I thought I’d like this manga, it’s by an ex-CLAMP member, has pretty artwork and the plot sounded, well sound. But I didn’t.
The artwork was nice; the fold outs at the front were a nice touch. It was very much early CLAMP style and reminded me of RG-VEDA which may have got my hopes up.
The plot however really ruined it for me; everything else was there but the plot wasn’t. The story was disjointed, jumbled and overall badly told. Several times even after looking back through pages I would still be saying ‘huh’.
The most annoying thing was that it had the potential to be really good, but it was just told in a confusing and disjointed manner.
All in all I’m not even sure what to make of it. I guess it was a nice little read but could have been so much better, with hardly conceived characters that didn’t grow. To put it simply it was pretty but a big let down.
