My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s the same story, and you already know how it ends if you’ve read the sequel… but, it still blew-me-away! Takiko is a strong, sad, but worthy protagonist. Watase leaves off the twists and turns that just add pointless length to an otherwise good story (unlike the original).

Yes. This series is better than the original. I can’t wait to see what Watase does with the byakko protagonist in the final story… if she ever gets around to writing it! Oh, please, someone convince her to write it!

Read it with a box of tissues.
