Instant shounen classic with its flaws and great moments

I'm surprised by so little attention was given to this manga (I'm astounded actually)! I just finished it because scanlation is done and thrilling was my ride.

I have been yearning for a story like this for a while now. I want completed stories like Gash, Inuyasha, Basara and the likes. And it took a while to get here, by chance, discovering this really, really well-told, well-drawn and overall well-made work!
I love how there were only a few moments of cringe and cheese, story and action were swift without over-dramatisation, characters are honestly themselves (somewhat similar to Gash) and very open-minded (I love how civil they are too: if they do something not good - they apologise, if someone do something nice for them - they appreciate, if they make faults or have flaws - gradually but surely they recognise and accept these things for themselves and those they care about and truly see as "friends", and most of all they ask so many questions and when there are questions they have yet a path to, they take their time to digest and move forward.)
I believe this is an exemplary work that has heart, passion and motivation behind that really brings back the great shounen nostalgia: Egypt setting like Yugi-Oh (without the dragging of the final arc), honest feelings and friendship (Gash), adventure driven (Inuyasha) and complicated world and feelings and decisions interwoven by fates and space-time (Inuyasha).

Of course, it is not without its flaws. A word ahead: the ending is bitter-sweet, yet it is an appropriate and well-thought ending.
Most of the stories and characters' backgrounds are pretty holistic. But they might have been a bit further, longer, and more explorative (that's how much potentials Morishita Makoto sensei has). Even the final confrontation, for sure, if you are die-hard classic shounen fans, would be a little bit too... little? But taking into account all the reasonings along the way, I'm still giving it a rosy, positive, huge RECOMMENDATION!

I truly hope the author was able to completely tell her story here. (We all know how mangas got chopped before being completed with rush ending because "don't sell well" reason right? I hope this wasn't the case although it's mad how this work is not popular! First of all: the ART - goodness me - so well-drawn! I was dumb struck that the quality persist throughout, through it all!

Maybe because it wasn't made into an anime? Argh! Make an anime for this! Such a gem!

Still, take and enjoy your time with this 😀
