Rentt Faina, a twenty-five-year-old adventurer, has been hacking away at monsters for a decade. However, without much talent for the job, Rentt finds himself stuck hunting slimes and goblins for meager amounts of coin every day. Little does he know, all this is about to change when he comes across a seemingly undiscovered path in the Labyrinth of the Moon's Reflection. What awaits him at the end of the path, however, is neither treasure nor riches, but a legendary dragon that wastes no time swallowing him whole! Waking up a short time later, Rentt finds himself not quite dead, but not very alive either—he is nothing more than a pile of bones! Armed with nothing but his trusty sword, tool belt, and ghoulish new looks, Rentt sets off on his quest as a newly reborn Skeleton to achieve Existential Evolution, hoping to one day return to civilization with a more human form.
Will Rentt succeed, or will the labyrinth consume him for the rest of his un-death...?
Worth a read, starts at a enjoyable pace, and it keeps you entertained by maintaining its momentum within the story.
The story - 7 : Unfortunately, this is where it goes wrong in a well maintained manga, although it is done well, there is not much differentiation within it's own genre, you could predict things by simply reading the synopsis, and as of the current review (20 chapters) I cannot seem to find anything truly unique and different about it. Though the story itself is very nice, the twists are good, lore is explained well. Pretty enjoyable in the end.
The art - 9 : It attempts
to illustrate things in it's own style, I very much like it as it attempts to maintain a more sinister appeal.
The character - 8 : The character is relatively unique, it attempts to portray a darker side of his current state and it does so in an appealing way by using the lore of the world to accommodate the characters situation.
The enjoyment - 10 : Simply worth reading, everything has been thought of in a descriptive and explanatory manner. You can't get very bored of it as it is well thought of.
Overall - 9 : Thanks to its story I cant give it a solid 10, but the way things are going seems to portray a very ideal manga that's developing in the right path. Hope to see more!
Nice, first review. Going to make it short since like 3 people will see this.
Story (7/10): A zero to hero story with a small twist. Nothing fantastic, but definitely gets the job done.
Art (8/10): The art style reminds me of what other mangas of a similar type are trying to do, just done much better. Its not fantastic, but is has very nice stills occasionally.
Character (8/10): Character approaches situations reasonably, which makes it much easier to read without being annoyed. Also, the protagonist manages to be a genuinely good guy, but without going out of his way to help everyone
and everything (he has his priorities straight).
