The Everlasting Vol 1 Eye of the Wise
Asura Shirogami joins a magic school recommended by his Master. Only, he doesn’t know how to use magic! After meeting a strange professor and a few friends, Asura accidently finds himself taking part in the Grand Tournament. When a plot to steal research from the strange professor Osfor interrupts the tournament, Asura and his friends end up battling a strong and terrifying creature. This is where Asura discovers how powerful he really is.
The Everlasting was a quick read at only 222 pages! The writing was fast paced and easy to read, without feeling left behind. Asura, the main character was easy to follow, although I found myself liking one of the side characters more, (Shiki) because he had a likable personality where as Asura was quite plain.
Though there wasn’t any illustrations throughout the novel, I didn’t notice until halfway through! Everything was explained nicely, and I was drawn in by the story. There wasn’t a time where Asura’s looks where explained or shown, though, which I would have liked to know. But the rest of the characters where talked about in detail and where a great addition to the protagonist.
Biako has done a great job with The Everlasting being his first light novel! Biako has told me that the story is grander than what’s apparent, and grows to cover worlds and much more! His novel is available on Vic’s lab for only 5.99!

With only a few tid-bits here and there I didn’t like, such as different gods etc., know that it’s my personal opinion and conviction!
RATING: 4/5 RAMEN
