Volume 1


Five years ago, Musashi made a promise with his friend Kojirou Kanemaki that once they grew up, they would become samurai, form a league, and go on demon-slaying quests. But since then, things have changed. With demons now being praised and worshipped by society, the samurai are shunned and disgraced.

Afraid of revealing his dream of becoming a samurai, Musashi blends into the town's dogma by becoming a miner while secretly polishing his swordsmanship. Meanwhile, despite being a direct descendant of a samurai, Kojirou gives up on his promise to his old friend. However, after saving Musashi from a near-death experience, his perspective shifts. Although still conflicted, Kojirou embarks on a journey with Musashi in the hopes of figuring out his true feelings.

Fighting against all odds, the duo dives headfirst into the unknown world of beast-slaying, not knowing what life has in store for them. Now astride iron horses, the 15-year-old heroes plan to restore the tarnished reputation of the samurai and purge the world of demons.

Preliminary (60/? eps)
OK. When I founded that Magi´s author realased a new manga i didn´t expected too much. Maybe because it reminds me of Edens Zero or Samurai 8, which taught me that the fact that a person makes a good manga doesn´t means that everythinh it does is good. But I had a big surprise reading Orient.

The story is about the Edo Japanese period dominated by Onis and Kishins (basucally, demons, samurais, swords, magic, that kind of stuff) and a guy called Musashi and his friend Kojiro (I still loving that references to characters of the context that Ohtaka works)

This is the weakest point of ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (94/? eps)
Story is mediocore and predictable. TBH, I don't like the start of the manga. I feel that it started to improve in the latest chapters.

If you like Shinobu's art, then there's that. I love her art, although sometimes I feel her art is excessively 'detailed'. Unnecessary drawings are being drawn that makes the panels 'full' and pakced.

EXTRA; character designs are great, I really like Shinobu's design as always. BUT, there are many similar faces with Magi, so be prepared xD

The characters are alright, they're not amazing, but they're not bad. Like I said, generic.

I enjoy reading it til' the latest chapter, ...

Preliminary (3/? eps)
This is a review of only the first 3 chapters of the story, and now that you're informed, let us talk about this interesting situation we've got here.

Orient is the new manga of Ohtaka Shinobu, Magi's author. And though a lot of people say that you should separate the author's works, it should be acknowledged that you'd expect something good from an author whom you've read\watched their works before.

Just to make it clear, I've dropped this manga, Twice.

The biggest problem that it has is not managing to be interesting enough for me to read it. You can predict whatever's going to happen ...
