I second noobzilla. I think most of the commenters have good points, including the negative ones: this is not a series with great art, it doesn't have new original ideas, the characters are pretty superficial, but...

Somehow it's really fun to read. The pacing is only bad in the magic stone auction arc, which is a bit annoying, at the beginning, but gets better in the academy arc, the hidden identity of celebrity-kick ass magician adds a constant comic irony to the story and the characters do actually develop. At the current stage of the story (chapter 60), there has also been some development of the 'bad guys' and some pretty tense situations to defuse.

Gets my recommendation.

As a mage-ruled fantasy story, this is not entirely generic. I can't put my finger on it but it has the all the right hooks to keep you reading - the main character is such a wish fulfillment type of hero that you can't help but like him. It doesn't get a perfect score but it has a lot of potential and I think the story telling is well done. So far so good, i'd recommend it, and I don't normally recommend mainstream type shounen easily.

I tend to wait a few weeks and read multiple chapters in a go, it's quite enjoyable, I don't see anything wrong with pacing or plot arrangement.

I have read this work until the latest released chapter. I am frankly surprised at its high rating. It is extremely slow paced. The action is okay, but nothing to brag about. Character development is extremely lacking, bordering on comedy and parody. The art is good for a colored series. I give this series a 6/10. Nothing special, but worth reading if you are bored.

rood just totally rock \m/ . . this webtoon reminds me of noblesse. I really love these "I'm strong but i dont care" type of protagonists. I guess what really brought this webtoon up is ROOD. I just hope this won't get repetitive just like in noblesse. If that happens i would give this one a 10. ;D

the story's quite unique , it's just that all those mysteries kept on piling up that it kinda gave me a headache -,-" . hope they would reveal atleast one on the upcoming releases. beside that it's a "thumbs up" for me.

keep it up sensei !!
keep it up scanlator-san !! \m/

Hate that this is Biweekly!!

This is a good webcomic, but since its biweekly the releases are slow and every released chapter leaves an unsatisfying feel to it T.T

Edit: Glad this is a weekly chapter release now, so far the chapters are really interesting and not repetitive, there is also this mystery vibe to it with the demon race and what they are planning to do, and also about Lidusis who emits dark mana like Rood. This is just a theory, I think the darkness type of mana is emitted by those experienced with extreme tragedy, like Rood himself. The story has lots of potential and there are large number of mages from tower and organisations which we haven't even see. I am anticipating it to be more in depth about many things and I hope it continues for a long time. However, since it is a webcomic I expect the story to be going a bit slow.

It starts out kind of slow, but later on it gets really good. The main character is just Awesome, Rood is just too amazing. I also like the mysterious prologue in the beginning, I would like to see how would the author explains that part. I Highly recommend this webtoon!

I love secretely powerful characters that protect the opressed and undo the unlikeable full-of-themselves bullies who always underestimate them till it's too late.
So the hero of Black Haze is exactly what I love!

This story is amazing, I can't wait for more, as Japanrocks puts it bi-weekly is frickin torture!

Highly recommended.

Starts out kinda slow. In fact, I think I read like two or so chapters and stopped reading, but I picked it up again and I LOOOOVE it.

As someone mentioned already, once you enter the school part of the story, it starts picking up. I just love it when Rood's being strong and badass. At the same time, I find it funny how he pretends (barely) to not be strong at times.

It reads like a faster paced Crepuscule (Yamchi), although the plots are aren't really similar. (The only thing that's actually similar is the magic school aspect, I guess.)

This is a really good! Unfortunately it comes out biweekly and many of the chapters are short and leave you hanging. I like that there is plot development rather than just a one or two chapter story that suddenly jumps to a different topic. The main character is cute, but has that secret double-life which always leads to an interesting story. Can't wait to see how the story develops!
