I review so that I can remember atleast a little bit of the story. I tend to forget easily. Also, I curse a lot and my reviews are just my preference.

Also, one thing you could do is to buy the French versions from Amazon or somewhere else. The you could translate them while reading with an app. I don't know what's the name of it but you know, nowadays it's possible to translate things just by using phone camera.

Sorry that this took so much time. First of all, you had read the manga til the part were Raven was introduced. Well, yeah, Mana is shot, but the arrow is a magic arrow, so she doesn't die. Instead, she fells under a spell where her consciousness is awake but she can't move and she looks unconscious. Lancelot first thinks she's dead but then notices that she's still breathing. Then he starts carrying Mana. They find a weird house where a weird old man tells them that there's only one way to undo the spell: Lancelot has to bring dew that's on a flower that grows at the mountain close to the house. Lancelot leaves and Mana is still under the spell. While she's in the house the old man starts to talk to her and says something about that Lancelot’s heart is not fully “human”. Since he was raised by water elves.

The plot continues by showing both the normal world and Avalon. They find more and more Avalon counterpart of people they know in the normal world.

One of the biggest plot twists is that Chihiro’s ex-girlfriend Fey comes from England to meet Chihiro. Their relationship seems to be very odd.

At some point they find out that the girlfriend’s doppelganger in Avalon is, no one else than Morgan Le Fey, the queen of fairies. They also find out that Lancelot is stuck in Avalon because she put a curse upon him. They also find out that Raven is actually King Arthur. And in the Legend of Arthur, Morgan Le Fey is actually half-sister of Arthur. And since Arthur’s real world look-alike is Chihiro, it is revealed that Fey is actually Chihiro’s half-sister. His parents got divorced just before Chihiro was born. They had started dating in England and then Fey introduced Chihiro to her father. Which was also Chihiro’s father. Ouch.

They also reveal the reason why and how Lancelot got the curse. In his past, when Lancelot still lived in Camelot, King Arthur used to be in a war against Morgan Le Fey. Lancelot fell under Le Fey’s spell and because of that, he ended up killing Agravain, Gareth and Gaheris, three of the knights of Camelot and his respected friends. Not only that, he wounded King Arthur himself deadly. But instead of killing him normally, Le Fey turned Arthur into a red rose and took him away. That’s why Arthur is now Raven, and also under the curse of Avalon (in one version of the Arthurian legend, King Arthur turns into a raven after his death). Also, the strange old man, who helped to undo Mana’s curse, is Merlin, who followed (?) Arthur to Avalon. Arthur also gives Mana and Lancelot his sword Excalibur (which is in a dagger form, because magic).

In the final volume, Chihiro comes with them to Avalon. He helps them in the end, when there is a great battle between Mana’s crew and Morgan Le Fey. In the end, Morgan Le Fey’s own magic turns against her. She had borrowed her magic from an elf-like creature. She had promised to give the elf creature anything it wants. The elf thingy wanted her as his wife. So yeah, Morgan Le Fey is turned into a similar elf-thingy. What we also find out is that Lancelot has an adult form (which apparently is his true form). He is finally free from the curse.

Mana fixes her relationship with Fey. Fey says farewell to Chihiro and travels back to England.

In the end, Mana is almost going to stay in Avalon with Lancelot (they like each other, obviously), but Chihiro opposes that. Lancelot travels back to Camelot. It is implied that he might this time confess his feelings for Guinnevere openly, even if it would mean opposing his king.

A really messy summary, sorry about that.

It's been a while since I read it, so please wait, I'll try to borrow it from a library and re-read the last volume! (^-^)

Well, before spoiling, you don't happen to speak French? Because it seems like it has been published in France.

The manga was published in Finnish, so I read the Finnish version. Sorry.
