So far I've read the first 5 volumes of this manga. Premise: Awesome. Story: meh. Not really even with a capital M. Tankobon manga like Tegami Bachi are something I can see myself getting into; where there is an individual story with a beginning and end to each volume without much cutoff (ala Mushishi). It's really a cozy and intimate little experience that I get with most books. I like manga, but the problem with other series I enjoy like Soul Eater is that it's just one collective work where y ...more

And the story continues. This one was almost entirely plot centered, character development driven, and really enjoyable~ I loved the mix of crack and funnies along with emotional scenes. And just, UGH. UGH!!! ;3; ...we finally got to see him, guys. We finally got to see him. *Sobbing in a corner* I'M SO EMOTIONAL OVER THIS. I want to know what happened! There's still so much we don't know! And even though he was there, we have no idea what happened to him and just JUST ALL THE PAIN! I'm really u

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

This is a pivotal book in the series. So far the overriding plot has been Lag's search for Gauche Suede. This time he seeks out "The Man Who Could Not Become Spirit" as he has information that he has at least seen Gauche. As we already know from the previous book this is not the real "TMWCNBS" but a victimized impostor. Lag finds this out and helps this man and his partner, Sarah. There are a lot of battle scenes in this volume, and perhaps too many as I fo

*Mild Spoilers*

So I really missed Niche this volume but I can see that she overshadows the story at times and we need to spend time with other characters to make our hearts grow even fonder of her.

So we learn why the similarities between Hunt and Sarah's show and Gaunche. They are witnesses. Their story is poignant - to care so much for one another.

Then a marauder steals the one clue about Gauche! Some cool frames here with Noir and his companion. Love seeing Niche mad. Though I was awed at the

5 volumes in and I’m liking this series more and more. Story arcs are also good.

I forget how much I adore Tegami Bachi. I LOVE the art style. It's just GORGEOUS. And it's even coupled with a fascinating world and story plus cool characters.

I especially like this volume because of plot progression with Gauche Suede and and the subplot with Niche wandering off. I love Niche. I love Niche and Lag.

I don't even get upset when we get long, involved backstories of minor characters like Sarah and Hunt, because it's still interesting. And beautiful.

Ooh, anti-government sentiment, and the return (of a kind) of Gauche Suede! The plot thickens!
