Elemental universe

The manga is based on a universe inhabited by elementals, beings capable of handling an element of nature, which can be one of the 4 main elements (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) or its derivatives (Magma, ice, plant, lightning , shadow ...) reaching elements as absurd as the mucus or egg element (you can create eggs with or without shell and use them in a fight). On the so-called "Zero Day", the best warriors of the kingdom, the 5 elements, were sold in exchange for a coveted treasure, assassinated the king and disappeared forever. From that day on, the new king used the army to create a strong nation and control his own people.

On the extended pages of Volume 2 of 5 items (chapter 13, page 121), Lluvia and Sôkar unfold a map. The regions that appear on this map are:

  • Falconia: in the north, with a mark in the town of Alturas. Associated with the Air element.
  • Caldera: in the north, with a mark in the town of Honsen. Associated with the Fire element.
  • Aquarela: in the west, with a mark on the Blue Lake. Associated with the element Water.
  • Baiena: in the west, with a mark in the dairy town. Associated with the element Water.
  • Leona: in the east, with a mark in the town Leona City. Associated with the Fire element.
  • Rocky: in the south, with a mark in the Golden Mines. Associated with the element Earth.
  • Reptilia: in the south, with a mark in the Flora population. Associated with the element Earth.

And then apart you can see the areas called: Yótumhaim and El fin (also called ocean). In chapter 31 it seems that the ocean becomes more important, since Leonardo (Professor of technology) explains that no one has been able to cross the ocean, although many have tried. Kaji disagrees, but Leonardo shuts him up by throwing a chalk on his forehead (the impact of which hits him against the wall and dragging other students in the room) and telling him that they are only legends.

History

This is the story of Kaji Llamaviva, a fire elemental, whose father is a soldier and his mother a baker, who is forced to move with his family from the capital to a redneck town, Beluga Town. In it, Kaji will meet Zap, a rather peculiar lightning elemental; a Lluvia, a water elemental with a lot of character; Sôkar, a very philosophical shadow elemental, and Slayer, a virus elemental from a family of scientists. Kaji's arrival in Beluga Town will take an unexpected turn in their lives, and little by little, they will discover the truth about the legend of the 5 Elements.

Showdown on Mount Pito

It all starts with the 5 protagonists investigating where the secret that the KV newspaper was talking about may be. Everything begins normal until new characters begin to appear and other familiar characters begin to gain importance (such as Captain Adler). Then, at a certain point, they come to the conclusion that the secret is in the pito mount, which at that time was owned by Kaji's father. In one night, Matarratas discovers that his parents had died and he was the only survivor of his family and, out of anger, he decides to gather the protagonists to go to the Pito mountain and thus solve the mystery. There they find a temple to which they pass. Zap, when touching a stone, causes the entire room they are in to collapse and they end up separated from the mode: Zap - Sokar, Kaji - Rain and Killer by their side. At the same time, Kaji's father is also on the mountain whistle in Sebastian's laboratory, Slayer's grandfather, and Ember's entire past is revealed, who has the twilight virus due to an encounter with Sebastian.

5 Element Characters

Kaji llamaviva

He is a fire elemental, son of Ember and Karolina Flamefire and brother of Chisp. He is the protagonist, and he does not differ enough in character from an ordinary boy. He has always refused to be a soldier like his father, and ends up living against his will in Beluga Town, instead of in Leona City, the capital, with his uncle Benjamin Llamaviva. He has a deep appreciation for Benjamin, and some hatred for his father. People always give him a bad look when they discover that his goal is to prove that the 5 Elements were heroes. This makes Zap's only true friend, as Zap doesn't consider him strange. You are infected with the Ocaso Virus, one of the three viruses that were prohibited from searching. It was transmitted to him genetically by his father, who was infected with the virus on Day Zero.. He has in his possession the journal of Ken Válbrandur, leader of the 5 Elements, written entirely in Ancient.

