I wasn't particularly interested in this series at first because the premise seemed a little light. But when I began reading it my eyes became glued to the screen. I wouldn't have stopped if it there were more chapters for me to read. I wholeheartedly recommend this series to anyone who is simply into quality, engaging story-telling and art.
Yup, the story is very engaging and it is hard to let down after the first few chapters. I would love to see how far this series goes, though soon we may run out of chapters to translate. Anyway, the mysteries of his past and much of the ironies (you'll find plenty in there) keep you wanting to read more and more. Highly recommended.
This history is hardcore!
Well after first 23 chapters I can say I'm impressed, definately one of the best manga titles atm, really powerful way of storytelling that picks up with second volume and doesn't let go. Art might be plain and simple but it does the job. Things can get gruesome often though, so be warned.
Parasite was very good, I myself rate it among the most interesting mangas I've read (and I've read a lot ! ;-) ) but as someone already said it before, the mangaka seems to have gained a huge amount of experience since then : The pace of this manga is peculiar but surely captivating, I couldn't stop reading when I first started, Eumenes as a character is impressive, not a whiner, not arrogant, ... I like the way the mangaka draws the action scenes, they're clear and uncompromising, that's a good sign as we can probably expect more of them in the future. Also it's interesting to see greek society by the eyes of a japanese, it's very well described and intelligently dissected.
Gambatte Kotonoha !!
Wonderful... simply wonderful.
One of the best, well-thought out action manga I have ever read, the main character fights with his head, not his heart or with his strength, as is the trend.
By the same mangaka as Parasyte, it will not disappoint.

I had just read up to chapter 16 and the story made a hugely dramatic turn. Gotta say that i'm thoroughly hooked now. Eumenes is an exceedingly interesting character.

I'm so glad Kotonoha picked it up
As Pearlesque has commented below, it's an historical, interesting manga featuring Aristotle, with all the philosophical, political implications you can wish for. If you're looking for something different, try this out.
Quirky and intelligent!
As the name implies, this is a historical manga. It's set in Aristotle's time, and focuses on his exile as well as on his philosophy. It's a very interesting storyline, entirely devoid of melodrama -- instead, it's filled with dry humor and unique observations. Well, it is about Aristotle, after all, and about the slave boy who becomes Aristotle's friend. The dialogue covers topics as diverse as politics and mathematics. Wonderful stuff!
I really hope to read more, and soon. It's rare to find a manga with such unconventional themes.
