Denetsu No Yusha No Denetsu (Legend of the Legendary Heroes)

Warning Spoiler Alert!
Ryner Lute is a lazy magician and the bearer of the Alpha Stigma. The Alpha Stigma is basically the ability to see magic and understand every aspect of it by breaking it down making it so that the bearer can instantly recreate it. The alpha stigma bearer has always been looked at as a monster and feared by society, hence the reason why Ryner is so lazy. He pretends to be lazy in order not to draw attention to himself, when in reality he is very bright. He even takes the fall for a tragic massacre of his fellow military academy students. While imprisoned he reads nearly every book in the academy’s library, just going to show his true intelligence. He is later freed only due to his friendship with the King of the Roland Empire, Sion Astal. He is sent with Ferris Ellis on a journey to discover and recover the lost hero relic, items which were used in ancient times by heroes and which have unimaginable power. During this time Ryner and Ferris end up developing a strong bond between each other even though Ryner has always avoided making bonds because the ones he’s always made in the past have ended when the alpha stigma took control of him and either destroyed them or scared them so much that they wanted nothing to do with him. Throughout the series, Sion is constantly troubled with the thought of betraying Ryner in order to do what he believes is necessary for the future of the Roland Empire. Ryner while in prison wrote a report about how he thought the world would achieve peace based on his theory of taking naps. In the end Sion ends up betraying Ryner and the series is left open for a second season, which has yet to happen. Some may call it a cliché hero antihero storyline but call me a romantic, because I enjoyed this very much and am still waiting for the follow up. I recommend this to all.
