A sexy take on the story of the Ten Heroes of Sanada. Within you shall find many a big-breasted woman and willowy bishounen (surely this manga will appeal to fans on both sides of the spectrum).... Enough about that now lets get on with how the manga is.
Story (8/10) Very Good
The story is not very unique. The adventure aspect of it is one that we have been on before. Do you guys remember the time in your life when you read a manga where a girl is being chased, then she finds some burly guy to protect her, then start their adventure like that? Yea,
this is kind of life that. Well, I cant really specifiy if this is an adventure type of manga or not, because only 8 chapters have been scanlated. But so far, they are going on an adventure and has only spent 4 chapters inside a castle.
The fight scenes are dynamic, and the story is fast paced, so it makes up for the lame plot (so far). There will be times where you will find some of this cliche, but you will also find yourself laughing for no apparent reason. Anyway, the story is good enough for me to put it on hold for 6 hours because I wanted to enjoy every single moment of it( I had 6 hour academy).
The art is OUTSTANDING. The art is one point the artist can definitely be proud of it. The way the artist put effort into the fight scenes makes me ecstatic. Instead of those lame mangas where the fight scenes is composed of 4 panels, this one takes about a few pages, but not too much to make it repetitive.
Character (6/10) Fair
Im going to have to admit, as much as I have enjoyed reading this, the characters were not too deep. Some parts were very cliche, such as the famous "I cant even protect her??? Im worthless! Im such a faggot. Maybe I should give up this way of life" Well, that was overexaggerating it, but you guys get what I mean. That was the worst part of this manga. But in my case, it wasnt enough to keep me from reading it.
Enjoyment/ Overall (8.5)
Like I said, I have struggled to keep myself from reading any further chapters because I wanted to savor it. Some ppl might get confused with what I am saying. This manga only has 8 chapters. I really liked it, until I got to chapter 4 and realized I had academy in the next 20 min. I restrained myself from reading any further because I wanted to savor it for when I got back. I couldnt enjoy this with academy at the back of my head. This was how much I enjoyed it. Its not like I could do this with any manga; only an exceptional few.
This manga should take around 20 ~ 50min if read continuously, so I recommend this to anyone who has that kind of time. It is a good read, and some aspect about it will get you hooked.
