I read this when I was younger and I like the "romance" between Genzo and the Hime. The ending though... still making me hated it

The mangaka choose the ambiguous ending and since all the other characters were left suffering, I think we are left to hope for happy or accept life as incomplete, depending on our own mindset.

The manga it's actually really good. The art is very nice too. But what the hell was that last chapter? It could have had at least an epilogue or something...
I don't think it was confusing. But it could have spent some more chapters to end it. I mean... It spent two whole volumes about Chiyomaru... So, spend more time about the two protagonists...

I can't give a bad rating because it was a really good series... But I can't give it a 10 either...

The first few volumes was good but I'm not convinced with the ending (Volume 5). Is there a sequel or something? Cos the ending was pretty confusing and bad.

GOD dammit this was an amazing series
i want to know how this ends man
i doubt the author left it, nor i think he's bad at ending it
i mean he did 3x3 eyes and blue seed, and he ended those well
and this one, already is nearing its end its all set up... so i think its most probably the scanlators who just left it or forgot it

i can only give this a 6 because i honestly think the series or the translation has not been completed. the "final" chapter gives no closure on anything whatsoever. all i can think is that A. the author simply stopped drawing this manga/ died or something, B. the author is horrible at creating endings, or C. the translation group missed something. it seems like it was only a 1 chapter more is left to end the series. i reiterate that i cannot believe this half a*s end is the actual ending of the series

Since the series is complete I'm curious about what happens at the end.
