When I read a series of books -like this one, I tend to judge the series as a whole and at first I thought the way the others were going I was going to wind up being weird and boring! I was thinking that this series was just someone trying their hands on being a manga artist. But in the end I was wrong, this book, the last one, help redeemed some part of that for me!

In the first book I thought this guy has an unique way of drawing that he is putting to make his mangas different, distinctive! Fir...more

MIKI FALLS: WINTER is the final volume in the four volume MIKI FALLS manga series. The story opens with Miki and Hiro camping out and on the run from the Deliverers, who are out to find them, since their relationship is against Deliverer rules.

Anra, Hiro's hold spirit, is leading Miki and Hiro on a path to Otaru, where they should be able to catch a boat to aid in their escape plan. But when it appears that Anra isn't listenin...more

An interesting ending to the series. Mother Freya pissed me off.
There was a moment, on page 62, where Hiro says: "I've done nothing to deserve that kind of devotion." (meaning, Miki ran away to be with him, suffered tremendous challenges and blah blah blah). Anyway, all I could think was: "You're completely right Hiro. You did absolutely nothing to qualify as worthy of that kind of devotion, in my books, and yet, Miki threw everything away to be with you." But my problem here...more

One thing I enjoy in series is the sense of fashion Mark Crilley gives his characters.

?? Page 58 - "I'll see if I can't get Saka-chan off his butt to fix ya some grub." I'm checking on this, isn't -chan an address for a female? Maybe it a joke about Saka.

Okay, the story is a bit "sappy," but the suspense keeps you intrigued. I think the end is a bit rushed, the voice of Akuzu doesn't come across with the force or expression to create the strong presence the character demands. The discussion doe...more

I really wanted to like this series. I had heard very good things about it. However, I found all four graphic novels to be boring and had very little motivation to even finish the series.

The animation is pretty 85% of the time. To me, it read like a storyboard, which I guess you could say is how graphic novels are supposed to come off. However, It took me away from the story, more so than when I have read manga in the past.

Not my cup of tea.

This last book in the series was no disappointment. I loved every page. I wish there more like it out there--the novel-like quality of the writing, the soft, beautiful art, the lack of hyperbole in the characters' emotions... And also the fact that this delivers its story in 4 volumes, making it a more affordable journey to experience, and one that is easily read in one sitting. I'd recommend this series to anyone.
Adam Heine
This whole series was not quite what I expected. It's a really cute love story, with less suspense than I hoped for (though this fourth book had plenty of it).

I felt like there was more text than there should've been--telling more than showing--but the art is FANTASTIC. And Mark Crilley has a great feel for how to use comic panels. I'll probably never write comics, but I feel like I learned a lot.

Miki and Hiro are on the run from the Deliverers and Akuzu, the powerful Elder who is determined to find Hiro and make an example out of him. Braving the elements and not knowing who to trust the two star-crossed lovers find out if a Deliverer can actually find love with a human.

A satisfying conclusion to a fabulous series! I loved every panel of this series from cover to cover.

i finished this in like 20 minutes. i couldn't put it down for a minute. this was a mix of romance, science fiction and some good quality writing lol. every page had a quotable line and it made me want to fall in love :'). it was totally great. i don't want to reveal too much but this series is definitely 20 out of 10.

better than the rest of the series to conclude. still a lot of melodramatic emotional scenes.
again, art was great. I liked the last few pages that showed sketches and early character concepts.
ok series but probably wouldn't have kept through the whole thing if I didn't like the illustration.

It ended just like I thought it would! Mark Crilley came to our library last year, and I was very impressed to learn about his process. His art is beautiful, and this is a very satisfying conclusion to the love story he began in Miki Falls: Spring.

I was surprised to find that I enjoyed reading this manga series. First manga books I've ever read and I'm glad that my reading challenge introduced me to it. Not the most in depth intellectual read, but for young readers I do recommend it!

On page 160, I thought maybe I was going to have to unfriend Mark Crilley on Facebook, but then I got to page 162 and changed my mind. Close one. Needless to say, the series totally sucked me in: teens, drama, a paranormal twist, and excellent art.
Laura
Cute, short series with some twists and turns that I personally found rather enjoyable, and the premise is interesting enough. The art style, too, though definitely influenced by Japanese manga, is unique in it's American style.

i read this book and it is a really good book because it is basicly tlking about a couple trying to stay together so they go threw a hwole big process to be together!!!awesome book lol
Carrie
More about a girl who met a boy and fell for him completely. But with more snow and suspense in this volume. I'm pretty sure it's the fluffiest little thing I've ever read. Awwww.
Anne
Really liked this series. 4.5 stars for the series as a whole. Very sweet, hopeful, encouraging. (if you like that sort of "love conquers all" thing)
Caroline
In this last, wonderful book Miki and Hiro finally get caught. What consequences will they face? Will they ever be able to be together?
Susan
Everyone has these giant chins. It's very distracting. There was a happy ending, but I can't say that I really cared about Miki and Hiro.
