Synopsis

Ganymedes is a revered, handsome Trojan prince. His beauty has not gone unnoticed by the gods. The day of his coming of age parade, Ganymedes is abducted by Apollon, the sun god.

Ganymedes awakens in a foreign place, surrounded by pure-white flowers and an endless, star-filled sky. Apollon reappears and informs Ganymedes that he’s imprisoned in the Garden of the Gods. For what purpose is he being kept there?

Art- 9/10
This manga would catch people's attention with its beautiful art. It's very consistent and gorgeous. Hands down, it's definitely a 9, if not 10. I love the way the Gods are drawn, especially Zeus.

Story- 8/10
For the story, indeed if it's your first time to read sensei's work, then you'd be confuse. It's kinda deep, you see. The questions that arise from the story is quite challenging to understand. Sometimes you can't understand what they are talking about. You have to really concentrate to get what's happening.

I also feel that the manga lacks a proper ending. Maybe it's because it's my first time reading ...

Well no one wrote a review yet, obviously as i am the only one so far. This is also my first review, i just thought i should mention that.
Hmm well to tell you the truth at times when i was reading Olimpos i was wondering if perhaps i was reading it wrong. Maybe i was. But there were some confusing parts with dialouge and frankly, with what the heck was going on. Well you can figure out the basics, that its about Ganymedes who was stolen away to a Minature Garden by Apollo. Where then Apollo visits him often to converse in ambigious conversations about ...

Mixed Feelings
This manga could've just as easily been an artbook and it would be just as good or better. I believe that before adequately judging the work you should identify what it's trying to achieve and then conclude whether it succeeds but there's also something to be said about how valuable the goal is to begin with.

In case of Olimpos, author's goal (judging from afterwords) was to just draw a bunch of cute boys in elaborate outfits. The goal is clearly achieved as one again stated by author themselves but is there anything else of interest to the manga? Not really, the story is completely pointless ...
