Wow. This is fantastic. I haven't seen the movie nor did I pay any attention to what it was about so I was totally surprised with the plot here. A fabulous story. It has a bit of a Neon Genesis vibe to it and of course Takeshi Obata's art is incredible. The "Groundhog Day" plot isn't new but with the twist of a soldier training for battle it sure becomes a completely different experience. This is rated T+ for its incredible violence which is completely necessary since death is a major theme of the plot. The book is action-packed from start to finish and ends with a shocking twist. Thank goodness I already have Vol. 2 lined-up!
