Description
The story takes place in an era similar to that of ancient Rome in a country called Chronos. It follows a group known as the Temple Mercenaries. In particular, the manhwa is about Ares, Michael and Baroona, three young warriors with mysterious pasts and surpassing skills...

The manhwa is notable for its subtle use of anachronistic elements (Ares' shoes are similar to that of classic Adidas), as well as very dynamic and fluid action sequences.

this manhwa should be on ur readin table if u like war battles with strategies with little martial arts plus sub romance plus betrayal plus friendship n etc...

The art needs a little bit gettin use to and there are no good vs bad crap, both the heroes n villans hav some good and and lots of bad in them... This will blow ur mind just giv it a try :-)

This manhwa has a rather unusual art style, which may put some off. If you can get used to the art, and even enjoy it, then you will find a story with a rich plot, full of emotion, deceit, and wartime strategies. The battle scenes are truly epic, and many of the soldiers are introduced to the reader on a personal level, bringing these battles to a level accessible by anyone. The characters may seem undeveloped at first, but become well fleshed-out as the story progresses. This is an amazing story.

If your looking for a manhwa/manga that is unique and is filled with adventure, action, and bromance, you need to pick this up. Trust me I've read One Piece, and Berserk, I know what I'm talking about.

This was so coool! For a manga with a Roman theme to it, I kind of pictured the wars like that but really Ryu Keum Cheol did an amazing job with all the plots and all those to die for moments.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Mikael's death and his treasures was one of the best moments :'
People say the art is bad because it looks sketchy or whatever, but I really like the art it makes Ares, Baroona, and Mikael look adorable...even though their killling people. lol Ares became the commander anyways. I really like his perrsonality throughtouthte whole series, goofy but serious at the crucial times. Barooon was just the cool guy, like how Mikael was in the beginning. Anywaysss, this was aweeeesome and def recommendation biggrin

The art isn't anything to rave about but the plot is!

The events leading up to the major conflicts were well developed and the importance of each character was really stressed. Its not hard to fall in love with the characters and be absorbed into their struggles. The main plot was a pretty big hurdle but when it was wrapped up at the end you really felt like this was going to be a manhaw that left an impression.

Don't be put off by the art! Sure it's not amazing but the story makes up for it 10x over. It's got a great plot,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
even after Michael dies it still manages to hold itself together.
Although it does become a wee bit rushed. But it's a really gripping read, I get abit annoyed with his girlfriend but it only really comes into the main story a couple of times. But the relationship between the three of them is great. Definitely read it!

I absolutely love this series so so so so so so much.
People say the art is a BAD point of the manga? crazy. The art is one of the many great points about this manga. It's beautifully flowing, and the action scenes are amazing- the fluidity is beautiful too. I love how all the characters are drawn rough but manly too- it emphasizes the toughness of the mercenaries, but doesn't take away the potential for fangirling :3
All the characters are cool... and they develop and grow and really the reader can't help but get so attached to them. I didn't think they were all that in the beginning, but that changes FAST. I became a diehard fan of Baruna, Ares, Mikael, Robin, Icarus, Cygnus, Carnival XD, and more.
The plot was so intricate and amazing- although there is quite a bit of politics/strategy between countries involved in between all the fighting going on, so if you prefer not to read too many little blurbs..... jk LIVE WITH IT it's worth it biggrin I hated reading them at first too, but eventually I realized they are actually quite important as well as interesting, and I grew to embrace and accept them smile Plus, the action scenes and overall plot make reading them 1000% worth it.
The action scenes are a work of art, and are absolutely beautiful and stunning and compelling and awe-inspiring.
There is a bit of comedy in this manga too, along with parts that are just plain TRAGIC and so many parts that made me hold my breath or hyperventilate biggrin
Overall, if you are an action fan, READ THIS MANGA!!

I have a very hard time sticking to mangas. I find myself bored easily. I read Ares all the way through with very little breaks. It is definitely one of the best I've read. This manga spares no one's feelings. It has the feeling of doing what it wants, and the best part about it, is it doesn't waste time! There are no drawn out fights or anything. Read it while you can smile

Honestly one of the best mangas/manhwas I've ever read. The story is great, concise, it knows what it wants to accomplish and it does it ever so eloquently.

I know some people get turned off by the art, but give it time. The story is the real gem of this manhwa.

Having following it for years.. i'm a bit saddened to have finally put it on my complete list...

The art is not so good since it's an old manhwa, but the plot is great! There were intense scenes where nothing but raw emotions drove me to reading it until its end. This is not your typical shounen where the main character has an unfailing sense of justice. It spares no time in giving war readers such as me a fair share of justified blood bath in the name of true justice, which is vengeance. =)
