A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special (귀환자의 마법은 특별해야 합니다) Manhwa Review


A review of A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special which is also known as Магия вернувшегося должна быть особенной. It is an action-fantasy which is created by author Jeon Sun-Wook and gives the reader an immersion into a world of magic which revolves around parallel worlds. It is quite enjoyable to read and has an amazing storyline as well. It’s a must read if you like action, adventure and fantasy!

The manhwa follows our protagonist, Desir Arman, who we initially see defeat a monster with his party in the Shadow World. He and his comrades believe they have completed the given task, however, it all goes south and not according to plan. Desir then finds himself back to where his magical quest started, Hebrion Academy. He plans on making sure everything goes differently this time.

I thought the manhwa was pretty good and fairly unique in the way it was approached. It does remind me of the Moshi Fanren and Tales of Demons and Gods manhua but it just has its own uniqueness to it.

This manhwa is available in both RAW and English versions. The RAW can be found on Kakao and the translated version can be found on TappyToon.

A Small Synopsis

Desir Arman, a mere commoner, tests the fate of destiny and aims to build an elite party composed of Beta magicians who are all from the Hebrion Academy so that he can prove that commoners can be just as good as royal Alpha magicians. The challenge has only just begun – can Desir and his comrades change what is going to unfold in the future?

What Is Good About A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special (귀환자의 마법은 특별해야 합니다)


I am a good 30 chapters into this manhwa so far and I am enjoying the storyline structure. The way the characters are introduced and the way everything is slowly building up is nice. Again as mentioned above, it reminds me of Moshi Fanren.

Art Style

I like the way the art is done in this manhwa and the colours the artist used. It does give it a very nice magical feel to it. The way the characters are drawn also makes it look nice and the line art is pretty nice to look at.


I really like Desir, he is a very cool protagonist and the way he is drawn is pretty cool. There are a few other characters such as Romantica and Pram – they have very interesting character designs and make me laugh with their personalities.


The official English translation is pretty good and I have found that it’s quite enjoyable to read and to follow. Overall a fairly good translation (some official translations can vary due to proverbs and other things not being easily translated from the original language to English).

What Is Bad About A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special (귀환자의 마법은 특별해야 합니다)

A Little Predictable

I have found that it was a little predictable, but with that said – it could just be me nit-picking.

Overall Conclusion

Overall an enjoyable read and a must for those who are after a new magical-fantasy manhwa! It has a lot of chapters and is still on-going so there are plenty more to come!
