For the record, Elliot is one of my favorite characters ever. Ever. And I have a long list of favorite characters. He's adorable and sweet and brave
So, I just had to correct that little stupidity of mine. Here's the original review:
Two major things happened when I read this volume: I decided that I really love Echo, and I decided that I actually like Elliot.
Echo was so sweet at the festival, I just had to love her then; and I feel so bad for her. Her existence makes me kind of hate Vincent, which I really don't want to do, since he's a seriously cool villain.
I'm not so sure why I like Elliot. Maybe it's just because of the look Oz gets on his face whenever he's talking to the guy nowadays. Maybe it's because he made Oz feel better once before, so I've forgiven him all the shouting and snapping. Maybe I just like the fact that he's not like anyone else. I don't know. But I'm glad he's around, anyway.
I like Leo, too. He's different, kind of unassuming. Bizarrely, and this has nothing to do with the name, he reminds me of Reno from the original FFVII game. He kind of has the quiet, leaderly slow-walking not-quite-a-leader thing going on, but he's obviously nicer than Reno. Anyway. I can hear the Turks tune playing every time he appears on a panel. Kind of creepy.
Anyway, I still have five thousand itching questions from coming to the end of this volume, so I need to read the next one - as soon as possible.
