A powerful sorceress, Felicia Rand Philistin, once tried to conquer the nation of Shurian.

This isn't really a spoiler per-say, but It's an indication of when it goes into Arc 2, which will definitely split the readers into lovers or haters of the series.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If you hate cliche shounen series, SKIM through UNTIL Ch. 58.
If you hate total 180° Time skip plot twists, STOP reading AFTER you finish Ch. 57.

Love it has everything a Shounen lover wants good action, weak to strong theme, good romance, and part 2 jst blows the mind. I mean shoot this has got to be the best shounen/Seinen(shifts to this in part 2) out there. but to bad the releases are slow

You guys should really go away and rage somewhere else with, "its the same as his other series, its cliche" Instead of complaining go read something else or actually leave a review for this series.

The point of this is, if you like IM Dal-Young's series then you will also love this one.
Sure the character might start off weak but he had his moments when his true power comes to the surface, which we will most likely see more of in the new Arc. Afterall the series is called "Legend of Maian" i agree the first part was sad and really didnt see it coming.

A few characters do kind of blend in so you dont get attached to them but i believe the story was mainly focused on maian as he was powerless and gaining experience in the world.

Who would of thought huh? Seriously this guy can't make a likeable male main character to save his life if he had to. The main character in this one is just like the ones in ALL of his other works, a righteous coward and a mega douchebag, the main character is so sicking that he single handled ruins the whole series on top of the other problems that it has. He is also a shounen wet dream without his "secret" powers and bloodline and being able to use hero moments to win anything.

And all of that wrong is just from the main character. The rest of the series is slightly good but all the teammates are undermined so badly that it is hilarious.

All in all this is nothing more than a blatant rip off of Kurohime and a masterpiece of a series known as Slayers. Only thing is it's watered down with crap and shounen cliches and romance written by someone with a single digit IQ.

I can't believe the characters and their motivations; it's as if they say and do the things they say and do because it's required and/or expected of them-- instead of actually meaning it. It's strange. Not exactly generic, but very.. 'as expected' if that makes any sense. Clichéd.

For example, in the Knights' nostalgia, Felicia usually wears a white summer dress and a summer hat, laughing under beach/summer sun. That's a 'stock' memory scene from countless comics/animes/games. Made more jarring when the actual character act nothing like that in the story, and can't be believed to (will) ever act like that.

The story started of kind of weird. The main character, Felix, was gutless and seem to have no redeeming qualities, and he has the hots for his brother wife. However, as the story goes one, the story actually show some good character developments. The story may seem a bit cliche if you have been reading a lot of these shounen manga. However, I'm still interested in the series nonetheless. And as always, the art is crisp and superb. Definitely, worth the read.

oh boy another story where some one is made to do something they don't want to do just because others say its for the greater good, and then later turns out to want to keep on going. oh boy... The start of the story was good but then they just had to make the main characters start to fall in love. The story seems predictable now. It would have better if the author kept the same feeling he had at the beginning, them hating each other would have been better than this.
