"Okay, let's just start out with this. Yu Watase is my absolute favorite Manga writer of all time. She has a box but her stories are always too big to fit inside. Ceres Celestial Legend (or Ayashi no Ceres) is an incredible and creative series. When I got this, I had already read the first half of the manga. It starts on the episode: The Holy Relic of the Mikages. Wonderful episode. The discs have 12 episodes which may make it seem like a rip-off, at between 45 and 50 dollars. But believe me, it's worth it. The series has two big downfalls. The english dubs, and the blood. I got a little tired of red. I definitely recommend watching the series in Japanese. They just take away so much of the emotion in the english version. Blood is in nearly every episode, especially towards the end. The story cancels out the blood though, so does the animation. Yet again, the art is beautiful. (*tear* I wish I could draw like that!) The story is about Aya Mikage who happens to be the reincarnation of a revenge bent celestial maiden (Ceres). Her story unfolds in the first six manga (I dunno about the first 12 eps.). There is NO similarity between it and Sailor Moon! Be warned. The manga is a bit different. The anime starts in volume 5 and to all appearances, skips six. They might've covered it in the first one, I don't know. But this is a must at least read for any Yu Watase fan! I definitely would recommend this to anyone who likes celestial maidens, reincarnation, hot guys, um... blood (you don't have to like it, but it would probably make the series flawless.), and beautiful animation and plots."

"IF you are a fan of Yu Watase...then you will love Ceres Celestial Legend!! The ending is not what you would expect. Ceres is still looking for her Mana so she can return to heaven...and the other charaters just grow on you. Yuhi still loves Aya and Aya still loves Toya and he finally finds out his past!! If you bought the collector's edition volume 1...then don't wait to buy the 2nd edition!!! You will definately Cry!!"
