Rather than rant about the fanatical actions I took to obtain and “read” through… till the end of the series… I just wanted to say… “Wow.” Or more like “Holy cow… What a freakin’ good manga series this turned out to be.” Well, at least for me… but, it’s a complete turn-over of interest for me. Rarely do I find myself actually enjoying Fighting-oriented manga/anime series… yet… Friends, this was certainly not an ordinary series to miss. It’s got the whole deal of a splendid series, perhaps even almost qualified as epic. Absolutely clever and creative plot and story involved, very genuine and personal characters read more

This is the first Korean manga I read and I effing love it. One look at Ares and Michael, and the way that the manga is drawn, I immediately fell victim of addiction.

At first it was quite confusing since I was used to read from right to left. It was not until the fourth pages that I realized that you are supposed to read it as usual, not like a manga from Japan.

Anyway, it is about three young kids turns warriors in a war or carnage. They might look innocent but each has strange and dark past that constituted the savageness of their nature. read more

If you like war stuff and fighting, then this is the type of manhwa for you. Despite being a fairly heavy topic, the characters and their interactions does not make it as depressing as some other manga though this does change as the story progresses. It is kind of strange and refreshing to see a story that sometimes glorifies war. I will say the author was very good at building up suspense which is one of the main reason I kept reading on.

The main thing i disliked about it was that it embodied some very predictable tropes later on and some parts are unbelievable.

What can I say about this story that hasn't been said already. For starters it's not perfect but it comes close for a shonen fighting series. Ares is in one word Epic. I don't favor that word because of the modern over-usage of it but that is the single best word to describe the action thrills that come from Ares. Most of the characters are fantastic with special mention going to Mikael and Ares who are stand outs among a good cast. All the characters are painted realistically with their own motives and desires. It does have funny and heartwarming moments to go with the read more
