    Yep, raw is further away but the scanlator catches up. It is not a jump manga, so it is probably a miracle that a scanlator found it.

    I used search but couldn't find a thread about this manga. That's why I was surprised because this manga is totally great.

    Last chapters were sad. Poor D and Maudlen. I wish he were just stunned/knocked out but it doesn't seem to be the case (not to mention it'd have cheapened drama).

    this is rich.

    it's kjust that tyhe first 6 chapters aren't that good.

    the art is SO much better latter. and it's wayyyyyy too rpgish but still kinda original.

    great read. i'm on chapter 155 abnd going.

    in about 2 hours I'll be in 178 :~~~~~~~~~~~

    happy and sad at same time.

    What a sad way to end part 1. Didn't expect another death so soon.



    P.S. This series needs to be added to Library Index.

    You think Iremi is in love with edermask? She is acting weird somehow, I hope she won't turn into a chicken :( I wonder why Matthew won't turn into a dragon and improve her skills as one. She should be able to control it...

    She obviously is head over heels, I'm in my first love with an older man, phase. I wish Enzu would live a little and enjoy some of the attention all the other women are giving him.

    Don't think I'd be too keen on this manwha if I was reading it weekly, but love it because of the quicker scans.

    I would love to know more about the talking sword. Also, kudos for one man army scans, the guy's a beast, there's always a new chapter to read.

    meh, Iremi is getting on my nerves, she's so spoiled and bratty, someone gotta give her a good spanking.

    That's my biggest issue with Magician: the awful, awful costume designs. Why is Matthew walking around in her undies? Why is Iremi dressed like a jester? And for god's sake, why are all the girls walking around in the wilderness in high heels? Doesn't the author realize how awkward it is when the heels sink straight into mud or gets stuck in rocks? And they're supposed to run around in them?

    This is really too bad because the art really improved with time. If the author had bothered spending a few more hours on costume design, maybe it wouldn't be so grating for me. :( It is pretty unpleasant when most of the art is gorgeous, but most of the time the panels are focused on those ridiculous outfits.

    Luffy would say these are "Magical heels" XD

    Well, I'm more curious what kind of super witch is sealed inside iremi. They were talking about it as if she wouldn't be the same characterwise.

    But I agree, the fashion is at least ugly though I dont really care. There are a lot of secrets to be discovered such as Nastasha's role in this and what happened to the witch before Iremi. Are there any other elves? If there are Elves, are there hobbits and dwarfs as well or even orcs etc.?

    Janus also mentioned their world is bigger than edermask can imagine, so It's really interesting.

    The story is good, the characters are fun and I love the setting, but when I first started reading this a few months ago I thought the artist was drawing this with a paint brush between his toes LOL. The art has improved drastically since it started though. :)

    Anyone turned off by the art style should keep reading for a bit and give it a chance.

    Hope we get some flashbacks once Edermask shows up again! I want to know what the hell happened during that 8 (or was it 6?) year timeskip damnit! :mad

    Man, this shit's awesome, why is there no talk about it? :( More people need to read Magician. And from what I gather, the raws are quite far ahead, so releases seem to be going fast.

    Although Vol. 2 feels to be a bit slow, it's taking its sweet time in setting things up.
    Although we got some interesting characters lined up. Hazel and Pierre are all-around badasses. And I like Phobia, even though she hasn't done anything. Enzu also got some much needed lessons. It's good that the setbacks of solo training were brought up.

    ^ Yeah, he's beast. Too bad he had to go so fast. :(
    Actually, Enzu really doesn't have any luck, does he? His dad died, D died, Time died, Eder went off without the group... I don't sense a good future for Hazel.

    And at first I didn't really catch the connection between Pierre and Huan. Even when he mentioned the 3 eyes. Totally slipped my mind.

    ... Why exactly.

    From the moment Pierre showed his power I immediately connected it to Huan. It had to be, was just too similar. Was nice to get a little background on the eyes as well... I wonder if Huan's eyes fixated on Janus?

    It seems like the most likely explanation.
    Though there's also how exactly this whole thing works. Like what criteria their eyes have when they choose an owner. From the way Pierre's talked, it can't be based on how people of their race feel about that person.

    It's possible Huan's eyes don't have an owner yet and he's following Janus because he threatened him, knowing how powerful the 3-eyed ones (their race really needs to be named) are. Maybe Enzu will be Huan's owner if that's the case. :awesome Though maybe it'd be predictable?

    True would be funny (the part about Enzu)... I just came to that conclusion as I remembered the panels where Time was messing with him. The whole dialogue of: "Is Janus a handsome guy? You know I am handsome too." He seemed to get a bit pissed about it.

    It could be for a lot of reasons. Could be as to why he's following Janus, or it could be that he was ticked off at his opponent casually making small talk. Until we get something definite on Huan, it could be anything.

    And that's also one of the many reasons Time is awesome. :lmao Speaking of, I just can't pronounce his name as Ti-Meh. It's not physically possible for me.

    Honestly, I've grown pretty fond of Iremi's messy hair. It looks nice on her.

    And the newest chapter wasn't really all that. Just them revealing what we already saw and talking even more about how creepy he is. And I'm not really that used to Korean honorifics so the making fun of Enzu felt too long.

    Still interested why there was an granny maid in the mansion of Lord Loli.

    I chuckled a little at that part. Being exposed to different K-dramas does that to you. Basically, it's a Korean thing. Only females use Unni to address an older female, but Enzu screwed up and used Unni too instead of Noonim. :lmao

    Yeah, I'm familiar. The scanlators made sure to put explanations at several chapters, including this one, but I suppose I haven't had enough exposure to Korean works to find it amusing. A shame too, it looked fun. :maybe

    Start of a new... arc thing. I don't know how to call them. I like these releases every day. :awesome

    [sp]So it looks like shit's finally about to get real.
    The exposition of the relationship between the two parties was nice enough, though I'm more itching to get some action done. Hazel following Iremi's critiques was just... :lmao

    And I didn't notice before whether the kid needed a crutch to move. Normally, people with peg legs are shown to move about with no real problem. It's a rather nice touch. Unless it's because of an injury apart from the missing leg.[/sp]

    Well, this is the 'Iremi is badass' Arc-thing. Sadly she doesn't shine as much in V2, mostly because she sort of take up Eldermask' old role of 'utterly overpowered' so she has to let Enzu play around a bit.

    Still, good to see her letting loose a bit :)

    I really spoiled myself with everything after last chapter. I invited a Korean friend over and let her translate the chapters from Naver.

    Do I love the progression? I have to say, YES I DO.

    But she doesn't like webtoons :(

    What I don't like is the Iremi's "Edermask Disease" or that's how I call it. But that will all change ... in 30 chapters :giogio

    And, yeah, it was established quite a while that Iremi is a fucking monster, it was inevitable that she'd grow in power.
