From a young age, Minami Harusumi has had recurring dreams of Veronica, a princess whose kingdom is on the verge of destruction. He believes them to be recollections of his past life, and that he is her reincarnation. Because of this, he is ridiculed by his classmates. One day, when the mockery escalates into bullying, he rediscovers magic - something Veronica had studied and used. Reassured his past life is not merely a fantasy, Minami tries to learn more about his past memories and the reason behind them...

It's "Once Upon a Time" meets Japanese high school life.

I have volumes 1-5, but I've also been keeping track of all the chapters that have been coming out volume 6 and beyond. Whenever I go back to Taiwan, I zoom right to the Japanese bookstores and pick up whatever Zero-Sum manga I can find. It kind of stinks that the Japanese bookstores, in the US, do not carry Zero-Sum manga.

"Bokura no Kiseki" is one series that I definitely keep looking forward to every two months, because that's Zero-Sum Ward's release period. It's worth every wait, even though, I wish it was monthly. (It's all thanks to Bliss scanlations for working on this series in the beginning. I wouldn't have known about this manga's existence if it wasn't for them.)

Getting right to the main point, "Bokura no Kiseki" is literally what I said in my subject line. If you're ever familiar with the American TV series, "Once Upon a Time", then, the formula of "Bokura no Kiseki" is a little similar and different at the same time.

In "Once Upon a Time", you have well-known fairytale characters transported to our modern world stuck in a bubble rural town. They don't have any memories of their previous lives as fairytale characters. They simply live their lives in a never-ending cycle "daze" with false memories. The show uses a pattern of showing us what they're doing in the current time, but also gives us flashbacks to the characters' fairytale lives.

This kind of formula is what "Bokura no Kiseki" plays on in its own successful way. You have characters who existed in another time, and perhaps, another world where magic actually existed. Something terrible happened in the past, between two kingdoms, that caused the involved parties to reincarnate into our modern day earth. So, all these people now have new carefree lives in the 21st century.

However, the main character, Minami, is special among all these reincarnated people. He seems to be the only one(?) who remembered things about his previous life as a princess. Because of this, he carried around a diary detailing everything that he remembered including how to write in that ancient language. However, his diary is also the main catalyst for things to follow as later into the story, more people begin to remember the ancient past...... To say more would be huge spoilers.

You have big reveals, mysteries, characters who are doubtful of other characters, characters who seem to be hiding secrets, who's good and who's bad, magic fights, teachers being slightly involved (whoo), different factions, and the whole feeling of "there's more than what it seems, right?" If you're looking for a good series to theorize on, this is it. What's more awesome is you have

not just gender swapping reincarnations, but also beauty swaps as well. i.e. Pretty girl gets reincarnated in a less desirable body..

The only thing that makes my head scratch a little is that, it's a little TOO convenient for every reincarnated person to go to the same high school. I mean, what if Minami was accepted to a different high school? But, the fact that we (definite spoilers for future volumes)

don't know who the prince and Glen reincarnated as makes me wonder on this all the more. Yeah, it would be funny if Glen's reincarnation never showed up. It would be kind of sad, but understandable in some way, if Zeze was the prince. D: Oh geeze. That would be kind of messed up. Innocent looking Zeze suddenly ends up being the prince and will have to fight Minami again? I don't think so.... His karaoke shop would be destroyed to kingdom come.

Also, Nanaura is soooooo suspicious. He definitely has an "alibi", but trying to figure out what exactly is he up to even up to volume 7 related chapters.... o__o 彼は不審者だけどク レイジーじゃないで す!!

Truly Epic

Let me just say this: Minami is a BADASS. Seriously. He is such a troll sometimes, it is the BEST. This is a very cerebral story; you really have to be paying attention to understand what's happening, since everyone has their own past-life back-story clashing with their current-life history as well as different motivations and alliances with other characters.

DEFINITELY give this one a shot, you won't regret it! There's a lot of perfectly justified set-up (it's such a complex story it would be terrible if there weren't), so read at least to chapter 5 before giving up on it. That's around when the real plot begins. READ IT!

Maybe I should wait a little longer to give this a 10, but it truly is awesome. The characters (especially the mc) are awesome, the plot is unpredictable and the art is quite good.
I was quite hesitant at first because it's josei and I expected it to be very stereotypical but I'm glad I was wrong about that. Definitely worth to try it.

I was at first hesitant to read this due to the josei tag. This does not feel like josei manga at all. It's more like a well rounded mystery fantasy story that can be easily enjoyed by any demographic except for very young kids. The plot itself is really interesting and the characters are well done. I read all 20 chapters in one night and now am craving for more! Highly recommend this.

This one is different (in a positive way).

Well, so far I only read 2 chapters (100 pages) but it is really good. Just at the end of chapter 2 some tension/perhaps action developes. I feel like it is going to be great.

So I started this as a light read, ya?

It's got such a solid plot line, you can tell the author knows exactly what they're doing.

I am in love, and to pass time until the next (much needed!!!) chapter comes out, I'll be reading other works by this mangaka.

This wentt WAYY WAY WAYY beyond any expectations I had.
I am addicted.

Also for the two comments below: I guess it just depends on the pace you read it? I followed all that happened, but I certainly wasn't expecting for it to happen that way! It kept me on edge and guessing, thats what I loved about it smile

The first 3 chapters seriously have you glued to the screen or whatever you're reading this on. The beginning is seriously epic. With such a promising beginning, it's easy to let people down afterwards though. Would like to see more chapters..

This manga looks very promising, especially with the abundant amount of information from past life and present plus the characters. The art is also great, I prefer Veronica-self better than the current, she looks so cool or cooler. The main protagonist seems to have a good head on his shoulder, dealing with problem through rationalization with a righteous presence of a royalty. Can't wait for more.

I just read the first two chapters, and it's great!
I didn't expect much, 'cause I don't read much of this genre. But the art was great, so I tried.
And I'm really captivated. Not much was happening, but somehow it was interesting and I couldn't stop reading. Now, I really can't wait for more. Really nice. Try, if you thought it's interesting so far!
