Is there more ?

"A good series and I enjoyed the 3 collections / 26 episodes. But where's the end ? I really enjoyed the animation and the depth of character development, but this last one has left me hanging as I expected the series to come to some sort of conclusion. Unfortunately this just left me hungry as very little is wrapped up. I'd still recommend it."
HOW COME NOONE HAS REVIEWED THIS EXCELLENT SHOW YET;

"I must express my surprise when i saw that no reviews have been written for this amazing show,when i bought the first volume i immediately wished to buy the remaining volumes.The main problem that some see with the show is its lack of coherence, but this is not true , since what the show was all about is the love story between Roy and Katsumi , Kiddy and Ralph , Yuki and Toru , and the antagonistic relationship between Rally and Rosa.Viewed in that context the show is more than coherent.That also explains why many episodes don't feature so much action , but instead explain those relationships.For example there are two episodes with megadynes , one of which is simply stunning, and the episode where Yuki meets Toru in 1999 was very touching.Also the only ones mentioning the lucifer hawk as aliens are the media and some of the officials but not AMP itself.They know the truth and call them demons not exraterestrials.There was never a sudden turn to magic since the show was always involved with that , just look at the scene with which it starts and you will immediately understand it is about magic and not aliens.Katsumi from the begining uses spells and not technology ,esp or anything else.It is unfair to state that it doesn't end since it was interested in the stories between the characters more than the fight against the lucifer hawk.I haven't read the manga yet so i don't know how that chapter ends but some issues were resolved and other shows ended in such a convoluted way that it is refreshing to see a show that ends in a positive way.The cgi dragon is not exactly state of the art, but is that enough to blame the whole show;This anime is best viewed in japanese.Promising a continuation is not bad ,it is an optimistic way which is not so frequent in anime lately where most shows flaunt philosophy that does not really add to the show.The message is clear:"We go on and that is human because we can love".It is told in the excelent theme song and every great song in the series for that matter."
