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?

Whenever I find a manga that qualifies as a masterpiece in my book, I feel the need to write a review. It is a silly compulsion, purely because I have little to say save "It's perfect".
The story and its development are smooth and natural, the characters are complex and lifelike. The ones which are not-so-human manage to capture the essence and ambiguity of what it means to be a human being. Eternal Sabbath is complex and simple at the same time, and it poses an eternal moral dilemma - is anybody born good or bad?
I loved everything in this manga. The sensitivity of read more

To be able to take over someones thoughts, to go into peoples minds - thats an unseen ability, and by the story we can experience what its like. In talks I admire some analytical thoughts: about love, growing up, and self understanding. Also story touches about sientists morale, about humanity morale.. that we would rethink our point of view towards such.

I liked ES, as it was very interesting of mans with those abilities thoughts, and Dr. Mine Kujyou thoughts. Story was realistic, yet I personaly dont like too much dramatical scenes, Id like to see more things going well. I also liked the development read more

Eternal Sabbath is very intriguing story about the mental stability of people!? How if someone was created to solely for reason as stupid as mortality and at the end it backfired to control minds and hearts of people?!

This story depicts if in reality this really happened how people will react positively or negatively!?

The art and character development is simply so great!? The characters are so deeply connected with each other with very complex networks very hard to break and the same time fragile!?

Human relationships, psychology, jealousy, emotions and so much more u will observe in this manga!? If you are not so into read more

Someone could call ES a plain sci-fi manga about human experimentation and meaning of being human, about value of human life, about morality of murder and judgment, about tragic love in today-we-save-the-world circumstances... The final may seem plain also as a logical ending. It may also scare like The Astronaut's Wife or Transcendence's final, when you know that this story is totally completed, though it may be also a beginning of smth... Wait a minute! Isn't it a describing of a perfect sci-fi?
ES - Eternal Sabbath is a great work, for adult mind and not for entertainment: there is little of humorous or read more
