Synopsis

Sixteen year old Emma finally arrives at the capital city Hawk Eye after escaping from being held captive for her entire life. But as soon as she arrives, every man in the city, including the king, falls madly in love with her. She is about to be forced into marriage, but is saved by a sorcerer. The sorcerer identifies himself as Shion, one of the youngest and most talented in the nation. They have met before, but Emma has no recollection.

Shion explains to Emma that she is cursed with the Echidna, a mysterious magic that appears every 500 years where a girl is born with her heart packed with such powerful dark magic that it has the potential to destroy the world. With such power, one could rule the world, and Shion explains to Emma that people are going to try and hunt her down to get her heart. However, Emma is told that there exists a ritual that will rid her of the Echidna's curse but doing so will require a long and arduous process. The first of that being Emma and Shion will have to marry each other...

I regret my first review for this. I was young and stupid. Stupid younger self. Don't read the old review under the new review

So I'll rereview it, without bias on what a shounen is.

When I was young, shounen was basically...One Piece. In a nut shell, shounen was One Piece. But then there were Psychological Shounen like Death Note. Shounen just means 'directed to young boys/men', it doesn't necessarily mean...One Piece.

So Magico, I considered maybe it was a romantic shounen, but it wasn't. It wasn't your usual romantic shounen, where the protagonist is dense and the harem punches him. So I concluded read more

I was bored so picked up this manga because a lot of ppl were praising it. TBH, I don't see it as an out of ordinary shounen, if anything it gives me a feeling of shounen written for girls. The story reminds of Dragon ball, where the mage named Shion and his wife Emma have to obtain some objects, spells and rituals to surpress a power in her. They leave for a journey to search for these obejects et al, they encounter friends, enemies and some ppl who become travelling companions. The journey and the events related to obtaining of certain thing are very short, read more

"W...within my heart... there's a magical power that can destroy the world?"

At first glance, Magico may seem like a typical shounen manga, but it is far from the average shounen manga. There are fights, but they aren't the main focus. If you're here for the action and battles, well then this is not the manga for you. If you're interested more in romance and comedy, then this is more for you.

Story: 7/10
The story starts off as a pretty average story, with a few twists added in there. A boy finds a girl that he's secretly loved, he rescues her, and they go out to read more
