Synopsis

Deep in the heart of 19th century London, a young nobleman named Cain walks the shadowy cobblestone streets of the aristocratic society into which he was born. Forced to become an earl upon the untimely death of his father, Cain assumes the role of head of the Hargreaves, a noble family with a dark past. With Riff, his faithful manservant, and Mary Weather, his 10-year-old half sister, Cain investigates the mysterious crimes that seem to follow him wherever he goes.

I only recommend if for those sick people who can stomach the convulted, twisted, vile nature of humanity and still think its one helluva story.

Well then, hello you sick people, this is your manga.

Story:
Basically Godchild (first started in the Cain Saga) is the story of the Earl Cain, a posion collection, who is a noble of the prestigious English family, and finds himself investigating strings of murders involving serious psychologically distrubed people (seriously, they are MESSED UP) in the current decaying society which is London. As the story progresses he begins to find a pattern in these cases all connected to a read more

I absolutely love this series (and of course, The Cain Saga). I love Kaori Yuki's artwork, and the relationships she constructs between characters is always so involved, complex, and at time twisted. But..it always works out because the feelings of the characters are real. Very very real.

Plus, who doesn't like the feel and look of Victorian London? Who hasn't wondered about the perversive nature of fairy tales and Mother Goose tales? And the chapter titles were so appropriate for the setting of the manga, I can tell Kaori-sama put a lot of research in this.

Kaori Yuki proved, with this manga, that she is a master story teller. Her characters are so 3-dimensional, it's hard to dislike any of them. I was also amazed by the amount of plot that she was able to squeeze into only 8 volumes without any of it seeming rushed. And the art is (of course) beautifull. However, the main reason this is one of my favorite mangas, is all because of how it ended. It has, in my opinion, the best ending I've ever read or seen in any anime.

I'm pretty new to the whole manga/anime scene, but despite that, I'm an avid reader and Godchild holds its own against my favorite novels. And honestly, I wish more novels were like this.

Story:
This is definitely a mature story, and not for people who are rubbed the wrong way by messed up family dynamic and "interesting" relationships. That having been said, Godchild has the right balance of disturbing, so it's just enough to give the story a healthy dose of macabre, but not enough to be excessive or ridiculous. It's full of twists and surprises, and I really mean surprises, not the kind that try read more
