Great complex story
A bit of love, lots of psychological and sporadic intense action YE!AH!
the bits of love (and scenes) where pint point missile gide action is d acurate mature love, this i liked a lot
The action is sometimes gore like realistic, intense and short, great mental fights
The art just GGGGGGGGGRRRRREAT the menta ilusions superb!! what a great imaginaiton of the mangaka.
The story very complex and u have to think a lot, love how the mangaka digs on hte scharactercs minds and u find out why they are who they are.
The ending, just magnificent, a great way to close a wonderfull story
I didnt give it a 10 because of a bit pull-push excess at the ending but for th rest MARVELOUS STORY MUST READ!
Eternal Sabbath was a good manga. I liked the plot and the idea, but many things could have been improved. For one, I absolutely despised Mine Kujyou and Sakkaki. Both of them are extremely rash and idiotic in their approach to things. While Mine is SUPPOSED to be very analytical and observant; in truth, she never thinks through any of her actions and causes a lot of unnecessary consequences and deaths. Like she has said herself, she "really cannot do anything right", and often exacerbates a situation. While her intentions are good, she really needs to think through her actions and their ramifications. She is also very ugly. I do not know why the mangaka gave her this ugly, middle age hair cut. I believe the manga would have been better if there had been a stronger female character and the approach to resolve the conflict was smarter. There was none of the "outsmarting" the enemy but just pure ESP and violence used to "win" a battle. All in all, it was a good manga but definitely nothing stellar.

In my opinion this manga could turn into a movie. It has a unique plot that just grabs you in. It also has plenty of psychology which makes you understand the characters more. As for the ending, it shocked me. I know it may be a cliche to some, but I never read another manga that has an ending like that. Overall, people should read it.
I loved it....very complex..great character and plot development......although the sci fi factor was there....in concerning the human mind, and emotions it touched thoroughly on many issues. BUT WHY THE BITTER ENDING...although it was happy...kinda
Great Start, Rough End
Although their conversations were well constructed, and each character have a solid personality, the conclusion wasn't strong enough to leave an influence. One reason could be that questions the antogonist posed in beginning of the manga were left unanswered.
This reminded me of Mars, another work of the mangaka, were everyone just have to have some tragic past, that they have not dealt with. This manga may not hold a candle against Monster or Death Note, but it is worth the read.
Well, this was one of the most thrilling psychological/ drama manga i have read, and i have read my share. It was great how the mangaka showed us what darkness can be hidden in the human mind and heart, but also was very sad to see at the same time. The ending was sad, yet fulfilling and i got emotionally attached to the charaters. The bad part is that it really did not flesh out all the storyline to bring it to its maximum potential.
I have to recommend this to anyone looking for a great psychological thrill ride.
Wow. This is certainly the deepest manga I've read (since I normally read light-hearted ones...-__-). It could make you feel quite grim though. But if you're a person who likes psychology, philosophy or simply likes to think, this might just be for you. Plus it has a wonderful artwork, as expected from the author of Mars. (whom I admire now...) Haven't read much of it yet, but so far it got me hooked. I can tell the author puts a lot of thought and effort into this.
I loved the sci-fi concept of it, plus the characters were really awesome and the romance between Mine and that guy was really cute. I liked the ending actually (because I didn't know it was cliche) and it's the kind of manga that'd make you think. The art was really beautiful too.
A brilliant story that would otherwise rate a 9 for me, except for the really cliched ending. In fact, I think it's right at the top of my list of "most disappointing endings" in a manga. (-_-)
An original plot, sympathetic characters. I didn't get bored even once and I was able to discuss with the material. A very good ending in my opinion. I rarely sacrifice my sleep to read manga.
