This book is by far my favourite in the series, absolutely amazing in terms of both plot and (especially!) character development. Which is why I feel it would be unfair to lower my rating because of the quality of the translation/editing, even though it was quite outrageous: whole words and, I hear, in the case of the hardback edition, a whole chapter missing. So there, five stars no thanks to TokyoPop, and I recommend double-checking dubious passages with Eugene Woodbury's online translation.
