"Stars are just a legend. . ." - Khun


Twenty-Fifth Bam passed Lero Ro's test without even trying, setting off little alarms within the administrator's head. Lero Ro decides not to kick Bam out of the Tower because something interests him about the boy. Bam has gained two new companions since passing the last test maybe with their help he can find Rachel. 


Rak, Khun, and Bam test each other and help one another out even without actively trying to. Their odd dynamic and agreement to be a team will be tested the more they move forward. Pasts are starting to come about as friendly warnings are being stated. Opponents are showing their true colors, the tests are growing more difficult, and so much more.


". . .the world never waits for you to choose an answer." - Han Sung Yu


Bam is making headway through the trails only now he won't have to go it alone. Even if his new teammates aren't fully his friends, Rak seeing him as prey helps to add to the comedy. Bam's determined to get to the top and find Rachel. His mind is set, and he knows what he wants, just getting to the top is going to be a challenge. Tests are growing a little harder as the participants are narrowed down. 


With this installment we get to see more into the background of Khun and why he's such an untrusting young man. He's very sharp and cunning but he holds himself back. Sometimes being too in your head is a dangerous thing. I really enjoyed seeing the balance the unlikely trio gifts one another. None of them fully comprehending it until situations happen and the lightbulb clicks on. I laughed a couple of times at the irony of it all.


Bam's also realizing just how different he is from all the other participants. Trying to keep it a secret that he may possibly be something else because he came from outside the Tower. Everyone around him seeming to have been born and raised within the Tower. You can tell this is going to be a coming-of-age story for Bam. Our innocent and compassionate boy has a long way to go. 


This story is a YA fantasy read. I loved how we get to see other teams and their dynamics alongside Bam's team. I also enjoy how the opponents underestimate one another finding out quickly that was a mistake. Anaak is becoming one of my favorite characters along with Khun. I really cannot wait for the next volume to see the progression of a certain test! Rak is also the best comic relief and I love the way the author has drawn him. Some panels are just hysterical with some of the expressions he makes.


The trials are brutal and some of the combatants die. Bloodshed and violence are present but is censored out or darkened out with shadows. Language is also censored out with symbols but implied. If you watch the anime, be advised that there is language in it and slight gore shown but nothing over the top. This manga doesn't have any nudity or fanservice. 


We do end off with a cliffhanger. If you do not wish to wait for the next installment, then on Webtoon's the next episode is number twenty-two (season one). If you want to watch the anime, then episode 4, almost to the end of the episode, is where the manga leaves off at. But with the anime I think a couple of arcs are being sped up. We do get foreshadowing with this volume along with subtle hints, and I am really excited to see what happens next!


I'm so happy this series is finally being published! Do enjoy the read and don't forget to give the author some stars!
