I loved this series so much that although I'm happy to have a resolution I'm rather sad to see it end. This was the one that started off my (very expensive) obsession with manga when I picked up my very first volume at Borders after contemplating the wonderful cover art and interesting sounding storyline for a month (further details can be found in my review of volume 1).

As a series ending I will say that I found it satisfying. Although I never really cared for the family politics plot, I enjoyed the resolution and thought that the ending twist about Amane was very interesting. I found it amusing that even the manga-ka felt her storyline was getting too serious and made efforts to lighten the mood using Takako and Aoi. I kind of would have liked to have seen those two get together, but ultimately they were only side characters without any definitive ending of their own. I did find it odd to see the changes in the way the manga-ka drew the artwork. In some cases the differences seemed very dramatic. I think you can even see it if you compare the cover art between the first and eleventh volumes without ever even having to open them.

Overall I found this to be an intriguing supernatural series and although I rather feel the first volumes were stronger than the later ones I think as a whole it is a pretty wonderful story. Highly recommended to teens and up. ( )
