This was probably that started to lose my interest in the series. The concept and plot were good, but to me it just seemed like recycled material with really great art.

I watched and loved the Anime version of this since I was a kid. It also landed on my favorites.

For now, I got no plans for buying a copy.

More secrets are revealed in here, we learn a little more about Toya, and more about the C-Genome and how it can affect people.
Petite série de fantasy aux jolis dessins et qui se lit sans déplaisir. Mais parfois, ce qu'Aya peut être cruche !

First manga I started collecting. Watase-san is a literary genius. I love her works. Ceres is an incredible story.
