Gilgamesh (Hwan Daeng)

Tludia was on her way to become a Knight within the Order when she was unexpectedly kicked out for breaking too many weapons and – wait for it – eating too much. But that doesn’t mean she should stand idly by when she witnesses an old man about to be attacked by a band of robbers. Luckily for her – because she was a second too late – the old man did not need saving. It’s Tludia that needs saving. Much older than his appearance suggests, Tludia rekindles a long lost memory in him, and he decides to repay her for her efforts by finding a cure for her disease (with promises of food, of course). Thus begins their journey to bring life to one, and long-awaited peace to the other.

The story itself is great! The world-building is Top tier. Though the pacing seems a bit slow and the first chapters were tough to get through but I don't regret it in any way. Don't be fooled by the first 10 chapters though. This story is dark, chock-full of regret and longing. Not everyone will get a happy ending, and not everyone who will get one will deserve it. but that's just life, and the author knows it well.  (one thing I didn't like was that the power system was weird to figure out. One character could be one of the strongest knights in the whole manga but you wouldn't know because you had nothing to compare them too other than their opponents and in the beginning, it was hard to differentiate strong from weak.) The art isn't anything special but it isn't bad in any way. You can clearly tell how the characters are feeling by their expression without trouble and each character is unique. But that scene is beautiful without a doubt, the goosebumps I got...  Characters are a 10/10. they all get development, they move for their own goal and not so that the plot can move forward. And most of all, they seem human. Regret, longing, love, and desperation are all present. I understood why characters felt the way they did. they were their own person with their own motives, personalities, and principles. and it wasn't just a copy and paste of the stereotypical characters like "strong but kind mc" and "weak person trying to get stronger" with different flavoring. Overall, Gilgamesh is an 8/10 (2 points taken off for the slow pacing and power system) please give it a try! and if you like Gilamesh then you should check out Them Ember Knight, the sequel to Gilamesh, which has all of Gilamesh's strengths and even improved the problems I listed in the 2d para!)
