Good to see an old favorite on WFG

By MaddiroseX, author of Twisted Cogs

Jan 20, 2014: I’ve actually been following Saga of Soul for longer than I’ve known about WFG, so it’s good to see the serial recognized and hopefully get more readers!

At the start it seems like a cliched "Magical Girl" story; a high school girl gains powers (in Japan, no less), and must use them to fight the monster of the week. What makes Saga of Soul different from your typical Magical Girl anime as that the characters are incredibly clever. The heroine applies a scientific mind to her powers right away, and watching the cliches of the genre get blown away by having rationalist characters is an absolute joy to experience.

I would thoroughly recommend Saga of Soul to anyone, but I’d double my recommendation if you’re a fan of (or even have passing acquaintance) with the manga and anime tropes that it lovingly deconstructs. SoS is a very "smart" web serial, in that the reader isn’t just informed that its characters are rational and logical, but we are shown it in every chapter. Powers are used in increasingly inventive ways, and scientific principles are applied ingeniously. Combine that with well written characters, tense political maneuvering, and excellent action sequences, and SoS sticks out to me as one of the best web serials out there.

In a nutshell, Saga of Soul is a fun, humorous, deep, amazing web serial, and I can’t rave about it enough.
