Now that I am done with my hardest midterm, I have a few days of break before I have to worry again, so I take this opportunity to finish up my review of The Cain Saga, which apparently is not that popular. Oh well, most manga I like are not very mainstream… whatever.
Godchild follows Count Cain and comprises of volumes six to thirteen. It delves deeper into Cain’s battle against the secret organization Delilah.
One of the best parts about this is the diverse cast of characters that appears. They are well developed and designed. I also love all of their costumes.
Godchild really takes Count Cain up a notch in terms of both plot and artwork. The story is much more mature as well. Reading the manga is like watching episodes of Law and Order: SVU. The stories are ripe with pedophilia, child abuse, incest, prostitution, rape… etc, though nothing is done too particularly distastefully. Everything has an elegant and graceful feel to it, as is appropriate for a story about the nobility.
I sometimes do wonder if Kaori Yuki has a special affinity for sex crime stories… haha but I like them a lot.
