Hi, I have read it's prequel and I liked it very much, so I was thinking about checking out the sequel but I don't know how is it. Is it worth it to buy the tolyopop releases. Mind you where I am there are very few stores where I can find manga and only the really popular ones so I have to buy from the internet - which can be costly. So anyone who read the series can tell me if it's worth it in comparison the prequel.

I think it's better than the prequel. It probably leans more towards drama and mystery rather than comedy. Yet I didn't finish the prequel so I can only compare with the parts I read. In my opinion, setting this in Japan makes it better. The art is better too compared with the prequel.

I read the entirety of the prequel and I think this one is just as good. If u liked the detective, so far they have included references to him, but he's not a main character... but they hint he'll pop in later, in my opinion. The stories are just as interesting, but I don't think its any more mysterious than the first one. The first one gets pretty mysterious farther in.

I personally prefer the Japan setting to America. The detective doesn't show up (at least so far) or almost doesn't show up (as I don't rememer seeing him). I read 6 volumes of it.

I read both the prequel and the sequel and prefer the first part of the serie. The stories aren't so cool in this continuation, they're less elaborated.
