This is my first review, so i'm sorry if it's not all that good.
Ibara no Majutsushi is a unique oneshot about a village where for a long time, doctors had been viewed suspiciously and persecuted. The story focuses on a young man who wants to get rid of this prejudice.
The story was wonderful. It was very unique and i never got tired of it throughout reading the story. Although the story was short, being a oneshot, the whole thing flowed smoothly and really kept me interested. There's not much more to say about it without giving stuff away, but it's really very good.
The art was fantastic! I love this mangaka's drawing style, the art is very pleasing to look at, not at all awkward.
Because it is a oneshot, there isn't a huge amount of character development for every single character, but the main characters develop very nicely throughout the story. I especially liked how the mangaka portrayed the villagers' aversion to medicine and the personality and development of a certain character.
The whole story left me with a very nice feeling inside, and i cried at some parts of the story too. I really enjoyed this, the unique story and wonderful art all intertwines and makes the enjoyment level very high.
So, overall, Ibara no Majutsushi is a wonderful oneshot with a very unique story, great artwork, and very well-portrayed characters. If you want a unique story or even just something to pass time, you should definitely read this. read more
