User Review  - SparklePonies - LibraryThing

The characters are well developed, the premise interesting and the art work is great. Night is not my favorite character and at one point in this volume I started to really dislike him, but toward the end he started to redeem himself. Riiko is a sweet girl and I really enjoy her character. Read full review

About the author (2006)

A manga artist for over ten years, Watase's debut came in 1989 at the age of 18 when her short story PAJAMA DE OJAMA (An Intrusion in Pajamas) appeared in the monthly Shjo Comic manga anthology. Since then she has written and drawn some 50 volumes worth of different short stories and long-running manga series, including the fantastically popular FUSHIGI YGI, also available in English from VIZ. Her works have provided the basis for two television series, an OVA series, anime soundtrack CDs, and a string of novels.
