The first portion of the manga takes place three years before the original Drakengard. One, along with his elven companion Nero, travel through Midgard killing all those that suffer from the Red Eye disease, eventually killing the current head of the Cult of Watchers, Fey.

The second portion of the manga consists of a flashback that takes place six years before the original Drakengard, on the day of Caim's birthday. It details the spread of the Red Eye disease throughout Caerleon and the death of Caim's parents at the hands of Legna

This is my first review ever, so i decided to take on this one.

As a fan of the Drag-on Dragoon series and it's spin-off Nier, i'm sad to say that this is a dissapointment. Spoiler alert incoming:

The Manga takes place almost a century (if i'm not wrong, it's not exact of long it takes place) after the first ending to Drakengard 3 (Drag-on Dragoon 3 in Japan) and One's brother is on a quest for "redemption". Apparently he's killing a bunch of people with his elven partner Nero, who is a sadistic psychopath. Right of the bat, the characters likability drops in the toilet.

I want to say this was weird but...
Yoko Taro things by definitions are weird.

I really wanted to to put a 7/10 but...
But the ending pissed me off so bad, I screaming to myself "WHY" in different language because of the pain I was feeling. I happen to love emotional trauma. 8/10.

(((Spoiler of the ending under this)))
If you read this manga I'm gonna assume you've played Drakengard 3. I loved One from the moment I saw him in the game. I loved his sister, One. I loved them both.And I was eager to know what happened after sister One's death. I really loved this character read more

Wow, that is outstanding! That’s the idea that kept pulsing through my brain after I’ve read the Drag-On Dragoon Shi ni Itaru Aka. It’s something ground-, mind- and everythingintheworldbreaking. Yoko Taro – the master of humans’ hearts dark corners this time has brought to us something as unique and breathtaking as it is flawless in its own madness.

The beauty of this creation can not be equal to any other manga, because it is indeed colossal and unrepeatable. The diamond that makes Drag-On Dragoon series a work of genius is not the storyline, but the characters. Sick, twisted and bloodthirst “heroes” that will set the whole read more
