Ending? Aug 31, 2008
Actually, this is pretty good. The developing story arc draws you in and the artwork is good. The characters aren't too one dimensional and was worth reading. The low rating is more due to me finding out that issue 10 is the final issue published and this story is not completed. I've ran into this more than once with manga and am considering just waiting until a series is over until I start buying it.
Jealousy leads to Tragedy Feb 17, 2007
Cesare starts his affair with Sancia D'Aragon, wife of his youngest brother Jofre. Sancia to secure his attention seduces and uses Juan Borgia. In this volume, Higuri emphasizes the lifelong rivalry between Cesare and Juan. Cesare resents Rodrigo's love and praises for Juan. Juan resents and hates Cesare for his demonic power, intelligence, charm, loyal retainers (Chiaro, Volpe), and the love of the important women in their lives (Vanozza, Lucrezia, Sancia) even in the adversities of his life. Juan captures and tortures Chiaro almost to the death which leaves a weakness for the Vanozza demon to exploit that increases the darkness within Cesare. The most intense part of the volume is that the chaotic and destructive rivalry between Cesare and Juan comes to a tragic and explosive end.
