Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis User Reviews

Most of the scenes are funny.

The bad:

You'll have to make lots of items using alchemy with limited ingredients.
Using alchemy has become more complicated than necessary.
There are more voiced scenes and characters in Japanese than those in English.
