it was ok
bookshelves: manga-and-graphic-novels, 2-star

Maybe closer to 2.5/5

I don't know how I feel about this. I love the art a lot, and the concept is awesome, too - I love the idea gods being reincarnated only to die in two years. I also loved Luci! BUT I went from "okay, yeah, this is pretty cool" to "wtf am I reading" multiple times, and to be honest it gave me a headache. With graphic novels being such short, quick reads, there's no reason for me to be bored while reading any; yet, I was through a lot of it. And half the time I didn't really know what the hell was going on.

I will say that the ending was a delightful twist I didn't see coming, and I'm kind of intrigued. I don't know if I'll read the next one, though, as this one was kind of a struggle.
