Meet Lizel, a nobleman who finds himself in a city that looks like his.. but isn’t. He decides to stay calm and enjoy the time off. Yep. The premise to this manga sounds amazing and of course I had to click the Read Now.
From the start I loved Lizel. How calm he was, how he didn’t waver or panic despite how people looked at him. I loved how he inventorized his situations and decided to get some items by selling some of his things. How he calmly went looking for information and people to trust. It was actually quite hilarious how calm Lizel was. Nothing fazed him and I could already see the direction this story would be going and I was very eager for it.
I loved how he asked Gil all the questions and adapted to life at the town/world. Of course, still determined to get back, but why not relax first. 😛 He is really laid-back it seems, though I wonder if it is all an act or not (we do get some hints later on, which made me happy and excited, Lizel in serious mode is just swoons).
I had such a big laugh at how Lizel was in the mornings, or I should specify, when it is high time he gets out of bed.
Gil was another fantastic character, oh and totally my type. 😛 He has ego, but I also could see he was actually quite friendly inside. I was curious to see why he was only rank B, why he went solo, and oh yes, why his nickname. Thankfully, the mangaka gives us all the answers.
Oh, and is it bad that I totally shipped Gil and Lizel together? They just had some kind of chemistry going on and also their banter and chats. Squee!
I loved seeing the town, see how one becomes an adventurer (though it seems to be the same as many other books featuring adventurers), I love seeing the monsters, and oh yes the weapons. Lizel seems to have quite a fancy one. And we meet new people!
The art was just fabulous, I really liked the style of it, plus the expressions on characters faces was just hilarious and great. I often had quite a laugh about it.
All in all, this volume features Lizel’s first month in his new surroundings and I had a lot of fun reading it, before I knew it the volume was over. Argh, I cannot wait for the next volume. I would recommend this one to all in search for a calm, peaceful, magical read featuring a very chill protagonist.
Also, this is so me:
