    The backgrounds, the character design, the way it uses the frames to zoom in and out of objects and people; the way the expressions are so vivid... everything about the art is awesome. Also, the setting and script between the characters are done very well to say the least. Growing up into adulthood comes with so many complicated emotions, and all of these are presented magnificently. The only bad thing I could say is the somewhat awkward translation into English, especially during the philosophical moments of the manhwa. Seriously, I could not stop reading this after I started. I was honestly a little disappointed with some of the manhwa on the website but this one totally rocks my socks.

    As expected the series was pretty funny with lots of fan service. Mostly being about adolescence and insecurities that all guys have to win over in order to grow up. I liked the ending because it shows that both the girl and the guy had grown up out of their puberty into adulthood. The outlook of the characters at the end was positive and hopeful.

    This short series starts out like any other adolescent boy manhwa with lots of ridiculous situations with girls (like a super-hot one appearing before them as his "slave"). Not too exciting. But after the first volume it turns into an action-packed and glorious story of having loved and having it ripped away. Themes of growth, guilt, anguish, loneliness, revenge, and love are carefully woven into the story that makes this manhwa remind me of classics such as Akira and Monster.

    For me, this one had a similar feeling to that of manhwa you see in Korean newspapers. It has a generic storyline with gangsters, sex and the the theme of honor. I think an interesting thing to note was the whole Korean/Japan rivalry going on. Despite the typical story and background, this manhwa is still pretty fun to read. All in all, it has a very old school feeling to it that's always enjoyable.

    I'm not used to the soonjung manhwa style art so I was reluctant to read this one. I feel like the expressions of the characters' faces are too calm all the time, seemingly unaffected by what's actually going on. But I understand that this is a mere style that I am not used to.
    My bigger qualm about this manhwa is the cliches of "adventure" genre manhwa that are presented and never developed. The main character, Lazarus is a genius and a jerk. This being one of the many main character cliches is not bad in itself. It's just that this is presented so strongly with nothing happening to the character.
    I believe cliches, especially in manhwa, are not avoidable. However, there is nothing changing with the conflicts of each chapter. Only new ones are presented. There is a big deal about a prophecy. Lazarus is stronger than everybody else and can't be controlled. By the way, people in his clan hate the Feras' clan. Oh, and did I mention that Lazarus needs to be clan cheif?
    There is a huge backstory that the characters talk about. But the emphasis is solely on discussing the way the society is set up and the technical things about the different magics as Lazarus and the Feras learn the opposing two.
    Which, along with other things, are very lame and meaningless. They're deciding on levels? How is that set up? Who decides that? Okay, so these people are really good magic. What? Lazarus is an Heir of the sun too? But I thought he was all into Dark magic? Dang all of a sudden they like each other and she's going to be lonely? There are too many complications of the story that have no purpose.
    This "adventure" manhwa is boring to say the least.
