--This review is for the included one-shot: "Ginrou no Sakura"--

The whole village is busy hunting it down and kill it for a reward. One of them is Sakura, her brother is ill so she needs the money. So what will happen when the wolf and Sakura meet?
The story is really amazing. It's very original and exciting to read. It's not a typical shoujo manga. While reading you want to kow more. Until the end of the story you don't know if it's a tragic or a happy ending. I give the story a 10, 'cause it's a really nice story.
The art is nice. It doesn't disturb at all. I wouldn't call it an original artstyle, because in my opinion it isn't. But I guess it's okay, so I will give it a 7.
Then there are the characters. There is the girl. I guess I hated her for a second but a few pages later I really liked her. It's not like there are many developments, because it's only a one shot. So it's hard for me to score this one. I think they both didn't have that much of a strong personality but they were likeable. They were so-so. I will give the characters a 7.
Because of the outstanding story, the enjoyment for me was very high. There were times that I didn't like happenenings. But at the end I was fully satisfied, and everything I didn't like of the one shot disappeared. So I give enjoyment a 9.
Overall it was pleasant to read, while reading I got more curious about the end. How would it end? Is it possible to have a happy ending? For a one shot I thought it was really good, so I give it overall a 9. read more
