I've recently finished Tezuka's Phoenix and was ready to start Nausicaa, so I went to the public library in my city to borrow it, unfortunately another nigga had already taken the first volumes, so yeah, I was pissed off. But I didn't want to have the feeling I went there for nothing, so I decided to pick another manga. I've never heard about Eden: It's an Endless World, but it had a cool name and for some reason, some covers reminded me a bit of Battle Angel Alita and Akira, so I took 4 volumes.
The story is rather complex, and involve several characters at different period of time, so it's hard to make a brief summary of it.
! From Wikipedia:
! Eden is set in the near future, following a pandemic which killed 15 percent of the world's population, crippled or disfigured many more, and upset the world's political balance greatly.
! The series begins with a long introduction, with the characters Ennoia and Hannah living a peaceful life on a remote island called Eden, with researcher Lane Morris, who is their guardian, a victim of the pandemic. The events that led to this situation are revealed in flashbacks, leading up to the return of Ennoia's father, along with the forces of the Propater Federation.
Following this, the story moves forwards twenty years, and focuses on Ennoia's son, Elijah, and his own conflict with Propater.
I'm not so far in the story, but I 'm already hooked. It's definitely one of the most thought-provoking manga about human nature. There are lots of references and analogy to many mythologies.
I've just finished volume 3, it was violent, brutal, merciless… well, awesome, I'm still shocked.
Has anyone else read it?
