This Concluding volume to the series was very epic in so much proportions of awesomeness. I loved this series from beginning to end I really wish he made more to this series I feel that this series had so much potential In becoming and excellent manga from shonen jump and I would definitely pick up all the volumes of this series if he had made more. Seeing that Astro's weapon the Orgue turned into a sword was freaking amazing I feel like the Orgue could have turned into different kinds of weapons like. A shield, chainsaw, hammer, blaster, etc and that other characters in the story could have had a weapon similar to the Orgue in he series.This series was amazing and it's a must pick up for any manga fan.
