Hi So i go this manga as part of a secret santa from an anime club back in middle school.

The cover was full red with a picture of the main character on the front and it was the first issue. It was about a young man who is commissioned to escort an archaeologist to a dig site. The man has powers and is why he is hired. They have to go through the forest to get to the cave and when they get there they eventually find out the head archaeologist is evil and wanted the item in the dig to rule the world. The item ends up being a giant stone lion which the main character defeats. I an unsure what the characters "powers" are because I want to say he had an item on his arm that was powerful but I might be taking that from S-Cry-Ed. That is really all i can remember that happens in the first book, the girl he was escorting has tension and attraction between them, he tries to sneak a peek at her in the spring she was bathing in, but he does save her in the end.

The last pages are of a ominous person that is the leader of the evil guys that is either watching the events or is being reported to.

If this rings a bell with anyone please help me this has been driving me crazy for years because I have no idea what happened to that manga book i had. Also it was in english if that wasnt already implied.

Sounds like MAR Marchen Awakens Romance to me. Was a really good anime too.

No Sorry this is not it. I have seen MAR before and it is a good anime. The character had more of a grown look compared to MARs child like appearance

Possibly O-Parts Hunter? I've never read it myself, but based on your description it might be

After a quick keyword search, I came across this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_Keaton
Episode 6 list states this: "Keaton meets Anna in Scilly Islands in England, who is protecting an archaeological site all by herself." Possibly the the fact that you had it long ago you forgot some details. It says the MC is the archaeologist.
