Book Description

Ludwig II Vol. 2 (Yaoi Manga)

The kingdom of Bavaria was absorbed into the German Empire during the latter half of the 19th century. The stunningly handsome king of Bavaria— who never married and who would have operas and plays privately staged for him—wandered between fantasy and reality, alone in his extravagant crystal palace, Neuschwanstein. “I want to remain an eternal mystery to myself and others,” Ludwig II once said, and now we reach the final act of his drama.

Format:Paperback
In volume two of Ludwig II, the king's slow descent into madness begins to take form, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. It leaves the reader wondering if what Ludwig experiences is just in his head, or if he is making it a reality. With his own men plotting to usurp the throne, Ludwig swings back and forth between making rational choices and taking outlandish actions.

Because of these royal conspiracies, Ludwig's relationship with Hornig begins to falter. Keeping Hornig around helps to keep his mind focused on reality, but it also hinders him in his desire to let go and lose himself in his own fantastical world. When it comes down to it, Ludwig knows that his dream as the extravagant king must come to an end, and he refuses to take Hornig with him in his downward spiral. The reader is told from the start of the first volume how Ludwig's life comes to an end, and now in volume two, they get to witness the events leading up to his demise.

Keep in mind, this is historical fiction. You Higuri has taken eras, legends, and historical figures before and put her own creative spin on them. Her works usually include a romantic situation between two men, but unlike typical yaoi manga, there is always far more plot than simply two men finding love. This series is appropriate for mature readers (the book is labeled 16+) who enjoy both romance and intrigue. And like in her other works, there are sexual situations drawn in a tasteful and airy manner.

This miniseries is one of Higuri's earlier works, and it shows in her art style. She has signature eyes and asymmetrical frames and masters long hair, but the art is a bit more simplistic than in her later works, such as Cantarella and Gorgeous Carat.
