Terrible ending...

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.

It was worth it.

if you like gore,psychological thriller twisted human engineered kinda stories.then i recommend this manga.
eternal sabbath explores the selfishness of immortality,playing god etc and the right to exist no matter how different you are.
and the art is really good,the plot is amazing but the ending..the ending is good actually but sad...
nonetheless a good read if you're into deep plots.

I'm not really into the mangaka's other works, but this one hit the nail on the head for me. Although I had deja vu pretty often since I read a ton of excellent sci-fi novels so far, it still has a nice impact, plus does involve a fair romantic plot. It certainly is worth giving a try. Personally, I did not find it dark or depressing at all - on the contrary, exciting and easy-to-follow, I'd say.

I've been meaning to read this for a long time now. and I finally did. I want to share my feelings about it to everyone, now that I finished. the feeling of sadness, warmth, complexity, humanity.. it is able to open so many eyes it should be read by anyone. even if it is for the sole reason of not wanting to live in ignorance. as soon as I can, I'm going to re-read it. and take my time. because once wasn't nearly enough. to understand everything the author tried to convey to us, readers. I am really happy that I decided to read it. even if I was a little rude to people closest to me meanwhile and ignored them more or less. and still do, just for the sake of writing this comment..
make yourself a real favor and read it.

This is an excellent manga. It is intelligently written and with just the right amount of romance and emotional impact. The characters are great. I give this one a 10.

I thought it was pretty good. Alot of interesting characters in it. I didn't like how it ended though. The whole "me against the world". To me it wasn't as interesting as the sections involving Yuri, her mom, and Kimiko. Those were smaller and more personal and intimate. I enjoyed those alot.

Plus it gets very handed with its anti-genetic engineering, anti-animal testing. Nice themes, but I would have picked up on it without the constant monologues.

A Masterpiece

Eternal Sababath is one of the best mangas I have read so far. It was psychological thrilling, and even incorportated romance, genetics, and more scientific aspects. It was well developed. It was beautiful. It debates many questions of morality without ruining the atmosphere.

But, the only thing I don't like was the ending. It was a bit abrupt, kind of contrived and a bit lacking too. But overall a good series.

She drew Mars? She certainly has talent. Her artwork has improved A LOT, and after I read this, I am looking forward to her future works (Mars is another story =|) Those of you who like sci-fi and psychology would definitely enjoy this. The story is solid enough and all or at least most of the loose ends are tied up at the end. Plus, I love how the romance was incoperated into the story without making it suck (ie, just the right amount of romance). One thing that I didn't like was the whole hypnosis thing. it's a last resort kind of thing but... ever heard of 'hypnotic suggestion"? ~~~Yeah. Anyway that was my only pet peeve. Overall, this was a very good sci-fi psychological thriller.

This is one anime that I have to say was best translated. Everything was so clear but deep and mysterious. All the scenes felt like it flowed into each other creating an effect on me of not being able to stop, which I missed for a long time. DONT READ what other people say because this anime requires a bit of education and intelligence to understand. Unless u admit ur dumb and wanna read brainless manga like onepiece or naruto, then dont pay attention to those that cant figure out whats happening cause they're just immature kids. Eternal Sabbath truely is a masterpiece.
