Anyone of you who reads this manga? I'm reading it now (I even buy them, in french, because there is no other way) and it's really good. I like the style and the story, it has really good characters. (my avatar is one of the bad guys)
It puts up so many questions without answering them soon, which makes you want to read on all the time.
Well I'm curious if this manga is known among members here.
(OT: I've also seen the anime, and it has been changed so much it isn't like the manga at all... They even made every human that dies into some monster. That sounds like censoring Really, the only good thing in the anime is the use of colors in the background *cries*)
