Magus of the Library
Volume 1


Throughout civilization, books have been revered. They crystallize knowledge, link the past to the future, and convey thought itself. To protect all sorts of written texts, a man known as the Magus of the Library established the Central Library in Aftzaak—the City of Books.

In the slums of the desert village Amun lives Theo Fumis, a young boy who loves to read. Unfortunately, people from the slums are unable to use the local library. To make matters worse, he is continually bullied by his peers due to his unusually long ears. Seeking to escape from his miserable living conditions, he dreams of one day going to Aftzaak.

His unpleasant daily life is soon interrupted by the arrival of the Kafna—elite librarians skillful enough to work at the Central Library. Sedona Bleu, one of the Kafna, lends Theo her most cherished book; however, due to unforeseen circumstances, he is unable to finish reading it by the time the Kafna have to depart. Fortunately for Theo, Sedona renews his loan, giving him yet another reason to go to the City of Books.

A story I’ve recently gotten into and immediately fell in love with. I’ll start by saying I know nothing about what it is based off of and have only read this. The series has a feeling of wonder that is hard to create and harder to maintain but manages it quite well. It’s a powerful story on the state of people, the interaction of races, and the value power and love of books. All of this is extenuated by the magic of the fantasy world it’s set in. It’s not afraid to tackle the issues of prejudice, ignorance and overestimation. I eagerly await more volumes.

An amazing and personal love letter to literature and overcoming obstacles to turn farfetched dreams into passionate ambitions.

"Magus of the Library" is a fantasy manga written and drawn by Mitsu Izumi that focuses on a young mixed-blood boy called Theo Fumis who is an avid fan of literature, but because of his pointed ears and impoverished life, he isn't allowed to use the village library and on top of that, ostracized and mistreated by most folks in the village, particularly from his classmates in school. As he endures the prejudice and hatred of the village, he aspires of traveling to a place where such things read more

I found this story while browsing through the manga leaderboards in MAL. It was around #400-500, and at first, I thought it was an isekai story with an unusually high rating. I was pretty fond of isekai stories, but most of them were plainly enjoyably bad.

So I took some time out of my day to read this interesting story, and what came next blew my mind. The artwork is honestly insane, you are put in this world where weird creatures and magic exists. Books are above all things and are basically in very high demand.

The story follows a boy with mixed genetics, which is read more

It's been a very long time since a series could make me feel so fixated and interested in a world. I have been meaning to make a review on "Magus of the Library" or "Toshokan no Daimajutsushi" in quite a while, but never really had the time, but now that i have, i will write to my hearts content.

STORY (10/10)

The story it's one of the main traits of this manga. "To protect the books is to protect the world", said the "Great Magus" of the past, doing exacly that. Knowledge is the most powerful weapon in the world, however, knowledge alone does read more
