    1. Ahhhhh! Drops of God! It’s taken the English-speaking world a long enough time to catch up to this phenomenon. What’s Drops of God, you ask? It’s the megahit manga where instead of this: [image error]we have this: [image error]Yep. You got that right, folks! It’s Pokémon with wine instead of Pokémon. Which makes him: him: [image error]Mwa ha ha ha ha! <3 <3 <3

    2. I got volume 1 of this purely out of curiosity having already enjoyed reading food manga such as Oishinbo, and I also enjoy drinking wine (although I'm no expert on it). I was expecting to read volume 1, like it but probably not be particularly into the rest of the series. This is mainly because Drops of God is a very long-running series, and I felt like it would be practically impossible to follow it in its entirety.Anyway, I was surprised by how much I liked this! Its a mixture of wine talk an [...]

    3. I spent basically all of July reading this manga series, and it was glorious. Shizuku’s dad was a world-famous wine critic, so naturally Shizuku hates wine and works at a beer company. But then his dad dies, and in order to inherit his father’s estate, Shizuku has to battle against his father’s adopted son in a treasure hunt to find the “Twelve Apostles” of wine and the ultimate prize, the Drops of God. I loved the two main characters, Shizuku and Miyabi, a sommelier-in-training. I’m [...]

    4. The world’s most influential wine writers: Robert Parker Jr James Suckling, Jancis Robinson, Shin & Yuko Kibayashi Who? Kibayashi?You betcha. The Kibayashi’s are a veteran brother and sister manga writing team in Japan. Having established themselves writing thrillers and mystery comics, they hit it big writing about wine. Who would have thought? Nevertheless, starting in 2004, the Kibayashi’s, together with illustrator Shu Okimoto, began to put out a weekly manga serial about the drink [...]

    5. (This review covers Volumes 1 and 2 in the series. It's also filled with spoilers, but not ones that I think would ruin anyone's enjoyment of the books.)Caveat: I know zilch about wine and I have quite the unrefined palate. (Much to the despair of my undergrad roommate who, bless her heart, actually spent several months trying to teach me to have discerning taste. One of our actual conversations: "What's this one taste like to you?" "Ummm, grapes? Otheruit?" "You don't taste the chocolate? Or th [...]

    6. I picked this up at the library because the cover looked interesting, then I read the back: "Arguably the most influential wine publication for the past 20 years." - Decanter Magazine. And under that: "Winner: Gourmand Cookbook Awards 2009"And this is a manga? Okay then, I'm reading this one.Now I think I can say that this is definitely the most I've ever learned from reading a manga. I didn't really know anything about wine before, and so far I haven't tasted one I like, but the descriptions of [...]

    7. This is the first manga I've read. I don't care if liking this series makes me an idiot, I think some could argue that it doesn't, and I don't exactly know why I'm so in its swell that I gave it five stars, when it should have probably only gotten four, but Getting info about something you are interested in, but mostly ignorant of is intoxicating, and if it's delivered in a soap opera/50s serial medium, well then apparently the author's got something. Again as with other comics that I am just no [...]

    8. Todays manga is Drops of God, a manga I picked up on chance on the newly-opened Books a Million. The last time I bought a manga that cost me fifteen dollarswell those who have read my review of Children of the Sea know how that went. But was my money well spent on this one? Be forewarned they'll be major spoilers, mostly for the first chapter only though. We open to a very vivid description of someone trying a glass of wineI assure you it's more exciting than it sounds. Actually, I really like t [...]

    9. When Japanese comic artists, Manga-ka for those in the know, started running out of original sci-fi/fantasy adventures that had driven their industry since the 1950s, a strange trend started cropping up. Writers and artists started conceiving very ordinary sorts of stories with painstaking detail about an unusual facet of everyday life. Manga about bread making, Go players and even middle management had a lot of appeal to individuals who were in those fields, but they were also popular with laym [...]

    10. Shizuku has never tasted wine, an act of defiance against his father, world renowned wine critic Yukata Kanzaki and all of the strange things he had Shizuku do as a child "for the sake of wine." When Yakata passes away, his will reveals a challenge to be undertaken by Shizuku and a young wine critic named Issei Tomine: identify twelve wines chosen and described by Yakata, as well as the legendary "Drops of God." The one who does with inherit Yakata's extensive wine collection. Shizuku has little [...]

    11. Shizuku Kanzaki is the son of Yutaka Kanzaki, a world-famous wine critic. Ever since he was a child, Shizuku was exposed to a variety of sights, smells, sounds, and tastes, all the things he’d need in order to properly appreciate wine. Unfortunately for Yutaka Kanzaki, it backfired. The relationship between father and son became strained, and Shizuku eventually went to work for a beer company without ever once tasting a drop of wine. Shizuku has been estranged from his father for two years whe [...]

    12. The art resembles more to a comic than a manga. Shizuku, the main character, looks a lot like damn Yagami LightOnce more I am grateful to the making of dorama; otherwise I probably would not know the existence of this manga. Ever since I watched the movie "Sideways" I've been interested in wince tasting, the methods, the art itself. I myself am completely ignorant about the subject; I do not even like drinking wine. But it is fabulous to watch connoisseurs of wine enjoy the before, during and af [...]

    13. This graphic novel completely hit the spot. Charming, instructive, poetic, and with a nice little plot. A famous wine critic dies and his prodigal son is instructed to taste and identify twelve wines in order to inherit the critic's legendary, exquisitely curated collection of rare vino. If he fails, he loses everything to a mercenary infante terrible of the wine world. In this volume, the young man tries wine for the first time, and the tasting returns to him potent lost childhood memories of h [...]

