Fantasy manga take place in a broad range of settings influenced by mythologies, legends. And popular defining works of the genre such as The Lord of the Rings. They are generally characterized by a low level of technological development, though fantasy stories can just as easily take place in our modern world. Or in a Post-apocalyptic society where technology was buried alongside the old world. These manga also tend to feature magic and other extraordinary abilities, strange or mysterious creatures. And humanoid races which coexist with humanity or inhabit their own lands removed from ours.
