The students of the Barsburg Empire's Military Academy are trained to become capable fighters who will serve as the empire's newest soldiers. Every year, five hundred students take a graduation exam, where only 20 can pass to become honorable "begleiters," a position equivalent to assistant executive officers. Students fight their enemies by using "zaiphon," God-given abilities that take different forms depending on the individual.

Teito Klein, the academy chairman's favorite student, is belittled by his peers due to his previous status as a slave. Despite being unable to fully remember his past, Teito's cheerful best friend, Mikage Celestine, stays by his side. After the two undergo the exam, Teito recalls small pieces of a long-forgotten memory, causing him to instinctively attack the chief-of-staff, Ayanami.

Subdued for his insubordination, Teito is imprisoned for further questioning. But with the help of Mikage, Teito escapes to the Barsburg Church in the empire's Seventh District. As he struggles to escape the clutches of the Barsburg Empire's military, he unveils the memories that lie within him and learns about a compelling power that roams in the shadows of the empire.

I've watched the anime, and I was hoping that they go for a second season, however, it didn't happen, so I ended up reading the manga AND!!... I wasn't disappointed... I love love love love it!!!

It tells the story of Teito Klein, his perseverance to find his true self, and his bravery to unlock his sealed memories.

The story has a lot of characters, and you get to love each one of them, even if they only took a small part in the manga. Each one of them played a significant role in Teito's past and present life.

The good thing about supporting read more

3 years after its completion, I still find myself inexplicably mesmerized by the epic tale that is 07 Ghost.

It's a tale about the rise and fall of kingdoms - about power struggles and political squabbles. But while the military backdrop and history of the land are beautifully carved, 07 Ghost is not a warstory at all. Rather, at it's core, 07 Ghost is a story about accepting all that life has to offer. It's about having the heart to appreciate another's act of kindness. It's about having the strength to move on when bad things happen.

The battle mechanics in the story reinforce this. Characters use read more

This is a wonderful manga that I think has enough action to appeal to some shounen fans as well as those (like me!) who love anything supernatural with a complex storyline and gorgeous pretty men. It’s not explicitly shounen ai I don’t think but there’s plenty there for the boys-love fans to read into. I get majorly excited whenever there’s a cool beautiful baddie and we get one entering the frame pretty much straightaway - and then the plot thickens with a sometimes quite bewildering complex array of characters, with multiple motivations and alliances. I really enjoyed the fantasy world read more
