Princess Nakaba of Senan is forced to marry Prince Caesar of the enemy country Belquat, tantamount to becoming a hostage. While Caesar is pleasing to the eye, he is also selfish and possessive, telling Nakaba outright: "You are my property." 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!

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.

I must admit that at first I was very captivated by this manga. I liked how the characters were introduced. And Nakaba seems to be not one of those whiny female lead that I very much dislike. But not until the recent chapters I realized their bipolar problems...uhoh... the characters personalities had changed drastically I ended up scratching my head. Nakaba became the whiny girl, and caesar became the sweet lad. You'll notice it too once you compare the first chapter to the latest one...
In my opinion, the mangaka failed to build a stable, solid personality for each characters making it a failure (at least on that part). I still love the romance though smile

I agree with In-tuition on this one. This series just falls FLAT.
I read this series looong ago and didn't like it much, so I tried re-reading it... I TRIED to like it, but there really is not much to like. The female character is suppose to come out as 'strong' but she doesn't look very strong when she can hardly do anything on her own or faints every chapter or two.
Rest of the characters in general are just pathetic and shallow or their personality is completely unstable.
I remember in chapter 10 the red haired princess was put to jail just like that for disagreeing about something, no question asked they just take her to jail. Really? What kind of world do they live in?
Everything is just so... once again FLAT.
I liked the art but it's actually quite dull, especially since there's hardly any background. It's almost as if they live in a black and white world.
Not to mention this series reminds me of a mixture of Akagami no Shirayukihime and Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen with just a few tweaks and lifelessness.
This series by no means deserves a 10.
But hell, go check it out yourself.

Sure, it's a lot similar to Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen, but it has it's own appeal. In my opinion, I definitely enjoyed Reimei no Arcana much more. It's actually one of my favorites!

The main girl was feisty and brave but not overpoweringly, she was still lovable. While the prince was a total bishie (which made the romance that much more enjoyable!) I loved it all, the characters, plot, romance. If you want a shoujo that will give you goose bumps with the romance, then this is the one for you!

And I know there's a lot of reviews on how it's so cliched and everything, but believe me when I say I've read some mind-numbing shoujo with non-existing plot and mindless kissing. This is not the case here.


Story: 10/10
Art: 10/10

Reimei no Arcana is great. I was resisting to read it because I thought it'd be another shoujo with a crying-girl-looking-for-her-perfect-prince but no, I ended loving it. RNA is the way a shoujo must be. Many people could say that it's cheesy or with many cliches, so what are you reading this? Shoujo is romance and drama basically.
The characters are simple but well done.
The art is super hiper mega great!
The plot is nice and promises a lot. I love all the lovey-dovey scenes because they show a passionate love without using smuttiness like in other 'shoujos'.

I have high hopes in this manga. I pray mainly for that the plot won't go down and the mangaka could manage all of these resources to bring a good story like until now. Btw, that guy in the V4 cover seems that's going to introduce something interesting. Hope so.
