A young girl named Rahzel is booted out of her house one day by her father with the instructions to 'see the world.' And so her journey begins. However, she won't be doing it alone... for she befriends a stoic young man named Alzeid seeking revenge for his father's murder.
Alzeid and Rahzel are like oil and water... but even still, they feel strangely drawn to one another. This could be either the result of an underlying attraction -- or their shared powers with magic. And so, the two reluctant allies travel from town to town, using their powers to help the helpless, while discovering their own respective places in the world.

I may be a little late to the game considering most of the posts were from a couple of years ago... but I consider this manga to be one of the best mangas out there- there hasn't been an update to the chapters in over a year. Does anyone know of any sites/scanlators/translators that are currently working on this manga??

Thank you for any future comments!

Don't get me wrong the plot of this manga is awesome and very original, but there's one problem. The characters, sure their lovable and unique but it's like Alzein does all the changing, and not for the better. A crazy strong, stoic guy turns into what? Some childish, demeaned weakling? It's almost to sad for me to read anymore, which is saying something because I've made it to volume 11. This has also made me start to waver on my good opinion of Rehzel who seems to not changed at all (even though she spent six months traveling, so much for life changing adventure, eh?). Well besides my problem with Alzein (don't tell some of you don't have the same problem with his new personality) this is a good manga with a strange plot that connects all the main characters past. Though I had my doubts at the beginning this is a all together great manga (well if you don't have a strange obsession with stoic guys)
So for those of you at the beginning who are having your doubts, keep reading! ( well at least until you like the Alzein at the beginning so much that it's hard when he becomes weak and demeaned!)

Your mean.. Just plain mean. Me, I'm not going to be rude, I love the art, the story, and even the heroine. Alzied does make me a bit on the peevy side.. He has no emotion, the hell is up with that? Btw you really should read the whole thing before you say anything, alsooo Rahzel is beautiful, you must not have eyes, plus she's extremely funny, and Heat is ugly.. Just plain ugly, plus he gets on my nerves, and the whole pedoness going on in here is not my cup of tea. But yes, I do love it. Not enough 2 cry my eyes out when it ends or when no one updates a chapter. (( even though i am angry because no chapter have come out.. for quite some time now )) So.. i'm gonna give it a 9.

What I like the most of this manga is it's turnaround, the story used to focused on Rahzel, but then it slowly get focused on Alzeid, it even became more like a shounen manga

And he's a badass, I love when a protag is a badass. The plot makes them rarely use their full powers, but Alzeid is beyond godly. He can teleport, regenerate, shoot and slash u in the arse, and god knows what else, but the plot is progressing nicely despite his superiority

If u like powerful protag, get this, and also DOGS, the protag is also an undying regenerator, though he can't slash but he surely can shoot u in the arse

So much potentioal, so unique, creative,
work of art that adapts smoothly over the long period of time that the manga's been running for. The new art is gorgeous. The story plot is just a whole new world.

everyone READ. everyone WATCH. i want a nother anime season and so do a lot of other ppl.

I think the manga is pretty god. tHE first few chapters came off a little shaky but once you get farther it get's even more interesting, and the art also stats to progress and become a lot better too. Every single secrets are raveled in each character. It's a very unique manga.

I've only just started reading, so this is just my opinion for now. So far, it's all kinda stupid. The introductory chapters are just awful. Does this mangaka want to attract readers or not, 'cause what the hell is with those first few chapters? If I were to judge this manga by those chapters alone, I'd say this is one suck-ass manga (pardon the language). The dialogue is cheesy, and tries too hard to be witty/funny, which actually makes it all seems even more corny and embarrassing (I rolled my eyes a few times while reading). I hate the heroine, who's annoyingly bratty and ...well, just annoying I guess. She's the one making all the lame-ass, cheesy comments. The art looks like it's drawn by a noob, so it's not attractive or compelling to look at. I just hope later chapters will be better. ...Yes, I'm reading on despite the horrible first impression. Gotta give the manga a chance to grow into itself... who knows...maybe it'll turn out to be better than I thought.

Ok... after a few volumes...I still hate the heroine, and the hero is a stereotypical cold-fish (stoic, emo and zero-personality). Can't bring myself to like this manga. Plotless, pointless...the story's going nowhere. Did I mention that I hate the heroine? All I can say is this girl need to calm herself down. Her over-the-top reactions annoys the hell out of me. She's a spoiled brat who neither likable nor funny. Everytime she opens her mouth, she looks like a fool to me. These characters are unoriginal and lifeless. The guy barely shows any emotion, and the girl shows too much. Typical shoujo. Plus... this is gonna sound petty... but Rahzel's the fugliest female character I've seen in a while.

This is one manga that you have to read everything to be able to appreciate, if you haven't liked it from the beginning.

As it kicks off from chapter 1, every subsequent chapter seems to be a different adventure. Meeting new people, experiencing new happenings. That's what you will think, until you reach near volume 8 probably. One will start to realise that many past events actually has a significance. We'll have to piece everything together to unravel the plot that links all together.

I'm at volume 10, which ends at a horrible cliffhanger leaving me desperate for the next. The story at this point is my favourite.

The art is messy at times though, personally I tend to skip some panels that are too cluttered. But otherwise, a good read, though not the usual shoujo we see!

I couldn't get into this at all. I found Rahzel to be annoying and Alzeido's thought processes didn't make any sense. For example, why he decides to tell some random girl he's known for under an hour, who makes him lose his priceless gun, his story and about his revenge and whatnot is ridiculous. The art bothered me too. It seemed really great and interesting, but it turned out to be highly disappointing, which sucked, because the plot sounded cool.
