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 story starts out as a simple one. Set in Heavens - ruled by a Tyrant - a prophecy about a certain guy who will defeat him - the main protagonist fulfilling that prophecy - road trip - meeting allies willing to help. Pretty Simple Right? Turns Out it Isn't!!

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

I picked up this manga just out of curiosity, because it was from CLAMP. And I love all of their works, so why not? And it was their first work!!

When I started I thought: "Hmm, the story goes so fast, that I can't follow what's happening anymore", but it kept me from giving up. To my surprise, I was able to read and understand everything in the end, where I cried a lot!!
At least that's what I think.

Anyway, the story is just amazing, but it's lacking, in my opinion, some further development... Like what happened to some characters and afterwards? Those kinds of things...

First, I have to mention that I read it on my laptop so the quality of the art and the narrative is lost in the screen, but it still can be appreciated.

The Art and the narrative is good, but is the later that suffers the most. The fights scenes can be confusing to follow the action and know what’s going on, this as well happens in some flashbacks where there are no texts and this can be worsen by the character design, something that I think is one of the biggest flaws in all of CLAMP’s work.

The Story is good as well, it is read more
