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.

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 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.

one of my favs...i love the artwork and the plot is also intereting
the heorine is also strong and can totally kick but
the characters are also pretty amusing...even though their personalities are polar opposites they also fit well together somehow
the element of magic in this series is also really good...i love how they include it

too bad that it's licensed though...i really wanted to see what would happen next..

i totally recommend it

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 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!

This manga is amazing!! Not only is it funny it has action, romane, and it can even teach you things sometimes. I just love Rahzel, she's so funny.

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!)
