The cover art and first couple pages drew me in, absolutely threw me to the floor with the detail and color. The rest of the book did not disappoint me. The art is amazingly detailed, refreshingly so, being fantastically epic in times of action, and laughingly lighthearted in times of comedy.

I really enjoy this manga and can't wait to pick up the next volume. For fans of Trigun, give this one a read. Definitely a winner.
I liked the trio, but they seemed too crazy and "rambunctious" to be part of the war that was going on. I felt like the plot wasn't serious enough, and the trio was so excited about their jobs which I thought wasn't realistic.
I loved the action and artwork, but most of the story was a bit boring.
