Mixed Feelings
Okay, this may just be because I saw the anime first, but wow...just freakin wow. The authors really weren't kidding when they said they were bringing us a different aspect of the anime in the manga. Good god!

I just recently bought volume 3, the final volume in the series. They only told of what Gankutsuou did to one of the three men who "betrayed" him (not gonna say who), and then they kinda scattered the rest of the characters to the wind.

While I did like the manga, I truly and deeply prefer the anime. Like Blood +, for me, the manga left me unsatisfied ...
