I wonder how I escaped this serie since it seems to be one of the big hit. So thanks to Googlez_kun and the what are you reading next thread :-)
I started with the anime in order to catch rapidly so it was a pleasant surprise to see that there was some big modifications in the plot, that made reading the last chapters of the manga more entertaining.
All in all, this manga gave me a Full metal alchemist feeling (which is quite good). The letter bees and the alchemists seems to have some common points.
As for the recent chapters, it seems we will have some long awaited answers (well not that long for me) about the capital, or maybe even more questions. I wonder if we will see Lag's mum in the flashback
This is one of the series that makes me cry a lot. I feel like hugging the Lag kid and tell him that everything will be fine, and be strong. hehe
My first encounter was the anime TV, and it touched my heart. It was really a great story and the music was good too. I'm now reading the manga and enjoying it.
Don't take me wrong, I really love this manga, I don't even have the words to express what I feel when I'm reading it, it's just wonderful and it made me cry a lot of time. (I'm easily moved but still)
I don't know how it is in another countries regarding publications. The fact is, in France, 18 volumes have been released. And the end is supposed to happen in the 20th volume. I don't know how it could be true, the author can't resolve all that is left in two volumes, that's impossible. I'm so upset, Tegami Bachi is one of my favourites and I genuinely thought this manga had a lot of potential.
So, I wonder : what about Japan ? Is this manga successful ? If not, it would explain why it seems to end a bit abruptly ? (yeah, I don't know about the end yet but I'm being pessimist)
