Bizenghast Volume 8 Bizenghast #8 From the backcover A violent last stand is about to commence in the city of Bizenghast between Dinah and Mephohetka Can Dinah hold her own against this powerfully twisted demon or will she like all the others be sucked into the nightmareDinah a clincally insane protagonist living in an abandoned mill town with her sociopathic Aunt teams up with the only other child in town to dispell the horros they find down in the long lost Sunken Mausoleum Challenged by a terrible spectre to free all the tormented souls of the lost graveyard Dinah slowly recovers her sanity by working with her friend Vincent to untangle the riddles of the ghosts' many deaths My letter retraction Sorry tokyopop I honestly thought the series wasn’t finished glad to see I was wrong about that because I’m glad I saw the climactic conclusion to these series Things happened really fast here one major event after another by the end the plot felt very rushed I guess the manga got cancelled a bit too soon so the author had to uickly finish the story and tie all the loose ends thankfully you can see how everything had been planned out from the beggining I wish there was at least one volumeAll in all I really enjoyed reading this series first as a teen and even when I was rereading it again now but the ending left me a little disappointed So the Truth Comes OutNot a bad series What with all the architectures surrealistic dreams and nice gothic dresses it’s too bad this series came to an end At least the creator didn’t drag her feet story wise Very imaginative dark fantasy with something slightly nightmarish The whole series very much recommended Unbelievably a happy ending for all who are deserving of it except for the poor Auntie I love this series the characters the storyline and the artwork Sad to see it end My favourite character is Edaniel 3 Honestly my rating for this is so high because the end to Bizenghast was so satisfying so original just like the rest of the story but with a hint of a cliche it didn't have a depressing ending and we all know that M Alice LeGrow worked very hard on it in order to give her fans what she believed we deserve a proper conclusion She is unlike some other authors who once their series are dropped or stopped due to their publishing house being shut down they just totally drop it and don't try to put out any other content from the series Anyway this volume was so riveting and a bit grotesue in some parts like it really did make me cringe but only out of fear and disgust but the good kind of disgust as in I felt immersed in the story like I was there with Dinah The climax of this volume so climax of the climax? made me really sad but there was so much going on that I could only feel a little sad I knew there had to be something something redeemable for all that had happened to our favorite brothers and there was They came back thank god unscathed and all thanks to Dinah And Vincent too had been there all along I suppose he had been forgetting his memories but he still felt a connection to Dinah and a connection to that town so he stayed and he followed her ghost after she died Dinah too forgot some important things as a ghost But they both instantly remembered much if not all of their lost memories once they found the mausoleum together again just like at the start of this whole story Those two started out as clueless kids and it ended with their corpses rotting away in the ground and their spirits free inhabiting the mausoleum as tower guard replacements of Edrear and Edaniel's sisters forever I suppose Lala was one of the tower guards huh? And Eniri killed her We never really found out what happened to Eniri though Did she die? Was she banished? Did she simply cease to be because she was inadeuate? I don't know But thank god that witch's ghost finally died When she twisted that rod of a cross in her chest when she was still alive and broke a piece off in her chest she must have been casting a curse upon herself and upon that town In vengeance perhaps or in her own way of ridding the world of sorrows she wanted to come back and rule the world She was a mean ghost however She revealed her dark side once Edrear killed himself because he deemed himself inadeuate and dangerous to Dinah due to Maphohetka's brainwashing and she no longer had any man to seduce I am just so glad that all of my favorite characters turned out okay in the end And surprisingly this volume didn't feel forced or rushed to me It felt like it was the perfect ending to that arc I did hear though that M Alice LeGrow had initially intended the series to end with 13 volumes Perhaps this went according to plan and the other 4 volumes we would have had would have been of a brand new arc with Vincent and Dinah as tower guards? I kind of doubt it I think that she cut out the entirety of an arc she probably planned to add after this one ended with just another volume or two and took her planned ending for the whole series and beautiful constructed it into the ending of this arc But it really didn't feel rushed or forced even if this isn't how she originally intended the series to end But I really do think that this arc was coming to a close anyway so that was probably a lot of help Even so she still did an amazing job Ah this was truly was a wonderfully dark and amazing story and volume to read I am sure that I will read the whole story over again someday Again and again I bet It's dark and twisted but not sickeningly so It's like the perfect story for edgy middle schoolers and edgy high schoolers I don't recall it being difficult to obtain this volume but I'm a big fan of Marty LeGrow and follow her online so I bought it as soon as it came out from RightStuf TokyoPop went out of business so this final volume was printed based upon online purchases rather than stocking Borders shelves like the others That also partially explains both the two year gap between volumes 7 and 8 and the higher uality of this volume the paper is clean and white the cover glossy and gorgeous It is disappointing that the demise of TokyoPop led to this series being cut short I really would have loved to see 5 10 extra volumes between numbers one and three; to see Dinah and Vincent and Edaniel and sometimes Edrear though he's a bit boring navigating endless vaults and exploring the traumatized psyches of ghosts Still if you want Bizenghast you can always buy the ashcans at LeGrow's Etsy I like them but I've fallen behind on purchasing new ones Okay final volume The art is gorgeous It is really uite amazing how much it has changed I do miss the early gothhorror style but I like the beauty and complexity of the new work I feel like this volume pulls no punches I also noticed a lot of fairy tale and literary references which I enjoyed I do sort of wish Hetka's backstory was complex As is it's a little flatboring Still she's an exceedingly creepy ghost SPOILERS AHEADI found two major characters committing suicide in one volume to be kind of a lot but I do like that Dinah knows she will be coming back so it isn't as heavy and disturbing as it might have been I also legit cried when she gets to see her mother again and when she says goodbye to Aunt Jane and of course when she and Vincent are reunited I think the ending is as happy as one could wish for consideringEND SPOILERSOverall this is an excellent comic series for horror fans fans of uirky goth girls and fans of ghost stories in general Definitely pick it up if you can I can't believe how long i waited to read the final volume I saw some unfavorable reviews and had difficult finding it so i delayed even though i have followed the series from its first volumes There are some faults the artwork did lose some of its marvel over time but the raw emotion remained For those profound heart breaking moment it well earned these stars particular when Dinah kissed Edrear Edrear was always my favorite and I'd been hoping the romantic tension between them would amount to something It delivered in a big way I bawled for about twenty minutes actually Her reuniting to Vincent was rather sweet but for me didn't hold the passion of Edrear Dinah herself progressed wonderfully bit by bit through the series This volume was the hardest to get my hands on but I'm so incredibly glad I could The cliffhanger in the seventh volume left me needing The ending of this one was uite satisfactory even if it did call in the magic makes it better to help fix everything This didn't bother me as much as it would in any other series as magical solutions were offered up many times before The artwork in this volume was much better than the previous and the story developed much faster than in the first few volumes view spoilerAs for the ending with Dinah and Vincent reunited in death I have to say it was rather pleasant I'm glad she couldn't just magic away all her problems but that Vincent wasn't separated forever I'm a little unclear as to their appearance at the cathedral but perhaps a few rereads will clear up my confusion Edit A reread did clear up my confusion and I'm very happy that Dinah and Vincent became mausoleum guards together so they can continue with their adventures forever hide spoiler
