Divine Blood: Semester Start by Luke Green

An Incredible Manga Using Words

In Divine Blood, we are introduced to a red headed woman of Asian descent of whom bullets do no harm to her and physical combat doesn’t affect her. Meet Mao Semezou, mother of the Semezou triplets, exorcist, mercenary, and amateur web journalist. She is on the hunt for an American girl who was missing for two days.

Right from the start, we are taken into a world where things are not as they seem and appearances are deceiving. It’s a very interesting blend of different cultures and the supernatural from getting rid of the dead to the use of magic. While the military aspect can be a bit overwhelming, I enjoy politics whether it’s in relation to the actual government or within the characters in reference to where each wants to go and how they each want to proceed forward. The characters are fun and exciting, likable and interesting. The characters are also strong and witty and the humor is refreshing through some of the more serious parts.

Everyone who loves anime should read this book! I would recommend this book for everyone who likes fantasy and science fiction, myths and legends, robots and super powers. And yes, mercenaries.
