In a city somewhere on Earth, Philar is an ordinary high school student who usually visits the local game arcade after finishing his studies. One day, however, while at the arcade, hooligans decide to cause trouble that inadvertently involves Philar. To everyone's surprise he fights back; surrounded by some unknown power, he displays incredible fighting skills and easily wins the day. As the rumors spread about Philar, they come to the attention of Lunarena: an assassin sent by Azlar, Prince to Aguilas, to kill the legendary Sun, who he believes may have escaped to Earth. The beautiful Lunarena joins Philar in class posing as a new student. Taking no chances, she attacks Philar vehemently...can he withstand her master swordskills or her psionic powers? Don`t miss this battle!
DEAD-SHOT
Philar is an average high school student. He has no virtually athletic ability and his grades are just so-so. He escapes from his average, ordinary life by playing video games after school. One day, Philar manages to tick off some boys from the Fong Don gang at the video arcade, who proceed to try to beat him into a pulp. Instead of being sensible and running away, Philar decides to fight back. He finds a power deep within him (which, of course, he was not aware of previously), and he manages to bash a couple of the gang members' faces in.

Thus begins an epic manwha as Philar realizes that he is really Philaro, the "Sun," or ruler, from another world whose throne has been stolen by his brother. His brother (as all crazy, power-hungry brothers will do) has sworn to destroy the rightful heir to the throne, and hires none other than Philaro's ex-fiancé to assassinate Philar.

What could have been an exceedingly mediocre first volume is saved by one little quirk: the plotline is your average "magical girl from another world" story (check out From Far Away and InuYasha for examples of this phenomenon), only all the roles are reversed. Philar is the "magical girl from another world" (the equivalent of Kagome in InuYasha) and his ex-fiance, Lunarena, is the "hero-who-first-wanted-to-kill-the-magical-girl-but-then-falls-in-love-with-her" (the equivalent of Izark in From Far Away). There's even a rival for the magical girl's love, who is introduced later in the series.

Other than that reversal of roles, the volume is mediocre at best. The translation by Comics One is poor. The translators seemed to think that commas, semi-colons, exclamation points, and even question marks were optional. Also, Philar is a Korean name? I can turn a blind eye to that oddity, but when someone says that Philaro sounds like "a Western name", the story becomes absurd. So, when you add an "O" to the end, the name suddenly becomes weird and foriegn? I must honestly wonder if Comics One changed all the names to sound "fantasy-ish", since I'm not sure that you can spell most of them in Korean; since I do not speak Korean, I am not 100% certain, though.

The art is passable. Although it's certainly not the greatest art I've ever seen, it's pleasant enough. The author seems to have a fascination with drawing characters half-naked for no reason, though. They'll be fully clothed and in the next panel, most of their clothing will have mysteriously disappeared. I'm not sure whether it's supposed to be symbolic or whether the characters simply feel restricted by their clothing, but it's a bit odd.

Redmoon isn't a bad series. It's worth reading just to see a male magical girl. If you're looking for something a bit unusual and don't mind missing punctuation, you might want to check it out.

*Spoiler Warning*

I got this series about six years ago read it through once. I had to ask a good friend to remove it from my sight. She obligingly took it home and has never burdened me with it's presence since.

The plot starts with classic fantasy elements and progress to a very pedestrian end. I'm really trying to be kind. The art was nothing spectacular, and as stated above, it started with some interesting fantasy ideals and crumbles to a plane crash ending that has nothing to do with any of the previous plot.

Seriously. Spend your money on something else.
