Amina Of The Lamp is a story I feel has a good reputation, for good reasons.
The initial story is very interesting as it is, without any romance or intrigues. However, we also do have backstabbing and murdering, along with some romance.
The story reminds me a lot about Fullmetal Alchemist, since alchemy is a huge part of the world. In Amina’s past, alchemy wasn’t a big thing instead it’s mostly magic.
Eventually, some type of love grows between Amina and Jakard. Both are very rational and seems to take their sweet time realizing their feelings for each other.
However, once they do confirm their feelings – they head straight for consummating their relationship.
Despite liking the series, I must say the villains feel a bit too overpowered. Everything goes right for the villains, and nothing goes right for the heroes.
Amina is also interesting as a character, and I can truly feel bad for her. Everything went badly for her and it makes sense she’s upset.
I appreciate how the creators deal with her sorrow and how desperately she want to reverse time. I also like how there’s a set amount of rules, or causality.
Final thoughts: Overall, the story starts off slowly but picks up the pace. It becomes more enjoyable around chapter 30 or so.
