Ratings & Reviews
The best way to experience the beginning of the series.
by Anthony -
This is a really nice release of the first two volumes of the series in one. The quality of the book is very nice and I did not notice any errors on my first read. It is what you would expect from a nice Viz volume.
My only complaint is that it is hard to read the larger lettering on the front of the book as it is pretty much invisible unless you have light reflecting off of it. The cover art is really good though.
One of the best!
This is, without a question, one of the best manga's I have ever read. The writing is GREAT, the art work is well done and clean, the story is compelling as a sci fi and as an emotional character focused work. If you are into smart discussion of death cults, conspiracies, taste of life, and discussions on aging, friendship this is for you. If I could id give this, and vol. 2 six stars!
