I dunno if it's the translation (probably is...), but I'll say I understood less than 50%. I had no idea who was talking and who they were talking to.

Rolan's personality is rather... strange. Or should I say confusing? I have no idea what his personality is since everything he does keep throwing me off. The fact that understood barely any of the speech may have a role in this as well.

Other than story being utterly ununderstandable, the art is pretty good. I won't go as far as saying it's great, but I liked it. Definitely not one of those horrible ones where you'll find weird anatomies in one glance even if you usually don't recognize them. But I might mention that... it's nothing too special either.

Conclusion is? Very, very, annoying. I have no idea what I'm reading, and yet I can tell that it's completely my type of manga. Which means I have to continue reading unless I want to be bored to hell. And yet... I understand not a thing. And honestly... I liked Rolan at first, but every other chapter he throws me off and changes in the opposite direction. Basically, if you can bear knowing you are in no control whatsoever, you'll be fine reading. Otherwise, you'll find yourself utterly frustrated.

Lots of details have been worked into the plot and there are many factors influencing the characters and even the current events and history of the world. The main characters are somewhat interesting but the Princess is fairly short on abilities and capabilities. I sure hope she evolves soon. She may hold certain Tech skills and some magical skills but we hardly get to see her use them, even though she intends to take part in the fight. She practically leaves most of the planning and fighting to Roland and that girl.

Pacing is very fast and somewhat rushed, characters as well as locations make sudden appearances and are then discarded for now or for good. The main saving grace is the plot, which could prove to be even more interesting as it develops. And then there's the art which is quite good too.

Good for light reading if you don't mind a decent and entertaining plot, with somewhat choppy pacing.

The artwork is cute and the plot is interesting. The story is explained adequately and well paced. The characters are diverse and interesting. The setting is well placed and appropriate for the sequence of events in the story. Overall a very good manga for readers that enjoy romance and fantasy.

I must say, this series rather entertaining. The artwork is clear and good, while the story begins with a good grasp on the reader's attention. I'm looking forward to the chapters to come.
