To all manga readers, I have a question. Out of all those stupid chick flicks, japanese school girls, lovey dovey mangas; or the never ending prolonging of the "greats" e.g. naruto, one piece, bleach, ect... dont you sometimes, just sometimes want to read something truly epic! Truly Fantasy with a good well summed up and beautiful endding ( unlike a lot of current mangas, that seem to just leave the story plot hanging). Well this is it.

Im only going to the one review of the whole series, and the

I thought that this was a book started with a really slow beginning. I liked it and I was hooked, but you really have to keep reading to know more about "The Vision". Stories unfold and you will crave to learn more.

This book is the first in a short series of manga. This story revolves around a boy called Wataru, whose only real skill is playing video games.

Plus, the storyline is pretty deep and interesting. One thin ...more

This Manga was absolutely enrapturing! I can't believe how well the battle scenes were drawn! Can't wait to find the next book to read and maybe become a traveler in my dreams! The Manga had many interesting plot twists and i love the magic. I hope this has been turned into an anime so not only can i see the battles in movement and not only beautifully drawn out! Have a good day!

Fun and interesting story, despite the sometimes not so great art. I only paid $1.00 for this, and it was definitely worth that, but I'm not sure I liked it enough to pay much more than that for further volumes. I'll just read the original book this series was based on at some point instead.

Storyline is weird and the characters are very flat. The art isn't very good either.
