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!

ES is a really interesting psychological thriller with supernatural elements. The characters are well development and i liked the pacing of the story.

Another one that definitely stands out from many of the other manga out there. The story, art, and depth make this one worth reading regardless of which genre you prefer.

I'm a fan of Souryo Furumi's drawing. I think that was what attracted me to this series first. But the storyline, character development was done marvellously. Although this is a psychological, seinen manga, I think what drove the protagonist at the end of this story is Love, in order to protect those he love. To sum it up, the love feeling featured here is stronger than in any other shoujo mangas that I've read.
It's really-really good. Download and read it. You will not regret it.

This manga it's really good, the story it's really strong and full of complexity, you can manage the reading according to your own way of thinking. What's right and wrong acccording to your concepts, moral and values? That's the hiting point of the plot, the right and wrong, the consequences off your own actions, the society line betwenn the right and wrong and the inner thoughts of the human brain (and the brain mysteries itself), if you want a tired of the usual softh or similar mangas (sporty, romantic, etc.) you must read this manga that goes right down to the issue of morals, murder, concience, science, technology, love, society, etc. Read Eternal Sabbath... you will really enjoy it.

[edit by mod, possible spoiler]

great concept where it deals with how the human brain functions and with the art of manipulation someone can easily blend into society so to speak. Truly again GREAT concept and by the way for you people who likes this kind of stuff the protagonist (15yrs old) have sex with an more mature women, read to find out how this relationship got started.
