It's bittersweet and wonderfully poetic. The story is also accompanied by beautiful visual symbolism: the scene where she is literally running on money; the house of the "big headed" family which is unnecessarily gaudy with massive diamond and all, yet simultaneously fragile (literally "2 dimensional" and flat) compared to the surrounding houses. I agree with another reviewer here saying the plot is essentially the modern day Peter Pan. It does have quite a bit of angst associated with it, a dark, despairing mood and is a tad melodramatic (only for my tastes though), but you're really missing out if you don't read his masterpiece at least once. It's surprisingly complex.

This manhwa is truly a masterpiece! an adult dont want to become an adult. The real world sure is rough, I'm too scare to step out of my dream land.
Even though he's not real magician, even though other people think he's psycho, to me, bringing dream to the girl, helping the boy release the storm inside him, making that boy not go to the same path as him, to me, he is the REAL magician!
.
We learn as hell to get into a uni, run everywhere to get a job, struggle everyday to live, get married when you reach a certain age, socialize with the society, to be obsessed by everyone's expectation ... Where in the world that you are yourself?
The moment when the boy's neck become normal, the time he break the spell that his parents cast on him, he bravely fighting for the freedom that R makes him realize, I'm about to cry. I don't have courage as him, I abandoned my dream to follow the path that my parents made up for me. But now I'm starting again, though nobody is on my side but i'm not give up. This manhwa has the same feeling of me!

.
Annarasumanara has a deep significance to me.
The art is beautiful! It'd be perfect if author mentioned more about R after that.

Before you know it this korean webtoon will have wormed its way magically into your heart. It has a lot of charm, and I'm not even talking about the amazing characters yet. The paneling is creative but meaningful! It is structured in a way that enhances the storytelling. The message that the manga is trying to convey is simple yet at the same time powerful. To be a functioning adult in society do you need to cast away all your childishness? In other words, is it still okay to have fun? To be silly? Even if that's not what society expects from you. Heartwarming and mysterious.

Its a little sad. A little belief. A little crazy. A little hope, and a lot of magic. This has an sad feeling to it. The ending could have been better but other than the feeling of incompleteness it was sad. I cried.

I feel like there were a lot of hidden meaning in this manhwa. Its is indeed very deep and leaves you with kind of a sad feeling but it was probably one of the best things I've read so far. I haven't read anything like this before. Its take on the real world is really on point and you don't get to see that in a lot of stories. The art was fabulous I mean REALLY, it was so weird and out of the norm I loved it. I would recommend the to everyone. I believe everyone at some point in their lives can relate to this story and the feelings behind it.

I feel there was something left unanswered:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
is he still crazy? I feel like some part of him is still normal, but not quite? Makes me confused. Would he ever be able to go back into society again?
Leaves you wondering. Nevertheless, a worthwhile read.

The art was really different; an art that uses many different art styles to convey a message that anyone would get. It a story that would make you cry, since it relates to life!! A perfect story to read when you have some time and you don't know what to do with it. But in the end you'll believe in a magic never told before.

This webtoon was the first series ever to make me cry because I realized I was stuck in a similar situation as these characters who don't have the magic in their lives. It was the one story that made me say, "If only I can meet a magician like that." (it gave me hope too). I think many people feel the same as I do.

This manga tackles the question that everyone asks at some point in their lives: Are we really living? Do we believe in the magic of living as who we truly wish to be? Are we happy? Are we free? is our world a world of color, or has it been stagnated by reluctance and fear? ... etc.

Even now, I think I'm still in awe with this series. Kudos to the author. If there is one series that reached the depth of my soul, Annarasumanara is the one.

P.s. This story also manages to be magical with its refreshing art style and heavy symbolism.

Although it's understandable that the basis of the story may make some people judge that this manhwa is another one filled with cliches, as far as the execution goes, cliche is definitely not it. This story is not fantasy nor romance (even though it's tagged as so, and implied countless times within the story) - it is a flat out coming of age tale that really applies itself to reality, and young adults currently experiencing coming of age is the targeted audience. Let's review based on this:

The main characters are both dynamic and round, showing various positive and negative qualities on top of gradual development. Side characters lack growth, but it is not a story long enough to afford descriptive personalities for the non-essential figures.

Art is without a doubt top notch - it may seem plain, but there is a lot of thought put into each scene. 3D and 2D art are manipulatively entwined together to make not only beautiful images, but also meaningful representations. In example, the fact that almost every location is black and white except certain scenes involving the fairgrounds helps exemplify the overall theme of childlike fantasies vs. reality. 3D art and color is used sparingly as a storytelling device instead of simple illustrations.

Annarasumanara's story, if summed up, is plain and without a doubt overdone. However, one thing Annarasumanara manages to do is not succumb to the expectations of the average shoujo reader. The tale doesn't stray off the path of reality at any point (our characters may, but the tale itself definitely stays true to reality), therefore the ending is only expected to be the most fitting. The messages the author tries to deliver are printed onto the page, which is perfect for a tale like this. If meanings were any more vague, the lessons would have been lost among the pretty images and cute magic tricks. The pacing of storytelling is comfortable, and nothing but. Annarasumanara's beginning, middle, and end never changes its direction from the goal, and it succeeds in taking the reader on a rather magical journey.

Magic isn't the star of the story - it is a story which uses magic to let the reader realize the importance of reality, and how important it is to grab onto other beliefs which may stray from the norm. Do not be disappointed when the ending turns out not to be what you may have in mind, the goal of this story is to show how one may hold a childlike passion while living "successfully" in the real world. As depicted, Il-Deung's daily life is how many children live in many Asian countries - delirious with pressure to do well in school. Irresponsible parents aren't unheard of either. Annarasumanara is depressingly realistic, whilst being so magically wondrous. A great read for young adults.
