    1. I felt almost bad giving this only one star When I was younger say, 11 or 12 , I adored Yuu Watase She was one of the very first mangakas who introduced me to the manga world Looking back on it now, I almost feel like she s overrated Although, her manga is great for beginners I thought her work was the greatest thing and that there was nothing else like it Now that I ve read manga, her work suddenly seems below par I ve seen the same plot and the same stereotypical characters too many times bef [...]

    2. This is my favourite of Watase s series The topic is slightly dark, and the protagonist slightly less sweet than her others.

    3. i think i was in highschool when i came across the anime while channel surfing and saw it on AXN.i loved it right away.well there were some disturbing points in the story like incest between aki and aya and well the bed scenes and violence.but like i said before it s essential to the story since it revolves around aki, aya and touyaever i had to secretly watch the show since it contains mature stuff which i m not allowed to watchhehe and i had to compete for the telly loli think the love story b [...]

    4. En su momento me fascin la historia, hasta cuando era tan complicada que ya no reconoc a casi a los personajes.En esta relectura ha vuelto a engancharme el inicio como la primera vez Aya es una chica de 16 a os normal y corriente, y su hermano mellizo Aki tambi n Lo que les pasa en su cumplea os les deja descolocados y sin saber muy bien que hacer Nada les ha preparado para que su propia familia se vuelva contra ellos S que Toya es el personaje del que Aya se siente atraida, pero en este primer [...]

    5. This manga is described as horror and that fits because it is much darker than Yuu Watase s other series There is a lot of violence and this is displayed clearly from the vivid illustrations to the story itself it is rated correctly for older teens But it is also a very good story there is folklore, fantasy, scifi and definitely romance because this is after all a shojo manga Give it a read, I thought it was a a very good story that had me laughing and cringing and crying.

    6. I found out Ayashi No Ceres back in 2010, and since then I ve been telling myself I had to read it Again, why did it take me so long to actually do it It has a pretty cool story, and I really like the art.So hello manga world I m here to stay.

    7. There s some pretty interesting stuff happening hereThe plot has me interested so far and I love all these characters I ll definitely be reading to see where this goes.

    8. I love this series and I am rereading it again It has a great story with some twists and has some awesome main characters.

    9. 3 5 This review is also available on my blog I ended up getting the whole set of this series for a really good deal online So, you know what that means That I will be reviewing all of the volumes as I read them I m not sure how quickly that will go by, but either way, it s happening.This first volume was alright aside from the fact that the first page in my copy was missing ugh Not amazing, not horrible, but I m sure it will only get better from here I have read several other series by Watase, a [...]

    10. Oh, Yuu Watase For a for chunk of the mid 00s to early 10s, her work was absolutely inescapable within the manga world Gorgeous artwork combined with surprisingly well written stories for the shojo genre, anyway , Watase s pioneering works are unrivaled even today Of her many excellent multi volume series, none can compare to her darkest and most mature manga, CERES, CELESTIAL LEGEND.The story of the first volume is quite straight forward When Aya Mikage and her twin brother turn sixteen, the gi [...]

    11. Ceres Celesual Legend review Art From the Artist of Fushigi Yugi The art is soft and shojo and really a joy to look at the boys are hot and sexy and bishi while the girls are delicate the art is really well done B Characters Aya and Aki Aya is a strong willed fun girl with a ticked off side like most shojo girls its your basic set up She grows and learns thought out the manga making some new allies along the way Aki is her twin brother and thats really all we know about him they are close but th [...]

    12. One day a fisherman saw a tennyo bathing in the water He stole her hagoromo and he made the tennyo, who couldn t return to the heavens, his bride The tennyo had no choice, and she even bore a child One day, the child sand a song about the whereabouts of her hagoromo, which she found and went home to the skies Review for entire series This was one of the first manga I read as a young teenager and along with Red River is one of the things that got me into manga and anime in general This is a darke [...]

    13. This review may contain a some small spoilers also I have re read this many times, from weekly in Shojo Beat when it first came to American, to online, to hard copies at the library I love Ceres As a series it is so addictive The storyline is creepy, interesting, violent, and romantic The complex story of Aya is the most griping part, as well as how she interacts with all the people in her life she is battling this inner demon most of the series, an angel named Ceres However, in this book that i [...]

