I own this series and it's pretty good. You won't see much in the way of intimate scenes for the most part and it slowly builds the plot which is pretty big. Loved the artwork. The storyline has some religious aspects to it and some really interesting and unexpected twists. Pretty solid story to have if you are tired of fluff stories.

As a veteran manga consumer, I found "La Esperanca" to be a little confusing to read. Re-reading areas was a must at times, and after reading it through, I still am left wondering about some of the scenes. Strong soap-opera feel, with the main characters "Georges" in a passive and pining haze, and "Robert" (resident angst filled bad boy) bitter and so harsh that I could not connect at all to the character. No tension between the characters (think of "Only The Ring Finger Knows" as an example of delicious tension development). Background/secondary characters are also a bit confusing, and poorly introduced at times...often I was left to try to figure out who characters were and why they had such a chip on their shoulder...perhaps this was a weakness caused by the translation into english, which may be a bit wobbly. Would I read further into the series? If I knew someone that owned a copy, or found it at a library-there are too many fantastic manga out there to invest in instead.

Georges Saphir is an excellent student and well-liked by everyone at his school. However, his fear of intimacy with others keeps him from forging any truly close bonds. Suddenly, he encounters a new student named Robert, a misfit who seems to be both repelled and fascinated by Georges. Robert's insightful yet incisive words force Georges to realize things about him self and they are somehow drawn towards each other. But a dangerous incident in a ancient, crumbling cathedral involving the son of the Grand Duke Argent could prove to be a turning point, and Georges and Robert are drawn ever closer. However, an upperclassman who seems to share a tragic past with Robert warns Georges of the danger that Robert poses, revealing that Georges is the perfect image of the girl whom Robert once loved and whose death he may have caused.
