Although the story of "Steal Moon" is an original one, I really wish it could have been pulled off with more ease.
When I first found the manga, the thoughts going through my head were, "Oh, neat, street fights, peep rooms, drama..." Well, no one even mentioned the sci-fi aspect of the manga. In fact, the story revolves around something completely and totally different than what the synopsis leads you to believe! Therefore, if you think the synopsis is interesting and you might want to check it out, remember that this series is focused around sci-fi and can be a little high-tech at times.
is fine, and most of the characters are easy to distinguish from one another. I did have issues with Kai and Coyote, though. They're practically twins, and when they talk alone it gets confusing.
There's not much to say about the characters. I almost makes me think that the author(ess?) put ore focus into the story line than the characters. There's also a lot of characters, but luckily enough names and faces are easy to remember.
Overall, I'm not too sure whether I actually enjoyed this series as a whole. The romance was kind of cheesy, and there wasn't much of it. I wish the person who wrote the story put more effort into it, because then at least it'd be more enjoyable. My final impression is that I'll remember this story for its complicated plot under a shallow surface.
