Con este volumen comienzo mi tercera relectura de la saga de novelas ligeras Trinity Blood. La trama es trepidante, misteriosa y seductoramente adictiva. Es imposible dejar de leer hasta concluir el último capítulo.

Great concepts, excellent imagery, powerful themes. Execution isn't the best, but that could be a loss in the translation.

Recomendado, para los amantes de la estrategia, los vampiros y los mundos post apocalípticos.

Así como la imaginación, hasta donde llega la raza humana por poder no tiene límites.

На самом деле началось мое знакомство с этой вселенной с аниме, но его было мало и тут мне в руки попало несколько переводов. Вампиры, будущее технологии, магия построенная на науке, супер-оружие, инквизиция и много чего еще представляют собой впечатляющий микс. Мир, который создал автор, обалденный, я жалею только о том, что это лайт новеллы и там очень мало деталей, потому что хочется узнать об этом постапокалиптическом пространстве еще больше. Но в остальном краткость, как говориться, сестра ...more

Reseña completa en mi blog:
http://drdeadwish.blogspot.com.ar/201...

Esta novela ligera es un poco mejor que su predecesora, Desde el Imperio (que es el inicio de la otra saga paralela). Pero tampoco la supera por mucho. Es importante la aparición de Esther, que posteriormente será un personaje importante en la saga. La trama es aceptable, aunque nuevamente hay un abuso de situaciones en que Abel llega justo a tiempo, pero un "justo a tiempo" dudoso, porque en la espera siempre hay víctimas

Aunque esta es la tercera novela de Sunao Yoshida que he leído, esta es la primera novela de la serie y al leerla me he dado cuenta cuan bueno era la historia que Yoshida tejió. Desde el comienzo el no solamente entretiene al lector con un mundo extremadamente interesante pero también da una complejidad a la temática del conflicto que muestra una sofisticación pocamente observada en el mundo de ciencia ficción. Igualmente, Yoshida sabe dar el tempo perfecto para la trama, dando al lector poco a ...more

A novelization of an existing anime, you could almost feel it in some of the dialog; you could really tell this was based on anime and even though I have seen nothing of the actual Trinity Blood series I could really picture it in my head as anime while I was reading. The premise on which the story is based is interesting and could very well make a good live action film if done right. The vampires of Trinity Blood have a more biological, scientific feel to them, rather than a supernatural ...more

Una historia llena de acción que en cierta forma me recordaron a Hellsing, tenemos los humanos luchando contra los vampiros y del lado de la humanidad, el Vaticano defendiéndonos de las fuerzas oscuras por medio de sus agentes, intrigas, maquinaciones y dobles caras abundan en el relato manteniéndonos en vilo y con ganas de saber a cada momento más y más. Es una historia corta que al estar repleta de acción se lee en un abrir y cerrar de ojos acompañada de hermosas ilustraciones. 100% ...more

Trinity Blood is currently one of my favourite manga series' that I am following. Who couldn't love Abel Nightroad, such a loveable doofus that becomes the beautiful and seeming undefeatable Crusnik? So I decided to try the novels that have come out in this franchise.

This first volume is well translated, very readable and retells the first meeting and subsequent teaming up of Abel and Esther, the novice nun. I enjoyed it very much and I've already ordered the second volume :-)!

Una mierda de libro, sólo terminé de leerlo porque estaba muy pequeño.
Contiene todos los clichés del manga de vampiros: un protagonista torpe y buena onda con un enorme poder oculto, una chica coprotagonista sexy y un enemigo vampiro que sufre de la pérdida de su esposa y quiere vengarse de la humanidad.

Si Corín Tellado fuera japonesa seguro escribiría estas mamadas.

I only have seen this manga in the anime version. Reading this for the first time is quite a shocker, something that really got my eyes dragged into this series. From the beginning I saw some parts of the plot to be somewhat alike to the anime. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the manga :)

The story and art were great but sadly the writing style was distractingly bad at times - likely more the fault of a botched translation then of the actual author which is a shame. (This is more like 3.5 stars tbh but as you can't give half stars on Goodreads...)

While Esther was not one of my favorite characters in the anime, I did not feel quite the same animosity towards her when reading the books.
