how did u all think about the first season?.. would a 2nd season in anime do well as the previous 1? the manga came out in sept '06. its now in its 3rd volume.

The story started 6 years after the second War Games, about Kai, the adoptive son of an ÄRM smith from Harnau City in MÄR Heaven, who idolizes Ginta and Babbo for defeating Phantom at the end of the 2nd War Games. He always wants a good ÄRM for himself, which is often ridiculed by others since Kai possesses no potential whatsoever of magic power, much to his personal dislike, since at the time throughout MÄR-Heaven ÄRMs are already in wide use (especially a new type called fake ÄRMs, activated without the need of magic power), and Kai himself inherited a magic stone from his dead parents, a memento highly suggested his family's relation to the sorcerers' kingdom Kaldea.

When Kai was delivering ÄRMs to another city, he walked past a mountain and suddenly got attacked by a remnant of the Chess Pieces. While searching for cover from the Chess guy's wind Nature ÄRM, Kai jumped into a pond and woke up the most unthinkable underwater resident - Babbo. Using the ÄRM Kai defeated the Chess guy, one amazing yet inexplicable feat: how was he, a normal boy, be able to fight with the ÄRM up til then wieldable to only two persons, both warriors of legend, Ginta and Phantom?

Leaving the question hanging, the two returned to Kai's city, only to find themselves in an even tighter situation: among those who came to admire Babbo, there are Kai's fake ÄRM user friends, and they were all out to take Babbo - to bring it to a sinisterly mysterious figure who was watching them the whole time. With the emergency arose, Kai had no choice but to resort to his last option - put the magic stone he owned into Babbo, and forth reborn to the world of MÄR-Heaven the most powerful Guardian recognized, Gargoyle.

Gargoyle easily defeated the guardians and returned their owners' consciousness, but then it was Kai's turn to face trouble with his ÄRM: he lost contact with Babbo inside Gargoyle, and the monster would have savaged the whole town if not for the timing restrain from Alviss with his familiar 13 Totem Poles attack, allowing Kai enough time to regain synchronization with Babbo, returning him to normal.

Saving everyone no time to ponder on what'd happened, the Cross Guard's young warrior's unexpected arrival brought an even more unexpected truth: those fake ÄRM all used so at their own ease didn't, indeed, require a proper amount of magic power from the users, but it sucked from them a worse fuel - their life energy, and through that, their minds could be controlled like a puppet dancing to death. Then why were they so popular ? Why hadn't anyone noticed their dangerous properties ? And more importantly, who made them ? All were never answered, however, as the one controlling everyone took a sudden desperate move to seal the town except Alviss, Kai, Babbo and Kai's female friend Elise, introducing himself. Although he was easily defeated by Kai and Alviss, the town couldn't be returned, and for that they had to consult Kaldea - birthplace of all ÄRMs and magic users.

In Kaldea, they were welcomed by Dorothy and a new male character, named Inga into the Grand Elder's palace. All answers for their questions were ready, coming down to a legend descending the magic kingdom for 300 years: the fake ÄRMs were not actually the work of many sorcerers, but rather, only one's - the dark magician with infamy for his experiments of human mind manipulation, went by the name of Unwetter. Babbo - the Elder of Kaldea in his time - confronted the man and succeeded in consigning he and his malicious creations into oblivion, just before Babbo himself died, transferring his soul into the ÄRM and erasing every memory related to that accident. It's unknown for the Grand Elder himself, however, as to why the supposedly sealed fake ÄRMs were once again spread throughout MÄR-Heaven now, how the supposedly dead Unwetter could be revived, and what purpose would be served with the claiming of Babbo. Either way, until these riddles could be solved, Babbo would be taken into custody, which, of course, met with Kai's disagreement.

Relented, the wizard postponed the deal with Babbo... only if Kai could prove himself worthy of wielding it, inside Dorothy's training Dimension ÄRM with Inga's witness. They were not disappointed, however, as when facing with danger of death, Kai suddenly unleashed all his dormant magic power - which was so powerful that it did not only confirm his relation to the magic kingdom, but also suggest a direct blood connection to Babbo. No sooner when they discovered that than the fake ÄRM users presented themselves before Kaldea, to continue the accomplishment of their objective: take Babbo back to their master Unwetter.

Kai and crew are able to fight them back with the assistance of Inga. Inga is a descendant of Unwetter and by following Kaldea's law he must seek Unwetter out and kill him. Kai then finds out that he truly is a descendant of Babbo. Kai, Inga, and Elise all volunteer to go and find Babbo's magic stones which would restore his memories of the Grand Elder who fought fake arms and Unwetter 300 years prior to the story. The three are sent to Luberia to start their quest where they are to be helped by Nanashi (Dorothy says she'll help).


Characters

Kai

An ÄRMsmith's fosterling who admires Ginta for his deeds in the 2nd MÄR-Heaven war. He always wants an ÄRM as powerful as Babbo, but is capable of using none, as commented by his foster father, for his character is too hesitant. It later turns out Kai has very strong magical power, suggestive of his ancestral relation to the wizards. It is later revealed that he is the son of Babbo, makes him able to wield Babbo.

Babbo

The legendary ÄRM in the first two MÄR-Heaven war, wielded by captain of MÄR, Ginta. Ever since the 2nd war concluded, he's been traveling around searching for Ginta, and ended up sleeping in a lake until Kai wakes him up. Babbo has no magic stone inserted, so it can not transform into his previous versions. However, Babbo has new versions:

* Version 1: "Needle Work": A centaur with a lance.
* Version 2: "Hornet": A hornet that can separate to three parts.
* Version 3: "Karadrio": A harpy that has healing powers.
* Version 4: "Baron": A human type wearing an Oni mask. Does unarmed combat.
* Version 5: "Behemoth": A hippopotamus that can swallow everything.
* Version 6: A absolute-defense turtle.
* Version 7: "The Snow Queen": A Snow Queen.
* Version 8: "Omega Gargoyle": Babbo's old Version 3, Gargoyle that combine with Omega System.

Elisa

Kai's friend and also one of the sole escapees after the fake ÄRM user's attack on Kai's village, beside Kai himself. She's a cheerful, sweet girl, and promises to protect Kai in time of danger since he doesn't have an ÄRM for defense, which annoys Kai non-stop.

Leon

Kai's friend, but one always has a bone to pick with the other, either by Leon teasing Kai for not having an ÄRM, or claiming himself for being stronger than Ginta, Kai's hero.

Alviss

Former member of Team MÄR. After the 6 years interval of the two series, he's joined the Cross Guard, and is currently investigating the mystery of fake ÄRMs.

Dorothy

Also a former member of Team MÄR, and had a crush on Ginta. She tests Kai's worthiness to wield Babbo in her own version of the Training Gate. She also seems to share a bond with Inga.

Inga

Full name Inga Reed Unwetter, this young wizard boy is the descendant of Unwetter. One of his ARM is a scythe-type weapon.

Nanashi

Currently Kai, Elise and Inga have been transported to Luberia the thieves guild. There they meet with none other than Nanashi, and Nanashi alone. It seemed that everyone else had ran away due to the attacks from the fake ARM. Nanashi ends up joining with the group and protects them while they search for Babbo's first memory.

I haven't read it yet but most anime's that have a sequel after they end, its mostly just the same thing again only in a different form...MAR was a good anime, so I hope the sequel will be just as good or even better. Don't fail me MAR Omega, I have high hopes for you. I'll watch it when it comes out as a anime...if that ever happens O.o (Yay~ At least Alviss is in the sequel *cough* Not that that matters too much or anything...*cough*) Oh, and can you read it online without download?

Edit: vv Thanks~
