    This was a good volume with more action and characters. I really liked new characters Hannah and Katia as well as I am fond of Eliah. The only complaint is that sometimes it is confusing with its explanations. It can make the story hard to read. PS: It is the second time that I see my countrie's name ( Azerbaijan) in Japanese fiction. Lol This was a good volume with more action and characters.

Because while there are robots and such that are fighting and all that, these are not the otherworldly incarnations of divine will that seem to appear in Evangelion, but the direct tools of man turned against man. This is a world where because of the disease that spread through humanity, the use of robotics has been expanded far into science fiction, where robots and cyborgs exist integrated into society. Robotic parts are basically a luxury for those who can afford them. And here we start seeing that humanity has lost more than just parts of itself. Or, rather, that these external signs of the inhuman are symptoms of the inhumanity that has taken hold of humanity in general. People are desperate, in a constant struggle for survival. The weak are made to suffer. Just looking at the two new characters that show up in this book, in the form of one prostitute and one girl who was basically taken as a sex slave, and we start to see what kind of a world this is. This, really, is the first we’re seeing of life outside after the disease. The first book really didn’t much get into how people live in the twenty years after the disease. Here we finally start to see what has happened. The world of the series, set in South America, seems to revolve around drugs. Drug cartels control most of the land that the organization Propater does not, and Enoia, the boy from the beginning of the first volume, is the head of the most powerful cartel. Elijah, his son, is estranged from his father, apparently, after Hannah (the girl from the beginning of the first volume) and Elijah’s sister are taken by Propater. Elijah seems to be trying to distance himself from his father, or at least see the world without the oversight of his father, but at the moment he is still be taken by this group of mercenaries. Through it all Elijah remains rather naïve and fairly pure at heart, genuinely wanting to help people and trying to do the best he can. But a lot of that is a purity born from being kept protected by the outside world. He never had to worry about the harsher realities of life, and was always fed. This leads to some animosity towards him from others in the group, but all in all he does what he can. The whole crux of this volume is really setting up some of the personalities of the mercenaries and women the group save. We start to see the instabilities in everyone. We see that the group is really made up of damaged people looking for ways to fill the holes left in their lives that have been left by the deaths of loved ones. This is a world where no one grows up completely unscathed, after all, and even Elijah must live with the absence of his mother and sister. But while we start to get a sense of these character, we are also interrupted by the constant threat of violence. The story does move right along, and here we see the group preparing to go up against a group of Propater soldiers. The battle is opened and it’s all fairly standard from there, where the group successfully repels the first wave of attacks against them. But obviously from the traps being laid this is only the first wave and more can be expected. The battle is fairly fresh and interesting, though, and definitely visceral. I’m expecting that with the next volume things are only going to escalate, but so it goes for now. This volume did do a good job of getting a bit more into these characters, and introducing more ideas and giving a little bit more information about what happened with Enoia, though the series seems quite hesitant to show any of what’s happening with that. Neither have we learned what the real goals of Propater are, so there isn’t all that much that is known for certain about what the larger story is going to be. But the character work is solid and really that’s what’s important. I can’t say that I was blown away by this last volume, but it was well done and fun to read. While not quite as strong as the first volume, really that might just be the nature of the narrative. I’ll just have to wait and see what happens next. As for this volume, though, I give it a 7.5/10.

    This was another great volume. I wasn't super thrilled about the timeskip at first (I was like, hello, where's Hannah? She was my favorite from the first volume) but I quickly was drawn in by Elijah's story as well. But wow did this volume make me HATE Enoah from the previous volume... oh and also Kenji; he can go DIAF but I really love the characters Kachua and Helena. If anything happens to them I'll throw the book. Anyway this volume was also great with the worldbuilding and the politics. This was another great volume.

    Hiroki Endo doesn’t want to make it too easy for the reader to follow what’s going on. I was confused about what was happening at times or the motivations of certain characters. That being said, it is a thrill to read.

    The second volume of “Eden” continues the tale Elijah, a teenaged boy surviving in a world in chaos. In the end of the last book we were introduced to a new band of characters fighting a political battle against a group that is trying to win dominance over the entire planet. This is where the story picks up directly. The plot goes many interesting ways, even if it does feel even more unfocused than in volume 1.

