This seems like a neat story, however it additionally sounds quite a bit like Inuyasha’s preliminary premise. That collection had its eponymous protagonist and Kagome journey throughout Japan searching for the Shikon Jewel shards. If Ginka & Glüna continues to resemble Inuyasha, then it might give a basic thought of the place the story goes.

It’d end up that Ginka and the magician who stole his physique are associated, perhaps even by blood. There are many potential plot threads that would flip into one thing straight out of Inuyasha.

One other potential mind-set about all of that is the way it may truly be following fashionable Shōnen Bounce tendencies.

His moments of deep contemplation and his unmoving expression are additionally paying homage to Korosensei from Assassination Classroom. If Ginka & Glüna finally ends up extra like one in all these collection, then it might take a darkish flip and reveal that Ginka is the final word villain of the collection. Contemplating the pretty gentle tone of the primary two chapters, this hopefully will not occur.

In any case, Ginka & Glüna guarantees to be an entertaining learn in its personal proper. The characters, motion, world-building, and sense of surprise are all top-notch.
