Looked down upon for only possessing two skills, Reckledam has given up on his childhood dream of becoming a warrior and has instead taken a job as a miner to support his chronically ill brother. But when his boss calls upon him to help defeat a monster rampaging deep in the mines, the people who mocked him learn that Reckledam hasn't merely learned the two skills he possesses, he's MASTERED them. Can he be persuaded to rekindle his dream and use his superior talents for the good of the world?
I'm actually really sad that the artist for this manga hasn't worked on anything else; the art is both rather unique, especially for manga, and incredibly well done. It it fully colored throughout, and despite only having flat colors, the linework provides more than enough details and shading. The only shortcoming is the faces sometimes look a tad awkward, but other than that, this is worth it for the art alone. The story itself is kinda generic (SPOILERS AHEAD). Protagonist is born with an apparently lacking natural ability, and so is bullied/overlooked by everyone he meets. Angry asshole of a bully, terminally sick family member he has to care for, absent parents, shitty job, it's like a blend between tropes of shounen and another world/reincarnation setup. The main things that keep it interesting is that the MC doesn't become the strongest/best overnight; he works harder than most others for the better part of a decade, and does become skilled in a standar timeframe (rather than bullshit growth rates and/or demon powers most similar protagonists gets), and despite being very strong, he has a lot of trouble from both his personal issues, as well as the fantasy equivalent of job hunting without a contact or job experience, so that his struggles and reasons for not becoming a hero young feel real. So while it is somewhat generic, it is well done. TLDR: it's only 24 chapters, and the story is finished well, so just go ahead and give it a read.
Meister was a pretty good manga, but it feels like it has a lot of untapped potential. I like the art style, the story wasn't bad, it wasn't revolutionary or anything but it kept me entertained. The characters aren't super fleshed out, but they're good enough. It feels like when you read the first season of a manga and then you're waiting for the next season to come out, but I know it's never coming. It has a lot of potential, so I'd definitely keep reading it if the author picked it up again, but then again it came out in 2016.
