I was looking for yet another manga to read while the library at my school. Behold, I had the first volume of Last Fantasy. After flipping through the pages I was intrested and soon read all 5 volumes.
In this story we have the two heros Drei and Tian, who are wondering adventurers that try to look for treasure or any other kind of valubles to get themselves gold. On their adventures they encounter a pissed off female dragon (they killed her father without knowing who he was), the lost prince of Ameria (who is really a female), a skilled theif with the power of magic
rings, and a deadly zombie outbreak.
There is lots of comedy scenes, but I felt that they did them in the right moments and used the serious parts when there was action or important dialouge. The fantasy setting in the continent of Galarnia and the humor at RPG cliches is entertaining. The artwork is also very good and detailed, the characters and backgrounds look great no matter the moment.
Now, this manga could of been SO much more. I feel it is underappreciated and deserves more people reading it, but the manga was cancelled and only consisted of 5 volumes (8 chapters). The story was getting developed more and more with each chapter. We had Trien fighting his old schoolmate, the 3 ancient mages wanting to ressurect the demon king, and the prince of Ameria about to be executed. However, all of this intresting plot material is thrown away and crushed. Volume 5 is pointless since all it succeeds in doing is teasing us as though the story will go on, but really it was over. It's not fair that a good manga like this one had so much potential but was cancelled, plus the ending was pure shite, since we will never see Tian and Drien go on other adventures
This manga was great, and I'm sad that it ended so suddenly without a clear ending. The plot could of gone on so much longer, but hey, I guess you could call this one 'short, but sweet'. The artwork is great and the two main characters are loveable. Give this one a read if you can.
