Great art, nothing else

The art, as usual from the mangaka (who started off as a hentai artist) is great, but the story is generic and shallow, very predictable with your usual human/elf stereotypes. I suggest wait till it almost finished to read it in one go.

The Art is fucking delicious. Surprise at Chapter 3/4 biggrin

I don't hate the story. Hopefully, it improves a bit. Was expecting more angst and drama, but it's actually pretty light.

I'm not sure where all the hate for this came from in previous posts but this has been a very enjoyable read so far. The childhood friend/secret crush has to move far away. The male protagonist jumped into the unknown to be with and declare his love for his childhood friend. That's a hell of a better reason than most of the lost in a fantasy world stories out there now. He ain't the brightest MC out there but at least he has guts.

There really isn't anything bad about the pacing. The releases take time but that's a pretty common problem. Read consecutively, the flow is quite natural.

The art is good, especially the fanservice. All the women are shapely and well developed. No lolis so far. One minor knock on the art is that the combat was kind of meh due to rather bland monster designs (too much black/not enough detail).

The writer is actually best when focusing on humor. Expect a lot of innuendo/misunderstandings as the MC meets women. Elves are also pretty fun in this story... bigrazz

Never could understand monthly/bi monthly mangas that only give you a paltry number of pages worth of plot progression. Seriously? 26 pages after TWO months? The mangakka is either very ill and thus unable to work long periods or is just a lazy individual. Hell the art and story ain't that great for such a long wait. If each chapter was an artistic masterpiece like Otoyomegatari then yeah I can understand the long time it takes to get a chapter out. But THIS? An "okay" manga that is hampered by it's long gaps in pacing and the usual cliffhangers <_<

@Drunkguy says, "There really isn't anything bad about the pacing. The releases take time but that's a pretty common problem. Read consecutively, the flow is quite natural. "

You admit that the long releases is a commons problem, what I don't get is WHY. Why can many other mangaka release weekly chapters with same quality art as this one while this series takes so much longer? Of course when you read everything released so far in one go the flow is natural, now have fun waiting a month plus for just one chapter averaging 30 pages (though last few were 19, 22 and 26 pages) with frustrating cliffhangers at every turn. Heck even the current scanlators say they've lost interest in this series!

Not Seinen!

After reading the review below. I still think it's Shounen Protagonist because he's a typical MC of Manga that suppose to target at younger Audience. YA Story in other word. A Seinen Protagonist wouldn't run into the light right away and would think more on it because people are not that one dimensional. Senien story have complicated theme that this story. This is basically an adventure and saving a Black and White World.

"All I want is to be married to hime and make her happy for the rest of her life." - Yep Shounen line right there. Anyway, the story is good. The art style is cool, and there isn't any overbearing cliche except for chapter 1 - instant power up and prestige because he's the MC.

It's feel rushed romance because it's telling us about their relationship instead of showing us anything, and the imminent harem of chapter 6 makes me want to puke for even considering this a romance. Harem and Romance don't go well together, especially in Seinen Manga.

The current reviews. There has barely been a few chapters out, at the time of this writing 5, and two reviews have said its rushed and generic.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the first chapter, it is established that he loves her and she possibly towards him and then they are off into a fantasy realm. Some may say that is rushed but there are a lot of stories out there that takes several chapters, even a volume or more to build up a "Do we love each other?" relationship. This manga though, says they do on the first chapter and the real story, the story in the fantasy realm, is where things start. The second chapter shows glimpse of them liking each other while the story rolls onward. Third chapter is mainly story. Fourth chapter deals with both their bond and story.
I honestly don't understand the complaint about rushing. There are a lot of manga out there that drags through the story and some ends abruptly or rushed due to publication or the author not being able to plan or work the ending. Since I'm mostly writing this review because I'm irritated at the negative reviews, I will just bash their opinion.
"Unsympathetic" main characters- Um. Compared to many other male protagonists in manga (depending on genre), Satou is not similar in the sense that he does not spend volumes whining and being afraid at his incompetence. There are dozens of weak-willed male mc that eventually grow up and But for every one that does so, there are a lot more that simply pisses you off from their incompetence. Mainly in manga that has multiple love interests. Satou's thoughts are seen throughout along with his actions. He doesn't take up a whole page worrying about things and at most a panel or two. He loves Nokana and will fight for her. He doesn't know the strange world he's in well or what will happen but he's doing what he can to be with Nokana.
Noakana Hime on the other hand, not a lot can be said about her since the action parts are about Satou so far. But by chapter 4, you can tell that she loves Satou.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For ten years, she hide on Earth (I assume) for her life and her true friend is Satou. Even though she comes to love him, she knows she can not stay because of circumstances so she kept it at friendship and wanted to keep him safe on Earth. But Satou came after her and now they're married. She gets to be with the one she thought was out of her reach. A barrier she built up for ten years dissipates. But she also knows the trouble he will have to face as the ring king along with him having a harem. So there will be love, comedy, and painful moments.
I do hope she gets a bit more active role but its a seinen so Satou is the figher.

"Shounen protagonist"- No, of course a high-schooler isn't a boy. u_u Shounen refers to boys elementary-high school and seinen is high-school and upwards. What really separates the two, in terms of manga, comes down to level of maturity and consistency of their themes. A quick search of solely shounen or seinen shows up more tragedy or horror subgenre for seinen than shounen. But there are horror shounen and non-tragedy/horror seinen. I digress.
This manga will NOT be like a top-tier seinen like beserk, vinland saga, kingdom, orange, etc.
But there will be mature themes and concepts.

Character that seeks "innocence/shoujo/pure" romance- Are we reading the same manga? No, probably not as nowhere does Satou nor Noakana seem to be in an illusion about their predicament. Satou may not know his surroundings well but he knows that he's there for Noakana. Noakana didn't think it was possible. They're together now and trying to work it out as the disaster is befalling the world. They're in a fantasy world... its unrealistic in that sense. Romance is anything goes.But seriously, what on earth does that have to do with coward?

tl;dr- Its barely out as of this writing, they love each other and have to deal with a global disaster in a fantasy realm. Splendid drawings and comedy with high expectations for story and if you're still unsure, read Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, Maybe's previous non-H and fully translated work.

Plot: Rushed and generic.

Characters: Main characters are unsympathetic. I expected more from a seinen, but got a shounen protagonist. A character that seeks an "innocent", "pure", or "shojo" romance is unrealistic and a coward.

As of now, there's 2 chapters out. It feels rushed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The whole "rushing into the light portal thing" after the girl he liked, and then her suddenly marrying him feels artificial. There's missing a part that shows them bonding and developing affection of any sort. Author could have made introduction a bit longer, because currently, I'm not buying it.
