However, that is only the beginning of the strangeness. When Aya recover's a woman's purse from a fleeing theif, she falls twenty feet from an overpass into a road. She doesn't just fall, though-she floats. Dazed, Aya stands in the street as a car rushes towards her. Enter Toya. He knocks Aya out of the car's path, saving her life. When her friends reach her, Toya disappears into the crowd.
Aya and Aki make plans with their friends to go out for karaoke for their birthday, but when the twins reach home, they are told by their parents that they have to go to their grandfather's house instead.
When they arrive at Grandfather's the next day, Aya and Aki are surprised to find all of their relatives sitting at a long table, dressed in black. Toya appears and puts a box down in front of them. Aya is surprisingly nervous, feeling her heart beat faster. Aki opens the box. Within it is a sort of shriveled up hand. The sight of it causes Aya to change for the first of what will be many times-into Ceres, a Heavenly Maiden. The mummified hand explodes. Breathing hard, Aya returns to her normal self. Confused, she turns to Aki. But something is happening to him, as well. Cuts appear all over his body and he slumps forward, unconscious and bleeding, onto the table.Read more ›
The problem comes AFTER Book 1, when the utterly cool premise has been established and one has to slog through the rest of the story. First problem: EVERYTHING falls a distant second to Aya's self-absorbed quest for love. In one early scene, ten innocent people are horribly burned in a fire. A whole three panels after witnessing this, our heroine whines "There's a fire burning in my heart too" because some guy is not paying her enough attention. It's enough to make one barf up blood. The problem is not just that she's self-centered, mind you, it's that the universe really DOES revolve around her. Strangers have nothing better to do than devote themselves body and soul to her protection. Men prettier than she is fall madly in love with her despite her lack of manners, morals, or intellect. And the INTERESTING villains who are trying to murder her for SENSIBLE reasons give way to idiot villains obsessed with getting into her panties.
Another reviewer mentioned that the heroine was not a good role model for teen girls.Read more ›
