-Description from Manga Updates cause I don’t know how else to summarize this.

Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 4/5

Opinion: WOW. That’s all I have to say is WOW. AMAZING graphics. Like CRAZY GOOD. I was going to give an 11 out of 10 but that’s just silly now isn’t it? But they are that good. You know how in some manga there are hot guys or hot girls, well… both the girls and guys are AWESOME. Especially the harem of guys. -drools- Another thing I look for in manga is clothing. Not a priority but you have to give props for awesomeness in that section and this story delivers. Wicked cool people in wicked cool clothing. Good ideas for cosplay!

Plot. Okay. So the plot is extremely amusing, original, and different. It is unexpectedly hilarious. I was practically falling out of my chair from laughing. There are quite a few characters but they all have a lot of depth. There are some cliches here in there but overall it is so amazing. Now for the main character. Nai is the cutest guy ever. I tend to hate male lead characters but Nai is just so lovable you would have to have no soul to hate him.

There is ONE downside to this series. There is A LOT of writing. As well, since there is a lot of writing there is also a lot of information coming at you almost all at once. It can be a lot. I tend to skip over the really wordy sections but I still understand the story. This story is awesome but not for the easily confused. But this usually expected in fantasy; how else can the author advance the plot while letting the reader know about this new world?

Final Rating: 5/5

Extra: None
