So..why do I give it a 4? Well, that's because not all of the episodes are on par with each other (in my opinion).

I am not a massive manga reader, so considering that i've stuck with this for all the chapters shows that it really IS good xD

The first volume is the weakest one, as it's just the introduction to the story. The quality, contrary to many series, actually gets better as it… Read more
