Shinya doesn't get stellar grades, he's not athletic, he's a coward, he's a wimp...he's a general good-for-nothing. One day, he meets Haruna, a girl that could change his life forever. Haruna tells Shinya he is the Messiah. The Lord chosen to save her world and that she is his shield.

Could it be true? Could Shinya's life of ineptitude be balance for this one grand cause? Is he really the Messiah? If he is, can he save himself, let alone an entire world?

Watashi no Messiah-sama was initially published in Shounen Gangan from January 12, 2002 to March 12, 2004. It moved to GFantasy on September 18, 2004 under the title Watashi no Messiah-sama: Lacrima. Volumes 1-6 retain the original title while volumes 7-13 contain the subtitle with the chapter count restarting at 0.

In 2009, Kadokawa Shoten reprinted the series into six bunkoban volumes. This version edited the order of the chapters and didn't include the two one-shots, but instead added the kakioroshi chapter in volumes 5 and 6 titled "Kyou no Meshi 2009" (今日の飯2009).

Never judge a book by its cover

This review will be analysing Watashi no Messiah-sama by Minazuki Suu. At the time of writing, I have read up to chapter 9 of the second story - 36th in all.

The story is outstanding. Watashi no Messiah-sama has so much depth that it never seems to get old. Initially, you feel that this series is going to be a typical harem which has its basis on comedy and fantasy. What you get is so much more.

We are introduced to Shinya, a normal high schooler who is told that he is the messiah. The plot revolves around his read more

Catching and thrilling is easiest way to describe this manga.

Story: The Story was a great read keeps the reader wanting more for most of the series. It is split in two halves and I personally thought the second half was better. The only negative parts are that the story is slow at the beginning, but is easy to read. The plot in the beginning plays on the weak main guy char quite a bit, but changes faster as he gets further in. It is really hard to describe the story without out spoiling the story.

Art: Nice art, but can be a bit too descriptive by read more

First i know its mangaka, Minazuki Suu from Sora no Otoshimono, and i love its art and chara design. And then i found this manga made by same author so i think i will have a look at this, and i am very surprised!!This is as good and maybe better than Sora no Otoshimono. I am surprised Suu can make heavy touching drama manga like this so good!!

This manga has a very wonderful story, its so touching my heart. It's a very good heavy touching drama manga. Reader will feel whats it's like to be main character and will feel like you are just in read more

Truth be told, I only stumbled upon this manga when looking through Mikazuki Suu's, one of my favourite mangaka out there,list of works. I had zero expectations of this manga, seeing that this was one of his earlier works. Rather frankly, I was pleasantly surprised, and not only that, this has become my favourite manga of all time. Not even one of my favourites, but my FAVOURITE, despite there being the stereotypical wimp of a slumping good for nothing high school student as a protagonist that goes by the name of Shinya.

STORY: Now, how the story progresses is what makes this manga read more

Manga: Sora no Otoshimono
Same artist.
While this may seem like another ecchi/harem manga, the plots that they have every now and then are VERY good, enough to make a person like me shed a tear or two

Manga: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
The main characters are your average good for nothing dudes. They both suck at sports, studies and the like but both of them will perform a certain ROLL which will lead them to GREATNESS.

Manga: Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou
Not only do they share a common length in titles... But in both there are these two normal guys, but later they both find out that they are both destined for something great in Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou; to become a Demon King and destroy the world, In Watashi no messiah-sama he finds out he's suppose to be the Messiah and save a world; I recommend both manga they're both great

The first thing that came to mind when I read the summary.

Two worlds? Check

Either of the worlds must perish for the other to survive? Check

Chosen one to save one/both worlds? Check

Frequently new enemies/allies? Check

Manga: Sekirei
They both involve a Harem and are heavy on fighting. Both have romance between characters, they also involve the main character over-coming many trials.
