A young boy is saved by a mysterious gunfighter who uses magical bullets. She is the greatest magician in the world but disappears shortly after saving him. Having fallen in love with her, he trains to become a gun fighter and ten years later, his search comes to an end but his adventure has just begun. Kurohime is a buxom witch with the power to control magical guns. She once made the mistake of challenging the gods and was cursed for her foolishness!

This was one of my favorites until I hit the arc where time travel came into place.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I felt almost betrayed by the author. Once time travel started happening the author was basically like, "Remember everything you JUST read? Well it was pretty much pointless and misleading. You know that main character? Yeah, well not only is he dead but he really isn't Zero."


The plot becomes increasingly hard to follow to the point where you have to wonder what the heck happened to the author. Its like he had a clear idea at the beginning then went through a lobotomy and picked it back up.

Overall a good read until the aforementioned arc.

Almost awesome...

This manga started out as one of the best things I had ever read. The first ark was amazing and the beginning of the second ark was still great. But then all of a sudden the story just starts to take a dive once they get to time travel. It's almost like someone else entirely wrote it. If I had known the second arc would've ended like that I'd have just stuck with the first arc. I do suggest reading it, but well just don't expect much from the end.

like most guys say here after the awesome first ark it becomes total nonsense. its turns into one of those crazy Manhwas that has some crazy and twisted storyline (non sexually ofcorse, dont worry its not that f ed up lol) .

p.s loved the male lead in first ark, zero is the best character in manga eva

I do agreed that that the story is a bit "fail" in the end. (you may say the author just rush to finish it)
But the quality of the images that was improving every chapters make this manga work more than 6/10.
I would give it 7.5/10.
But i 'm very attach to the characters (I must say Zero = one of the best characters of manga's world)
Personalty i like this manga so i give it 10/10.

Although the first arc of the manga is fantastic, the plot afterwards slowly loses its positive qualities. Around chapter 40, reading the manga was difficult because it was boring and lacking progression of the main plot. The ending could have been better, but it's not.

Nice End but Too Many Plotholes

Truthfully, I didn't expect this manga to end this early since I was waiting on some of the plotholes to be filled up and more action for a least a few more volumes. Anyway, this was a great manga overrall as the story and characters was interesting and very refreshing. My compliments to the author doing a great job with this manga.

It started out boring, but actually a good read

Read the whole 18 vols in 1 sitting. I feel like it dragged on and the ending seemed kinda rushed, but a interesting and unique read indeed.

The romance developed too quickly, having Kurohime find love and becomes all lovely dovey seems questionable. But it is still good and throughout the whole read there are romance, humour, light heartedness, seriousness, development, twists, fantasy, and more. Though the time travelling? Hmmmmm.

A recommended read!

Unexpected...

I've just finished this manga, and what can I say...1st arc and/or 2nd was rather good, but after that it's like I was reading different manga. Well, before picking up this manga, I wasn't expecting a lot from it, I just thought it'd be nice to read something light and easy (shounen, romance, ecchi...;d), but it was beyond my expections and like I mentioned, first few arcs were really good...
And thus comes the sad part...ending or like last quarter of this manga. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say...It's so ridiculous and silly. Feels like somebody forced mangaka to destroy all the effort that's been put into this manga...It's really sad to see yet another manga with
some potential being ruined like that...
I'd give this manga 5, but let's just pretend that it wasn't ruined and all of its potential was used.

The art and story are pretty good, but there are some plot holes and other oddball issues. Don't think too much about the plot after the first arc and just enjoy the story, that's all I can warn without spoilers.

What can i say this story kick ass but ending suck balls first arc was realy cool zero is one of the best characters he is not plain and loves kurohime all the time arc 2 is not bad but it looks like the ending was somehow pushed by author or not cuz it's 17 volumes still i wanted to see more kurohime/zero action together as normal persons not as kurhohime vs zero or smt smile

In the end i give 10 cuz art is realy good Zero is one of the best male characters and kurohime better if u see it yourself smile
