One of the best series ever

One of the best series I have ever read. I'd only wish it would be a little bit longer and the pace a little slower. Also, this might not be for a casual reader, especially someone who is unfamiliar with Japanese mythology and Buddhism. I had to do a lot googling while reading, but it made me discover a whole new interest in Japanese mythology and ancient culture. You can see that the author spend a lot of time doing research to have such a profound knowledge of the lore so that he could reinvent it in a completely new and unexpected way.

too focused on history

dont get me wrong, i love historical manga and whatnot, but this manga is too focused in giving lectures on the ancient civilization, he forget to make the manga readable and tolerable. there is so many names of races, places, and time, you easily get lost and confused of what really happen. though in the end it all went really weird (one of the weirdest ending ever), the journey itself should be exciting and pleasant, but it is not and feel like a chore because the story is too condensed. i personally think the historical and religious idea behind it is interesting, and i applaud the mangaka for managing to mash several facts together to become fiction, but i do think his approach fell short. a couple more volumes to make the narrative considerably easy to follow is better, instead of condensing everything to 6 chapters.

all in all, this manga is great for any history otaku, but for laymen just wanting to pass time in peace its better to read other manga.
