The Journey of Siddhartha Begins
by Professional Gentleman -
From the godfather of manga, Osamu Tezuka, the continuing story of Gautama Buddha brings even more to the field than the first volume.
The second volume gives us much of the young Siddhartha, born a fairly sickly child, as he grows and begins to question larger than life topics such as, "What happens when you die?" and "If we as classes are separated, why do we all die equally?" He proves to be a rambunctious young man as he gets older and goes out into the world with the help of a grown Tatta and ends up meeting the sexy bandit girl Migaila.
Once again I recommend this series highly. It keeps getting better and much more interesting as I continue, so I hope you join me!
