As a fan of Tamura Yumi, i checked it out in hopes of another epic story like 7Seeds or Basara.
As this work seems to be unfinished or abandoned, i write this for the potential it had.
Story: the setting is a slightly fururistic tokyo, and our main heroes belong to a special forces team to help save civillians and take on special missions. Its quite an unusual setting for josei, but all the better for it, i think the category needs so much more diverse content than just romance . The story stars with action and is really promising, it would have been great so
see more about the 3 main characters and their respective backgrounds.
Art: I have to say the style is typical for the author , and i came to love it, even though it is more shoujo-feathery and somewhat fuzzy. Usually i like more clean lines and less saucer-eyes. but it really does not deter from the story, rather i find it is interesting to see a story which has the action, suspense, romance, drama, mystery some seinen or shounen have drawn in this style. its not for everyone though, so i guess for some people this subtracts points from the overall score.
Characters: as is typical for Tamura, the main characters are laid out very balanced and come with qualities and faults alike. A think i can never emphasize enough! As only a small amount of chapters have been released, i am sure had it been continued the characters would be really well fleshed out and relatable as seen in previous works by her. I really like that she always has a very strong female lead. this is so important as in the classic shojo/josei there are not many of them.
Enjoyment: it was really great to read and i was bummed out that there was not more. the basis for the story is really good and i would have love to see where it wend from there.
Overall: I would recommend to read not only for Tamura fans but also for fans of the Josei genre. Its rare to see action, suspense, mystery, drama, romance, all packed into one. i really really wish there were more great stories with a broader set of elements than just plain romance in josei. Even though the art is not for everyone, the story show a ton of potential and, one can only hope it gets redone or continued some day.
