The story takes place in an era similar to that of ancient Rome in a country called Chronos. It follows a group known as the Temple Mercenaries. In particular, the manhwa is about Ares, Michael and Baroona, three young warriors with mysterious pasts and surpassing skills...

The manhwa is notable for its subtle use of anachronistic elements (Ares' shoes are similar to that of classic Adidas), as well as very dynamic and fluid action sequences.

This was so coool! For a manga with a Roman theme to it, I kind of pictured the wars like that but really Ryu Keum Cheol did an amazing job with all the plots and all those to die for moments.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Mikael's death and his treasures was one of the best moments :'
People say the art is bad because it looks sketchy or whatever, but I really like the art it makes Ares, Baroona, and Mikael look adorable...even though their killling people. lol Ares became the commander anyways. I really like his perrsonality throughtouthte whole series, goofy but serious at the crucial times. Barooon was just the cool guy, like how Mikael was in the beginning. Anywaysss, this was aweeeesome and def recommendation biggrin

The art isn't anything to rave about but the plot is!

The events leading up to the major conflicts were well developed and the importance of each character was really stressed. Its not hard to fall in love with the characters and be absorbed into their struggles. The main plot was a pretty big hurdle but when it was wrapped up at the end you really felt like this was going to be a manhaw that left an impression.

Honestly one of the best mangas/manhwas I've ever read. The story is great, concise, it knows what it wants to accomplish and it does it ever so eloquently.

I know some people get turned off by the art, but give it time. The story is the real gem of this manhwa.

Having following it for years.. i'm a bit saddened to have finally put it on my complete list...

LOVEEEED IT! And i don't say that for many mangas. The art is a little sloppy but it's not as bad as everyone says it is. The characters are amazing and you really feel for them. This manga really left an impression on me.

However it's just at such a crucial and confusing point right now that lacking updates is unforgivable sad Not a single one since June.

Worth a read though, very beautiful art portraying fluid fighting.

IS VERY NICE! (borat thumbs up)

This manga seems to resonate well with some and not at all with others. I was the latter. Maybe it was because I walked in with high expectations, or at least with the idea that it would be slightly similar to others of the same genre, but I was sorely disappointed.
It definitely started off well; battling to gain a spot in a well-regarded guild and it just so happens that three youngsters completely defy the expectations of everyone due to their unlikely skill and hidden talent. But the story that unravels after that is completely awful. At least, that's what I believe. Everything that occurred afterwards was out of place or unnecessary.
Maybe I wanted to see the trio hanging out as friends, having good times and making great memories before the big plot twist. I was hoping for Ares to somehow actually work to get his revenge, and that his actions made sense. Read the other comments to get a better understanding and explanations to the (VERY MANY) flaws in the manwha.
Throughout the entire manwha I was wishing for it redeem itself. That I wouldn't be dreading, no, forcing myself to flip the pages in hopes that it would turn out better. But it didn't and it was simply a disaster to read. I barely enjoyed this, and the only time I did like it was at the beginning; otherwise, it was completely boring the entire time.

this was a great manga! it portrayed war really well, had great emotional moments, a whole casts of good characters so it was easy to get into it even if you don't love the main character. I really liked how both "good" and "evil" people were characterized, so even when villains died, i was sad
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
like when esteban's backstory was given right after he and danny died, or when michael killed cygnus
. For a shounen manga, it didn't stray away from violence killing, and didn't make the main characters heroes. If you like plot/character heavy, more realistic mangas read this!

This manhwa has a rather unusual art style, which may put some off. If you can get used to the art, and even enjoy it, then you will find a story with a rich plot, full of emotion, deceit, and wartime strategies. The battle scenes are truly epic, and many of the soldiers are introduced to the reader on a personal level, bringing these battles to a level accessible by anyone. The characters may seem undeveloped at first, but become well fleshed-out as the story progresses. This is an amazing story.

If your looking for a manhwa/manga that is unique and is filled with adventure, action, and bromance, you need to pick this up. Trust me I've read One Piece, and Berserk, I know what I'm talking about.
