"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

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 relatable 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

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

This is an amazing work of art unlike many of the stories you see out there. I love the author's unique art style. There is very little color, but when it's used, it really pops and adds to the story.

Also, the story itself has a depth to it that's not seen in many of the works out there. I would most likely have rated the story and characters higher, but I haven't finished the series yet. (as a note, don't start if you want to finish quickly. I believe that nobody is currently translating the last few chapters)

Manga: Paradise Kiss
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...

Manga: Oyasumi Punpun
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.

Manga: Girls of the Wild's
Though both of these mangas are quite different in terms of tone, annarasumanara is darker and more psychological, girls of the wild's being more comedic. But there are alot of similarities between the two.
-both have a poor character who is the breadwinner of his/her family. Both of the have been abandoned by their mothers.
-both have a rich character that falls for the poor protagonist.
-The protagonist goes to school as well as work part-time. He also starts to learn something new as the series progresses.(magic tricks in the former and boxing in the latter)
-He/She go through massive devalopment.
Annarasumanara is better in  read more

Manga: Orange
Both are bittersweet stories with coming of age elements. The main protagonists in both manga are young girls who are struggling with the difficulties in their lives, and whose worlds change forever after they meet a man. Overall, both are short and emotional works, which evoke feelings from the reader, and create similar moods.