This is where the story picks up directly. The plot goes many interesting ways, even if it does feel even more unfocused than in volume 1. Action takes over a bit, which isn’t such a good thing at this point when character and world building would be required. It was also sad to see that the series seems to move on from depicting a story of a deadly plague from two time points, concentrating merely on the consequences from now on. I thought that the introductory storyline was the strongest point of the previous book. Nevertheless, there is plenty of potential and room to grow here, and what we already get isn’t half bad.

    Okay, the most obvious statement I can make about the second volume of Eden, is just how little it shares in common with its predecessor. The first manga was set in a utopian society, where the last two people alive explained what had happened to humanity. Whereas this story, set roughly twenty years later, follows the actions of a military group somewhere in Peru. As you can imagine, this is a significant shift in tone.

The first manga was set in a utopian society, where the last two people alive explained what had happened to humanity. Whereas this story, set roughly twenty years later, follows the actions of a military group somewhere in Peru. As you can imagine, this is a significant shift in tone. It is almost like reading a completely different series, which could prove quite problematic for those that fell in love with the first outing. Thankfully, I didn't find this giant genre leap too jarring, as the final chapters of the first volume made some effort to ease the transition. And although I have zero love for the military genre, the world's post-apocalyptic background still has my keen interest. The only real issue for me is the world's significant population increase. At points, the first graphic novel hinted that humanity was down to two people, but now it seems like those pesky buggers are running around everywhere. I know there are plausible explanations for this, but I can't help but think that the author just changed his mind and decided to write about something else. I also thought the increased sexual context, and the mistreatment of women in this part raised a few eyebrows. I know this was probably so that the author could open up a philosophical debate, but I can't help but think it might have ruined the enjoyment for some readers. Despite a few issues arising in this volume, the standard remains high. The author's world feels very realistic and he has now assembled himself a good cast of characters to follow on his journey. I can't wait to see where he takes us! 5/5.

    What was maybe-okay for teens has taken a turn for the Not Okay. Lots more violence and sex--not that those things are inherently bad but I'm losing the sense of a post-apocalyptic world in the drug war we're fighting instead. If that's what we're fighting; I think I stopped paying attention. Giving the series one more volume (because I already have it out from the library, so why not) before abandoning the series.

    Disappointment. The first volume was all deserted cities and empty landscapes, and then this one has people everywhere, bustling airports, what kind of apocalypse is this? And the sex parts bothered me too, the way it was portrayed as something men need and a burden for women. It's got women being forced into prostitution, a woman with no interest in sex giving a guy a bj just to calm him down. Not gonna read any farther in this series. Disappointment.

    Okay, in this volume, I'm completely lost. The main(?) character is going around with a group of people who kill other people. And I have no idea what their aim is or who the good guys are. There's a whole lot of violence, and then some more violence. And politics and religion are in there somewhere. But, basically, I'm completely lost, and too put off by all the violence to care to figure out what's going on. I won't be reading any more volumes. Okay, in this volume, I'm completely lost.

    The dialogue is getting way too heavy handed for my tastes, not to mention the characters are starting to annoy me. The writing is starting to languish in cliches and has become boring and uninteresting. I'll give it one more issue before deciding whether or not to finish the series. Still have no idea why it's rated 18+. The dialogue is getting way too heavy handed for my tastes, not to mention the characters are starting to annoy me.

    A noticeable jump in quality regarding the visual art compared to the first volume, and Endo's writing starts to show its real potential. From this point on, Eden becomes a true roller-coaster. The visual art gets better and better with each volume, and Endo goes on to fully unleash his unconventional and visionary genius as a writer.

    Been a while since I read the prior volume, but the serial format makes it pretty easy to pick up as you go. Not the most original story ever, but tightly told, and the art is very much on point. A quick, fun read.

    Beautiful story... quite violent too. Parts reminded me of The Terminator(s) and it's a real page-turner! Looking forward to the next book! Beautiful story... quite violent too. Parts reminded me of The Terminator(s) and it's a real page-turner! Looking forward to the next book!

    Following the life of a teenage boy as he travels through the post-apocalyptic world with the companionship of a robot. Dark and not super interesting.

    The second installment of Eden adds a bit of graphic sex to the graphic violence. The character-building proceeds very slowly, but I'm still intrigued enough to check out volume 3.
