After Caine's epiphany in volume 3, he is now actively seeking out the members of Delilah and his diabolical father. However, his personal quest may cost him the life of most esteemed butler in return.Despite the fact that this manga series seems to be evolving into more of a horror story than an urban fantasy, it still remains fascinating. Here we get to see more of Riff and Caine together as well as Riff's continued willingness to sacrifice everything for his master. I really enjoy the dynamic between Caine and Riff, I¿ve been hoping for more of a Holmes and Watson feel and I wasn¿t at all disappointed in this volume. This is the first of the series that came with an "Explicit Content" warning which I pretty much chalk up to the dog scene, although I really found Mikaila in general to be way eerier and more disturbing. Also, I can't help but wonder if something more is going on with Riff than we've seen after his encounter with the doctor.Overall this continues to be a very intriguing tale which steadily reels you in more as it goes on. This is one that I¿m kind of afraid I might be re-visiting in my sleep, as I seem to do with any well done creepy tale. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Most unfortunately the English edition of Godchild volume 4 (at least from the first printing) has numerous instances of both the art and script being censored from the original Japanese edition regarding religious content. This is also ironic since Volume 4, unlike the other volumes in the Godchild series, is shrink-wrapped and carries the "Parental Advisory for Explicit Content" graphic on the front cover, as well as a "reader discretion is advised" preamble on the inside table of contents page regarding "imagery and themes of a cultural and religious nature". Sadly, the changes ranging from obscuring to outright removing religious symbolism, comparisons, and references (including of and to historical works of art) most certainly detrimentally affect the story of “Bloody Maria” which takes up the majority of the volume 4. Yet worse, is that by altering images and completely changing dialogue regarding perhaps the most explicit and violent content of the book (in the form of a particular portrait), the air is taken out of the climax of the story. And English readers otherwise unaware are left with the question of “what is the mysterious painting that the lady of the house refuses to show to anyone actually of?” Not to mention perhaps a diluted understanding of not only one particular side story, but greater insight into the deep aspects of Godchild’s characters and its themes. Caution and sensitivity on the part of publishers might be better understood when dealing with cultural and religious issues that could certainly become inflammatory. However, I cannot agree with how this book was released in English since I feel that too much is lost in this case and must rate it as poor.

Okay, if you love, one: manga, two: drama, and three: a really hot guy. You will love this book, along with all the others. Cain is a boy that is only 17 and he is force to see death where ever he goes. But anyway you need to read this book. Thank you.
