Description
In an age of chaos, the four governing spirits of wind, water, fire, and earth reigned. There were those who could harness that power to cast spells, and there were a few who were blessed with the ability to hear the spirits’ voices, and those people were endowed with the ability to control the “Darkness Rage”, “Luciffis”...

Twins, Rudius and Mattie, are on the run, trying to escape the Spell-Caster Monks, who are trying to capture them to take the Luciffis. When the two are separated, Mattie turns to a fortune teller named Kishiru Mishuru to enlist her help in locating her missing brother, and that’s where the story begins...

so disappointed!!!

The story is great, other than being a little short and kinda squeezed together. I was gripped to it from the very beginning to the very end. I like all the plot twists in it, though the beginning can be rather confusing with trying to get your bearings straight and everything, but that isn't much of a problem.

Overall I liked the story, but I was sincerely disappointed with the "let us hope for the future" ending that the author used. Very unsatisfying compared to the rest of the story and kinda kills the relationship and bond that the protagonists share. I felt Like Mattie was betraying Rudius in the end and it pissed me off. The other things is that the translation weren't very good. It was very hard to read and understand what was happening. There wasn't much flow to the story, I'm not sure if that should be blamed upon poor translations or poor writing by the author, but either way that was a turn-off. If you have time and are looking for a good story this is one, but don't be to eager for a fluffy, happy ending, because you will just be waiting for disappointment like I was. If you can make it past the troubling text and the confusing beginning then this one is a very good read and one I would recommend checking out.

Okay, yes, I'll admit that the beginning had me pretty confused, too, but as it untangled itself, I really do enjoy the story, so much so that I keep bugging the translator to hurry it up (She's probably ready to hurt me, lol).

Yes, there is a history between the twins, Rudius and Mattie that could potentially put readers off (though nothing overtly graphic). It is an integral part of the story, however, so if that kind of subject matter bothers you, then I suggest you read something else.

All in all, with two chapters to go in scanlating (Cireus-Scans is trying to get both of those ready for the end of Feb. release, though if not, the final chapter should be done for the first release in March), I'd say that I really do recommend this manga for anyone who likes this kind of manga. The art is fantastic, and the story doesn't drag.

Well only read the first chapter so far and the art is great and the story has amazing potential but it's so damn confusing. It seems to me to bounce about a bit, with events suddenly springing from nowhere and the terminology just adds to the confusion. It put me off continuing since it's 2am now but I'm hoping to continue when I'm more awake and find it's potential is worth struggling through the first chapter or so.

nice fantasy shounen

First off the artwork in this series is just completely excellent. I don't read a lot of shounen anymore but the artwork is too cool to pass up. The story is somewhat confusing to me at the momement, but seems to have some depth to it. There's definitely some brother x sister romance going on here in some way or other, so if that's a big turn off for you, don't read this.

as of this review I've read through chapter 9 of volume 2. thankfully cireus has been doing a superb job with the scanlations both in speed and quality, so I'm thinking this 3 volume series should be complete in the not too distant future.

I read the latest scanlated chapter and from that i found it pretty good, but i'll keep reading and probably change my opinion of it and make it more descriptive.
