    5 Words: Steampunk, werewolves, vampires, mummies, betrayal. I loved meeting Sidheag! Something that always bugs me a little about the wider universe is Sigheag and Lefoux apparently not recognising each other - in my head I imagine that they're trying to keep the finishing school a secret. 5 Words: Steampunk, werewolves, vampires, mummies, betrayal.

    I'm not a big fan of manga, but I am a big fan of The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger, so I just couldn't pass up an opportunity to read the manga version of Changeless (which in this case is simply called Soulless, volume 2). The manga editions of Soulless and Changeless are cute and entertaining, and it's fun to see the depictions of Lord Maccon, Ivy Hisselpenny, Lord Akeldama, and the rest of the cast of characters.

    I'm loving this manga adaptation of Gail Carriger's "Parasol Protectorate" series. Both the storytelling and the art are outstanding. It's amazing how well the artist depicts these characters. In the first volume, I especially liked Alexia, Lord Conall Maccon, Alkedama, and Professor Lyall. In the second, it was a pleasure to meet Madame Lefoux and Sidheag, both portrayed just perfectly. Now I'm ready for Volume 3, which it seems is the last one, leaving Books 4 and 5 unadapted. I'm loving this manga adaptation of Gail Carriger's "Parasol Protectorate" series.

    I am loving this series!! Volume 2 focuses more on Lady Maccon and her role as the Queen's Muhjah. She takes a trip to Scotland, to where her handsome husband Lord Maccon has gone on a business trip involving his werewolf pack. Here, we meet his extended family including his great x6 grandaughter, Lady Kingair. The plot is a little more complex this time and involves a spy who is actually very close to Lady Maccon. We also meet Madame Lefoux who is an androgynous character and I must say very ea I am loving this series!! Volume 2 focuses more on Lady Maccon and her role as the Queen's Muhjah.

I'm also starting to fall for Professor Lyall, Lord Maccon's beta - he's soo dreamy *swoons* Elsewhere, Lady Maccon's best friend, Ivy Hisselpenny and Maccon's Valet, Tunstell have eloped after finally admitting their feelings for each other, and the riddle as to why the werewolves could not become supernatural is solved. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable read and...oh yes, I forgot to mention the ending. The ending...well, it knocked me for six! Talk about a real cliffhanger. Looks like I'll be diving headfirst into volume 3 very soon indeed!

    Another great manga. I love revisiting one of my favorite series and being about to see faces to the characters. 2 down and 1 to go. It really is to bad they didn't finish the series though. It would have been great to see all the book done as a graphic novel adaption. Another great manga.

    I adore the first volume in the manga adaptations of The Parasol Protectorate. True, the plot had to be condensed, some developments had to be forgone, and Alexia's personality didn't translate perfectly into the format, but they did a fairly good job at adapting it and the art was absolutely gorgeous. The second volume had the same problems but they were a lot clearer here: they tried to simplify the story far too much and it came off as convoluted and slightly erratic, they reduced Alexia and I adore the first volume in the manga adaptations of The Parasol Protectorate.

The second volume had the same problems but they were a lot clearer here: they tried to simplify the story far too much and it came off as convoluted and slightly erratic, they reduced Alexia and Conall's interactions to the bare minimum and the chemistry, which is one of the most appealing aspects of the novel, was almost entirely lost, and the art was changed from the first volume and was inconsistent throughout the volume, sometimes even ugly. Some panels even looked like early drafts or half done, and they has none of the attention to detail, meticulous care and beauty that has made me read the first volume about 5 times. I liked that the volume implemented or made clearer developments that will be important in future installments that may have not been there or not seemed important when this novel was written, but someone who is not familiar with the novel will probably be confused by the story in this one, so I would recommend being familiar with the novel first. I would've given it 4 stars anyway if the art had been the same as its predecessor, since this is a manga adaptation of a novel and the point of such an adaptation is the art and seeing the characters you love come to life in a way, but the art in this one was subpar, not only in comparison to the first volume but in general.

    As always, Gail Carriger delivers a whopping good story. This is actually "Changeless," the second book in her Parasol Protectorate series. In this book, Alexia and Conall Maccon have traveled to Scotland to investigate what has suddenly caused supernaturals to remain human and lose their abilities. During their adventures, they meet the inimitable Madam Lefoux - a French inventor with an eye for the ladies who isn't all she seems.

When they arrive in Scotland, Connal is forced to confront his old pack which betrayed him while Alexia searches for the supernatural weapon. An encounter with a spy leads Alexia to an exciting revelation, which isn't as warmly received as she would hope! This is a terrific manga-zation of "Changeless." The story is kept intact and Rem's artwork is beautiful. I cannot wait to read Vol. 3!

