    Default New Manga Idead(Fly from Rikku Sanjo)

    Well, i'M really a fan of this series, but since its really old, its impossible to find all the volume back here in Canada, so i'd really like to people from Stoptazmo.com to put this Mana on the already really big list.

    Mana is a traditional term that refers to a concept among the speakers of Oceanic languages, including Melanesians, Polynesians, and Micronesians. It is an impersonal force or quality that resides in people, animals, and inanimate objects and that instills in the appreciative observer a sense of respect or wonder. In anthropological discourse, mana as a generalized concept has attained a significant amount of interest; often understood as a precursor to formal religion. It has commonly been interpreted as "the stuff of which magic is formed", as well as the substance of which souls are made.

    Modern fantasy fiction, computer and role-playing games, have adopted mana as a term for magic points—an expendable resource out of which magic users form their magical spells.

    Mana should not be confused with the Biblical manna (also spelled mana or mannah) which, according to the Bible (Exodus, chapter 16), provided sustenance for the Israelites.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    That's mana but what's "a mana"? The OP clearly says "to put this Mana on the...".

    1 magic point I'd assume.

    98abaile... my humor level isn't probably high enough to catch the supposed subtle irony behind the posts of shinoel or stealdragon believing they were indeed asking themselves why this guy spelled a sentence with the word mana...

    but in the end, that should'nt change much... should it...

    as for the mana of the israelites i tought that should have been spelled manna with 2 n...
    but that might just be the italian spelling of the word...
