Description
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.

One of the best current manhwa... even if not available

What a pity ... one of the best current manhwa is not currently available for sale ! Watch out for fights depicted : they 're REALLY awesome! And do no expect the usual stuff about love , friendship etc... even if it's shonen , you must be aware that the 3 friends are cold blood killers and that they can carry out some very cruel tricks to win.

If you must read 3 mahnwas
- Priest
- Threads of Time
-and Ares
(forget Island this a bragging and overrated crap )

- fantastic character design : this spidery drawing is quite unique and depicts perfectly the youngness of the protagonists. It can easily turns you away if you lack of mind openness but it kicks ass! it fits the manhwa in the same way than the style of Priest fits this tough and hard story of curse and farwest.
- the BEST fights you can see in shonen : very imaginative and not encroached by some stupid ultimate technique (who said naruto...) : they don't talk they FIGHT ! and i never see a fight which reminds me a previous one .
If you like Mugen style in Cowboy Bebop you'll love Ares and Cygnus way of fighting.
- a developping plot : on the beginning it clearly was not the main asset of the manga but now many blackholes around characters have appeared arousing some interrogation .
It's a bit in the wake of Berserk golden age band of the hawk and its brotherhood with the upcoming of the breakup of the two main character .
- interesting character especially Micheal , a twisted bastard and yet one of the closest friend of the hero . They're all loosely based on mythological characters and they gain some depth from it .
- To wrap up all those thing the global feeling is very surprising for a shonen : some things which are depicted in the manhwa are clearly NOT the kind of things you'll expect . The heroes are cold blood killers and yet children , the sourness and biterness of their aging opponent is easily perceived . This mix between cruelty and innocence is astonishing.

Judging from 2 volumes worth of reading, it's only a decent manga. The art kinda blows. But the fights are kind of cool once you get into them a bit...

But the poor art brings it down a couple of notches.

edit: After reading it a bit further I must say that it's better than I thought initially. Takes a while to get into it but after 12 volumes it's pretty good.

Don't see how anyone could rate it a 10 though. 10 should be reserved for the legendary mangas... This ain't one of them.

Not very original in terms of characters or plot, but well done and certainly an enjoyable read. While not perfect its fairer to give this manwha a full 10 or definitely nothing below a 9.
