From Manga-Heaven:
Long ago, a devil traversed the world leaving nothing but death in his wake. Eventually the demon was slain by the 10 gods who created the world. As the people began to worship the gods, the gods created 10 swords infused with their power to protect the world from evil and peace dawned upon the world once more...
Mirim is a member of the 10 Pillars Sword Guild and one of its elite earning the title of Crimson and the right to wield one of the swords forged by the Gods. Her companion, Ash Grave, is the devil of legend. Why is a swordswoman with divine power to protect the world paired with the demon that is said to be destroying it? Perhaps there is more to this legend than meets the eye...

Too bland.

Very campy story with horrible, paper thin characters. The main character not only looks but feels like he was created by some of the many talentless hacks at deviantart as he has nothing more than an emo but powerful "supposed" badass but then turns on goofball mode outside of fights.
The girl is designed boring as hell and has a back story so uninteresting that it might as well not exist at all.

Some people have zero eyes for art as some of the past reviews claim the art to be good but it is nothing short of childish, generic and cliched; much like the story.

The story starts off quite well and promises a lot of backstory exploration involving a war against the gods, but the story never quite deals with it. The fact that the main character is referred to as a traitor, tries to redeem himself and the girl that led him down this path isn't with him anymore tells you all you need to know about how shallow the story is.

i hope more of this gets scanlated cause i really like the story and characters, and the art is decent.

assuming the story stayed consistent and didn't take an awful turn like legend of maian did, i'd really like to see how the author decided to solve the various conflicts (who wins, who dies..., etc.). however on the off chance the author pulled a terrible plot twist reminiscent of legend of maian, i'd rather not read any further and keep my positive view of crimson grave instead, because i really regretted reading and becoming emotionally invested in legend of maian, after frustratingly seeing how utterly terrible the plot developed about 50 chapters in

Excellent story plot. (after all the fan-services chapters) It get back on track.
Wonderful art too. (like the other work by the same mangaka.) smile

Overall, great piece of work to read.

Although the romance genre doesnt really show up in this work

Thanks for the new release! The new chapter also gets the plot back on track, after it fumbled around with ecchiness and earning money a while. Neither of which is a bad thing, but I do enjoy the plot. I do wish we'd found out
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the origin of Noe-bou-jou
, but that can wait.

The wandering away from the plot for too long is the only reason I gave it a 9. As the story progresses, if it can stay on track on average, I'll probably increase my rating.

Thanks again!

This is a really good manga to read. It is not like your cliche shounen manga where the main is "a typical high school boy with no special traits". This manga is centered around 2 people and is very nicely drawn and written. The characters so far are very detailed, and it seems like this is going to be a very promising manga. Oh, and the main guy character isnt a perv.

Give it a 10 since i cant think of anything bad about it.

It is a good manga ^^" just so you guys know despite the long span in between releases, we (Manga-Heaven) haven't dropped it o.o

I'm the editor for it and i've just been preoccupied with moving from another country so its been stunted a little biggrin thanks for understanding

This manga looks to be very promising, good action, a little ecchi, and its pretty funny too. The plot is also rather interesting, not totally unique, but its almost impossible to get that now. I definitely look forward to more releases.

Ill give it a 9 for now, since I think its a pretty good opening chapter.
