Personally, this manga isn't as great as everyone says it was/is. Its still pretty good though, although I disliked the ending. Not bad, not bad at all, though.

The series was very good and I read it in a matter of two days, it was so addicting. However... the ending disappointed me a lot. Regardless of the ending though, it was a GREAT manga.

It's an amazing manga. The wonderful pacing really stood out to me. The scenes were just the right length- not so long that I'd get bored and not so short that I would be confused and unsatisfied.

I really loved the way it approached the issues it does. Like in the first volume with the two boys. It really made me ask myself which one deserves punishment. (I started feeling sorry for the long-haired one even though he... well, you know. >_<)

Great plot, great characters, great art, and packed with so much feeling it can knock you out. <3 What more could you want?

The story is very good! The beginning might be missguiding you though, considering there isn't as much supernatural stuff later in the series as in the beginning. It becomes more a psychological drama. But hey, that what it is supposed to be!

Wow...this was totally different from what I usually read
but so interesting, I thought I wasn't going to like this at all
cuz, it's not the type of manga i usually read, but the details,
the Psychology that's involved in all this, was awesome
I recommended it for sure

I began reading scanlated mangas with Death Note but it had its shortcomings. When I read Eternal Sabbath, however, I found my standard +10 manga. I tend to rate other mangas I've read against Eternal Sabbath. I haven't found a manga who can unseat it from its rating. It's that good.

The characterization is well-done and is further enhanced by skilled artwork. The backdrops are clean and clear. The plot is well-paced and the resolution was satisfying. I like this manga because it's not long-winded. It's very contained and the story-telling is credible. Dialogues are intelligent and somewhat witty. I found myself laughing out loud even at the midst of the story's growing tension. The theme is philosophical and leaves you with a whole lot of questions about life and the meaning of existence.

Eternal Sabbath is worth setting up as a standard 10!

Interesting elements in the beginning

Interesting elements in the beginning, however, the entire story turned into yet another draggy series which would've been far more interesting had it been trimmed down by half.

It starts very intersting, the hole mind controlling thing is a nice idea , but after a few volumes it`s getting pretty boring, nothing happens at all.The important things are told in the first 3 volumes and then absolutly nothing happens. It seems the mangaka run out of ideas and used the same elements again and again, in the end I was glad when I was finished because it started to bore me a lot.

This is a truly intelligent, entertaining and engrossing manga about the human mind, and about what makes it function the way it does. The plot of the ES gene is brilliant in and of itself, but what really makes this manga memorable is that it explores the depths of human consciousness. Even the minor characters are explored fully and in amazingly unique ways. The poetic imagination of Souryo Fuyumi gives this manga a special intensity.

One of the best seinen stories out there. Check it out!
