Recommended to Leila by: Max Bowman

The final volume of what has been one of the best manga series I've read in ages. This one begins with Shinchi's showdown fight with the much stronger Goto and then looks at what happens next.

One of this volume's biggest strengths is that the author always had a definite end point in sight - so there's very little filler or overly drawn out narrative - I'ts one concise story which is so rare in manga these days - the popular titles seeming to have endless volumes and tonnes of filler. Artwork is clean and while it's not as freaky as previous volumes really suits the story.

Pretty much thumbs up all round, solid art, fantastic story asking some really big questions.
