Years ago, in the country of Sei'O, a plague spread and turned half of their population to stone. The children of those infected were born with skin abandoned of all color. Completely grey, they were known as Plague Children.

Though they possessed no ability to spread the plague, they were heavily mistreated, discriminated against, ostracized, and often times killed at their younger ages.

The story follows the young Plague Child Ora, as he gains one of the strongest relics the world would ever come to see. With it, everything changes with relative ease. What fate awaits this world that heavily mistreated Ora?

In this world of magic, relics, and ancient arts, no one could be certain.

Not good, but also not bad (Up to chapter 25


- unique setting

- interesting power system

- mostly accurate grammar


- unnecessary Japanese honorifics that are strewn randomly throughout the story without reason or explanation

- stilted / stiff dialogue at times

- occasional tense change and missing punctuations

- absurdly powerful MC (could be a pro for some)

- incomprehensible / illogical decision-making by all of the depicted people in power

  • Overall Score

Early days with only four whole chapters up but impressive.

Always a sucker for a well rounded magic system the story uses the standard "items with powers" theme to great effect. Some nice world building. It even has downsides to the use of said magic items.

There are a couple characters that are wonderfully deep with only four chapters, and rather a lot of the background mentions obviously will get more time as the plot unfolds.

absolutly worth following.

Literally one of the most well-crafted stories I've read on here. The characters all contain such depth to them.

Though I can't say I particularly liked the first three chapters, I'm glad I continued through the story. The first Arc's plot was exceedingly impressive. I'd definitely recommend reading- you won't be able to put it down.

Wannabe shounen anime

This is a shounen anime wanabe. Like Bleach, or Naruto. It started grim dark, but soon transformed into high school fighting tournament. 

The writing quality is quite bad. Numerous grammatical errors. Frequent pronoun mistakes. Read up to chapter 10 and I'm still not sure if a character is a guy or a girl. Some parts the author refers to it as a he, sometimes as a she. Fight scenes are confusing. Sometimes the names get swapped, and the confusion is maximized.

Talking about fight scenes, they are really poorly done. Baddies await their turn to be beaten by the heroes. Bodies fly for 30 feet. When fights happen, everybody groups in teams of conveniently equal size.

Immersion is broken again when a bunch of malnourished homeless orphans are also conveniently in possession of combat grade relics. They also manage to put up a fight against an elite army special forces squad, that outnumbers them, and heavily outgears them. 

I couldn't get past that point, and then quit

Wow! Literally one of the most ecstatic books I've had the chance of reading. The world building is already unique and genius in it's own rite. 

So far in the chapters we have a pretty good story of the world history, and introduction to new unique characters (love Regalt).

Weapons and power system is balanced, but there been a lot of hints towards OP shit about to go down. 

On another note, this shit is a tragedy... I feel for some of them.
