An exemplary story

What I really like about this one is the story's themes, concerning insightful topics such as the horrors of war, the barrier between ethnic groups and the initial cause of war itself. They are well-woven out and both sides of the war are reflected; the characters themselves are the very medium of this aim and the plot itself is thoroughly thought-out and commendable in terms of suspense. The ending gives a solid reaffirmation of the author's message on the roots of war and to forget would lead to the desecration of peace. An excellent work of art.

Cyborgs, mutants, people with special abilities, world war 2 guns and ships, and a very idealistic pretty circus boy protecting a pretty girl with a seemingly magic map on her back. Also a few amusing and interesting companions. It's got everything I love. It was exciting, well drawn, the plot was interesting, and the characters were a lot of fun. It was building, building, building in excitement...! And then it ended, and while the ending worked and was satisfactory enough (even a little bit cool) you get the feeling the author had more planned and probably had to end it quickly for one reason or another. I kind of wanted more, a few loose ends hung here and there, but I'm glad it got as far as it did and didn't just leave off on an eternal cliffhanger like most of the manga I read seem to do...

Overall a fun read, definitely worth a look if you like some good old fashioned action sci-fi with good art. I also like how although it was set in world war 2, there wasn't too much bashing of either side (well, they recognized that neither side was completely innocent), and it looked into the more complex issues of race and war and prejudice and the kind of love and friendship that transcends those things--without getting too political (which I would have found annoying).

it says that the ending was rushed and if it was,its the best part of the series and the one that delivers the best effect while the parts leading to it were very bland,standard shounen stereotypes.

I agree. This title starts off with a real bang..true, its a little dramatic, but it's packed with action. And kudos to entropy for doing such a good job with it!
