What the community says about The Earl & the Fairy (Vol. 1)
- "I really enjoy the concept of "fairies" and "fairy doctors". It's interesting and was presented in a light that didn't toss it into the stale supernatural-esque category. I don't really, however, like Edgar. I understand that in this story, as with many, and many more, and still many more, it "fits" to give him the cruel/kind reverse personality. I guess I'm just not buying it anymore... this might not bother you at all, but I'm growing to dislike this kind of male character, alongside the continuously flustered female characters who still tend to stick around a wishy-washy guy like that (though Lydia isn't such an offender in that sense). It just seems to lack the light of reason behind darkened eyes, so to say."
- "The Earl & the Fairy by Mizue Tani is an exciting graphic novel with beautifully illustrated mangas. I got this book because it was recommended to me in the bookstore for fans of the Black Butler series. It is an imaginatively and lovely story with superb art. I look forwarding to reading the rest of the series."
- "I got into manga as a young teen. I like reading manga stores even though I am now an adult. This is a unique story, but it is geared for young adults that are just a bit beyond my age demographic. I rated it high as I would have really enjoyed it a few years ago."

in What are the best shoujo manga"I had both a love and hate relationship with this series (which recently ended in Japan). On the one hand, I loved how the author really researched and then wove in the fae history of the British Isles. With everything from the Green Knight to Faerie queens woven in, it was a fresh take on ages old stories. I also loved the artwork - each page was a real treat to enjoy the drawings. But on the other hand, all the characters were very flat and one dimensional - mustache twirling evil villains and Edward, the hero, seeming fairly ambivalent throughout the story. The artwork felt 21st century, the characters felt very 1970s shoujo manga cliche. The heroine is a sweet character but a bit too pollyanna for my likes. Those who like innocent and sweet main characters will definitely love this book. Edward, the hero, is one of those types who seems like he doesn't care about the safety of the heroine - as long as she furthers his aims. But of course, we will be given hints throughout the series that that may not be the actual case. I think the key word here is that this is a sweet story - a sugary confection that tastes good initially but may leave you wanting something a bit more filling at the end"
- "This is an OK book but not one of my favorite. Granted it is geared toward young adults so the romance content is going to be a bit watered down for my taste. All in all it might make a good read for the younger crowd but anyone out of their teens should probably look elsewhere. "
