Created by Lady Sakuya, the Goddess of Attunement, "Samsara," is the endless cycle of death and rebirth between the worlds of Atoma—modern-day Earth—and Gulgraf, a fantasy-like land. Upon death, a soul is reincarnated into the other world with no memories of their past life.

An untimely plane crash in Atoma results in the death of middle school student Yachiyo Hitotose. But instead of being reborn, she awakens in Gulgraf—memories and body intact—and is proclaimed the reincarnation of Lady Sakuya. Plagued by vicious creatures known as "Blau," the people of Gulgraf rely on those who wield "Nidana," 12 pieces of Lady Sakuya's power which have been passed down through her followers' familial lines. Through the use of a keepsake from her mother, Yachiyo can temporarily fuse with Nidana holders, accessing the power known as "Nirvana."

However, with Yachiyo's arrival, foes who have awaited Lady Sakuya's return begin moving once again. Unable to turn her back on those in need, Yachiyo—accompanied by Nidana holder Mar Barae—sets out to unite the remaining Nidana holders in order to protect the people of Gulgraf.

It should be stated first that I have a bit of bias—I am a big fan of Jin, the creator of Kagerou Project and co-creator of Nirvana. Despite this, I did not go into this story expecting much. And that's exactly what I got—not much.

In the afterward of volume 1, Sayuki says that they set out to make a typical shounen but with one catch—the main character is a girl. So this story is basically an isekai story, except without the harem and less RPG elements. Of course, as with most isekai stories, we have the main character with unique and special powers (bonus isekai read more

Nirvana is a shoujo manga that attempts to recreate a typical shounen manga feel. Does it work? Sorta...Well, first, let me explain the plot. Young girl dies on a plane crash, gets reincarnated in another world...typical isekai stuff. The catch is that the enemies of this world use transformations to terrorize the people. So our main heroine must stop it. The story is fast, fun, and energetic. The heroes travel to foreign lands, and the art is gorgeous, with a good look. It is certainly reminiscent of Magi, with a world based off a foreign culture and with tons of adventure. A solid read if read more