    14. Read for TBRTakedown 2.0 First book in a seriesA re read of one of my favorite manga series I got so many nostalgic feelings and anticipation for future events in the story to unfold This first volume is not perfect and does move pretty fast but the slapstick humor juxtaposed with the horrifying events happened to Aya seem so natural and feels wonderful being able to find humor in difficult situations The pacing reminds of me of anime in how scenes and panels transition and are framed which gav [...]

    15. I read this series in high school I think it was the second of her manga series that I started I love Yuu Watase s art style and I ve read and own pretty much everything she s published I finished the series because I like her and wanted closure than from enjoyment of the storyline What starts as a typical girl meets hot guy and falls in love story gets progressively creepy and weird as the storyline progresses into who the main characters were in a previous life and their relationships Basica [...]

    16. Meh This series is so so the Mikage family is descended from a legendary celestial maiden of Japanese myth who married a human when he stole the feather robe that she needed to get back to Heaven For some reason, at the age of 16 every woman of Mikage blood needs to be checked to see if she carries the powers of the celestial maiden Aya has the powers, in spades, and this means that her family must kill her for some reason We don t really know why the maidens are a threat to their family, and it [...]

    17. The series was a big ole confusion to me when I was younger But rereading it helped see it was cool No holds on this manga, anything goes and that made it intense I will say I had my favorite characters Yuhi was always my favorite because this story was so dark and he just made everything seem like it would turn out okay Him and that crazy oba San I loved the connection between Aya and Aki as a bro and sis, really pulled at your emotions But who I found really bland was Tooya Just too blah, mayb [...]

    18. I m not going to write a lot of manga reviews, simply because there are so many volumes in each series and I go through them far faster than novels However, this series deserves a recommendation Yuu Watase is without a doubt my favorite manga artist Her artwork is always gorgeous, granted most popular shojo manga art IS, but hers really stands out as excellent This series combines typical shojo supernatural magical girl business with elements of mythology and it contains an adult twist on things [...]

    19. At Aya s 16th birthday she is called into her grandad s house for an important family meeting She is a fun loving girl who loves to do karaoke Her grandfather orders her killed because she is bad for the family s well being She has inherited Celestial blood and unfortunately that would make her too powerful Her twin brother Aki is made a prisoner since they believe they can harness his power Nothing has prepared her for this Toya a handsome stranger seems to be watching out for her but he is und [...]

    20. This book is fantastic Aya Mikage and her twin brother Aki attend a not so sweet sixteen birthday party thrown by their grandfather All of their family are dressed in black suits and the atmosphere is like a funeral When they made to touch their birthday gift a mummified hand which brings forward their awakened celestrial powers, Aya seeing visions of blood and sudden slashed wounds on Aki s body Turns out Aya has the celestrial heavenly maiden Ceres reincarnated inside her, but Aki s powers com [...]

    21. Yuu Watase is an amazing storyteller and draws some gorgeous artwork She is one of my favorite manga authors and I love everything she has done The characters in Ceres are amazing and imaginative and extremely easy to relate to She is able to capture the character s emotions amazingly with a realistic outlook on life Aya s reaction to finding out about her supernatural powers was real and her ongoing fight through all of her problems strikes the reader as something that would ring true My favori [...]

    22. I own the entire series of Ceres, and for good reason This is a series that has many levels to it, and isn t just action or romance or horror, but so much There are so many wonderful things that go into Ceres, and though it is much darker than Yuu Watase s other works, it is still wonderful The only problem I really have with it is the fact that Watase, because she doesn t want the series to be too dark, often interjects moments of comedy at the wrong times However, despite this, the series is [...]

    23. I m giving it a four for the art and nostalgia value It s a bit melodramatic or at least I read it that way thanks to the anime.This is my review for the whole series FYI Too much rape, it was gratuitous at points and I sometimes think it s lazy character development although in this case the attempted gang rape I think was for shock value Idk The art is stunning, absolutely beautiful I liked the fusion of technology and science fiction with a bunch of disparate world myths It was still super ma [...]

    24. Yuu Watase has done it again After reading Mysterious Play, I was hooked This book is much darker though While Aya starts out as being what one can only describe as really annoying that doesn t last long She is put through so much in the course of these books that by the end of the first book she is a completely changed character Despite the books sad premise, I have to say this is one of the most original, heart renching books I ve ever read Nothing has come close to Ceres and even though I was [...]
