"Poor Urara, well, I have to say that I was happy with this one until I saw the ending.. (sigh).. The first episode with the famous (boobs and bathtub) scene was hilarious, and I laughed outloud a lot watching this one. This last DVD was very good compared to the others in the series. At least they didn't stretch it out too long, otherwise it would have been even more of a let down. I have very mixed feelings towards this series. I get sexually frustrated watching it. It promises more, but all you get is turned down, just like Urara. Tonma is a big chicken who doesn't seem to have a clue.. I recommend watching this in both languages, I found that I enjoyed it more in Japanese. A lot of the jokes weren't the same, and they added more of a raunchy and stupid persona to Tonma. He is a little smarter in the Japanese version and this is seen in the bathtub scene. Over all, if you've come this far and need the last one to finish, I suggest you do. It only gets better from the third one.The depressing ending will leave you with an empty feeling. But this can be remedied by thinking of other more fulfilling series, like Trigun or Outlaw Star.Enjoy!"
The best volume of the series...

"All the worms hatch out as the series draws to a conclusion. Perhaps the best aspect of the wrap is the revelation that there is no real honor, innocence or selflessness in any of the 'love' situations. Almost everything shrouded as 'love' is either selfish desire or hope of controlling others through deception. DVD 4 offers far more sexual proximity between Tounma and Urara while everyone comes closer to discovering what they want in life. The ending is bittersweet with a simultaneously uplifting message about self reliance, while being rather depressing in its statements about love and intimacy. Personally, I liked the fourth volume best although it'll make the tenderhearted fans cry and wish for something rather lighter and more mundane for a conclusion. If you have followed the series thus far, this is definitely worth while."
