I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I got the last page wrong - that was actually part of the preview of the next book. Which meant getting to the end of this one felt more than a bit sudden.
I'm leaning towards 3.5 stars for this one. It seemed like a 4-star read up until some stuff with Sadako near the end. The story was great. The handling of gender issues was garbage.
