Katou Chihaya is the daughter of major construction contractor company's president. Just after graduating from high school, she attended a business party with her father and was being pestered by another company president's son so she made him faint with a karate chop. Just when Chihaya was wondering what to do, another company president's son, who calls himself the Prince on the white horse, happened to see everything and became interested in Chihaya. However, Chihaya couldn't be bothered to even tell him her name so their conversation only ended in a promise to name themselves if they ever meet again.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
My favorite this week was Ginga Rocket ni Ohagaki Kudasai, though it was quietly depressing. I really hope Earth doesn't get destroyed anytime soon. If you want something lighter, Isekai de Konkatsu Hajimemashita was a cute alternate-world romance that I believe is a complete story at 6 chapters. Those who are fans of horror will probably enjoy the creepy atmosphere and gore of Shibito no Koe o Kiku ga Yoi.
My opinion: Ginga Rocket ni Ohagaki Kudasai
- If you like the end of the world type manga and want to see what people might do when they know the world is ending, this may appeal to you.Isekai de Konkatsu Hajimemashita
- If you're in the mood for romance and castles, then you should pick up this manga instead. It's pretty short so you won't invest a lot of time into it either.Shibito no Koe o Kiku ga Yoi
- If you like ghosts or are in the mood for something a little more Halloween-themed, then you should check out this manga instead.Toorisugari no Ouji
- If you like more traditional romance with the typical plain girl and boy falling in love at work, then this might be right up your alley.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
