If this was a review of just Chihaya, it would get 5 stars. But a few things keep it from that. To start, there is no furigana, which makes the book a little harder to use for those with a flimsier grasp on kanji. The format of the book works: the panels are nearly wholly translated with the original Japanese in the margins, which is fine until there are three or four lines smooshed along the edge of the binding. And the translation is...well, it isn't localized the same way you might have senn it through scanlation groups. Don't hold that against the book -- it just gives you reason to cross-reference the wording while giggling at the bits of anachronisms and Britishness. And of course the story is fantastic. Buy it!
