Synopsis

Long ago, there was a great war between the realms of angels and demons over mankind. The demons were a wicked lot and treated humans as their toys, while the angels fought to protect humans from the demons. When the war was over the angels built a town called Ilvia to keep humanity safe against the demons. In the middle of Ilvia is a place called sanctuary where children live under the guidance of the angels. The angels teach the children they must not leave the sanctuary because the demons will get them due to being attracted to their pure souls. When the children reach there fourteenth birthday they graduate from the sanctuary and are seen off by the other children to paradise. What is paradise? All is well or is there something more sinister going on behind the scenes...

I cried at the end of this story, and if I sound like an uneducated bitch, then so be it.

After reading some other reviews i found out that the author died. That explains a lot, since this manga has an extremly abrupt ending. Which may really shock you since the first five chapters or so speaks of a large and interesting adventure that may go on for a few volumes or so.

However, i really enjoyed it and the artstyle is ...

Mixed Feelings
tl;dr: Interesting concepts with a pretty bad execution. 

This manga starts off with an interesting concept and some solid world building. I also thought the character designs were solid and though there weren't that many the basic character introductions were solid enough. The battle system too seemed like it had potential. However, it had a few major issues right off the bat. The first is that the pacing was pretty random. While they were still in the sanctuary it was decent enough, but after they left it felt like things got a lot more arbitrary and it didn't feel like it was telling a cohesive story. ...
