Now, for the technical side. I've said this before, and I'm going to keep doing so - the quality of the translation and the book itself are good. The usual awkward Japanese-to-English turns of phrase are present, but wrapped up in an otherwise sharp translation that moves past them smoothly before they can become too jarring. It's a nicely printed, solid volume with a pleasant heft while still fitting comfortably in hand. I wouldn't be surprised if someone at Seven Seas worked to make a double volume like this still a comfortable experience to read.
Mizukami's art has noticeably tightened up over the course of the series, as well. I've always liked his work, but even into the early parts of the series the character art could be kind of rough. There are still some off bits, but overall by this part of the series he'd gotten a lot better while retaining his distinctive style. Yayoi in particular is great to see fighting, with a very fluid and animated style that shows how much thought Mizukami put into how the Knights would use their powers in battle.
