SUPER CATCHING AND WELL WRITTEN

Really great and engaging dialogue and action scenes, it's hard to write fight scenes but the author manages to pull it off incredibly well. I also appreciate how exposition and world building isn't shoved down the reader's throat but introduced in a natural way. You actually made me interested in the lore, good job. Even though demons as a concept can at first seem overdone, Canticle manages to put it's own fresh spin on it. I also really enjoy all the characters (especially Kishin, I hope to see more of him) and the main character Mura is just the right amount of goofy and snarky. There's a perfect mix of seriousness and witty dialogue to keep me entertained through every chapter. Definitely worth a read!

Pretty good start so far! This is only for the first 3 chapters, but I really could see this as an anime or something similar. The lore is very deep and interesting and I like the differing character perspectives every chapter! Great job!

God, can I just say how much I hate Belial? Can he die please? Ok!

Everything seems really cool and solid, especially once you reach Chapter 3! I'm curious with the first chapter taking place in the future, since apparently it'll take 12 years before things get that messed up? But if you like demons and magic and amazing fight scenes and descriptions, check this out!
