Three years ago, I shared the first volume of this God Eater parody series, Again #1 Stay With Me Till Dawn, but I didn’t understand much about the story. Today, three more volumes are out in total, and I’ve read two wikis plus a few other pages found through web searches, and
I went from “I don’t understand jack shit about God Eater” to “I’ve got the general picture but how the hell does this particular doujinshi series relate to it”. I guess it’s a progress?
Ah well, anyway, here we are, with a repack of the four volumes. I included the volume 1 that I already shared as well, it’s simpler to make it a full (…for now! The story is still ongoing) repack.
The contents, are quite the rollercoaster.
Story-wise, You have a combination of vanilla, sex with love and strong mutual emotions, rape, despair, hope, prospects about the future alternatively dramatic or brimming with hope.
It’s all about Alisa Amiella’s past and present. In the volumes 2 and 3, we watch her past as a sex doll, she was hypnotized and mindbroken into being a cum dump in the hands of nasty evil men. In the volumes 1 and 4 we have flashbacks from a more recent past, as Alisa has vanilla sex, full of mutual love, with her leader Lindow Amamiya, who accepts her and grants her a form of moral salvation. Above it all is a shadow of more drama, as Lindow is (airquotes: wikipedia says it’s all BS) “supposed” to be dead and the evil masterchief makes a comeback. But it’s all very confusing, I found, the way it’s written.
Even art-wise, it’s also a rollercoaster, there are amazing ups, finely refined art (the vanilla chapters) and/or very litle thin black bar censorship (the volume 4), and downs, poorer art (the rape parts) and/or disgusting blur mosaics censorship (the volumes 1-3). All in all, I think it’s still worth readings, so: thanks a lot to N04h and Doujin-Moe!!
The titles of those four works I share are:
– Again #1 Stay With Me Till Dawn
– Again #2 Flashback Memories
– Again #3 All That Heaven Allows
– Again #4 Blue Tear In My Hands
