Another beautiful and provocative installment in the life of Buddha.

Devadatta revolves around the title character, who was born in the last book to the short lived king. The book flips back and forth in time between the child Devadatta and the young (but by no means a child any longer) Siddhartha.

I love how this book juxtaposes the seemingly simple manga/anime style with the elaborate and realistic landscapes. It's a masterpiece.
