Format: Paperback
The genre that this manga falls into is one that the Japanese are clearly very fond of for the massive number of manga available that soaks itself in it. Now, there's nothing wrong with that, I consider myself a pretty big fan of the genre, I was just thinking out loud. It does of course mean that finding the best amongst such overwhelming availability is a bit of a headache. Oh, and by the way, if you hadn't guessed it from the blatant give away that is the front cover, it's that whole semi-religious fight against soul eating demons with some vague gothic background, this one London, flowing all river like underneath.

So, anyway, is this one worth getting? Well, it most certainly is worth getting; though, maybe not as your first venture into this genre, and definitely not as a first manga. For newcomers to manga the best starting point is still, in my opinion, `Fullmetal Alchemist'. Also, a better introduction into the domain of the yuri styled gothic Lolita would be `Venus Versus Virus', which has a slight edge over this one.

The story line is stupid, though, that's a good thing because the reason you're buying this is because you want to read about two absurdly sexy women killing demons. Also, as its yuri, that would be two women who seem to be in some sort of relationship. Which, by the way, is actually incredibly sweet, as is usual in yuri, and it's all the better for it. Being constantly beat round the head with naked lesbians might be nice, but I'd much rather be reading something a little tenderer and something a little more believable. Oh, wait, that's right; this is all about an immortal girl and a nun killing demons with huge guns. Okay, so it's not without an edge, I admit.

Anyway, buy it, but not as your first manga. This is good, and you'll enjoy reading it and want to buy the next one. Final thoughts: it is a lot more of the same, but that's not a bad thing by miles.

Aside from being a mouthful to say, Tetragrammaton Labyrinth is an interesting manga about a nun named Meg and a young girl named Angela who have a very close relationship. Both of the girls have been quoted to say that without the other, they would cease to exist, and this is true in the case of Angela, at least. It is too hard to explain in words, but Angela relies purely on Meg's need for her in order to survive, and can live through almost anything just to protect her.

But what else would you expect from Seven Seas' `Strawberry' line? Throughout the manga, there is a lot of subtext between the two female leads, from breast-grabbing to almost-declarations-of-love. The art is very pretty, and quite reminiscent of Iono the fanatics, though the mangaka is not the same. The action scenes are well-drawn and there is quite a lot of gore - hence the 16+ rating.

Kind of like `Venus Versus Virus', this manga has action scenes where the two main leads fight demons and the like to save the world. Through it's own efforts, however, it is really cool and interesting to read, at the very least.

So far it is a good manga, and it is something I would easily recommend to fans of the magical girl/yuri/action genre. FYI; Tetragrammaton is Hebrew for `God', so to make it easier, you should probably call it `God's Labyrinth'!

Very interesting read. An different side to religion with the dealings of demons and spirits.
interesting characters with hidden background that has yet the needs to be explained in future volumes. It grasps an exciting feeling with the cults.

A Beautiful Girl with a Huge Scythe: (Bloody) Action-Paced Comic 22 Mar. 2011
By Tsuyoshi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Tetragrammaton Labyrinth" is an occult action comic by Ei Itou, about a gun-toting nun Margaret Cross fighting evil with her partner Angela, a beautiful young girl with a big scythe. The comic's original Japanese title is "Danzaisha Tetragrammaton Labyrinth" - "danzaisha" meaning "those who punish (or condemn) sin" - but the comic focuses on bloody actions, and any religious references serve only as background to explain the history of two heroines.

Set in the alternate London, perhaps before Industrial Revolution, the manga follows the blood-soaked battles of two heroines Margaret (also knows as Sister Meg) and Angela, fighting the demons that terrorize the dark streets of the city. Not much is explained in this volume about them, except that one's fate is mysteriously linked to the other's, and no matter what happens to her body, Angela cannot die. She takes that as a curse, but of what nature is yet to be revealed.

Artwork by Ito is fine, especially two beautiful heroines, but as one of the previous reviewers said, the comic is not for everyone, including some decapitations and severed limbs. Violence is discreetly presented and stylized, but it is definitely there, like Tim Burton's rendition of "Sleepy Hollow." My complaint has more to do with the rather predictable story of each episode, and lack of descriptions of two girls' daily activities when not engaged in battles. All battle and little character development may be good to grab the reader's attention quickly, but it soon becomes boring, getting repetitious.

"Tetragrammaton Labyrinth" (complete in six volumes) was serialized in "Comic Gum" published by Wani Books 2005 through 2007. The magazine is famous for long-running series "Battle Vixens," but don't expect any fan services here (at least in this volume). Though one of the heroines may be seen dressed in goth-loli costumes, what she does is pretty violent.

Not exactly my cup of tea, but the comic is worth reading for its interesting heroines.
Good but not great... 5 Feb. 2012

It's a fairly interesting story, and these girls know how to do some serious fighting. It wasn't really what I expected, and it was somewhat entertaining but could use some more plot development. The story is somewhat predictable and not very deep, but I did enjoy the fighting/battle scenes. Because of the violent nature of the book, it would not be recommended for everyone. But if you're interested in women fighting demons with some religious settings/contexts thrown in, and the violence/blood doesn't bother you, then definitely check it out.

Not bad, but not great either 15 April 2009
By Lumiere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The story involves a nun and a supernatural being fighting demons, which reminds me a lot of Chrno Crusade. While the art is very good, the style isn't what I prefer. The story isn't very deep, but it's still above average. There are also some very graphic scenes of violence and features slight female romance (it is considered a yuri title, but after reading the first three volumes, it's not really more than an implied possibility), so it is probably not suited for most children. The size of the manga is also not standard, so it is about half an inch wider and longer than most of my other mangas, in case anyone has OCD about volume sizes. This title is definitely not for everyone, but could be worth checking out.

One look says it all 12 Aug. 2007
By Brandy Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok so the girl on the front cover tells you what? She kills and knows how to fight. I don't want to spoile anything and no matter how innocent that girl looks on the cover you will change your mind after you read a few pages. She didn't just happen to have that Sycthe and get covered in blood no, read it and your out look on Churches will never be the same.
