From JanimeS:

The world of Siesta is set in fantasy Europe where there are people called bullet users who were discriminated against badly for reasons unknown to readers as of volume 1.
The discrimination has gotten much weaker due to Grande Corp's efforts to wipe out the decades-old pirate faction with the help of Bulletron, a battle suit designed exclusively for bullet users.

The story begins as the protagonist Dia Canto tells you a little bit about herself: how she became an orphan, how she met her foster family, and how she is very much in love with her step brother, Loe. However, her affection toward Loe is brutally crushed before it would even bear fruit and she goes out to vent her sadness. This is when she encounters Cid Leon, who she would ultimately be paid to "protect".

Very Good

Is it wrong to admit that this is one of the very few manhwa whose art didn't turn me off?? I loved it. The story is good and the art isn't like most manhwa I've seen. It totally looks manga-ish. That sounds so wrong and discriminatory but I can't help it.

There are mangas with horrible art and sometimes it does turn me off but somehow it's different. It feels different. The art I've seen in manhwa isn't ugly per se but you know and feel the difference. I've tried reading manhwa but the art usually turns me off even though the story is so freaking interesting. It's also hard to get used to reading left to right, but I'm just nitpicking...anyways

But this...this manhwa is really good. The art and the story is great! I love it! It has totally made me rethink reading only manga. It's because I've been traumatized in the past where I come across manhwas with gorgeous covers and interesting story lines but then I start then it just goes down hill from there. Whatever, read this manga! It's made a convert out of me.

She's an orphan sent to an academy and she has the power to take on the abilities of others. She also takes care of a difficult guy with strong powers and questionable morals. His twin brother even reminds me of Ruka.

I'm reserving judgement, though. It might be good.

Not the best, but still awesome! ^^

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the story idea! It's FANTASTIC.
C: I Also LOVE how this story is NOT predictable! It makes it so refreshing! ^^

First off
*CHARACTERS ARE COOL! (They are well developed C: I like the leads, 2 )
*The actual flow of the story is OK
This is why it's not the best. It's still better than otehr mangas, but it does get a bit confusing at times. Just
Those scans are BAD.
The translations aren't correct, so you get really confused.
That's what happened to me =.=''

It's a good manga c:
Great for a time filler, and even more!

So far.. with only two volumes released and volume 3 still on progress, i have my expectation on this manhwa.
The first volume fails me, but I continue my reading cause I like the arts! (especially the color ones). Then the 2nd volume turns out to have a good story development. I like the heroine, she has a strong heart and a thoughtful character. Somehow.. The heroine's ability reminds me of Peter Petrelli's (Heroes). Cool~
And for anyone who complained about poor translations, ... @Avatarbriman; imagine how much effort a person to do everything by herself. Buying the books, ripping them, scanning, translating, editing many titles all by herself, and the most important thing is her consistency in release frequencies. I take my hat off~
But to be fair, even i, a non-english native speaker, realized there's a lot of mistakes in the translations. So please be more careful on this beautiful manhwa~~

This manwha looks very promising! I love the story... and I hope it will continue its good start. Dia Canto is a very likable character, and Cid for me is appealing in his own way. (I love his exaggerated character as some of you guys call it)... I highly recommend this smile

It's a very good manwha. Admittedly, some parts were confusing and hard to understand but overall I give it a high rating. The main female lead is not the typical shoujo personality. I doubt the romance will be either. The supernatural elements is a bonus too.

This manga is purely awesome (at least for now)! Unique plot and cool art! The heroine also isn't your typical crybaby dimwit and the guy isn't the "flawless prince". The only thing I don't like about the manhwa is that it is too difficult to find...

This series is fairly decent but is ruined due to the poor quality of the translation, the series is in firm need of a proofreader as the sentences are filled with mistakes that detract from the story being told.

It has a really interesting set up, and I like how the author subtly introduced some mystery to the heroine's capabilities. Not to mention that the heroine herself is interesting--calm and humble, but with surprising depths. Her feelings for Loe and about her family really drew me in and made me feel invested in the story and want to know what would happen to her in the future. Some of my growing interest was ruined, however, by the other characters--especially Cid Leon, with his frustrating behavior that is just too over-dramatic, and the weird school league, which also is over-dramatic... The further the story goes along I feel like it gets increasingly ridiculous. I have a feeling that a lot of this manhwa will have battles and super-awesome super-super powered people in the future, which isn't really my thing. But it's probably someone else's.
It's still probably too early to tell, but it does have a pretty good beginning. It might not live up to its potential, but I guess you should judge that for yourself.

I've only read volume one, so I can't actually rave about the series as a whole. BUT so far I'm impressed and in love. The art is beautiful. It has it's own uniqueness. Especially with the interesting world the artist has created. She really draws it nicely.

Thankfully the main isn't a sap. She's not weak (as of now) and I find her interesting, which is always a plus in my book. I mean, no one wants to read about the same kind of heroine story after story, right?

The story itself is enough to keep me anchored. Magic abilities called bullets with rankings? Pretty freakin' cool. I'm never a fan of boarding schools, but that usually has to revolve around the characters and the reason why the main is there in the first place. But usually you don't read about a girl being payed to be a body guard to a resisting guy, who probably doesn't need guarding.

Anyways volume one is just sets up for the looming plot. Settings, characters, themes, background. And it was done well. Plus if you loved Moon Boy (Monday Boy) the other work Lee Young-You did a few years back, you'll love Siesta.
