With his mother taken away from him and having lost everything, Lag Seeing is now a letter whose delivery has been assigned to Gauche Suede, a Letter Bee. Despite their troubling start, the two of them become friends, leading Lag to realize what his aim in life is: to deliver people's most important feelings in the form of letters, just as Gauche has done.

To be honest, I didn't think I would enjoy Tegami Bachi after I read the plot summary. A government employee delivers letters and fights monster bugs. Great. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.

Story: 9/10
Although Tegami Bachi may seem extraordinarily childish at first, the subtle, dark undertones are what make it very appealing.

Amberground, the setting of the story, is divided into three sections based on social class: Yodaka, Yuusari and Akatsuki.

Wow what a favorite of mine. Tegami Bachi for me, is one of my kind of secret favorites, or rather prized possessions that really hasn't been seen by that many people, unfortunately (I know not that well explained couldn't really say it in any other way).
