it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** Amazing. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

I cried. I still haven't quite grasped that this is the end of this beautiful, infinitely touching manga series. But I was choked up from beginning to end. Finally, though, it was with joy and not with sorrow or frustration. Rarely have I read so moving and meaningful a finale. It's really something when all the pieces of a puzzle fall into place, and yet there's nothing cheesy, nothing stilted. Just pure emotion, and a deep-rooted sense of peace and satisfaction.

There's not much else I can say, except that these characters will live forever in my mind and heart, along with the best and brightest of book characters.

This was the first manga series I've ever read, and the first I've ever finished...and I think in my mind it will always be the first.

Thank you, Furuba.
