May your soul rest in peace, and may Guin Saga live for eternity.

I haven't read a single bit of it, but I will.

For a fellow writer, and your massive amount of dedication, basically exuding it, I will read it the first chance I get.

Guin Saga is such a beautiful and mysterious world filled with lore. Thank you Kurimoto, Kaoru for the world that you showed us. The story that you told will be a memory that I cease to forget.
