Despite the title, it's not really a Snow White retelling. An enjoyable light fantasy about a girl whose red hair keeps attracting trouble (example: a prince eager to make her his concubine), but all she wants is to pursue her herbalist studies and live a normal life. She runs away from the lecherous prince and is helped by a trio of friends she meets in the forest. What follows is a low-key story of friendship (maybe eventually romance?) as she works hard to stand on her own two feet, and her friends lend a helpful hand or ear while respecting her wish to work toward her dream without relying on anyone. Circumstances and class divisions threaten to unbalance their lives, but the story stays light and positive.
The art is simple and doesn't always do a great job of conveying reactions smoothly, but I hope that will improve in later volumes. If you're looking for lots of fantasy action, this is not the manga for you--no monsters or magic and not much in the way of sword-fights in this volume, at least. Still, it's a decent light escape of a read, and I'd like to see how the relationships progress.
