Description
From Cireus-Scanlations:

The end of the Holy War.
The Pope, in an effort to suppress the remaining eye-witnesses who oppose his power, demands that a gag order be enforced regarding “the miracle” that brought the war to an end: the appearance of the five who bore the stigmata—the Holy Marks—the marks of God.

10 years later...
The diabolic faction that opposed the Vatican’s power and brought about the Holy War has awakened again and has begun assassinating the once-admired heroes of the Holy War. The Vatican has refused to acknowledge the situation, treating each incident as nothing more than simple coincidence, but in the years that have passed since the Holy War ended, the Pope has been rumored to have created an occult organization called RADEM, whose orders are to fight demons though they seem to have another mission—a much more obscure mission...

The Cardinal calls for an assembly of the region’s clergymen in the name of the Pope to discuss the situation, and to that end, an ambitious nun named Sister Rose is sent to the Teatela Province on a mission to locate Father Gabriel Iota—a priest suspected of possessing a very strong Holy Power...

Well, this is just another typical shounen. Super powers, plain characters and a war to complete all cliches. I don't have problems with typical shonen, but the plot in this one doesn't flow very well.

It's not a great story, but it's not bad. I just think the way the author presented it was kind of boring.

I don't know if it's because of the religious theme, but this seemed a goth manga to me. And not a forced one, but one that's really gothic! So those who like the style, may like this. The art is also good.

Well, in the end it's just another average manga. So, for an average manga, an average rating!

Cliche all around

From start to finish, this series bombards you with one cliche after the other. It gets to the point that you would be able tell what would happen in the next few panels, if not the whole story. This is not a good thing. A good story needs to be able to keep you interested. How can you be interested if you already know everything that's going to happen?

It's got a good solid art style though. The kind that's been proven to work well with readers and the shounen genre. The action sequences are depicted fairly nicely. No confusion to be had there.

If you're looking for a quick read and perhaps a refresher on some typical shounen manga plot lines, this here's for you.

Well I have to agree it does looks a bit like Chrno Crusade (hopefully no...man, that manga is a total disaster to me, especially the anime). But the artwork's okay, the plot is a bit confusing but it's being explained little by little and the characters are decent. And the touch of humor now and then is excellent, it gives a breather from all the action and suspense of the plot.

The art style kind of reminds me of FMA but the whole holy war thing reminds me of D. Gray Man. These are in no way bad things.

Well the history of the plot is a little confusing, but they make sure to go over it in detail (which could be the cause of some of the confusion). It has a nice blend of action and comedy and from the first few chaps it looks like something big is gonna happen in the long run. The first 3 chapters are enjoyable and above all entertaining so I give it:
