Cynthia the mission is another one of those "missed potential" series, the characters were very well done and each had their own quirks and background. However there were several characters that felt thrown into the story for the sheer hell of it or served no purpose through most of the series. I say it missed its potential, because the plot was very weak throughout most of the series and alot of the characters were overused or underused.
Another thing I didn't like is alot of circumstances occur that make almost no sense for happening or just flat out make you say "WHY!?", an example being
that the entire 6 volume is nothing but flashbacks... in the middle of an important arc.
However I did appreciate the ending, justice was served and while it wasn't completely satisfying, it was still pretty satisfying. Overall it was interesting and the action was prevalent, so I give it a 7.
Supposedly there's going to be a part 2, but seeing as it's 6 years later, it would seem the idea has been dropped. Unfortunate, a second part could have made up for the first's shortcomings.
What did you think of this review?
