About Buddha Manga Volume 3

Buddha Volume 3: Devadatta features story and art by Osamu Tezuka.

Bandaka's child Devadatta grows up into a world of discrimination, bullying, and overall injustice. He in turn becomes somewhat beastly and has little concern for human life. Simultaneously, Siddhartha seeks out his calling as a monk, and starts searching for the proper master to teach him the meaning of life, and more importantly, how to reconcile with death.

The series just keeps getting better

Without spoilers, there character who I thought their story was over in volume one. I thought that their purpose in the story had been fulfilled and that they had been written off. Instead they came back in this volume and were used brilliantly.
I did not know much about Hinduism before reading this, and the entire idea of ordeals and monk culture is very fascinating, and I think it is presented incredibly well. Tezuka shows the core principles of the caste system very well by showing it through characters actions and not through history dumps or long exposition. A majority of volume one is him showing how the caste system works with the contrasting lives of the different castes. I knew about castes already, but this really makes you understand fully.
There is also masterful stories weaving together again, as he always does with the series.
Only issue I have is the mirrored art.
