  1. […] Reign of the Seven Spellblades, Vol. 1 is the first entry to the action-fantasy series where magic and swords mix with demi-humans, insane upperclassmen, and labyrinthian halls to create an exciting life at a magical school.

Classroom bullying, god-like beasts, and certain-death skills are only a fraction of the dangers our characters will face. In this story of learning, investigation, and survival, Bokuto Uno offers exciting battles, dramatic politics, and sweet school-life all in a single package. Beautiful illustrations by Miyuki Ruria then further add to the fantastic and detailed feel of their world. […]
