One of the most deep and well thought of stories I have ever read. It definitely touches on many emotional, and ethical aspects of war. The story is very long, but well thought out. There are no episodic chapters that have nothing to do with the main plot. It's all there as you see it. It can get confusing at times. I found myself lost at the last volume. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the weird comedy or lighter tone worked in to a lot of the final volume. Considering what was occurring, the tone was constantly fluctuating and it lost some of its momentum.
The story synopsis by Viz is terrible by the way. The story is a tragedy; Viz makes you feel like it's another happy-go-lucky high school romance story with a superhero girlfriend.
a tiny bit more confusing than his other series, but it is the longest, so that's expected. great story, excellent art, and just really makes you feel, a great heartfelt story
a MUST-read manga!!!
Intelligent story, touching romance, thought-provoking views on war, good art... An incredibly sad, but great, great read.
the anime was cool, gotta check out the manga! \o/
Intense drama in a surreal story with unique sketchy art.
