Description
From CPM:

The Devil's Castle was a dark and somber place, until the good-hearted apprentice ASARELLA stumbled on it in a goodwill mission, against her master's wishes--the archmage ELIWHO. Things sour quickly, as Asarella was bound with a blood pact to the Devil, KAINEN. Little did she know, the mage harbors a secret love for her that will only complicate her training for the upcoming apocalyptic battle. This sets up the most unusual love triangle of all space and time.

This was by far one of the most unique series I've read so far... Every aspect of this manhwa (from the storyline, setting, relationships to character design) were very creative and well thought out. This series is definitely worth checking out...but this one kind of isn't for those who go for the nice and happy happy happy story lol

Korean-Manhwa are doing a decent job with the translations and all but omg cpm.... =.=;;

This is one of my favourits it is such a wonderful story and i love the characters. I brought the first volume from amazon and it got me hooked straight a way. Sadly the second volume doesn't come out till march so i'm so happy that KM are translating it and i really hope they do carry on till the end because i really would like 2 what happens in this manga and who Rell will pick ? i'm hoping the demon lord i love his character and i think he goes well with Rell.

Well, I'm a sucker for beautifully drawn manhwa =3 I just love the style of flowing hair. I don't quite understand why the manhwa ga decided to fluctuate the fashion into, half sahara desert, and then half modern times. The demon lord, king whatever, is really hot, and so are all the other main male characters >.<. I agree that the plot twists and wriggles around here and there, but still, it is still an interesting story, and the touch of humor completes it. I hope that KM can finish this series...I've sort of gotten sick of traditional shoujo manga, so, hopefully this will satisfy my appetite. xD

Don't let the first volume deceive you--this manhwa is actually incredibly messed up. XD Like the first commenter said in his/her title,"sinister" describes it really well, but it's not a horror manhwa; at least, not exactly. Judging from the raws, it seems more of a tragedy, though I don't understand Korean, so I can't be sure. But there's a lot going on behind this asides from "weird Demon King" and "Asrella, the mage-girl." (And Elihue... btw, what is up with CPM's weird spelling of his name, anyway? >>;;)

It's not a typical shoujo manhwa where everything is set and predictable, defined in overdone, cliched stereotypes--the plot keeps twisting and writhing around (I should say that the timeline does, too..). This overarching sense of angst/tragedy on top of the strange and intriguing storyline is part of the reason why I really like this manhwa (though I have this unsettling feeling of DOOM whenever I read it.. XD;;)

The character designs are really good; this manhwa-ga actually put thought into what an immortal being would be like, and it shows. Asarella is intriguing as well, and the drawing in general is really good, with masterful usage of tones and an interesting style that's an aesthetically pleasing mix between shoujo and shounen. The universe beyond the plot is rather complex, leading a definitely fantastical air to it, but thankfully the manhwa-ga doesn't "tell" too much (unlike CLAMP, with truthfully always puts me off their series..).

Masca is worth reading, if only to check out the Demon Lord (who is definitely one of the hottest things I've seen on paper). But I think that the plot will definitely suck you in, as it did me. ^^

I can't believe there are so few people liking it.
One has to admit: This manhwa is kind of odd in a sense, but unique seen in another point of view.
A mix of fantasy, humour, romance, magic and adventure makes it a certain entertainment. The only thing that bothers me are the time lapses which occur nearly every single chapter.

For example you should read the sixth chapter after the first one if you want to maintain the right timeline.

I can only say one thing: Read it!
