[From Viz]:

Ginta Toramizu is a 14-year-old kid who doesn't have a lot going for him: he's near-sighted, doesn't do well in school, sucks at sports, and to top it off--he's short! But Ginta is a dreamer and has had the same dream 102 times, always in the same fantasy world, where he is a hero blessed with all the abilities he lacks in real life.

Then one day a supernatural figure appears at Ginta's school and summons him to a mysterious and exciting new world! In this strange universe filled with magic and wonder, he is strong, tough, agile--and he can see without his glasses! Thus, Ginta begins a mystical quest in search of the magical items known as "ÄRMS," one of which may have the power to send him home. Joining him on this epic journey are his companion Jack and the valuable living, talking, mustachioed iron-ball weapon known as "Babbo," which everyone wants but, it seems, only Ginta can possess!

Read 2 volumes, but it just didnt urge me to read more. Guess in general this series is good enough to read once, but cant call it a must-read. The art is pretty well done, story and characters are average shounen type

Even if the concept is old, what save this manga are the wonderful characters, weapons and, of course, artwork. The first 2 volumes are boring, but when the group is gathered together everything starts working, and the interaction between the characters is great. MÄR has a bit of secrets too, because of the new chapters you have to remade all your concepts about the Chess no Koma and other characters. The past of some are very interesting, and i'm particulary curious about Nanashi and Phantom. We've been cleare a bit about Alviss, Rolan and Dorothy. Those are the greatest characters so far, and they make me still hooked in MÄR.
