Summary said:
Sixteen-year-old Emma finally arrives at the capital city Hawk Eye after escaping from being held captive for her entire life. But as soon as she arrives, every man in the city, including the king, falls madly in love with her. She is about to be forced into marriage, but is saved by a sorcerer. The sorcerer identifies himself as Shion, one of the youngest and most talented in the nation. They have met before, but Emma has no recollection.

Shion explains to Emma that she is cursed with the Ekidona, a mysterious magic that happens every 500 years where a girl is born with her heart packed with such powerful dark magic that it has the potential to destroy the world. With such power, one could rule the world, and Shion explains to Emma that people are going to try and hunt her down to get her heart. However, Emma is told that there exists a ritual that will rid her of the Ekidona curse but doing so will require a long and arduous process. The first of that being Emma and Shion will have to marry each other...

It started either late last year or early this year. 32 chapters so far, and personally I'm in love with this series. It's just downright adorable and epic. A great breath of fresh air admist all the yaoi cannon fodder shounens. Seriously, me likey this one. :D

I like this manga. This most recent arc is exactly what the series needed. It's creative and brings some interesting revelations with it. The first couple of short arcs was a decent hook, but I found the middle ones a bit lackluster (especially the three brothers, which I thought tried to treat itself like an arc that had already been built up to, even though it definitely hadn't). The biggest potential pitfall is just that: Poor pacing/build up. Still, as long as they don't try to force too much in this recent arc, it should continue to be a really enjoyable read.

New chapter came out. :) Nice read IMO.

I liked the flashback of the previous Echnida at the start of the chapter and that sweet moment between Emma and Shion was great. :3

New Magico chapters are out. My God I couldn't stop laughing they were so funny.

ROFL, making babies, can't wait till they have "the talk" that'd be freakin hilarious.

Read the new chapter last night and the short mini-Christmas Special too. I seriously LOVE this series. Very unique for a shounen series to actually be 'romance-based' with the whole theme revolving around the concept of marriage and also the idea of family.

Seriously, the bit in the new chapter where Shion's brother shows his jealousy and anger at Shion actually making a family was pretty cool. It's refreshing to see a series where such reaction isn't stemmed from 'being stronger' or other typical shounen cliches, and instead based in the very real jealousy of having a loving 'family'.

Well its not that unique for there to be a romance in a Shounen series, I mean hell in Jump currently theres a new series called Nisekoi which is a romantic comedy.

Nonetheless, love Magico.

Shion is a boss and Faust is cool. But I'm really interested in that secret group of mages running around...

Really now? Hadn't heard of that one. I'll have to look into it. :) Still romantic shounen is less frequent than friendship shounen, correct?

Yes, it's pretty awesome. :D

In the great wide somewhere~
Topic of Discussion to bring the thread back: Shion's family.

Both the blood relatives and the new family he's built. :3 What do you guys think of all of them?

I just wanna say that Shion's brother and mom are insane. o3o And that Emma and Luu make a very cute wife and daughter...