    I read this in a few hours the day after I finally picked it up from the library hold shelf. Although I loved the actual Parasol Protectorate book series, the manga almost makes it just a little bit more awesome. For those who haven't read the books, this is book two in the series, called "Changeless". It's weird because this wasn't my favorite book, but the manga was better. I especially liked Madame Lefoux and Ivy, although I think they both looked a bit different than how I imagined them.

    Many of the Urban Fantasy Graphic Novel interpretations I have read of late have been rubbish! They have offered none of the substance and depth that the original novels held. Thankfully, these manga works have such heart and whimsy - exactly capturing the tone of why we all love the Parasol Protectorate series. A great and fun read!

    Soulless The manga, Volume 2, takes on book two of the Parasol protectorate series. Though not a terrible adaptation, this really does condense the book down to its barest essence - eschewing a lot of the wit and personality in the process.

Though not a terrible adaptation, this really does condense the book down to its barest essence - eschewing a lot of the wit and personality in the process. Characters are overwrought and poorly translated from the book. And plot points were clunkily conveyed, making the story hard to follow. Alexia and Connall are enjoying marital bliss when they are confronted with a very serious problem concerning the supernaturals: their curses are broken and they are back to being human. No one seems to know why but a clue may lie with Connal's former wolf pack. Alexia and Connall will have to travel to Scotland to try to solve the riddle. Along the way, expect Carrigers wonder cast of characters to grow. I came into this graphic novel with the perspective of having read book 1 of the novel but not this book two or a graphic novel adaptation. As well, I've very familiar with manga and manga conventions, so following this should have been no problem. However, this is one of those times that I feel the source book really shouldn't have been adapted into a graphic format, especially not manga. The characters all lost two decades, half their IQ, and are far too pretty. It took away a lot of the gravitas, as well as the prim and proper tongue in cheek tone that Carriger sets so well. Victorian era manga can be done well - e.g., Emma by Kaoru Mori. But it just wasn't here. Despite having read the first book, I had a very hard time following what was going on in this book. People are introduced or talked about without being named, characters appear and disappear with little introduction, and actions are very glossed over. I think I may have missed quite a few of the plot points as a result. In addition to the issues above, it did seem a shame to have all of Carriger's meticulous manners and historically accurate point completely jettisoned. Clothing, attitudes, even locales didn't match late Victorian at all. In some places it was really jarring - sort of like reading a book about the 1970s disco movement and everyone is wearing bobby socks and poodle skirts in one scene, leisure suits in the next. I really suspect something happened in the communication between the adapter and the illustrator. Sometimes I felt like something very different was being illustrated than what was being described. As well, the overreactions, wild gesticulations, and overly sexed up scenes (far too many breasts showing) just didn't feel right at all. It was almost like a joke or caricature of the source material. I think I'll go read the second novel and leave "Soulless - light" to those who liked it better.

    Jessica (a GREAT read)

    Gail Carriger and Rem's second installment, Soulless: The Manga Vol 2 was just as delightful as the first! Based off of Changeless, the second novel in the Parasol Protectorate series, Alexia is getting used to married life, but being married to an alpha werewolf is not all that easy. Especially when problems with the werewolves start to occur and they are unable to shift. It'll be up to Alexia to try to figure out what has happened.

Especially when problems with the werewolves start to occur and they are unable to shift. It'll be up to Alexia to try to figure out what has happened. Another delightful tale shortened into a graphic novel! This one was just as enjoyable as the first! I love seeing the characters. Especially Ivy, she really takes a shine on me in this one since she gets more page time. Her hats are pretty wild as Gail had previously described, but for a few of them I always thought they'd be more outrageous, but they were by far from tamed! And her dilemma of a love life is pretty comical when it can be seen manga-nized! The expressions the characters have are too funny! Professor Lyall is also surprising, and yet not I guess. His character is drawn almost remorsefully, but from my memory of his written character he was kind of a mellow guy being Conall's Beta and all. Seeing Madame Lefoux was to die for as well. For some reason I struggled imagining her in the books, but seeing her on the graphic novel page and I knew that this was Madame Lefoux! She stayed true to her character and I just enjoyed actually seeing it! Once again, I enjoyed the expressions these manga characters made. They were just so right for the character and the timing of whatever situation. The storytelling was as wonderful as before. My lack of memory made the reading nice because in some areas it was if I was reading it for the first time! Although at certain points my memory did come back and was ahead of itself! The romantic moments were a little few and far between in this one. Conall and Alexia weren't together for long on the pages. And then came the ending! Luckily I've read the book series or else I would be in the horrible state of cliffhanger pains like I was when I read the book Changeless! But still, it will be an awfully long wait til November for Volume 3 on the manga books. I recommend these graphic novels for anyone who has read the Parasol Protectorate novels because they are highly enjoyable. And as I've said, very fun reads since we get to see the characters and storytelling. Plus they are rather quick reads too! Overall Rating 5/5 stars

