Gr 10 Up
The first volume of this manga series introduces Judas and his servant, Eve. Once a mortal man, Judas carries a curse that has transformed him into the spirit of Death, and he must take the lives and souls of 666 people in order to free himself. He is unable to interact with most people—they can neither see nor feel him—so he uses a boy to do the killing. In addition to being forced to murder, the boy is also required to dress as a girl and answer to the name Eve. The story is confusing, and the art is uninspired. The stock manga characters, particularly the girls, are sometimes indistinguishable from one another, further muddling the action. The initial set-up and the dramatic red, white, and black cover may attract some readers, but there is little to keep them coming back for more.
