Confession is really good

I stand in awe of how unbelievably Incredible "Eagle"(manga) is. The sheer material present in it with regards to national policy, arms , racism, emigrants , american dream and war etc puts it miles ahead of some of the best-written manga and books alike. I seriously wish more people could read your works