Soulless 2 of the manga series is the second of the Parasol Protectorate series written by Gail Carriger converted into manga by REM; the original novel is Changeless. Just in case you missed my review of the original novel, it’s here. Soulless 2 begins after Alexia Tarabotti and Conall Maccon are married. Alexia has had the opportunity to settle into her position as Muhjah for Queen Victoria (read Soulless 1 for an explanation of Muhjah, it’s complicated). Vampires and werewolves experience humanisation in a geographic location, worrying everyone enormously. Maccon is called in to investigate. Alexia is accused of being the source of the humanisation problem. Politics abound. Maccon rushes to Scotland to investigate his former werewolf pack, which is in disarray after losing its Alpha. Alexia follows him via dirigible, with a few attempts on her life on the journey. Alexia’s sister and Ivy Hisselpenny, lover of outrageous hats, wangle invites to join Alexia as well, causing mayhem and comedy throughout. Madame Lefoux, the inventor from Soulless, joins Alexia on her journey to Scotland, bringing a new level of naughtiness to the plot and storyline. The dirigible journey provides ample opportunity to showcase ‘floating’ fashions along the way: modesty requires skirts to be bound around one’s legs, hats must be tied on and goggles become a necessity. Although well described in the books, I loved the artwork that emphasised the alienness of dirigible travel to modern sensibilities. Ivy’s predilection for atrocious hats also comes into the fore with the artwork. While Soulless can be read as a stand alone story, Soulless 2 needs to be read as the sequel to Soulless 1 and also has a cliff-hanger ending. I love the original version but the manga version is an essential addition, enhancing the Parasol Protectorate experience with its visualisations of characters, fashions and particular exchanges. Highly recommended.

And yet the adapter took the very same scene and made it work perfectly. I also adore her portrait of the lesbian inventor, Madame Lefoux as a gamine Leslie Caron type, and I love that the heroine has a little bit of trouble resisting her. At first I was worried that an OEL manga series would shy from the portrayals of various sexual and gender identities in the book, because, you know, the US and "protect the children from anything different". But the adapter jumped in and went for it. I think the last volume comes out in November. I can't wait. And I hope they decided to adapt the last two.

The illustrations convey the characters' personalities really well, as well as the 'missing links' between what the characters are saying which you inevitably somewhat miss with less text. The characters are fun to read and the plot is fast-moving but doesn't feel overly rushed. I still have no plans to read the book versions of the stories in the near future, but am happy to follow them through the manga, and hope they will finish the series!

    I have decided that the preternatural is a reverse ditto. Instead of turning into other things, preternaturals make everything else like them (human). This volume sees all the vampires and werewolves losing their vampire- and wolfy-ness. It's up to Alexia, the new Muhjah, to find out why. While someone's trying to kill her. And her lesbian/inventer new-best-friend. And she's not feeling great to boot.

    This 2nd book in the graphic novel series represents "Changeless." I really, really liked the art in this one! Madame LeFoux was much, much sexier than I imagined in the novel, but oh well -- it was pretty much an awesome read! The back cover is a bit racy (well, so is Alexia), and I felt like I had to hide the pages every once in a while on the airplane, but I can be a prude.

    Second volume in the series and follows the second book in the Parasol Protectorate. Once again, I really enjoyed this. The art is simply lovely and although I don't believe I finished Changeless for some reason, I found the manga to be easy to follow and did a wonderful job of getting the story through. Now I can't wait for the third volume. And it also has me wanting to read the books again. I was iffy on the first book and set down the second halfway through, but now I want to go back and read Second volume in the series and follows the second book in the Parasol Protectorate. Once again, I really enjoyed this.

    So, I just discovered that this manga is based on a popular book series (one I had never heard of). That would explain why the storyline in Souless 2 was such a hot mess. It was rushed, it didn't make sense at times, and it felt like entire details were missing. Now I know why - it's an adaptation. I enjoyed the first book in this manga series, but this one was awful. I think for me to enjoy it I would have to read the actual books the manga is based on.

The Souless manga doesn't work as a stand-alone piece, therefore it gets low marks.

    Thanks the aether the artist conceded Alexia a bit of modesty! the gowns are a pleasure to look at, as weel as the art in general. It's great to have a visual rapresentation of all the steampunk contraptions. Again, we're left with unanswered questions (who attempted to Alexia's life, and who and why took her notebook?) and we're treated to some omissions (how could Genevieve leave her shop and child unattended?) and puzzling behaviour (isn't it obvious how the pregnancy could happen?), but all i Thanks the aether the artist conceded Alexia a bit of modesty! the gowns are a pleasure to look at, as weel as the art in general.
