Fantastic book! I love the way the author wrote of Time as valueless until the person holding it gives it value :) Brilliant

Ohmigoodness! I loved this so much! I thought that it'd just be an average shojo/fantasy manga, but it defiantly exceeded these expectations. It has great themes and is vaguely reminiscent of an episode of Doctor Who.

*spoiler* ish... As a student somewhat invested in dramatics, I LOVED the last two chapters. What the guy said about how he can't explain why he loves drama, he has to show it is so true! I can't wait to read volume two!!!!!

Beautifully drawn. Slightly goofy premise, and the episodic stories seem likely to get samey-same... but a good choice for a younger reader.
