The blend of Usagi and sci fi works well and what we get is samurai action with a taste of star wars, star trek, blake's 7 ( a British sci fi show that influenced firefly immensely), and does it with style.
The characters are well developed and the writing is top notch. The miniseries form a continuing saga and down in three steps. The beginning ( the heroes are attacked) the middle ( they strike back) and the end ( They race against enemies to gain back the wealth of the heroes kingdom). The art conveys the characters emotions well and what emotions they are. You really feel for the characters and what they go through.
The stories reference many past usagi stories and characters and familiar faces show up in the form of new characters and it's all done well. The only fault I have is that the long promised 4th miniseries has not yet been done. Still this is a great story that can be read as complete on its own, and it is an amazing story. It can be a great way to get a feel for the Usagi stories if you are a new reader and not sure where to start. If you are a longtime fan then you need to read this. Highly recommended.
