and humorous. The ending was a bit of a disappointment. It didn't go out with a bang, if you know what I mean. Overall: 3.5/5 stars
