In a world filled with demons and magic, the people who can utilize said magic are called magicians. Rood, secretly being a strong magician, is sent on an undercover mission to a famous magic school to protect a Duke's son from bullying. But as Rood involves himself more with the school, it turns out much deeper things are happening with the school, students, and Rood himself.


I absolutely love this series and I binged it in a day last summer. The art is gorgeous (trust me, the beginning art does NOT look like the ending art AT ALL) and its very fun. But in no way shape or form is this a great series that deserves a 10 star rating. There are many flaws. I'll cover the strengths and weaknesses in these points.

+ Interesting, captivating story
+ Decent characters, none are too annoying. Lidusis can get annoying but he's the only one
+ Gorgeous art
+ Action-filled, consistent plot
+ Did I say GORGEOUS ART yet?
+ MC is pretty freaking awesome. I'd use the cussword for awesome if it were allowed, he's that awesome.
+ Overall very fun to read
+/- Very long, over 218 chapters as of now

- Unsurprising plot twists
- Unoriginal side characters
- Unoriginal backstories (except for Lanoste. His current arc as of ch. 219 is pretty awesome)
- Generic magician story
- Side characters are OBLIVIOUS to MC. "Clark Kent can't possibly be superman" type oblivious.
- Series LOVES to beat around the bush
- MC has serious plot armor
- Very few important females (I can think of only two that influence the story compared to 15 men)
- Small fandom/following

I really only recommend this series if you need a fun, lighthearted and easy read to take your mind off things. If you are looking for a deep story outta this, go fish, my friend.

@serobins I have no idea what you mean. That only happened to me in the first few chapters, the art becomes better though.

@PZcolo You probably won't read any further so I'll spoil a bit.
"the master is an idiot who uses the most powerful magician in the world as a toy"
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The master is actually Rood's older brother, the reason he says for giving petty missions is to lie low because of crazy dog Shic, the real reason is protectiveness and to keep him out of sight of the tower at all cost.

"one of the professor in the school attacks his students with killing intent in plain view"
Stop taking shonen seriously, they are always blown out of proportion when it comes to that stuff (do I have to mention Vegeta?). Same with Shic, all of his "I'll kill you"'s are just his way of trash talking during battle.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Shic is a really important person, which is why he's still free even though he's dangerous. And I mean like top of their world important.

Also, for all intents and purposes Black Haze happens in another world which has different rules? Plus, it's a comedy? There are no jokes, most of the comedic moments are from the well drawn expressions and "oops, damn!" situations. True, there is way better out there if you want a deep and earnest plot, but Black Haze never claimed to be something it isn't. "Tragedy" might be a bit misleading.

Ignore all the comments below dissing this webtoon. One person mentioned that this was forced and unrealistic but they never reached the backstory of the main characters and probably have no idea who The King is and schicmons backstory to why he acts like and ass. This webtoon is very interesting don't judge by the comments are for yourself why this is a popular webtoon.

I gave up on this because I can't tell the characters apart the way they are drawn. At first, when there were only a few characters and the plot was simple, it didn't matter, but now I have no clue what's going on. It's like if somebody made a sitcom and cast the same person in every role.

really agree with sami_chan- was hesitant to pick this up at first because i thumbed through the comments, and saw some call it 'slow-moving' - such plots really kill off whatever interest i have at first. but black haze is not slow moving at all. i'd say the pace is just right- it doesn't raise several plot twists and have them unaddressed until like 100 chapters later like some other stories, but usually resolve them within a suitable time frame such that everything stays fresh in your memory. yet there are enough twists to keep you on your toes. lots of feel good moments that i really enjoy in shounen manga too, without making the protag seem boring or overpowered... all the things i want in a fantasy manga can be checked against here. i'd place it on almost the same level as tower of god, among fantasy webtoons! and as i'd consider myself a quite experienced in the genre, do give it a shot if you're a fantasy addict too smile

Mediocre and forced

Get tired of everyone in this manhwa doing whatever they want and how everyone seams to be ok with it, the master is an idiot who uses the most powerful magician in the world as a toy, his rival is a psychopath who should be hanged that steals the magic-stone he's supposed to protect it and destroys the auction house (killing many probably), the students cause hell of a ruckus and all they get is a lenient warning, one of the professor in the school attacks his students with killing intent in plain view, the other teacher is even worse but I won't spoil it... it goes on and on, give it a break, be consecuent.
Characters actions make no sense
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Shic is a lunatic, completely deranged, he goes on killing rampages yet somehow he's employed with a prestigious magic asosiation and is free to roam, and even gets sent to a school to put kids in danger at his leisure. Blow has had several chances to kill him and just doesn't, same for Lispen, why doesn't he kill Lispen? it would be freaking easy for him yet he ignores him for no good reason
Everything is so forced, so unnatural, the characters just don't feel real and the story which is surprisingly somewhat interesting is wasted when to move forward all it does is drag from one forced action and situation to another.
Also, I don't like the comedy, it seams acting aloof and like an idiot is funny for the author, all the relief chars act like that.

I started this series because I was looking for full color/fantasy, and it has become one of my favorites. The plot is interesting, unexplained things are explained later, and the characters are engaging with interesting pasts that are later revealed. It also doesn't fall into the trope of giving the magicians levels, and while they do have ranks, it is not a main focus of the plot and doesn't use game elements(that I noticed).

So I started reading this years ago. I think from pretty much the beginning. And at first it's this quite simple story, easy to follow, likable characters, cool action. I really didn't know what about it I liked so much as a lot of things were left unexplained and well many things were just plain confusing.

There are a lot of works where unexplained things are left unexplained, where with time you only get more questions and no answers. Well I was sure this would be one of those but somehow it's so enjoyable to read that I didn't care. And then as time went on I'm being proved wrong, a very pleasant surprise. Things are being explained and nothing happens quite randomly, after rereading I found that pretty much all twists and plot lines were foreshadowed. So keep your eyes open and enjoy this work! It must be one of my favorites by now. But yes, do keep your eyes open and use your brain as many things aren't said out and you have to figure them out on your own, yet even if you don't it's an enjoyable read so don't be discouraged!

This story is slow paced because it's meant to be. Period. (As most webcomics are). If you're not into that, then you might want to look elsewhere...which would mean you would miss out on this great manhwa. The main character, Rood, is refreshing in that he is strong and smart (and cute) and yet he's kind and innocent. He's hot-headed at times, but in a cool, funny way (like pushing someone off a balcony lol) and not in an annoying, cliche shounen way. The other characters all have personalities of their own, and I honestly don't dislike a single one (rare for me). There is a mystery element to this story as well, which I love. (Many of the questions have been answered in recent chapters, though there are still some left). For those saying it's light hearted haven't read the recent chapters: my heart actually hurt reading Rood and Kiel's past.
I should also mention how well written this is: the characters come alive, the plot is engaging a great combination of mystery, drama, comedy and action. It definately doesn't feel like a stereotypical shounen story, and for that I'm grateful to have picked this up.
