Description
Taken from the Holy Scriptures of the Old Church of Selakiel:
"When the Earth begins to perish, the Messiah will descend from the Heaven on wings of light. Clad in darkness, he will be so little yet he will be so immense surely he shall bring salvation to everyone."

"The four saints shall appear to offer him their assistance. One will give the Messiah courage, one will give the Messiah light, one will give him wings, and one will shield him from his enemies."

Note: Chapters are numbered differently starting on volume 7, since it's a beginning of a new arc

An oddity

But pretty good nonetheless. This was a good read, but it all felt kind of loose. The story is interesting, but the way it's told makes it seem sort of shallow.

As someone else said, the story moves very fast and not really in a good way. At times, it almost feels like a summary of a fuller story that we were never actually told. There's the one year time skip which is weird when it happens, but beyond that there are many smaller skips in it as well.

Say, an event transpires, then in the next page or panel, boom, everyone is somewhere else entirely and it's days or weeks later. Often they'll set off on a long journey they say, but it just cuts straight to the destination. Things also happen without us seeing and then someone appears and we're quickly told, or left to assume, that these things happened.

This certainly pushes the story along quickly, but it also removes any sort of adventurous feeling and it keeps you from being drawn into the story as much.

The blending of comedy and drama is a bit awkward too. At times it feels like it wants to be a serious tragedy kind of tale, but then at times the comedy takes over entirely. Comic relief is one thing, but there are times when major plot points are carried out in silly, slapstick fashion and then it shifts abruptly back into serious mode forcing you to accept the silliness you just saw as being serious. It just seems a little strange to me sometimes.

Complaints aside, I still had fun with the series. I liked the overall story and the characters, I just wish they had slowed down a bit to tell us more about it and them.

the first time i read this manga, i thought it will be a light story manga of adventure when the heroes and the people they love rarely die and the heroes can make all enemies repent by their ideals of strong will. and i am totally mistaken with that opinion. the first chapters are all just the beginnings, but later on it is getting really emotional and moving. it is a story about a kind boy, doesnt have anything special, and meets with a girl that calls him a messiah to save the world. his power awaken as he saw a little girl killed just in front of his eyes without him being able to do anything due to lack of power. and later he has the power, but now the person that is supposed to be his leader and counselor, betrayed him and made him lost all of his memories due to despair of losing the person he loves. by the time he can meet the person he loves, that is really important for him, she forgets about him and has been controlled completely by the betrayer. now, he has to choose, either to save the earth in a brink of destruction by killing her, or saving her, despite the earth being destroyed?

human can be so selfish, but sometimes, some selfishness cant really be hated. especially when it talks about love.

the art has become more shounen and rough in volume 7. but it is getting better in a way. but some elements of art from previous volumes can still be felt and it we can still like it as the manga we know as "Watashi no Messiah-sama". the plot is interesting, specially when making the time span of one year with suddenly making the hero forgot everything. characterization is perfect with making the proganist as not somebody that is too strong, too idealist, too ridiculously miraculous with strong will power and ideal. he is just a man, ordinary man that is still growing and improving. he has a feeling that he cant lie to.

perfect manga to read on. dont miss it.

I really am enjoying this series right now. It's kind of tough at times because of the time jump, but if you think of the original as a prelude and the lacrima series as the actual story it makes a little more sense. I really enjoyed this series but then again i usually enjoy reading almost everything so my ratings are definitely my personal opinion.

Very unique one, plot and character development far more interesting than other, I 'ven't read the final volume yet but properly there will be no happy ending, recomended for people whose like shoujo art or tragedy story. Every secret will be revealed as the story goes so be patient.

Good but disappointing

I'm a little disappointed. It was shaping up really well, but then volume 7 came and made me very confused. It took a volume or two before what exactly was going on was clear again. The pacing after that was never really good though.

The author's indecisiveness between it being a serious story or stupid ecchi/comedy was annoying in the later volumes as well. Not a big deal for the most part, but when it did show up it was jarring.

But I guess the main disappointment is that there are better stories that could have been told with this setting and these characters. The protagonist is less interesting than his harem who are less interesting than the villains. The backstory chapters are better than the actual story. If you look at what the story is ultimately about, that's less interesting than what the stories of the secondary characters are about.

That said, I'm still giving it a fairly high score, because I liked it a lot, and the bits that I wish it was actually about showed up enough to make me happy(ish - needs more Lilu). But dammit! It could have been better!

At the beginning I already want to drop this manga, but I had nothing to read other than this at that time, so I read it till all, though I didn't really enjoy it.

The main heroine is really your classic girl, that can do nothing but just crying and seeking for help. Each time she tried to help, that just made things worse and worse. Yup, sorry it's not my taste. Instead, you'll find the other heroine more helpful in many situations.

The main hero is your classic type main chara with no good trait that only can do nothing but crying, being sentimental all the time, BUT said to be a the kindest person in the whole world. To some extent it's still acceptable, but if it's not changed till the end of manga, it's kinda frustrating.

The main hero also will get stronger and stronger in the name of SPIRIT, LOVE, and JUSTICE. Yeah, that's how things work in this manga. No training or whatsoever, as long as he put his mind into something and stop whining, he's becoming the most powerful.

The story itself is kinda random, and yet predictable, it's felt like the author just got an idea on a whim and wrote that, tried to make it"'acceptable" and done. He tried to make every bad guy is actually a good person, though that's kinda forced. The ending... once more time forced to be a very happy ending JUST for the main hero and heroine, but forget about sacrifice that needed to that. Yeah, poor Lilu, snatched eveyrthing by the main heroine, sacrificing herself for the main hero, yet getting nothing till the end, not even mentioned in the ending.

It's supposed to be very romantic story, yet it didn't feel it that way, just about someone saying "I bla bla bla" and I will do everything for her/him.

In the chapter that should've been funny, it's not funny at all.

I can enjoy both sora no otoshimono and gou dere, but not this one.

Oh my god, this is the best action/drama manga I've read in the longest freaking time ever. The art is so unbelievable fantastic in those later parts, it's just freaking insanely amazing. At first, lacrima stuff(volume 7+) was looking weird, but you get used to it, and then the awesome scenes just keep arriving.

The plot is epic. One or two twists are considerably foreseeable, there are seriously a couple plot points that are just plain epic, although that might be because of the art. It's a fantasy action romance adventure, and every bit of those genres are completely filled in(unlike, say, rave, where you see a romantic remark every 50 chapters...). character development is awesome, everyone has a part, pretty much any and every person(except that cool teacher guy and tarutaru, you never really see how they got so awesome). It's just... OMG, it''s epicly awesome.

Poor lilu. The ending fits, but that's why she's one of the favorite characters. Sariel was also amazing that 13th volume too.

That last volume, volume 13, had one or two rushed parts. The thing with Ryouhei was a bit... you know. The focus shifted a bit. Honestly, the first two volumes felt a bit rushed, although not much, but once you get absorbed, you get hella absorbed. The art changed between volume 6 and 7 is somewhat tangible, but you'll proably like it after volume 8+.

God, I love this manga. Art 10, story 9,85, characters 10, everything's almost perfect.

...I think the author wanted to change it into an ecchi manga after lacrima started. Not that much ecchi, but there are one or two scenes in one or two of the volumes that are... yeah...

READ IT.
