Huh. It was a good story. It was funny & cute with nice artwork. Very cartoony artwork, but nice. jinto & lafiel were cute together. But for a story line about a super human race conquering thousands of other planets & another group trying to stop them it was a little TO cute.myou know what I mean?

Something that should be some dramatic, gorey sci-fly awesomeness turned into a kiddish joke.

I'll have a review of this going on Bureau 42 in July. In short, the manga is a good adaptation of the light novel (and anime), though the manga uses more super-deformed character designs in comedic moments than the show did. Generally, the manga feels like it plays up the comedy a little bit more than the show, though the dramatic beats *are* there.

Once I found the glossary, my understanding of what was going on and being said became MUCH clearer. It was an alright storyline. If you're into the sci-fi, space travel stuff, then you'll like this.
