OMG! This series has hit a level in which it deserves the Yuki Kaori Parrot of DOOM icon!

I quote:

Cesare: (as Volpe attempts to lick the blood off his chest wound) You'll die. My blood is poisonous. [...]
Volpe: If that is so, then I have already been violated by the poison that is you. The sweet poison that is you. My life and my death belong to you!

AWESOME.

Um... I think I might be a Lucrezia/Chiaro shipper. But they are so cute! And totally bond over their mutual love of Cesare!

Also, Moth Man has now been revealed to be Niccolo Machiavelli! I mean, I knew this because Mely told me, but it still did not stop me from cackling insanely! Because it is Machivelli the Moth Man!

We have just had Sancia sleeping with Cesare and his brother Juan in an attempt to make Cesare jealous; Lucrezia hiding out in a nunnery; Chiaro blamed for various murders because even though he is an assassin he is still one of the purest people in the series!; Lucrezia protecting Chiaro and falling in love with him despite her burning, forbidden passion for her brother; Cesare slowly turning into a demon because only Chiaro can hold his demonic side back!; Cesare GROWING CRYSTAL WINGS OF EVIL!; Cesare killing his own brother and moping in despair; and did I mention the CRYSTAL WINGS OF EVIL?!

Bwahahaha! I laughed so hard when he had to break them off himself! So awesome! I love this series so much!

Oh! And Chiaro and Volpe fight over Cesare's soul in a way! Chiaro tries to kill Cesare so Cesare can die a man and not a demon! But he cannot strike! And then Cesare grows his crystal wings of evil!

I now want to see what happens with Alfonso, given that he and Lucrezia are going to get married (is that a spoiler if it's history?).

OMG. It took a while for me to warm to this series, but now it is pure awesome!

Now I am pissed off at myself for accidentally returning vols. 7 and 8 to the library before reading them. Nooooo! Must have more Borgia crack now now now!

You know, I kinda want to read this book, but...it scares me. This post is half "oooo....must have" and half "SCARY! RUN!"

Wahhh! I like Chiaro/Lucrezia too, I think. Is Chiaro based on a real dude?

Oooh, oooh! If we trust Wikipedia, I found this: "Don Michelotto (Chiaro) is based on the literary figure Miguel, who is mentioned as Cesare Borgia's right-hand man in several plays." There's another connection that some people think he had to the Borgias.....but it might be a spoiler!

Also, someone translates You Higuri's Japanese blog on to LiveJournal: [livejournal.com profile] youhiguri
