rg veda is a classic. it's not as well known to today's younger generation of manga fans, but those who have read it never forgot it.

it is one of clamps earliest works, and its first major work.

and what a story they have spun! gods and goddesses, war, forbidden love, betrayal, loyalty and trust. unfulfilled desires and hidden wishes.

love that spans across centuries. characters who have sold their souls for their wishes. characters who have all but died from the loss of their love.

the first few volumes are a little confusing, since clamp has a tendency of introducing several characters at a time, but read more

I honestly didn't think I'd like this and it was absolutely prejudiced of me. The name sounded too much like it would be filled with Mecha and Action (which aren't my cup of tea.), but it was the closest manga in reach and I needed something to read.

I was very pleasantly surprised, the characters and artwork were brilliant. I fell in love with each new character, wanting to know more about them and felt my heart being crushed as I saw them being brutally killed. I'm not sure if I've read a manga containing more innocent bloodshed, except maybe Hellsing, but that's debateable.

I picked this Manga on my Reading Quest before I could for Tsubasa Chronicles. And Boy, it Turned out to be the Best Manga I have ever Read (till date). And it is one Criminally Underrated Gem!!

The first four volumes follow this and I found myself struggling through them. Of Course, being CLAMP's work (their debut read more

This is one of the best manga's i've ever read... not that i've read THAT many manga's yet, but this is a MUST read...

This is the Debut Manga by CLAMP but i will say that you dont really have to be a CLAMP fan to read this one... I dont like other stories of CLAMP manga's That much... it isnt really something I myself would recomond (which i wont describe here), and yet RG Veda really is a masterpiece thats completed to like every detail...

of course there's places in the series where u might stop up and think... "Hey... isnt that weird... noone can read more
