Synopsis

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.

Preliminary (14/? eps)
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.

Preliminary (19/? eps)
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 ...

Toshokan no Daimajutsushi, or Magus of the Library, is one of, if not the most beautiful piece of media I've seen in years, not limited to just manga, or just books as a whole.


The visuals of this story are on another level of excellent, some panels looking as if they could stand alone as art pieces in a museum, levels of detail which are, to be frank, absurd, and emotive character designs that can stand up to it all. The visuals were so good, to the point where it is the first and only manga I had to buy in physical.


But the manga isn't ...
