I watched the anime long before I knew of the manga. Though now that I've read it, I guess I'll share some thoughts.

Art I might compare to Berserk; both 90's artwork and good for it's time if not still decent.
Story however, like SyaoranX says, I think it wasn't paced completely as the ending felt like there wasn't proper closure; it doesn't seem like everything's resolved with Majik, Cleo or Hartia. (Though I suppose that's Orphen's nature.) Aside from the ending throwing me off a little, I still fairly enjoyed it from beginning til end as Orphen was a fairly fun read, as the anime was fun to watch.

If you want to kill time or like sorcery and medieval themes, I might recommend trying this out.

Six Volumes, story was too forced. pacing didn't flow well. characters were well thought out, but were not developed well. art is pretty good for its time.a "meh" manga. good for passing the time.

And i finally just read it last week.. It's quite entertaining, but the story/plot was kind of confusing, especially on the 2nd volume.. though I kept on reading it.. amazing. Even I am bewildered by my patience.
