This one's a doozie ,for starters the world building was not interesting or creative at all ,the whole fighting each other for who takes the crown plot is already used enough as it is and i don't think that's a bad thing but here it was done horribly,all those pannels where the characters were polliticking was super boring and not once did i understand who was who or wtf was going on,because the characters all looked alike and the dialogue was very confusing(might've been translation issues but i'm not sure),and while i was clinging to my feet to remember every single characters name and resemble
who was who because they all look alike,new one's kept popping in.
now let's talk about what matters here,the art.the art was second to none and that's what really makes this anime worth reading every single pannel is gorgeous and it rlly shows how much dedication the creator put into it.and the fights OHHH the fights,at first they were very confusing and were making very little sense to me bc either he was just bad at first or bc it took me a while to get used to reading them bc he used the blame approach where you basically have to fill in the blanks of the fight scenes and i wasn't getting it first,but when i did!!! perfect,they was pulling shit outta their ass ,slicing each other heads off like its nothing!really what made the manga stand out.the main story was just a generic holywood revenge story that even a toddler could create but the author did make some good characters like batu but and yaki,and i think it started great and simple but the further it went the more confusing it got for no reason,seems like he was still going with no plans of what was going to happen next,the most significant characters started dying and bland one's with no development replaced them.also, the main plot got scratched and replaced by a worst one and got more convoluted and after all that the ending was dissapointing and abrupt.idk if that was the writer's intention or not but it was kinda bad,maybe his message was that war has no happy endings and that it's everlasting,and that everybody gets lost in the sauce but even then it could've been done better.
i still enjoyed it alot even though it doesn't sound like it i just thought it could've been much better,i also rlly appreciated the author's diaries at the end of each chapter and his little note,made me appreciate it more.☺
