This review going to be real short and straight to the point. I personally was very disappointed in the ending, if your solely reading this manga for the shoujo ai and NOT action, then I recommend you not reading it at all because I big WTF is going to hit you in the face in the last chapter of the manga. Dont get me wrong, its a good manga with great action scenes and social plots and twists.(trust me this manga got alot of twists -_- the biggest twist is the last chapter) But i think they should remove shoujo ai as a genre related read more

A story with so much promise it fills me with regret every time I remember its beginning and rage when I remember its ending.

I really enjoyed about 90% of the story. The art is good; it never felt awkward or lacking; nor did it impress me though. The characters were strong and vibrant; they really sold the world they inhabited. As for enjoyment, if you can read the whole story, chances are that you will either love it or hate it. Its not the kind of story you can read without caring about one way or another.

It made my heart race with anxiety, anger, despair read more

The story of this manga is based on "Paradise Story" which is often included in the story and well-made to cover the whole events in the story.

This manga is having a slow start and will leave you different perception more you dwell with the story. It's not a simple one but full of surprise and deep thought.

The art is greatly drawn and kept like that until the end. Characters, battles, and events are drawn nicely throughout the series.

Throughout the story, I don't like how they abuse the girls in the story, making my enjoyment so low but more you know story, this story read more

Story (3): It has a somewhat good premise going on, but it reminds me to much of other mangas like Soul Eater with the girls turning into weapons and the masters being the boys. It's a girl battling against sexism and bias in a school where girls are seen as nothing as tools, sounds like some feminist ideology to be honest, and that's not why I'm giving it such a low score. I did like what the first few chapters told, but as soon as it kept going, it got confusing, dull, a chore to read through and the ending just leaves us with too read more
