Description
Princess Nakaba of Senan is forced to marry Prince Caesar of the enemy country Belquat, tantamount to becoming a hostage.

With only her attendant Loki at her side, Nakaba must find a way to cope with her hostile surroundings, her fake marriage...and a mysterious power!

Well, I have been following this For.Ever. The ending was decent. It wasn't spectacular or anything. I wasn't disappointed by the end though, which is great. Poor Loki....I rather liked him quite a bit. Also that very last panel.... Nakaba. O.O Her face expression is like "how did this happen?" ;p

I had high expectations for this manga since my friends said it was pretty good. At first, I thought that this was an amazing manga. I really liked the art, the plot, and the characters, however I dont know if it was just me but the "tempo" of the plot changed after chapter 45. I found that it was rushed after that point and was done half-assed confusing me for a while....well thats just me anyway...BUT dont get me wrong, I did like the ending!

I liked this manga at first but as it went on it got totally dull. The characters' personnality change a bit drastically and the romance is dragged on and becomes a bit heavy. The main female character was really egoistical and annoyed me a lot by her aloofness and weak personnality.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The thing that made this manga unenjoyable was the fact that the main(forgot her name) realised how she was hurting that poor Loki and cried etc but yet she continued to let him suffer. I didnt like how unconscious and egoist she is about him who sold his body for her. The whole story turn around the suffering of Loki and all his life was full of suffering, even the ending will be bad for him.

Most of the best characters are sub characters and dont appear a lot or get tragic endings

Okay, so I always thought this will be similar to other manga where romance is the main thing. The twist is the Arcana power and later as the story progressed, there's a question about life, future and others. It's deeper than its surface or how it sounds in the summary so I highly recommend it. There are times when it's a bit slow, where romance is not the main thing but it has a potential to develop into an amazing one. So read on.

Long overdue glowing review

I can't believe I haven't given a glowing review about this yet.
It's 4:30am, though, so i'll keep it kinda short.
This manga is fantastic. One of the best shoujo I've ever read. In the top 3 at the very least. It blends multiple genres seamlessly. If it was given a seinen label I wouldn't be too surprised. There's only a couple of factors that push it to a more shoujo/josei style.The initial romance is dealt with quickly, which is great as otherwise it'd just be cliched and wouldn't move on for too long. It's got the potential to be an epic fantasy, really. I did not see the events of volume 10 coming haha biggrin

If you're into the genre (namely, fantasy shoujo with an arranged marriage because of a conflict between countries), go for it. Otherwise, it's a miss (at least for me).
The lead couple is okay, I guess. There's nothing heinous about them, but there's nothing special about them either. They fall in love in one chapter, which is kind of annoying but to be expected. Honestly, most, if not all, of the characters are bland and cliche. However, the main issue that I have with it is that the story tries to juggle too many things at once. There's romance between the two leads, the heroine also has supernatural abilities, war is threatening to break between a couple countries, there's a civil rights-y bit with the subhumans, and the royal family sucks. It's just too much, and nothing gets enough spotlight in order to become engaging.
Unfortunately, Reimei no Arcana finds itself in a weird position. It tries to be more than the run of the mill brainless shoujo manga, but it bogs itself down with too much extra stuff. Because of this, the manga doesn't appeal to hardcore shoujo addicts (not enough romance), but it doesn't appeal to readers who're looking for something more than traditional shoujo (not enough substance).

I really like this series. I don't get where some people say it falls flat, though I do agree that the whole bit in Lithuanel is a bit boring. There's too many twists and turns for no reason. And I'm starting to think that there won't be a happy ending for Nakaba and Caesar :-( I hope thats not true..

I kinda agree on the whole arranged marriage thing (though I wouldn't like it in real like) but having the couple picked out already and watching them fall in love with each other is rather nice. And brings a smile to my face when it does happen. They always end up falling hard! The way that Toma sensei expresses the characters is amazing, and I really do like the artwork. Sure the story reminds me of other mangas, but the feel is completely different. One thing I have a problem with is that Nakaba is supposed to be a "strong" character, but I feel she was a lot stronger before she cut her hair. It's like the story of Samson.. Cut your hair and lose all your strength. I like that she kind of returned to herself in chapter 39, but it took so much for that to happen =/

My favorite characters are obviously Nakaba and Caesar because they're just so gosh darn cute together. And I don't know if it's just me, but I didn't really find him mean in the beginning. Boys always bully the girls they like haha At first I liked Loki, but I have to agree that there is something a little shady about him. I understand the whole loving Nakaba thing, but even that I find creepy since he did raise her. He should see her as a daughter or at least a younger sister smh

I think the whole reason for Nakaba and Caesar separating is bogus (rolls eyes) I mean really?!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I understand that Caesar had to leave her because she had things that she must finish and he had to become king so he could be with her the way he wants, but I still don't like it. I also understand that Nakaba HAD to marry that idiot Adel so she could become queen and take over and be prepared for when Caesar becomes king, but still. I also understand that Caesar had to marry Louise to get the army on his side and make his ascension to the throne that much easier, but why?!


I really hope that this won't go on forever and a day like Goong. I really want to know how it'll end really soon. With this time skip that I hear is supposed to happen, I hope it shows Caesar and Nakaba together again. Tired of crying haha

Really Love It

I am a fan of arranged marriages and all of the cliched stuff that goes with them. The main pairing is decided for you and you get to watch them fall for each other once they get past their staggering differences.
I like the characters and their interactions. I find the hair color prejudice a little odd though. I can go along with it, but it strikes me as weird, anyway. I'm looking forward to how the plot unfolds. Love is important in a romance manga, but I'd rather have some political and social plots working through as well, and this manga has those.

Amazing yet flawed series   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

If I were to decribe Reimei no Arcana, it would be an amazing yet flawed manga. I am absolutely in love with the story and the artwork. I don't know why there are a few people who seem to claim that the art needs more work, but I think it fits the story well. The mangaka draws and writes emotional scenes very well and there are quite a few heartbreaking moments in this manga.

Now for the romance. I am absolutely in love/heartbreak with Caesar and Nakaba. I'm sorry Loki, even though you loved Nakaba first, it's very clear that Nakaba's heart belongs to Caesar and vice-versa. Too bad something happens later on in the series where they separate... and it just crushes my heart. There are way too many feels in this manga! Besides, Loki has always seemed a little bit shady to me. It always looks like he has /some/ kind of ulterior motive.

Anyway, even though Caesar was an ass in the beginning, he becomes someone who I look for in a hero. I believe that he loves Nakaba whole-heartedly and would do ANYTHING for her. Even going so far as to irrevocably commit something that can be labeled tragic in my opinion. She does the same thing as well. In order for change, you must give up something in return.

Overall, I'm really enjoying the story so far. I'm starting to see that this series will go on for quite some time since there are a bunch of unresolved feelings and the rest of the arcana members to be revealed. The reason why I'm claiming that this manga series is flawed is due to the fact that while the story started out really amazing, the later chapters are rather boring. Especially after the whole Akhil/Lithuanel arc. I'm completely clueless after that because there's apparently a time skip after chapter 39.

I really like this, but I feel like this manga deserves a max of 11volumes, its one of those story mangas...It's good but I'm not waiting for it, I'm sick and thred of waiting for the manga I love.

Anyway, this manga's not amazing to me. It's just ok tbh...I just hate Loki, and I feel like I don't know the characters...
