It's great!
23 July 1999 | by mizuSee all my reviews

Having Himiko as the protagonist makes Miyu's personality and character really shine, and I think this makes the series more interesting because it's Himiko who goes through the trials with Miyu as the mysterious figure. Plus it's got some interesting stuff regarding life and death. It's definitely favorite series!
