2012 Reread: I got lost in this for a month. My very first full reread since the series hit its ending. Since I knew where it would start and go and end up. It was just as terrible, wonderful, painful, heartbreaking, heart healing, amazing as every other read. I never stop knowing my heart belongs to this.

The thing I don't like about these comics is that they're too bloody short. I just feel like I'm getting into the story again and then it ends. And there's only one volume left! Bleh. This was good though - I really liked Katchoo and Francine finally getting back together.
Nearing the end of a great series. Overall great volume, with some very bittersweet moments. Long-time SiP fans will not be disappointed with this novel, I have enjoyed the rest of the series and this volume is a fantastic and emotional read.