Zap

Lightning elemental with a strong resemblance to the character Raruto(from the comics of the same name, and the same author). His character can be considered as someone who is clueless, joking, and very short of understanding. He is an orphan and no details of his family are known, if any. In turn, in combat Zap stands out for his speed, for his way of fighting without thinking and for his little use of techniques from the school of the 5 levels (since he usually fights with his fists charged with electricity and rarely uses his techniques ), he often uses his element to light his own head in a lightbulb parody, or plugs a console charger into his nose to recharge its battery, and has only used an offensive electrical ability four times; one in the use of a possibly self-described technique called Fried ChickenAlthough this would not have been possible without Sôkar's help, apart from this battle he further demonstrates his good teamwork with Sôkar and his good coordination with him. He is the best, and practically unique, friend of Kaji Llamaviva, being one of the few (along with Sauce and Sôkar) who accepts him without discrimination. He tries to help Kaji decipher Ken Válbrandur's diary (although really, so far, he has done absolutely nothing). As of Saga 4, Zap takes as a pet the new Uroboros, which was born from an egg that the old one left when he died and that Zap found. Apart in saga 4 because the shadow of Sôkar and Lluvia had separated after the kidnapping of this, the near death of Sôkar because of this, Zap's attempts to save Sokar's life and his strength to recover to Rain,

Aquarrica Rain

Elemental of Alcaesto, publicly Elemental of Water. She is the daughter of Mr. Aquarrica, and practically the second strongest student at the Pueblo Beluga school (including the 10th graders and that teacher who has a skateboard). At first he is kind to Kaji, but, after his mistake (insulting the water elementals without knowing that she was, and criticizing Nizo's father without knowing that she is his sister), he falls out with him. She maintains a rivalry with Kaji, possibly due to the difference of elements, to Kaji insulting the water elementals, or to Kaji overcoming her in a fight in front of the entire Beluga school. Despite the apparent enmity between her and Kaji, she helps him several times, such as helping Rat Slayer heal Kaji. However, he seems to still be eager to prove that he is better than him. She has shown her fighting skills against Kaji and the Anpepon soldier, showing that she is not only strong, but also somewhat tricky, and that she has trained quite a bit in her life. In chapter 31 it is revealed that he is actually an Elemental from Akaestus and this is confirmed by Rat Slayer who sees the sign of Aquest within Lluvia with his Kimikoho. In saga 4 she is kidnapped by the artificial elements of Doctor Bombastus due to her Alcaestus.

Matarratas Rod Rattengift

It is elemental of Virus. His character is serious, and could also be considered cold. It seems to have a traumatic past, due to being an elemental of Viruses (Considered as the scum of elementals, since its element produces a disease to whoever touches the skin and infects or even kills some plants by having direct contact with them). He passionately hates the 5 Elements, because they presumably murdered his family, and destroyed a ton of data and labs. He worked with Professor Bleeding supposedly in the so-called Project Dawn, an investigation to create a vaccine so that the elemental viruses can touch other living beings without infecting them with any virus. However, what Bloodler really wanted was to get hold of the Nightfall Virus. Something that is striking is that, both his grandfather and Sôkar's, investigated things that the government did not like, which, in the future of the series, may be important. Owns theKimikoho or chemical eye . It is an eye skill that is passed down every 2 generations in the Rattengift family. With it you can see the simple substances that matter is made up of and also alter them to form other compounds, among other things.

Sôkar Was

It is Shadow elemental, and it is the shadow of Rain (possibly due to its elemental affinity, since they are both from the same elemental branch). He has a philosophical character, like everyone in his family, his family always wears blindfolds and dark clothes. Despite the impossibility of seeing due to the blindfold, he seems to have a very great sense of direction, as he can walk freely everywhere, and even create portals that lead to other places. He is one of the few characters who gets on moderately well with Kaji, offering to help him decipher Ken Válbrandur's diary, written in Old (a language he knows partially thanks to his late grandfather, although, according to him, he only knows a few insults, single words, and just enough to flirt). He is an excessively mysterious character, with relatively little known about his family or past, and the moment he met Lluvia is unknown. It is also unknown if he has any hidden goals. From saga 4 due to the kidnapping of Lluvia and the near death of Sokar when separating much from Lluvia, Sokar ends up becoming the shadow of Zap.
