by Yukito KishiroToday is a sad, sad day. The original Battle Angel was my favorite graphic novel of all time (since I was a teen too). It was drawn so amazingly well and written with such dark human emotion. A masterpiece in my book. So when I heard Kishiro (who ended the series abruptly) would start again, I was elated. But when I started reading this, I was crushed. Last Order has lost ALL the elements that made the original so special. The art is so simple it border-lines on bad (due to him moving over to drawing on a computer). While the action and movement is still well done, the style has changed. It is much less creative. And finally, the storytelling is missing all the character driven plot. All those interesting characters that you could sympathize, that were sad, that were real. Here the story is just a jumble. Nothing focused. Nothing interesting. Just about guns and fights. Battle Angel has become simply a Japanese comic for boys. Such a sad end for such a (once) great series.
