Gestalt (manga)

Gestalt (manga)

is an 8-volume manga series by Yun Kouga and published by Square Enix and later by Ichijinsha, that later spawned a two episode OVA series. Like her earlier manga, Earthian, it is said to contain some minor same-gendered relations, however, these parts did not make it into the OVA. The plot resembles that of a role-playing game such as Dragon Quest (not surprising, since Enix has had some part in the OVA's production), and is more humorous than serious.


The story circulates around a mysterious and dangerous island referred to simply as "G". A long time ago, a powerful god named Gestalt was banished to the earth and he had found refuge in the island known as G. To utter the name for which it stands is forbidden, for people were so afraid of the wrath of the god that they considered his name a curse. Father Olivier is a priest who has left his order and traveled to the island of G in order to discover the truth behind it. He ends up making the acquaintance of a young girl named Ohri, who turns out to be quite adept in magic.

Meanwhile, the head of the order has hired a dark elf, Suzu, to track down Olivier and bring him back. Suzu finds him easily enough. However, she hadn't anticipated the powerful sorceress in his company, Ohri. The girl disposes of Suzu for the moment, and she and the Father continue on. As if things weren't rough enough, the island of G has its share of monsters and magic-users to get in the way of their travels.
