How could I not love gorgeous bishies, amazing art, and an all round enjoyable plot?
This manga consists of William (that guy on the cover) and how he discovers that he is a living descendant of the great Solomon (also possessing his soul) and he is the only who can elect the next king when Lucifer goes into his sleep (A.K.A. dying).
So let's meet the main guys. There is William who is a realists, he thinks in scientific facts of mathematical formulas. There is Dantalion who is a candidate for begin a Substitute and he has ties of his past linked with Solomon, he's actually pretty mysterious. There's Sytry, another candidate who I swear looks like a GIRL! And lastly there is Issac who is William's friend, just your average Devil loving person.
In the beginning I actually did not know how much I would like this since it took a long time for William to accept the fact that Devils and Angels exist in this world. But even though it takes a while for him to accept that fact, it doesn't change that things still keep going in the Demon world and Angel world.
Everyone is kept a little mysterious so it makes you want to continue reading it. I also loved how it was set in a historical time period so it adds a more feel of everything happening. There are also some facts sprinkled around, so don't worry, lots of things will be explained gradually.
Why I also have to mention the hierarchy of the ranks in both the Angels and the Demons, because that was explained amazingly and the world built was fabulous, it made me just want to go and visit the places...well mostly the Demon world.
Oh, and did I mention that there are Angels and Demons involved?--how can I say anymore.
