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

With only her attendant Loki at her side, Nakaba must find a way to cope with her hostile surroundings, her fake marriage...and a mysterious power!

Really Love It

I am a fan of arranged marriages and all of the cliched stuff that goes with them. The main pairing is decided for you and you get to watch them fall for each other once they get past their staggering differences.
I like the characters and their interactions. I find the hair color prejudice a little odd though. I can go along with it, but it strikes me as weird, anyway. I'm looking forward to how the plot unfolds. Love is important in a romance manga, but I'd rather have some political and social plots working through as well, and this manga has those.

Amazing yet flawed series   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

If I were to decribe Reimei no Arcana, it would be an amazing yet flawed manga. I am absolutely in love with the story and the artwork. I don't know why there are a few people who seem to claim that the art needs more work, but I think it fits the story well. The mangaka draws and writes emotional scenes very well and there are quite a few heartbreaking moments in this manga.

Now for the romance. I am absolutely in love/heartbreak with Caesar and Nakaba. I'm sorry Loki, even though you loved Nakaba first, it's very clear that Nakaba's heart belongs to Caesar and vice-versa. Too bad something happens later on in the series where they separate... and it just crushes my heart. There are way too many feels in this manga! Besides, Loki has always seemed a little bit shady to me. It always looks like he has /some/ kind of ulterior motive.

Anyway, even though Caesar was an ass in the beginning, he becomes someone who I look for in a hero. I believe that he loves Nakaba whole-heartedly and would do ANYTHING for her. Even going so far as to irrevocably commit something that can be labeled tragic in my opinion. She does the same thing as well. In order for change, you must give up something in return.

Overall, I'm really enjoying the story so far. I'm starting to see that this series will go on for quite some time since there are a bunch of unresolved feelings and the rest of the arcana members to be revealed. The reason why I'm claiming that this manga series is flawed is due to the fact that while the story started out really amazing, the later chapters are rather boring. Especially after the whole Akhil/Lithuanel arc. I'm completely clueless after that because there's apparently a time skip after chapter 39.

All good manga, never ever End...Why ?

I really like this, but I feel like this manga deserves a max of 11volumes, its one of those story mangas...It's good but I'm not waiting for it, I'm sick and thred of waiting for the manga I love.

Anyway, this manga's not amazing to me. It's just ok tbh...I just hate Loki, and I feel like I don't know the characters...

Better than I thought...

I was put off from this initially since I hate the male leads who are just plain cruel, yet the girl is still with them. Well, that's definitely not the case here. Ceasar is like that for...a chapter? Then he has some type of revelation and becomes the more immature-jealous-affectionate type rather than the cold-possessive type of male lead. I didn't really see the justification for the sudden personality switch, but he new character was much cuter so no complaints.

That aside, this is pretty average shoujo. Two guys loving the same innocent/pure female lead type deal. She's at least a decent character on her own and can stand up for her self and make her own decisions. The art's cute, but could be better. It's nice there there's a plot revolving around something other than the romance too, so it hasn't been boring or repetitive yet. Loki seems to have some underlying motive all the time. The diversity aspect is nice too. Overall, I'd recommend it. L)

This manga is splendid! I got hooked since the first volume.
I just randomly bought Viz' new-coming manga and this one is absolutely worth it! I really love Viz' translation, it makes you get the feeling right. At the moment, I'm still at Volume 2 (Viz), but I can tell that it's an interesting manga with historical-action-romance genre. I wish that Caesar had more dialogue script so we can get to know him more....
The plot is well done and the facial expressions are well done as well, and the background is quite detail and clean. Great first-fantasy-manga series from this mangaka. It doesn't disappoint and makes me want more. Hope it happens to other readers as well. smile

Predictable and a let-down

Its predictable and the story is told clumsily. Art wise faces are done nicely, bodies ok, bad hands and feet, so-so clothing, backgrounds are mediocre when there is any, action or movement is a joke. I was disappointed because I heard it was popular. I gave it 2 volumes, maybe it gets better later on but it wasn't sufficiently good in beginning to hold me.

I think this manga is quite typical...I can easily foresee the way sensei developes it...and sometimes I find it not dramatic...quite boring...I dont like Nakaba's characteristic and Loki's,too...Caesar is much better but not really good...I think so...The plot is good...but if Reimei no Arcana is shounen...I think it'll much more interesting and dramatic...maybe so...

Plot: 8/10 (the opening is quite boring, then it becomes much better and more dramatic...but still typical, not surprises me much )
Characters: 1/10 ( the characters, I think, are much unnecessarily complicated so they can make you tired (at least for me) and boring....easy to guess what they will do or say...and they're typical,too)
Art: 6/10 ( quite good but background is not really good as it should be )

Anyway, Reimei no Arcana is OK at all...the art is good but not impressive...

Is there anyone thinking it's similar to Akatsuki no Yona in some ways?

A tad cliche. I wince a little at some of the typical kinds of characters and interactions, but it's bearable.

For me there is an overall interesting story, and while the characters aren't the best nor the most original, they aren't unbearable to watch either. The main heroine may have her moments to seem like a weak typical shoujo heroine, but in other situations she does show some initiative and courage. She's not completely helpless and dependent on the main male.

I didn't expect to like this but I did.The Princess Nagaba is strong and admirable, her romance with Prince Caesar is realistic. Although so far there hasn't been too many romantic moments to boast about (otherwise I would be giving this a higher score). Even the side characters are interesting. I'm hoping for some romance there too especially for Lamelia and Loki. But the plot is intricate and detailed, so staying abreast is important as you can easily get lost.
