Im: Great Priest Imhotep
Volume 1


For thousands of years, the world has contained "magai," foul beings who impersonate gods and create catastrophes to feed on the resulting destruction. The true gods are no longer able to triumph against these creatures, so they have no choice but to resurrect the one person capable of exorcizing magai: the Great Priest Imhotep.

Hinome Hawakata is a high school girl who is rumored to be cursed and thus is shunned by her peers. Her life changes after Imhotep rescues her from a magai who was possessing her body. As thanks for his actions, Imhotep starts to live with her family, which leads to a strange friendship forming between the two.

But as Imhotep's past begins to pursue him and new enemies appear, will he be able to carry out his mission to save the universe from absolute chaos?

Story 9/10

The primary strength of the story lies in the way it incorporates the mythology. I mean, yeah, the characters are still drawn in the typical shounen style, and Japanese culture will inevitably read more

Happy to leave a review if it gets more people to check this series out!

I'm mildly obsessed with Ancient Egyptian culture, so I'm already biased in this series' favor. The fact that so many of its little details are fairly accurate to history/mythology just makes me really happy.

That aside, this is a worthwhile read for any manga fan. The story's not too far yet as of the time I write this, but I'm up to date with it and I look forward to seeing how it goes from here. I think the backstory is more interesting than the story at present, but if they read more
