Good story, bad translation

by

This release of this omnibus was like a dream come true; something fans like myself had been anticipating after being wowed by the anime and wanting to read the full unabridged story in English.
However this publication by Dark Horse isn't perfect, or at least, not as good as it could easily have been.

PROS-
Paper quality is nice and thick

3 volumes in one with 3 extra stories at the end which are 100 pages in length

Nothing is censored, hence the 'explicit content' sticker on the cover

CONS-
It suffers from being badly translated in some parts. For example, there's an entire scene where one character is being incorrectly addressed as the wrong person for a whole length of the page

Overall, it's bittersweet and that's only due to how careless the person who translated this was, but maybe they can fix that with a reprinting.

Awesome series that touches in great themes!

by -

I never watched the anime so I went blind into this series. The first omnibus is action packed! The story itself is great. The concept of one of the main protagonists switching personalities presents a great factor on how everything plays out. We need more of this story as the theme of the story is super good. I don’t want to spoil anything so I’m being very vague. Spines look great on the shelf too. What else do you need?

A very enjoyable read!

by -

The book itself has thick high quality paper and looks good on a shelf. I like that the book has dividers between each volume and is not just a bunch of chapters. I appreciate the bonus chapters and although they are short they are filled with an enjoyable plot. The series has a very interesting plot that will keep you wanting to read more. It leaves you with questions and forces you to decide your views on all that occurs. Overall for three enjoyable volumes it is worth purchasing.
