Children are miraculous things. Even those born in unfortunate circumstances have the impressive power to see magic in everyday life, an ability we all lose upon entering adulthood. This naive outlook on life is something we look back upon fondly, and lament over losing as we begrudgingly walk forward into our adult lives.

But some people refuse to walk that path; they refuse to grow up.

Annarasumanara is the tale of one such person and the impact he has upon a young girl who's been forced to grow up quickly, in a realistically difficult world.

The story is a masterful weaving of the harsh realities of read more

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." –Pablo Picasso

Is life a free reality, or a fated game? What happens if you don’t fit into the mold that society wants you to fit in? Can you keep those crazy dreams and beliefs that you had as a child when you move onto adulthood? What's the different between being a child and being an adult? Is great success the most important thing in life? Can you force yourself to just not grow up? What is happiness?

This is the very first manhwa (Korean Manga) that I've ever read more

What would happen if you turned away from society? What would happen if you stopped on the road of life? What would happen if instead of moving forward, you planted your feet squarely on the ground and refused to lose your childish purity? What if you never grew up?

These are all questions which Annarasumanara asks the reader. I'd say that thematically, it is similar to the likes of Peter Pan, but that would be doing this manwha an incredible injustice. For a story all about rejecting adult life, this story is a lot more mature than the average.

The story is of course, based read more

We are brought into a world where the main characters each have their own problem. Problems that are serious yet common around the world. There will be at least one point in the story, where you feel as if the story is about you. Instead of trying to create completely unique and fresh back-stories, they made relate-able ones. Ones that made you think about your own life and what you want.

The story really is a journey of self-discovery for us and the characters. What is that YOU want? As the chapters progress, over and over, we are taught that it is okay to be read more

For some reason when I started Annara, Oyasumi Punpun came to my mind immediately. They are dark, psychological and awesome masterpieces. I recommend both of them.
annarasumanara's magician reminds me of george from paradise kiss - both manga are about people who create real magic through their creations - both have beautiful female leads who don't realize they're beatiful until george/the magician show them they're beautiful - both have wonderful art...
Both are coming-of-age tales of teens who deal with their current predicaments to better themselves. While the two are vastly different in accordance to plot, both the protagonists learn a valuable lessons in life from the influences of the people around them.
A romance induced story as the male lead fights for affection from the female protagonist that he's taking interest in. Both manga's indulge in the supernatural aspect which brings a very different twist to the story branching away from the normal romance route. Both stories are very fascinating when reading to see just what the male character will do next to get the attention of the girl he is infatuated with.
After finished our happy hours I somehow realize they have many similarities. Both are mangas with short length and very little amount of cast. Same premise where both female protagonist are having hard times(Poverty in Annara, Family matter in OHH) but their life changed when they met the male protagonist. Same kind of ending (I won't spoil here), Definitely check this out if you love romance story.
