So, let me tell you straight off the bat - if you expect original and creatively weaved story, or if you are into more nuanced character building with certain depth, don't look here, for your own sake. Tetragramaton Labyrint is a story about a nun and a small girl, killing hellish spawns on the behalf of the church. It sounds simple, it is told simple, it is not the most creative idea ever. Also the story is not episodic in nature, which I think it coiuld've worked better. Of course, even a simple story can be an exciting and enjoyable read, if it's
cast is well crafted, which in this case, is not. The main duo doesn't fall apart from the 1 dimensionality from the start itself to the end, and what can we even say about the few supporting cast. I want to say a few things about the art, which is probably the best things of this work, but it's more like a mixed bag than flawles gem. If you love your art to be pretty cutesy, with lots of fanservice here and there, that's the manga for you. Personally, I disliked it, since it couldn't make the atmosphere more serious and terrifying (which is pretty much obligatory in a manga, having horror tag slapped on it?), and looked more like that the mangaka wanted to have his cute girls, doing some cool battles, filled with at least a few action shots, spouting some painfully edgy monologues, which made the whole thing almost unbearable. The art has it's plus sides, like the gore was made alright (although not really fitting with the cute character design) and the opponents looked for the most parts, okay.
To summarize in short my thoughts about that manga - it's story is ordinary and unoriginal, the art is okay, tho it does vary from person to person's taste, as for the characters, almost all are bland and you can't really get invested in them. Enjoyment is a subjective value, but I personally got bored and hollow, I really din't cared what was going on from the middle of it to it's end. If you're into cute girls and gorey action, go for it, otherwise it'd be best to avoid this manga.
