This manga is basically Yuki Tabata’s attempt in redeeming himself from the short-lived Shonen Jump manga, Hungry Joker.
Debuting in February 2015 on the Weekly Shonen Jump, Tabata’s manga focuses on orphans Asta and Yuno who both aspire to become Magic Emperors. The catch is, there can only be one. The story is somewhat similar to that of Naruto and One Piece in that it concerns the main protagonist – a kid – who wishes to be someone great.
However, Tabata created a refreshing manga that has fantasy, deeply formed history and lore of its own. With Tabata’s excellent panel flow and the artworks for action sequences possessing a sense of motion, it is highly likely that this manga may just be the next best thing!
