Princess Nakaba of Senan is forced to marry Prince Caesar of the enemy country Belquat, tantamount to becoming a hostage.

The art can be lacking in many places in this series. Also seems to be some trend with shoujo to make the dialogue as hard to follow as possible, which leaves plot holes and questions, though that could also be the fault of the translators. Overall it could have been better.

This is definitely one of the more interesting plots out there and it always keeps you on your toes because there's always something happening. I do admit, some parts are pretty predictable but there was just such a good balance of romance, mystery, fantasy and especially adventure. There are so many twists that get you hooked and yeah, i definitely had a lot of "WHHAAAAATTT?!" moments all the way to the last chapter of the manga. I definitely loved Nakaba because she's strong but also because she has a weak side that she's aware of and still strives to overcome it and grow. The romance was pretty good too! Although their relationship was pretty predictable, it was nevertheless full of support, love, trust and strength.

The Ending:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Damnit! I knew Loki was going to die! I knew it right from the start but I chose not to believe it because fuck, can't everyone just live for once?! Anyways, the ending was alright. It definitely left me with a big "WTF!!" reaction and all but I couldn't stop thinking about poor Loki. He sacrificed so much only to be alone. Not to mention the ending was a little confusing like why did he take the throne from her only to die and give it back? Anyway i just wish the mangaka didn't kill him off just because Nakaba chose Caesar.

The ending i guess was necessary because everything just made sense after that and wrapped it up but yeah......

and I give it a 9/10! Pleaseeeee give it a try, the adventure is too good to pass.

I just finished this manga in under 3 days and it is now one of my very favorites. The plot and character developments have so many unexpected twists and turns that it kept me at the edge of my seat. The end of almost every chapter left me desperate to know what happens next. The political aspect was at the forefront of the manga, and the romance was there, but not as much as a typical shoujo. Don't get me wrong, it is a major emotional roller coaster. One minute, laughing, the next crying, the next saying "aww". If you are looking for a well-thought-out manga with a bit of everything (love, politics, fight scenes) Reimei no Arcana is probably for you. Lastly, I LOVED the art. Toma has a talent for facial expressions. With minor details, the expressions on her characters can deal quite the emotional wallop!

.......I hated Nakaba. I really disliked her personality. Nakaba and Caesar coming to love each other was very predictable, and at times I wanted to drop the manga. Some characters are likeable, and the art is above average. Nakaba's ability - Time's Arcana is interesting at first but then you lose interest in it. Honestly I wouldn't say that the MC is a "Strong Female Lead." The only areas in the manga I still remember clearly is the tragedy. The rest is blurred and the characters are pretty forgettable.

I'd initially started reading Reimei no Arcana around two years ago, back when I loved shoujo. Since I don't like reading ongoing series due to the suspense (and forgetting the plot), I decided to leave it and come back when it was finished.

Now, finished it is, and I'm rather happy with how the story turned out. All I really wanted was Nakaba to be happy-especially with Caesar.

While I have to agree that certain parts of the last few chapters seemed rushed, ultimately the last twist was something I never suspected. It was sad, but it made everything make sense. Actually, I might even go so far as to say the ending is one of my favourite parts of the series.

Plus, Toma Rei's art is amazing ^^

Well, I have been following this For.Ever. The ending was decent. It wasn't spectacular or anything. I wasn't disappointed by the end though, which is great. Poor Loki....I rather liked him quite a bit. Also that very last panel.... Nakaba. O.O Her face expression is like "how did this happen?" ;p

I had high expectations for this manga since my friends said it was pretty good. At first, I thought that this was an amazing manga. I really liked the art, the plot, and the characters, however I dont know if it was just me but the "tempo" of the plot changed after chapter 45. I found that it was rushed after that point and was done half-assed confusing me for a while....well thats just me anyway...BUT dont get me wrong, I did like the ending!

I liked this manga at first but as it went on it got totally dull. The characters' personnality change a bit drastically and the romance is dragged on and becomes a bit heavy. The main female character was really egoistical and annoyed me a lot by her aloofness and weak personnality.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The thing that made this manga unenjoyable was the fact that the main(forgot her name) realised how she was hurting that poor Loki and cried etc but yet she continued to let him suffer. I didnt like how unconscious and egoist she is about him who sold his body for her. The whole story turn around the suffering of Loki and all his life was full of suffering, even the ending will be bad for him.

Most of the best characters are sub characters and dont appear a lot or get tragic endings

Okay, so I always thought this will be similar to other manga where romance is the main thing. The twist is the Arcana power and later as the story progressed, there's a question about life, future and others. It's deeper than its surface or how it sounds in the summary so I highly recommend it. There are times when it's a bit slow, where romance is not the main thing but it has a potential to develop into an amazing one. So read on.

I can't believe I haven't given a glowing review about this yet.
It's 4:30am, though, so i'll keep it kinda short.
This manga is fantastic. One of the best shoujo I've ever read. In the top 3 at the very least. It blends multiple genres seamlessly. If it was given a seinen label I wouldn't be too surprised. There's only a couple of factors that push it to a more shoujo/josei style.The initial romance is dealt with quickly, which is great as otherwise it'd just be cliched and wouldn't move on for too long. It's got the potential to be an epic fantasy, really. I did not see the events of volume 10 coming haha biggrin