    14. A fantastic take on the often seen in comics story of a man who has a natural ability that surpasses even those who have trained for years. In this case, the ability is for tasting wine though to be fair he did undergo training by his father when he was younger. That training comes into play when his father dies and stipulates as part of the will that to get an inheritance, the son must complete a series of challenges that involve tasting wine so that he might find the Drops of God and the 12 Ap [...]

    15. This graphic novel completely hit the spot. Charming, instructive, poetic, and with a nice little plot.

    16. The son of a world-famous wine critic reluctantly embraces his father's legacy. After befriending Miyabi, a sommelier in training, Yutaka Kanzaki begins to unravel a mystery written into his father's will: identifying thirteen wines, including the so-called Drops of God, in order to claim his inheritance. If you like wine, even a little bit, you'll find plenty to enjoy here, not least in Shu Okimoto's graceful and generously detailed illustrations. Kate Robinson's translation, too, is first-rate [...]

    17. I admit I was reading halfway and wanted to draw a conclusion: This book is strictly for Wine lovers.And then I carried on reading. The story managed take a turn and many more interesting and funny characters are brought into the story, like Mr. Honma. That makes the story very engaging and light to read even though it is a manga about Wine. So I am looking forward to pick up vol.2. Well done.

    18. The characterization and imagery that comes with each bottle of wine the protagonists seek out could only be pulled off with a graphic novel, and it’s done well. I know very little about wine, but the history of the vineyards and the culture was surprisingly entertaining and easy to take in.

    19. Stuff I Read – Drops of God Vol 1So following a recent fascination with wine and I guess as a result of hearing about this series from some reputable sources, I decided to take the plunge and buy the first volume of this quite substantial series. Substantial more because it weighs in at well over three hundred pages, and as far as manga goes that is quite long. But also as far as manga goes this did not dissapoint, and provided a rather lengthy but incredibly enjoyable read. Because the book, [...]

    20. The Drops of God is a manga series written by Tadashi Agi with artwork by Shu Okimoto. It’s an over-the-top, fast paced adventure following the wine pursuits of oenophiles.Shizuku Kanzaki is the son of a world-renowned wine critic, and in defiance of his father’s “hobby,” has never tasted wine. The series opens with the death of Shizuku’s father, and the introduction of a will that decrees in order to inherit his father’s two billion yen wine collection, Shizuku must find and identif [...]

    21. The gents at the Vault of Midnight said this manga was as over-the-top as normal manga stories, but about the topic of wine. A young man, Shizuku, discovers that inheritance of his father's estate is subject to an odd test. He's up against a wine connoisseur to identify 13 wines, which his father compared to Christ and the 12 apostles. Shizuku has been set against drinking wine by years of weird experiences by his father to appreciate odd flavors and tastes, without understanding why. At first, [...]

    22. Lo que llamo mi atencion este manga de el enorme estante, fue el hecho de que tenia marcas y comentarios de organizaciones que nada tienen que ver con el mundo del manga. Algo que tambien me llmo la atencion, es que habian unos numeros en la seccion de manga, y otros en la de comidas The Drops of God es un manga del tipo "Voy a ser el mejor del mundo" (si quieren un ejemplo mas popular, pokemon seria uno). Shizuku Kanzaki es el heredero de un famoso catador japones de vinos, famoso a nivel mundi [...]

    23. I was totally taken by surprise at how much I got completely addicted to this manga series despite not having a terribly strong interest in wine and a general mistrust of the ultra detailed descriptions of it that are drafted by sommeliers. I found the story really compelling in its own right and found myself really, really enjoying the larger-than-life, over-the-top characterizations of particular bottles of wine. I also feel like I learned a lot from the series about what the actual difference [...]

    24. This is supposedly one of a few manga mega-hits in Japan, this one about the world of wine and it is part educational about the best of the best French wines and makes it look like these people are obsessed with ultra expensive, rare wines, especially French and all things French a kind of wanna be book for High Culture, a sort of class envy project where two wine geniuses compete (in the first volume, anyway) and are both gorgeous and women and girls everywhere just lust afer them because they [...]

    25. Y'know, when I first heard about this title, I thought the authors must 1) just want to show off their knowledge of wine, and/or 2) want to drink all the wine possible and be able to write it off as "research." At the end of v.1, I find a little of both comes through. There is a lot of wineology in this book the way Moby Dick possesses a lot of whaleology. But even though The Drops of God mentions tons of labels and terms and facts, it minimizes the haughtiness by having one savant newbie and on [...]

    26. Japan has an interesting genre niche - FOOD MANGA. Remove the genre-specific furnishings (in this case: wine) and the series itself is the most basic shonen premise - there's The Protag (dude who hates wine due to his father training him half his life for it), there's The Rival (smug bastard, renowned wine critic) and The Prize (contents of wine cellar: a collection worth millions). There's also The Girl because of course there is; someone to stay by Protag's elbow to help him out (sommelier-in- [...]

    27. 11 May 2013The Drops of God 1 is a wine geek's wet dream. It gives extremely detailed history on mostly French vintages. You'll undoubtedly salivate with the extravagant explanations on the complex notes of each wine. Admittedly, I used to be a lot more into wine before than I am now. I found the research of the wine to be very interesting. However, I thought the visions of being transported to strawberry fields or the Salome opera was a bit ridonkulous. But, hey, if there is a wine out there th [...]
