(Caution: Spoiler hints)
Listen if you're here for the plot and are expecting something 'deep' out of this, you don't really have to bother yourself. But if you just wanna have fun, chuckle and look at good art at a comfortable pace, then this might be for you. I loved the series. The art was great, the characters were likeable, the subtle humor was just right up my alley, and the overall vibe felt very unique.
However, at the end of chapter 70, I find myself riddled with questions. Not necessarily a good thing I would say- it was more of a "Wait, what the f*** just
happened?" kind of thing. Was it all a dream? A dream within a dream? Time travel? Parallel world? I don't know what was real anymore lol, and since there wasn't much discussion about this series I gave up trying to decipher the meaning behind the conclusion. The right word would be 'scammed'- yes, I felt scammed. But damn it was one hell of a nice scam going on. I did enjoyed it.
Sadly though I'm only gonna have to give it a 5, no more and no less. This however made me wanna check out Otsuka Eiji's other works, and I can't wait to start on another one. But like I said, don't expect anything complicated out of this series and take everything with a pinch of salt. Enjoy!
