Oh, better and better! Sasara, disguised as Tatara, redisguised as Sasara (lol) strikes out on her own in classic martyrdom fashion so as not to endanger her surviving loved ones. Ageha is apparently famous as a dancing girl - I do love a man who knows how to make himself pretty. I was surprised to learn he was a slave, since he was called 'The Blue Noble', but that just adds so much more depth and mystery to his character - he's fast becoming my favorite! I don't know what to make of Shuri, whe ...more

My Thoughts:

In this volume, Sarasa travels by land and sea to seek freedom for her village and revenge for her murdered family. Captured in battle after witnessing the terrifying spectacle of a massacred village, Sarasa learns that violence, intrigue, and even romance rule this postapocalyptic fantasy world.

My Thoughts:

Sarasa is on her own when this volume starts out. After failing to kill the Red King in the last volume, she decides that she must continue on alone because she doesn't want to lo

Semua di bahas tuntas di review volume 2 ini.

Nah inilah jadinya kalau seseorang seperti saya mementingkan cover diatas segalanya. Saya jadi nggak jeli dengan isi dari komik yang panjangnya ada 27 volume ini.

Setelah mencicipi volume 1, bisa dibayangkan betapa besarnya penyesalan sekarang karena baru aja tau kalo komik ini SANGAT BAGUS.

Sasara yang berubah dengan kesadaran sendiri menjadi Tatara, seorang perempuan berumur 16 tahun yang menguatkan diri dengan tujuan membalaskan dendam desanya yan

I'm much less hopeful about this manga's potential after reading the second volume and significantly less eager to read the next 25 volumes. I'm pretty sure I can see where the course is set and how everything will work out in the end, but I hope to be surprised. I'm a little irked that the Red King is being made out to be a misunderstood victim, as if his actions can be justified or forgiven. I like him ruthless, it's more interesting. Volume two revealed that there is going to be quite a bit o ...more

So, the story continues as Sarasa leaves home to seek the bearers of the other three swords. I enjoyed seeing how Sarasa handled the tunnel, because it showed that she was able to keep calm under pressure and use some smarts. I approve of that in a character.

For that matter, the villains also seem to be smart about dealing with a 'Boy of Destiny'. In the first volume, we had some traps, many of which Sarasa only partially escaped. Here, she manages to only escape with the help of Ageha, and the

This is a strange series for me. I don't really like the art, but the story is pretty good even if it tends to drag a bit and go overboard on characters being angsty. Every time when I wonder why the hell I even bother with this series, something cool happens. But that usually doesn't last long (for me at least). Really don't know what to think of this series yet.

A great installment as Tatara/Sarasa learns more and decides her place in the rebellion. (well, that's a continual effort). The new characters are nice to have. Sarasa and Shuri are cute once again, making it the more happy yet tragic part of the entire story.
