Ok, I was rather disappointed with this. Why didn't they take the time to do a real manga, rather than take screen caps? I hated the way they did this, it's just like watching the movie and it's a waste of time to me. Just watch the actual movie, you'll enjoy it better. It gets 3 stars because the movie awesome, not because I like this animanga.

If you're a first time buyer, buy all four of the books as soon as you can. I picked up this book as a fillin for another series that hasn't been continued yet. This series is extraordinary! The anime is like the others but the story is great, while you're at it, buy the movie too!
