The Drops of God Volume 4 continues directly from Volume 3. The plot and knowledge of wine on which it is based builds carefully and the series really should be read in order from the beginning, but there are somewhat self contained stories in this volume and it probably could be read on it's own.

**Note: This review contains no spoilers for Volume 4 but will have somewhat major spoilers for earlier volumes. **

Shizuku Kanzaki has done well in his first test as a student of wine and emerged victor
Wow, I really disliked this edition of The Drops of God. Whereas the drama of the first issues truly centered on wine, this volume suddenly threw in great amounts of manga angst -- death threats, unwanted pregnancies, sex in the desert, junior high bullying. Ouf! While there was still a slight emphasis on finding reasonably priced wines that mirror or rival Grand Cru wines, the overall storyline was scattered and drama ridden.

And the second apostle is found. Things are moving along at a nice pace. Side stories are popping up at every turn, but it never feels padded. In most hands, the wine-centric nature of all the stories would become tiresome rather quickly, but Agi and Okimoto do a tremendous job of keeping things fresh and interesting. Not thrilled to see that the English translation of the story is going to appear out of sequence, but since it's at the author's request, I'll just have to grin and bear it.

The wine hijinks continue. Tomine gets it in his head that the way to find the Second Apostle is to (view spoiler). The melodrama in this series is hilariously awesome.

The pace was slower in this volume, but the search was still absorbing!

I really wish there would have been more time spent on hunting for the wine. I thought that the possible wines kind of landed in our main character's lap. Hopefully things will be less predictable with the next volume.

I really loved books 1, 2 and 3. Book 4 reminded me that this is really a soap opera created by people who love wines from France, primarily Bordeaux and Burgundy. The world of wine is huge - more wines please.

The story seemed to slow down a bit in this one. Maybe it's just because I took so long to read it... Or maybe I took so long to read it because the story was slow?

The quest for finding the next apostle continues, along with some interesting side stories. If you love wine or learning about wine this is the manga for you.

Fun fun fun. Why can't I get these in japanese? I'd rather struggle though the translation than wait for the English publications.

I enjoyed this one the best of all so far. Extremely disappointed they are jumping ahead in the series.
