Synopsis

Ryousuke Akiba calls himself ES, a code name taken from a mysterious scientific experiment. Ryousuke will live to be at least two centuries old and possesses strange mental powers: He can enter people's minds, discover their darkest secrets, even rearrange their memories so that complete strangers will treat him like family. Ryousuke acts not out of malice but for survival-wandering Tokyo for reasons known only to him. No one recognizes him for what he is...until Dr. Mine Kujyou, a determined researcher, meets someone who challenges everything she knows about science-ES, possessor of the Eternal Sabbath gene. But is he the only one?

[WORK AND AUTHOR]
ES: Eternal Sabbath is a drama, science fiction, and supernatural manga, written and drawn by the author Fuyumi Souryo, which has eighty-three chapters published from 2001 to 2004. I worked with Shoujo, for Seinen. It is important to say that Souryo is a veteran mangaka who has been publishing works since the 80s and continues to be active until today, with her most recent work: Cesare: Hakai no Souzousha, ending in 2021.

Mixed Feelings
(spoiler-free section)
ES doesn't come anywhere close to a masterpiece, mainly due to flaws in the plot (plot holes, plot armor) and in the characters, notably their lack of depth.

In terms of plot, ES falls short due to its premise. Shuro's power is non-interactive: he goes into your mind and can kill you or brainwash you. This is nothing short of being OP, and if he enters someone's mind, there's no real telling what's going on until the narrative fills us in. So where could this manga get interesting?

In the characters! That's because now the question is, how will he use his powers and how will ...

Really interesting premise but I think it could have been executed a lot better. Lots of problems I have with the manga. I find it interesting that some other reviewers claim this is a masterpiece despite its blatant flaws.

STORY - [5.5/10]
You follow the journey of 2 individuals developed in a special lab. They were developed to have psychic powers and one of them was taught morality, while the other one was not. By psychic powers, I mean that they can read minds, control people, and even harm others (through doing mind stuff). With this in mind, you follow both of them and how they interact ...
