The story's authenticity should have never been an issue. Satou Kenichi never meant to tell the story about Jean d'Arc. It was a story of Mercenary Pierre. Funny how most English readers zealously defend our take on history, when it is merely the most popular take.

The manga was pleasant, the art was more interpretive than mere eye candy, the plot was naive but very acceptable. What was lost in translation was somewhat unavoidable.

I can't say I liked this story. There were serious pacing issues, and things that deserved explanation were left as mere statements. What's more, Pierre is a made up character given a huge role in the life of Joan of Arc. Historical fictions that take such liberties tread on dangerous territory; I distinctly felt that Pierre was a Gary Stu and that Joan of Arc's character was compromised in the ordeal.

In short, for me to consider this story worthy of any rating above what I gave it, a lot more careful planning and fleshing out of detail would be necessary.

As I'm a bit disappointed to discover, this is about what I was expecting. Decent, but far from exceptional art. An interesting setting, but without compelling characters or particularly skilled storytelling. The pacing is a mess of scenes cut short and dragged out far too long, with random nudity and shallow characters only serving to drag it down. Gets a half-decent rating for the art (I rate things harsher than most), but the storytelling irritates me to the point that I can't even bare to bring myself to give it a 5.

His take on Joan of Arc is an interesting one. However it is one that leaves me with much skepticism. Not that i took this manga as a serious take on historical analysis of Joan's character, but that the story is built upon absolutely nothing but her name and battles that she participated in. None of the characters in this manga have a personality that is humanistic. They are too shallow or simplistic which leaves characters like Joan and pierre lacking. They simply do not act human to clarify. Theres lots of nudity and depicts the environment of France in a very crude manner which i guess could be an appealing aspect for some readers but the work lacks depth that would make this a work that is worth reading. Give it a shot maybe you might like it more than I did. But i would only waste my time if I had nothing better to do.

It has an easy to read kind of flow to it. The author sometimes writes too much, though it allows for a much better atmosphere. The art is done well which is to be expected from this artist. All in all a good first three chapters. But usually stories like this have crappy coclusions.

great atmosphere in this one. feeling of misery and building up tension. I don't know what Blaha eant with "not again" since Jeanne d'arc is a pretty rare character in Manga ^^

art, as expected from Noguchi Takashi, is enjoyable and interesting, but what's with that Joan of Arc concept? personally i really dislike the idea of using western religion in manga. mostly, that turns me away from reading that material, but for respect for Noguchi Takashi, let's give a try.

6.5 for drawing.
