Gene is a Taiwanese comic, and this volume has been translated into Engish and presented by Yuzu Comics. There are various levels of magic in this world, and Robin hopes that if he defeats a dragon, he must advance up to Star Level so others won't mock him anymore. As a mere entry level mage, we first meet him acting more like a scam artist. His spells continually backfire or come out completely wrong, which leads to being mocked. Even worse, his hero father was pitied because of Robin's poor skill. We follow Robin's attempt to hunt above his level and get chased around; that's when he summons a young prince by accident. The prince says he'll lead Robin to his kingdom for a reward, but that is the castle with the dragon.

The art style is like other manga, and it takes a bit for the story to get going because we need the back story. It makes us feel bad for Robin, and root for him when he goes to the forest. While it isn't good that Kyle tricked Robin into heading into the dragon's castle, we see how the plot turns and what Robin's magical skill really is. It's a fun start to what is sure to be a fun series.
