It should stay as quiet as marble."
There will be spoilers below!
I stopped rereading Trinity Blood after the Empire arc ended because what comes next is the Lady Saint arc and my emotions couldn't handle rereading it at the time.
Esther and company return to Istvan, where she discovers that she's the subject of an opera written by Bishop D'Annunzio and produced by the Propaganda Fide. The opera was created in honor of one-year anniversary of Star of Sorrows and commemorate the slaying of Gyula Ka'Dar from the first volume. When Esther delivers a speech at the opera house, she's kidnapped by a Methuselah woman, who calls her a mass murderer.
Now the summaries of this manga never really do it justice and can be pretty confusing. The back summary for this volume calls Schera an "unexpected friend turned foe" implying that they'd met in the Empire when I don't think Schera was even shown during that arc. She is the niece of the Duke of Tigris, and had to flee from the Empire once she was implicated in his plot to usurp the throne.
Even though this is a hard one to read simply because I know how it ends, it's probably my favorite arc. A lot of people never really got into this manga because it has less of the action advertised, and more political intrigue, and this arc's plot exemplifies this. But I love all the scheming and the Propaganda Fide and especially love Schera, who's probably my favorite character in this series.
I definitely do have a few issues with this volume, though, mostly with how easily D'Annunzio is getting away with shit.
One of the things that gets me is that Bishop D'Annunzio is obviously suspicious. He dropped the ball at the opera when his police force was supposed to be protecting Esther, but everyone just moves on from that. I imagine that there would be an investigation into what happened, but there's never mention of it again. Yet no one stops to consider his motives? That maybe he's up to something?
And the timeline is also confusing in regards to Bishop D'Annunzio's plot. So the Propagande Fide announces to the media that Esther has been rescued and is recovering at the hospital, meaning the public assumes she's safe. But when the police catch Esther, who is still in custody of the Methuselah, they say they plan to martyr her so that they can begin a holy crusade against the vampires. D'Annunzio continues to talk about this, but how would that work out if everyone believes Esther has already been retrieved. The Vatican would have to admit that they lied in order for his plan to work, and I doubt that that's going to happen.
I guess it's a little detail, and the Vatican would likely be backed into a corner, but the fact that it's not explained just how D'Annunzio is going to work this out makes it feel like a plot hole.
Anyway, the best part of this volume was Schera and her friendship with Esther. The fact that Esther is the first person to give her a nickname is the cutest thing. Schera is probably the most caring and sweet character in this whole series, to the point that she'd go out of her way to help Esther when she could have just killed her in order to save her family.
Oh, and I also really liked how Esther said that Gyula was not evil, and that the battle they fought wasn't honorable, and no one was thinking about greater good. It just shows how much she's grown, when she despised him and all Methuselah in the first volume. And her speech in chapter 36 is the best in this series.
There's so much more I could say about this volume, and how it has some awesome commentary on propaganda and the manipulation of the public, and how we should always question our leaders, but I really want to read the next volume because I haven't in so many years.
