Hohenheim *shudder* took up at least half of the camera time in this volume, so I'm almost tempted to give it just four stars.
. . . But I can't. The rest of it is just too awesome. Depressing and funny and sweet and heart-wrenching and just.....so.....awesome. I could say why, but I have a better idea: instead of reading this, just sit down and read the volume yourself, and find out. Trust me, it'll be worth it.
Oh, and despite the fact that he was involved in most of the info we're given in this volume, I am glad to finally have some answers. And Izumi appeared briefly, too - she's so amazing, and she hasn't been around enough recently. I hope that changes.
The only way I'll find out is to read more, obviously. So I suppose I'd better leave this review alone and get to it. . . .
One more thing: Eddie, if you pull a Babylon 5 ending on me, I will not be happy. So don't do that, okay? Please?
