There is a rumor that a magician lives in the tent by the abandoned theme park; some even say his magic is real. However, before he starts his show, he always asks his audience: "Do you believe in magic?"

For Yoon Ah-ee, magic seems like a distant memory. Faced with the harsh reality of poverty, she spends all her time studying, working, and taking care of her younger sister in the absence of their parents. She no longer believes in the wonders of magic, just like her skeptical classmate Na Il-Deung, who has been brought up to believe that a good education is the only way to approach life.

When Ah-ee stumbles into the abandoned theme park and has a chance encounter with the magician, her life is changed forever. Annarasumanara reveals a philosophical, heartwarming, and thought-provoking story of what it means to grow up into the person you want to be.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Annarasumanara was digitally published in English by LINE Webtoon from July 1, 2014 to December 12, 2014.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." –Pablo Picasso

Is life a free reality, or a fated game? What happens if you don’t fit into the mold that society wants you to fit in? Can you keep those crazy dreams and beliefs that you had as a child when you move onto adulthood? What's the different between being a child and being an adult? Is great success the most important thing in life? Can you force yourself to just not grow up? What is happiness?

This is the very first manhwa (Korean Manga) that I've ever read more

I'm not seeing where all the hype is coming from on this one. To me, this was a forgettable manwha.

Story [6/10] - I like the atmosphere of the fairground, and the main theme of holding on to childhood dreams. That's about it. Everything else was kinda cliche and forgettable.

Art [4/10] - This is my least favorite part. I don't think the art is inherently bad. There were plenty of moments where the art was great, especially the flashback in chapter 25. However, during 95% of the story, we are treated with the depiction of the main character, who is drawn like a doll and has read more

What would happen if you turned away from society? What would happen if you stopped on the road of life? What would happen if instead of moving forward, you planted your feet squarely on the ground and refused to lose your childish purity? What if you never grew up?

These are all questions which Annarasumanara asks the reader. I'd say that thematically, it is similar to the likes of Peter Pan, but that would be doing this manwha an incredible injustice. For a story all about rejecting adult life, this story is a lot more mature than the average.

The story is of course, based read more

While it was visually stunning, all characters were great and the story had a pretty decent flow for a dark 27 chapter webtoon. However I felt the ending needed to be finished properly like man, I wanted to see how our dude L is getting on after being taken away by the police. I felt there didn't need to be a cliffhanger but that's just my personal thought. Also I still can't get over that Na Il-Deung's head transformed from a sausage to normal size throughout this whole manhwa!

Yup you gotta definitely check this read more
