Bringing up the name Kaishaku is always an interesting one. Most notable for writing the controversial yuri classic Kannazuki no Miko, the manga-duo Kaishaku are known to write their favorite things into their stories, whether they fit or not.

Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora (also known as Shattered Angels) is no different: an experience.

sono hanabiraOkay, guys, hold on to your seats because what’s gonna hit you now is the best news ever! So MangaGamer yet again listened to our demands and will translate another Sono Hanabira title for us! Though, that is definitely not the best part of it, since it’s not just going to be any of the numerous SonoHana installments. No, it’s gonna be my personal favorite of all of them, A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael.

Even though Lena has already reviewed the movie, there are some slight differences in the TV anime that that was based on, so I think a review of the original material seen through a different set of eyes is something worth exploring. Is A’s one of those instances where the sequel is better than the original? I think it’s a fairly easy question to answer…

Having rebelled against the will of God, archangel Lucifer is cast out of heaven, doomed to spend the rest of her days in the pits of Hell.

Some of you already anticipated this exact outcome, but for others, this comes as a total surprise. For me, I kinda saw it coming, seeing just how much support this work has gotten from the very beginning. It’s also one of the few ongoing ones that besides Citrus—which for obvious reasons wasn’t featured in this tournament—is definitely one of the most popular ones around right now.

Personally, I had a feeling and the hope it would be this awesome kind of non-Japanese vs Japanese kind of finale, and that was actually how things had already turned out in the past few rounds. I just loved seeing your reactions to so many of the awesome and oh so close “fights” that took place this tournament.
