The ending of the story was amazing. Very "artsy" and something left open for the reader to interpret some things. Reading this book really helped to answer some of the questions that had been building up from the last books. Finishing the book left we wanting to read more, not because the story didn't leave me satisfied because it did leave me satisfied, but because I wanted to see more about what the ocean held.
It doesn't answer all the lingering questions, but that was obviously never the intent. This fantasy story is not about hard science and specific answers to every mystery, but about mood, and emotion, and Igarashi's incredible artwork. There are pages after pages of beautiful undersea scenes in this volume, climaxing with an emotionally-satisfying conclusion.
Well done, Viz.
