An almost-pleasant volume
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Well, after Toya forgot about Aya, she basically just wanted to go away forever, so Ceres took over.(last eps) Now, Mihori really is another Ceres. She's also sworn revenge on Aya. After two small encounters with the Mikage Progenitor, Toya remembers Aya, and Aya decides to confront life and emerge again. When Mihori can't physically hurt Aya, she takes a very disturbing action. While being "Ceres" she flies very high, then changes back, and plunges down to the street. Needles to say, there was lots of blood, and Mihori wasn't exactly intact anymore. *shiver* Toya still can't fully remember exactly who Aya is, so he leaves. After a few rather minor events, Aya is captured, and Kagami attempts to alter her memory. Blah blah blah....Toya saves her, and now the show gets a bit happy. Toya and Aya travel together. They get a little apartment. Normal couple now! Then it gets back to the story line. Don't worry, there's more I haven't spoiled (sorry!), and it's important, so this volume is informative. I actually felt happy after watching this DVD, instead of plunging into deep depression, much like Toya...^^; I recommend this volume. Much is revealed, and it's very good! lol."

"Yu has done it again. From the creater of Fushigi Yuugi, here's her latest anime/manga, Ayashi no Ceres, or Ceres, Celestial Legends. (Personally, the Japanese name has a bit more zing to it, no?) This series is very fast paced with a plot that sucks you in an spits you out. The story begins with Aya and her twin brother Aki. When it is discovered she carries within her the blood of a celestial maiden, her life goes to shambles. A mysterious man named Tooya comes to her aid while her brother is taken away by her family, whom she can no longer trust. With the help of friends, and a strong will, she attempts to discover the mystery of the Mikage family, while keeping her own fate and heart in mind.I highly recommend this series for anyone that loves plot twists, romance, and humor. If you liked Magic Knight Rayearth, Fushigi Yuugi, or Inu Yasha, I think you'll like this series. Ps: As an added bonus, the soundtrack to this series is awesome too!"
