Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up–Eternal Sabbath is a genetically engineered human with the power to hack into peoples brains and reprogram them to his liking. Those who try to resist him suffer harsh mental and physical punishments. He may have finally met his match, though, in beautiful and brilliant scientist Mine. The protagonists are compelling and the melodramatic techno-thriller plot should interest fans of both the romance and science-fiction manga genres. Violent or sexual images drawn from dramatic angles move the story along at a rapid pace. With more action than dialogue, this volume perfectly illustrates mangas wide appeal among older teens.–Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

I have read 6 of the mangas, and am eagerly awaiting the release of the 7th.

The art is amazing, and the way the pages are laid out is organized and neat, not crowded like some other ones I've read.

I read this because Fuyumi Soryo is the manga-ka of my favorite series; Mars. The plot of this manga is thrilling and interesting from a psychological point of view. I never put the book down once the first time I read it, and I have reread it several times since then. The art is also some of the best I've ever seen in a manga. Eternal Sabbath has even replaced Mars as my favorite series.

Very intelligent work. Fuyumi Soryo knows a lot about psychology and biology, I am impressed. The story line is also significant and the moral dilemmas are interesting. It's hard to determine were you stand because the morality of the characters is so blurred, but that's what makes it so interesting. I read volumes one and two, at first I couln't understand the cold and careless demeanor of the main character, but later I came to like it. It will make you wonder and question who you are.

By Eros Shadow

MARS, Fuyumi Soryo's Shojo title released in the United Sates, made a big hit with the loving fangirls and fanboys. A lot of people, who arn't big Shojo fans, are probably turned off by Soryo's work. Well non-loving fans, START LOVING! Eternal Sabbath is chocked full of science/psychology/neurology/philosphy(if you will)! Also it contains plenty of that wonderful gore that fans love so well.

MARS encaptures a beautiful developing love story although it is not all about love, avid readers of MARS have seen a slight glint of the "dark-side" of life. Or, the dark-side of life that Soryo percieves and has the ability to portray in workings. Eternal Sabbath flat out GOES THERE! ES breaks down the human mind into components exploring different outlets that potentially boggle the mind. There is a great deal of explanation involved as well with the machines they use and how they work. Readers can never get bored of these explanations, although they may lose some if not read with a close eye. The gore also draws the reader into the compelling plotline begging for more. (Yes kids! It has blood..but it's not in color so it's okay) Each manga is full of suspense and a reader will never know what is to come.

It is a marvel that Soryo has the ability to transfer from one genre to another creating a wide range of work that draws any reader to it. Soryo is definatly a universal author for every reader to enjoy. This is a must read for anyone who respects beautiful imagery that Soryo creates and the amazing plotline!

By para on December 7, 2012
Format: Paperback
A mysterious person who can manipulate the minds of others seems to wander aimlessly, altering the thoughts and fates of those he encounters arbitrarily. But when he runs into one of the few people who he can't affect, something strange happens - he finds this person interesting...

I read Eternal Sabbath as part of a book challenge and didn't know much about it going in. I'm delighted to have found what seems to be a captivating, character driven paranormal story with heavy sci-fi and mystery elements. The two main characters are highly intriguing, and this first volume sets up a good amount of groundwork for future developments while keeping things moving at a nice clip. I can't describe the story in more detail without getting into spoilers, so I'll simply say I enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading more.

The art isn't spectacular nor elaborate, but is solid and suits the story. Characters are distinct, consistently drawn and easily identifiable, and the straightforward style lets the artist really make an impact when called for.

Overall ES Vol. 1 is a strong start to what looks to be a great series.
