I think The Cain Saga, and its sequel Godchild, have the most messed up and tragic characters I've seen so far. It's dark, it's gloomy. Don't expect happy endings in these two mangas, dead bodies keep pilling up. All the characters are so complex.

The Cain Saga art is not as good as Godchild, one can guess the artist art was not mature yet unlike when she made Godchild much later. Still it's a must to read to fully understand what happens in Godchild. There are a lot of good contents to find ther
I didn't like this one as much as the first two, but I will say it was better than #3. I don't know what the problem is. The first couple were so amazing and then it just went kinda bleh. Is it bad to say that I prefer the gory drawings to the actual plotline? I think it's good that we're learning more about the Delilah organization, but I still miss the eerie standalone plots from before. This volume gets one more star than the last because at least it had a bit more gore in it. I never thought ...more
I like the introduction of Mikaila's character, but the actual plot surrounding her was bland. In this volume, Yuki abandons the fairy tale theme to delve into Cain, Riff, and Jizabel's relationships, which is undoubtedly needed, but I believe that so much of the series's success falls on its fairy tale basis. Therefore, I do not feel as invested with the series farther along than when I started. Also, Yuki again has divided up her manga into several choppy stories, instead of keeping it at one, ...more
This manga is really getting detailed and convoluted. It's grotesque, tragic and filled with suspense, and you're really getting engrossed in Cain/Riff's story at this point.

I found Mikaila annoying in Little Miss Muffet, but Riff saving Cain from being poisoned made up for it. I'm so curious about what Jizabel has done to Riff, I can't remember at all!

Bloody Maria was interesting for Jizabel's backstory and seeing Cain as a blonde! Plus Riff comes to Cain's rescue again :-)! But the culprit for all the boys disappearing was a bit obvious, I think.
One of my favourites in the series, next to book five. I mean, the entire series is awesome, but this book is just pure win in every way.

not the most enlightening in the series, but at least the story is self-contained.

In this volume we get a little further into the society known as Delilah.

Blood, gore, and spiders?! Pure bone-chilling awesome.
