[Manga] Count Cain

**Attention Contain Spoiler**

Written by Kaori Yuki, Count Cain is a Gothic, Horror and Mystery manga series. It can be divide in two series. The first one, The Cain Saga, count five volumes and the second one, God Child, count 8 volume.


The Cain Saga

Delve into the tortured past of Earl Cain C. Hargreaves, charismatic heir to a wealthy family full of secrets, lies and unthinkable crimes. The prequel to the Godchild series, The Cain Saga follows the young Cain as he attempts to unravel the secrets of his birth, all the while solving each new mystery that comes his way.

God Child

Deep in the heart of 19th century London, a young nobleman named Cain walks the shadowy cobblestone streets of the aristocratic society into which he was born. Forced to become an earl upon the untimely death of his father, Cain assumes the role of head of the Hargreaves, a noble family with a dark past. With Riff, his faithful manservant, and Mary Weather, his 10-year-old half sister, Cain investigates the mysterious crimes that seem to follow him wherever he goes.

OH GOD! I’m never tired to see Kaori Yuki artwork, to me it’s one of the best mangaka. No matter the series you take, you will always find page with so much details. The characters design are just awesome.

I read this series a couple of year ago, but it left such in impression on me that I remember most of the story, mostly from God Child, since is the one I liked the most. Kaori Yuki like to write twisted story with tortured characters and this series make no exception.
Cain Hargreaves, is born from an incestuous relationship between is mother and father. After Cain birth his mother became crazy and killed herself by jumping by the window. After the event Alexis, Cain father, said that since Cain “killed” his own mother he should be named Cain, in relation of Cain, son of Adam and Eve first killer of the History.
What a great way to start in life, if this is not twisted I wonder what it is.

The whole theme of the series is really dark, is categorized as Gothic/Horror manga after all. People whom enjoyed Black Butler, might enjoy Count Cain since both series share some similarities.
