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

Once, I read Chrono Trigger, which I had on my top 1 for a long time. And then The Legend of Maian just kicked it to the second place.

The Legend of Maian is a refreshing turn to the shounen category. It's story is extremely well planned in the long term. 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

SO THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN A WARNING AT THE END! THERE IS NO SPOILER BUT I FEEL COMPELLED TO WARN FUTURE READERS ABOUT THIS MANIWA.

So I started this one on a whim and was instantly pulled in. However, I will say had I done my due diligence on this work before I started reading it I probably never would have started to begin with.

As far as the story goes I haven't been able to see much better. This is definitely a great work as far as the story goes. It has depth, humor, sorrow and is pretty much the whole package.

This a quick review, because I tend to get emotional and add spoilers to scenes I dislike.

The premise was pretty good, and I was anticipating a very good climax, but then something happened a little past midway of the story. For that reason, I gave it an average rating and dropped it.

The male MC was useless for about 95%, he had his good points, but he was mostly all talk and no action. The best characters of the series was Felicia Rand, and her companions where not that bad, either. I dropped it because of the characters, and seemed like the read more

*IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPOILERS, STOP READING NOW.*

This manga has a medieval setting that is actually set in the future after our current world. The main characters are Felix Maian, Felicia with a long name, 4 out of 11 regis knights, etc. The story is a rather fun adventure type of story that has many events going on... the pace of the story is pretty well controlled, nothing drags out too long or is too short... except the first part's ending I guess... I don't know about others but for me the character developments were good, and when I got to the first part's ending read more
