La Princesse au bol enchanté
In the land of Kawachi, Princess Haruka grew up loved by her parents, until that day when her beloved mother is truck down by illness. In her last breath, she put a bowl on her head and made a prayer to protect her in the future. Fate prevents Haruka from taking off this wood headgear which hides her face.
As she became different in everyone’s eyes, she suffers from disdain and mockery. She decides to leave and go far away, and becomes a servant for a lord. Her way crosses that of Prince Kaito who falls for Haruka despite her curse. Yet, isn’t love said to be the greatest curse?
