This series of eight graphic novels tells the story of Buddha's life through the stories of surrounding characters based both on actual historical figures and fictional ones. Told in the Japanese manga style it has a specific style and humour, and the themes are very mature including violence and nudity.

Really, it is embarrassing to admit how much time went by between reading Volume 2 and 3. Even given that my old library didn't appear to have any graphic novels (at least not for grown-ups), and instead I had to buy all mind on the rare trips to Grand Rapids that I could convince Andrew to take me to the comic book store. I should have bought one of these volumes every time.

Okay, so now you know how strongly I feel about Tezuka's writing. But why? It's his sense of balance. He writes about such a reverent subject -- the life of Buddha -- with such bold streaks of absolute irreverence. The artwork, too, is simple and beautiful in one frame, hideous/profane a few pages later, then total kawaii a few pages after that. He constantly has you spinning from hope to despair, admiration to disguts. It is both a departure from our everyday world and a descent into the worst of the human condition.

In this volume, Siddharta continues to seek enlightenment, gaining admirers as he goes, denying Tatta's requests of him to return to his throne, and finally giving in and accepting responsibility for Assaji, the boy who has been following them. Some of the plot in this volume seems incremental, and the asides to catch us up on other characters feel not yet justified, but I'm sure we will all end up somewhere worthwhile in the end. ( )

Devdutta's character is much different than I have known all my life. Charcaters from previous books - Naradutta, Dhempa, Thatta, Migailla - continue. I love the fact how charcters meet each other, how their stories entwine.


Of course, there are new chacters too - Bimbisara (king of Mgadh), Vishakha, Warrior Sukanda and fortune-teller Assaji. Siddharth's journey continues, albeit with obstacles.

Too small a manga this one!

Op de achterflap staat:
"Siddhartha gaat onverstoorbaar verder op zijn weg naar verlichting, hoewel hij zich keer op keer stoot tegen de harde wanden van de wereld van de bedrieglijke schijn."

Met het onverstoorbaar ben ik het niet eens en dat is nu juist ook waardoor het zo boeiend blijft. Siddhartha wordt voortdurend aan zijn jasje getrokken en telkens weer roept hij tot bijna hysterisch aan toe dat hij met rust gelaten wil worden. Dit werkt eventjes tot de volgende komt.

Dit deel gaat echter niet alleen over Siddhartha maar ook over Devadatta die zo wreed behandeld wordt door de mensheid dat hij zich daarvan afkeert en met de dieren gaat leven. Hoe dit personage met het leven van Siddhartha te maken heeft, is mij nog onbekend maar ik neem aan dat dit wel in een van de volgende delen uit de doeken gedaan gaat worden.

Naast de bekende eenvoudige en toch ook weer heel gedetailleerde tekenstijl van Tezuka word ik telkens weer verrast door de reacties van de personages. Zoals bijvoorbeeld eentje waarin een roversleider zijn roversleven opgeeft en zijn bende in staking gaat met bordjes waarop teksten staan zoals 'Lik mijn reet' en 'En mijn pensioen dan' terwijl iemand in de menigte roept "We eisen een gouden handdruk!". Anachronistische humor die bij mij heel goed valt.

Het volgende deeltje staat al voor me klaar. ( )

This third volume of Osamu Tezuka's epic tale follows its eponymous sub-title character, Devadatta, for the majority of the volume. While Siddhartha certainly makes important discoveries and finds his path firmly set, it is Devadatta's backstory and decisions that are the clear star. In a very disturbing way.

Tezuka's third volume boils down to one lesson: The weak perish, the strong survive.

Of course, the nature of strength and weakness are relative and may or may not have anything to do with physical strength, monetary strength, economic strength or any other number of strengths a human or animal can posses. This lesson is sometimes brutally demonstrated and other times a subtle whisper. In the case of a war with bees, it is beautiful in classic Tezuka illustration.

The fastest read of the Buddhas so far, it sets the stage for much bigger things to come. ( )
