In 18th century, seeking freedom and equality, the event that become the starting point of modern French society, the French revolution, began. There was one more protagonist that lived within that darkness, Henry Charles Sanson. He was the fourth generation family head of the Sanson Family, and executioner of Paris. This is the history of him nobly facing such harsh fate.
By the mangaka of Kokou no Hito
I loved Kokou no Hito, so I've been looking forward to this ever since it was first announce. And I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. Amazing art too. I can't wait for volume 2.
Kurihara Rui (Japanese model/actor) going to portray Henry Charles Sanson for upcoming Innocent vomic. Personally, he looks like real-life version of Henry.
Volume 2 is out.
I caught up with the raws of this the other day. I should be getting to translating V3 in the next week or two depending on when Utopia Scans does a digital scan of it. I really like the way this series has been going. I can't quite describe the feel to it all that well. But you feel for the dramatic parts where it's trying to sort of examine a dark side of humanity, but also it has those sort of bizarre scenes which are I think intended to be both dramatic and funny. Like it's trying to have this contast of the pomp of the Pre-revolutionary France era with all of its nobles living comfortably with a sort of madness in them to preserve their family honor and reputations. Then there's the contrast of that with the common folk, dying and such. A lot of people are seemingly pretty crazy. And then there's Charles who "maintains his innocence" despite this crazy world around him and his ideas clashing with the fate he's thrown into.
Marie-Joseph kinda becomes a secondary protagonist later on. The conflicts increase and the story expands, and I've found it really enjoyable so far.
