Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 3
Don’t get me wrong, I liked this. Compared to the previous two volumes, though, it’s not as great.
Which is very disappointing when you think that there will be no more future volumes.
Now I did indeed like this, because when Lady Maccon is around, it’s impossible to be bored.
So I wasn’t bored necessarily, but the story is very repetitive and, unlike the two previous volumes, there doesn’t seem to be a plot per se.
The first volume cov ...more
This volume was tense and hilarious in equal measure. Although, we don't get half as much as Lord Maccon as I would have liked, we do have Lady Maccon, Madame Lefoux, Floote (love that name) and plenty of Professor Lyall (he is very dreamy!)
Having been turned out by a very headstrong Lord Maccon for apparently "cavorting with others", a pregnant Lady Maccon makes an action-packed journey to Italy where she comes to reside wi ...more
Lots and lots of male nudity in this one. This is not a complaint.
The art was of course beautiful, and as with the rest of the books I love having a visual for this story. It's to bad they didn't make the last two books as well. This book was my least favorite of the series, and still is. Alexia was treated very badly in my opinion and she had done nothing to deserve it. I do like that this story does help explain some of the questions that have formed over the series, so that is always good. This marks the end of the parasol protectant series for me. I will b...more
Volume three of Soulless was witty and entertaining. Alexia travels to Italy this time, killing two birds with one stone by wishing to learn more of her heritage and to prove her stubborn, pig-headed husband wrong. This whilst being on the vampires most wanted list. Oh well, no-one said it would be easy. The plot gripped my attention from the beginning. It was fast-paced, action-packed and filled with ...more
I love Prof. Lyall in this. He’s a great friend and leader. Of course, we all want Alexia and Connal to get together, and to triumph over mad scientists and Templars! But the heart of the series is the relationships being built and how they keep growing. It is well done.

It truly left me with a good taste in my mouth and a smile on my face. My only complaint would be that it ended very, very abruptly. I was getting towards the end and getting very worried because I really didn't think they'd be able to wrap things up so quickly. I know this is from a 5 book series and there are only 3 mangas so I thought for a couple minutes there it was gonna end with a cliffhanger. I would not have been pleased. However, they did manage ...more

The storyline and art work in volume three is superb and sticks very similar to the book than other adaptions usually do. REM's artwork is fantastic and I was very excited to see all the details she puts into the drawings throughout this volume and the others. It really makes the manga something special and makes the steampunkness pop out from the page.
All the characters look like what you imagined from the b ...more
At first I liked Alexia but in the second and third story she lost her silliness. That's kind of sad. Furthermore Alexia is a not a ladylike character in the first novel, but after her wedding she pretends to. I don't like it too.
However Conall is a very kind guy and I liked him from the first page to the last one.
All in all I love the novels, I don't know if you can call ...more
This final book of the manga series wrapped things up nicely. However, if I hadn't already read The Parasol Protectorate series I might be a wee disappointed with the ending.
If you haven't read The Parasol Protectorate series, I would not recommend reading this manga series first. However, if you're a fan of the series these books are a blast!
What I liked: This is my least favorite book in the series, but the shorter graphic novel was much more enjoyable.
What I didn't like: n/a
Favorite quote: n/a
I liked that there are more colored illustrations in this novel. But I can't recommend the manga to people unfamiliar with the story. I had the feeling so much was missing, and I don't know if I'd be able to understand everything without having read the novels.
