Pretty fair review. I don't know if I thought about Kaoruko's clothes. I'm very much looking forward to the Viz edition and have it pre-ordered. The concept might not be the most original but, I think it's a fun and sensual series. The non-consensual moments didn't bug me that much. I've seen stories like this one before. But, I agree parts could be a little unsettling.
Still, the art is pretty nice. I think Ohmi's art for this title is better than Midnight Secretary. Guess that makes sense as she did it more recently.
Really I checked out Majo no Biyaku initially because of the herbology angle. (I grew up with some experience of that from my parents). It's nice to see some alternative healing aspects in the series. Like in volume 1 spoiler[ Kaname gives Kaoruko an amethyst necklace. Amethyst is an awesome stone useful for promoting calm and chastity among other things. ]

I remember Ohmi said something in one of the volumes along the lines of thinking about or researching things but, just let her imagination dictate and therefore there might be some deviations from more realistic practices regarding the magic.
Of course, the books are supposed to be fantasy. Hopefully the series will do well.
