Like everyone else here i was drawn to the art. So I thought I would at least like the main guy. I keep expecting him to grow on me and be like this cooler person but he just comes across as an ass. Even when he shows those small sparks of integrity. He just feels like a jerk. I thought that he would be like one of those characters that evolve but he shows no development. Why does he study so hard? Is he number one in his class? Are his math skills so great that they become alchemy? Does he have an ultimate goal, like becoming an elite to afford cure his sister? Maybe it will unfurl itself in later chapters but I'm ten chapters in and hating the main character.
