Review: This is one of the best new series that has come out in the last couple of years from VIZ media. The plot and characters are never dull, and as each volume came out the story line and the ships got even better. I was so sad to find out last week that this series was coming to an end this month. I still feel like there could have been more volumes that the story could have progressed to, along with the characters. Anyhow, the final volume ( 15) was everything I could have hopped for and more. I was not at all disappointed with how the story or characters ended up.

5 out of 5 stars.

1-15 volumes.

Manga. Shojo. Action. Romance. Fiction.

Published by VIZ Media.

But now that she’s finally a recruit, she’s finding her dream job to be a bit of a nightmare. Especially since her hard-hearted drill instructor seems to have it in for her!
