This series, overall, was pretty good. However, the ending is extremely unsatisfactory and brings up more questions than it should. (You know, since everything should be wrapped up instead.) If I have to start taking a magnifying glass to the cover and artwork in the book in order to play Sherlock Holmes, it's pretty bad.



More detailed information/issues I had are hidden behind the spoiler link.

Jiu Jiu...has had to have had the worst, nonsensical, most confusing endings in all of the manga I've read. I doubt many have read the manga on here but if you have, please answer some questions for me (warning, spoilers ahead)

1.Is Yuki alive? At first, they said he died. Then they said he faked his death. But then it turned out White was pretending to be him and he was dead. Then in the last chapter, Yuki appeared as if he were alive...WHAT. THE.F***?

2. Why did Snow and Night suddenly lose thei

I didn't even know that this was the final volume of the series until I recieved my preorder and saw it say so on the back of the book. That said, wow, this volume was a rollercoaster of twists and turns and emotions.

But the ending... I was going ''what what WHAT?!" during the last ten pages. So much confusion. SO MANY QUESTIONS.

THIS WHOLE THING IS GONNA BE NOTHING BUT SPOILERS JUST A HEADS UP SO MANY SPOILERS
Instead of a review of just this volume, I'm going to voice my opinions on the series as a whole. I genuinely enjoyed the first few volumes. The fourth volume was where it started to get weird and confusing. The final volume was just a train wreck.
In volume one, we are presented with a world in which there are demons that prey on humans, and there are humans called hunters who destroy the demons to keep humans safe

I'm MAJORLY confused on a number of things, and definitely conflicted about the ending. I don't know how it really could've gone any other way, though. I guess? But, yeah, conflicted. The whole last half of the book saw me crying quite a lot, I was so distressed over the events. (And so confused!!) Apparently the author wrote the last chapters while also writing another story (or two?), so I can see where they might've lost sight of what they were trying to say, and what they'd already told us. ...more

Going in, I had no idea that this was the FINAL VOLUME of this series. Having read 3 volumes before this one, I was attached to the characters, and didn't really want to say GOODBYE to them. And, THAT ENDING...I was all WTF?!? at it.
----------
This volume focuses mostly on Takamichi getting paired off and married. She's engaged to Soujiro, but she doesn't really feel the need to be married, except to take over as the head of the Hachioji family.
Once Snow and Night return to her, they feel like

You know what, even though I could tell it was pretty unlikely, I was still gunning for a menage a trois ending with both Snow and Night. :/ It's okay, foursome with her kids instead?!

I still love Touya-sensei's art, especially the dogs. (I thought a certain reviewer not on this site was too harsh about 'anatomy'. Just take it as part of her art style.) The conflict and Yuki could have been explained better. Would have liked more fluffy dog instead of huh jiu jiu vhats.

I’m honestly a little confused about the ending. Probably mostly because I don’t really believe that what happened did, or because I really want it to, but don’t think that it actually did. What actually happened?

There was the whole horrid mess with Yuki, then a horrible thing happened with Snow and Night, and it seems like some of that was fixed by the end, but was it actually? It seems like Takamichi is happy at the end, either way, though, so I’m glad

huh. that sure was a thing that happened

oddly enough i didn't find it all that confusing. i think reading xxxholic and pandora hearts has lowered my expectations for fulfilling storytelling, like oh we don't know who she married? we don't now whether her brother is alive or not? we have no idea why snow and night temporarily got stuck as dogs? ehhh, just accept it, such is how manga rolls

and tbh besides the brother thing none of it bothers me all that much. who cares who takamichi marries, all t

I am so confused. I didn't know who was fighting who and whatever reveals occurred felt hastily added in. I don't even really understand the conclusion. I think they had a happy-ish ending. (?)

The ending to this great series was rushed to a point it was not enjoyable. I'm very disappointed that such a great series ended so poorly. :(

This one was absolutely perfect!!! And I loved the ending. I wish it wasn't the ending but it was a great one!

I feel like I'm missing something. That's a problem, since this is only a five volume series and I've read them all in a fairly short period of time. It's not like I'd forget stuff.

This ending was just awful. I don't get it. The time skipping at the end just made it so I couldn't follow what was going on rather than helping to shorten time in between events.

I was disappointed.
