Epic does not even begin to describe this masterpiece

I love this series and it is currently on my "MUST PICK UP JAPANESE COPIES" list. I also currently have 2 volumes of the direct sequel Orfina SAGA.

I would say that Orfina is one of those epic war stories with immense character endearment and subsequently immense character ATTRITION. If anyone has been reading Tennouji's works (including Eden's Bowy), they'll find out that character attrition rates in Tennouji's works tend to be very high. The occasional ecchi (like pantyshots or brief nudity) scenes really only serve to break up the tense drama when slapstick humour wouldn't work.

The story is deep and it covers the breadth of Orfina's emotions, strategic deliberations, and combat/information prowess. I really don't know how else I could describe this series because absolute justice simply does not exist in this series in much the same way that it does not exist in Eden's Bowy.

Classic quality

Excellent manga, judging by volume 1. One of those classic fantasy/adventure stories, with political intrigue, plenty of action, and characters you might actually care about. For some reason, perhaps due to the art, it calls to mind Escaflowne. Here's hoping more of this gets scanlated. In any case, download and enjoy!
