Prince Lucas, after many years of absence, returns home to save his country from Duke Demonas, a merciless man who killed his parents and stole the throne. And what's this... he does it by using a strange power?!
Alright so, Antimagia as a whole was a rather fun ride. Its the kind of manga where you'll only put it down because of reasons other than "because I don't like it".
Sure, it was fast-paced. The story also left some unanswered questions.
But like with most mangas, that "just don't make the grade", leaving some questions unanswered allows the readers to either A) depict for themselves what the answers are or B) get angry that there are no solid, concrete answers. (Maybe even C- where you combine both A and B. Who knows?)
But the story is promising because it weaves lots of different elements
together. It has comedic, adventurous, and even thoughtful themes woven throughout. Towards the end, it gives you a question to answer (or not haha).
The art is absolutely terrific. It definitely lives up to attracting the (female) eye.
The fantasy theme is played out extremely well, as it extends from setting to character.
The main character is also developed rather well; enough to make you understand (like most mangas with a hero that returns with a purpose) how far a situation can drive someone to do something, even if it means losing something precious. This is the price of vengeance (one of the revolving themes in the story).
Something that I sort of picked up on, during the story, was the strong infactuation between the two siblings. There was the feeling that a love stronger than just that of siblings, was going on, but really it's up to you to make that decision. *Just giving a heads up, for those of you not wanting to risk it.*
If you can't stand unanswered questions/ seemingly rushed manga, than you could look elsewhere.
But really, it shouldn't even be much of a bother (or even at all).
Enjoy the read!
Antimagia is a short, but fun ride. The story isn't that great and leave us with a lot of questions that aren't answered even at the end. The ending too isn't something extraordinary and feels a bit rushed, without much development. The art is great, and it's made by Kyu Aiya, the same person that makes Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari art. It was nice seeing the ressemblance between Lucas and Naofumi since he's my favorite fantasy hero.
Overall, it's a fun manga and I'd say it's worth giving it a shot since it's so short.
I'm sorry if the review has any flaws, english isn't
my first language.
Thanks for reading! I hope my review was useful.
I found this manga to be very interesting due to the fact its main character has a power i have never seen in other mangas. So in that aspect i found this manga to be very original, The story seems to take place in medieval times. The main character of the story is Prince Lucas a prince that everyone thought was dead but returned to take his throne. Prince Lucas has a love for animals and also can use magic that can transform the animals into a more prehistoric form with can destroy his enemy's. Overall this manga is every interesting and will most likely
become very popular within the next year.
