This is the first real action manga that I loved both the guys and the herione!! Ley/Lena is soooo cool!~ She's faithful, strong, loveable and admirable!! I LOVE HER!~ I also love Michael (hey I'm a sucker for gorgeous guys!) and the prince (he's sooo cute). I can't wait for it to end!! I want to know the ending, and I will definitely REREAD this manga (and I NEVER reread manga series!!)

if you have time to read this, read Basara instead

If you like this manhwa, you're better off reading Basara which has better character developments and a stronger story, and definitely more awesome illustrations.

The characters in Saver are really bland, even the heroine. none The plot is predictable and there isn't really anything special here. It's like it's trying too hard to have an impact on its audience, but all the notes it's hitting are just still shallow.

Saver is one of the few great fantasy/historical epics from a shoujo genre perspective. If you enjoy Twelve Kingdoms or Basara, you will likely enjoy Saver.

One of the strongest points of Saver is the main character. Lena kicks ass. She's strong. She's logical and doesn't jump out to be the defender of the universe. But she's not two-dimensional because the readers are shown very clearly what her emotions are.

The second strongest point is the story. Saver is a nice, complete story, although it is cut a little short at the end. The direction of the story doesn't veer very fair off like is seen in many great mangas. Typically, the quality of the story deteriorates greatly when the "big, bad mystery final boss" is revealed. This didn't happen for Saver. The end of the series felt more rushed, but the plot was still coherent and enjoyable. Refreshingly enough, there is also quite a bit of foreshadowing in this series! You'll read something in Volume 5, and it'll come back up 5 or 7 volumes later.

If I had one thing to criticize about Saver is character development. Saver is very action- and event-driven, but very little time is spent on the characters themselves. We don't get a lot of time to get closer to cast.. Rather, the personalities and feelings of each character are laid out plainly in front of you, and the reader just has to accept it.

I'm a sucker for gender bender and this one simply draws me into it. Ley is really beautiful (as woman and man lol) and I couldn't help feeling excited, wanting to know what's the progress. She started off alone and in no time her allies increased... they are attracted by her charisma.

I'm curious... how will the story end?

If the first chapter or so was it's own manga, I'd give this a 10/10 but then the heroine becomes some character that I did not enjoy reading. I love strong female characters but her characterization is far from realistic. Granted, it's manwha and they go back in time but! I prefer to relate to heroines, no watch my character surround themselves with so much angst they don't know what to do with it.

On a good note, everyone looked fabulous.

Lena Ha has this gritty determination that most of her sex in manga/manhwa seldom possess. Admiration doesn't stem from her beauty and grace, though it's worth mentioning, but more of her humbling forbearance and daunting strength. Enjoy a roller-coaster ride as Lena searches for the truth and establshes who she really is.

I often felt as if I would have skipped a page or panel in this manga, but NO, I haven't. You have to watch out a little because of the fast pace and sometimes you will even have to go back and look who that character was again.
It's annoying, but the story is really good and the characters awesome. (especially the herione).
So it's absolutely worth the trouble.

I love the main character Lena/Ley she is strong, and is able to fight for herself, not like one of those shy heroines that are weak and helpless, and rely on the men

Man, I wish I was as strong and charismatic as this girl. (Meaning Lena/ Ley) By simply being herself; the androgynous enigma Lena unwittingly draws all sorts of characters to herself, much like the way a high burning flame calls forth many moths. Lena's character; her enduring personality, her fortitude, earn people's respect, their admiration, and this is even before the whole "Child of Prophecy / Save the world" deal. Her silent and dismissing attitude can and is often mistaken for coldness, while we the readers know this to not be the case...Inside of this girl boils all sorts of crippling emotions, and with good reason. Manga characters have given up on life for lesser burdens; compared to the many that this engaging heroine has to bear. The imagery in the overall artwork is beautifully depicted and detailed. The men are absolute bishies. Lucien, Micheal even the villainous count is gorgeous *Insert drool here*. The plot is rich in it's own history, politics, warring tribes etc. And by the gods, I tell you everyone has an agenda, so there are enough side stories to shift the focus of off Ley from time to time. The action is thrilling and yes there is action, not simply limited to sword fights either. Ley is a total bad-ass with a sword, especially when she's provoked/pissed. So lets see...
☑Engaging plot-line
☑Breathtaking characters/ Bishies
☑Fulfilling action sequences/fights
Now, that only leaves a surprisingly no-nonsense, un-yielding, and determined heroine; predestined to be the catalyst at the center of it all....
You bet your ass Check.

such... beautiful.. men..
really interesting. i also like how you can't guess who she will end up with. and the setting in the middle ages is very interesting to set the plot in. it didn't really stand out in the beginning to me.. but now it does~ (hehe)
lena is unlike any heroine i've ever encountered.. and i like it! cold, bearing pain, strong.. sometimes seemingly lacking humanity. but it's there!
ohhh and i am TOTALLY rooting for michael. he's sooooo beautiful, and i love long hair. XD plus
Spoiler (highlight to view)
he knows lena is really a girl, and i'm pretty sure he really really likes her since he's following her and "protecting" her. at least that's my take on it!
