Love this series. I hope Viz releases the last volume. I need to know how it ends.
Truly a wonderful series by a unique author. Majo got me hooked to his works. The art reminds me of some early modern masters, and plus it feel like Van Gogh to me. A child like spirit while reading this.
It reminds me the French version of the second volume was released recently. One more in my to read list.
The first one was a very pleasant read. If you like slow pace mangas with a bit of fantasy this is definitely a must read
