Synopsis

Legend speaks of seven heroes, each one bearing the power of one of the stars of the Big Dipper. Two of these stars are constantly in conflict, destined to battle and throw the world into chaos… Not that Taitou has ever paid much attention to old stories. Headstrong and defiant, he is the last in his village to complete his coming-of-age ceremony — a fact his sister Laila incessantly teases him about. When he is finally deemed worthy, he is presented with the Kenkaranbu, an ancient sword that can only be drawn by a true hero. As the frustrated Taitou struggles to unsheathe the sword, a mysterious thief appears, making off with the blade and citing the legend of the Big Dipper. The stars have been set in motion, as Taitou sets off after the Kenkaranbu and the truth of his own destiny...

First of all, the manga is 100% better than the anime, which I've been watching. While the anime is basically straight shonen cliche, the manga has good points that rise above that. And where the hero's sister Laila is basically there to stand around and be protected in the anime, she's a dynamic hero in the manga and a great character.

This story is written by Hiromu Arakawa and a couple other folks- unfortunately, that shows. A lot of parts are rushed, and some bits aren't cohesive with others. A lot of it is standard shonen- but there are touches of originality (that I personally think read more
