I shall give you the most exquisite nightmare.
This review is for the series, volumes 1-20. There may be spoilers (but I'll try not to include them), and there WILL be a lot of pictures!
This series was quite a ride. I can't believe I didn't make it a point to finish it sooner, having only made it to volume 11 years ago. Well, I rounded up the rest of the volumes and buckled down and now I'm done.
First, here's a picture I drew of Kira a long time ago. He's one of my favorite characters, which should be obvious since he's so dark and tall and a delinquent and has a scar in the shape of a bloodstain. Oh, and he's totally hot.
Here's actual Kira, drawn by the manga artist herself:
LOOK AT THE DARKNESS IN THOSE EYES. I'M DEAD.
Your face… your hair… your body… your blood… Must I tear you apart over and over again?
Setsuna Mudo, an idiot boy in love with his sister, is the latest reincarnation of Organic Angel Alexiel. He and his friends get caught up in the war between Heaven and Hell, with their connections to each running deeper than they ever could have dreamed.
Unfortunately, Setsuna is the most annoying boy on heaven and earth. And hell. He's annoying there, too. He's always yelling rude things at people, even when he loves them and they're dying. And he's fond of telling bad guys he'll never forgive them for this or that. Like the bad guys even care! They're evil angels with epic agendas, after all.
The seven vices I love. Envy, destruction, affliction, captivity, famine, chaos, ruin. Yes. They are all sweet poison. Born from my mouth.
However, I do love several of the other characters. Like Kira. And Lucifer (duh). Kurai. Zaphikel. Belial. Kato. Even Alexiel, while not given much screen time, is pretty awesome. Everyone loves and hates each other, making for quite the monstrous love web. The angels are not completely good and the demons... well, the demons are generally bad. But sometimes in a fun way.
(It's no mystery why I like Zaphikel, is it? I mean, that long hair and that priest outfit... HELLO.)
Live as you want. You are never alone.
The storyline is pretty awesome. It's suitably biblical while also being inventive. Angels are warriors, technology is spliced with organic matter, love is forbidden, motives are often unclear, and God is (view spoiler)[a motherfucking crazy asshole, but that's not actually a surprise (hide spoiler)].
The above picture is of Kira and Kato. Oh, and Setsuna's there on the bottom. Bleh.
I teared up at the end. No tears actually fell, but they were there, in my eyes. In the afterword, the author mentioned that she'd written an alternate ending that she decided not to use. I wish I could read it! I really recommend this series if you can get your hands on it.
We will meet again. Somewhere, somehow in the great pool of time.
