I'm impressed! I loved this story completely, combined with the wonderful writing, it is truly remarkable and captivating.
Obviously I know nothing about the original story. And obviously this isn't something I usually read. Did I feel lost among all those unfamiliar names? A bit, yes. But there is a cheat sheet. Use it! :) And I also knew some of them, since I have read some Japanese manga in the past. And let me just say they're very big on their Gods and Spirits. :)
There is some not so hidden meaning in this story, something you can take for yourself and learn from it. Wisdom. Advice. Whatever you want to call it. It teaches you about loss, about friendship and forgiveness.
It was sweet and heartwarming. And I can't believe that ending, I let loose a few tears. I want more!!!
And the artwork is beautiful on the cover. Absolutely worthy of this story.
