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."

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.

two BIG thumbs up!
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.
Hmm weird, i read all the way up to Vol 10, the manga is as they say, sorta, typical, but it really kept me reading, i was very entertained, the plot had some very good moments, i love this manga, the chars are ok, the plot gets good, romance seems ok, funny ;) Give it a try, i found this one very interesting
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!
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.
this is a great manga. there is a little bit of blooshed, great storyline and nicely drawn characters. the manga is awesome
Don't waste your time.
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.

confusing but good
This is a very good combination of romance and supernatural story. The plot itself is quite interesting. Although the development of the love between the hero and the heroine isn't very well made, after reading many volumes, you are really made to believe that the love between the two is true. It is not much of a harem since the hero only has feelings toward one girl, which in my book is a good thing. The action wasn't bad, as there is nothing to complain about. The only thing i have complain about is the jumpiness.This is a very strangely paced manga. Anybody who reads up to volume 7 would realize this. Volume 7 will, and i mean WILL, very much confuse you. You'll be totally lost, asking yourself whether you have skipped a few volumes even though, in reality, you didn't. Actually, even before that, the pace is a bit weird. Ex: the main character gets from point A to point B right away without any signs that indicates that he has just move from one point to another. In fact, after volume 7, the manga still does that frequently, to the point where it stops bothering me altogether. (Later on, i actually expected it to jump). As i was reading volume 7, i thought for sure that this manga won't get anything higher than an 8, no matter how good the rest of it is. After frustrating volume 7, volume 8 will draws you in once more. then the manga will really start picking up the pace. It might be because i read it in one sitting, but i was really drawn in to the manga by volume 11. The ending is very nice, in my opinion. Although this might be quite frustrating to some people,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Every characters had a reason behind their action, and no one was really portrayed as the real bad guy. (everybody turned good)
It almost feel like the manga is childlish, meaning without the tiny bit of ecchi, this manga was made for kids. Despite that, I still like it a lot. The characters were lovable. The art was very nice. The story was jumpy, yet interesting. The harem and ecchi were almost minimum. The ending was predictable, yet i really loved it somehow.
Overall a very good manga, my only complain was that the manga was probably be better if they had 3-4 more volumes so that it doesn't have to jump so much. Have no expectation and a lot of patient when you read it, it's a very nice read.
Ps. Daxisheart's comment was a bit exaggerated, but i felt that it was quite accurate.

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...
