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

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
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!
this is a great manga. there is a little bit of blooshed, great storyline and nicely drawn characters. the manga is awesome
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...
it's deep, real deep. i though it was something light and easy like MAR when i first looked at it, but wow. one of my favorites. ending felt a bit short, i wanted to see a bit more afterwards, but overall very satisfying.
i read this over a period of two days only taking time to take little cat naps in between the story... it was truely beautiful... i highly recommend for the fealings it invoked in me... READ IT!
