The main premise of the story is that Felicia Rand Philistine intends to return to her former glory after being released from her seal after 1000 years. She was sealed by the main character's ancestor who was regarded as a hero for doing so. However, she is unable to draw out her full power without receiving a kiss from Felix Maian. So whether Felix likes it or not he is going to be dragged around by Felicia. The story is actually a lot better than I make it sound. This is not just another "hero story" or rom-com. There are people planning to use Felicia, read more

what makes this manga so unique , is that it takes your usual "Hero " story and turns it on its head.

Its fresh , funny , well written and developed , with all the right amount of romance, action , adventure , echiness , fantasy and just plain fun .

Its written by the same guy who did Freezing , but in a lot of ways ,I rate even higher!

So yeah read more

I just love the fact that you can see how the hero evolves, but still keeps failing on many occasions, not the "always win"-additude which Naruto, for example, has. The drama part plays an important role as well, but the author doesn't keep things as granted as the reader. I, as a huge manga fan, read more

Yes one more sword and sorcery manhwa,why is this genre so popular in Korea?They have much more titles of this kind than Japan or other country.Is this necessarily a bad thing?No.Cause this is one of my favorite genres I’m very happy with this kind of manhwa/manga,and even more if this one is made by manhwa máster Im Dal Young author of Unbalance x2,Kurokami,Freezing and other popular works.Also it’s very common for a work of this kind have a title starting with “Legend”,it’s almost a clichê of that genre.The manga seens like a genderflip version of Bastard!! And Rebirth(the Lee Kang Woo manhwa,unrelated to the Im read more
