Rin and the others battle madmen and mother nature, but as long as Manji's still chained to his prison cell wall, they're not going to get very far.
Sweet and hilarious, scary and horrible, all tossed together with loads of exciting, life-or-death action. How can I laugh and go "awww" over the fun bits when I know the cockroach is alive, free, and (oh so sadly!!) not alone?! Dang that Samura, he's got me right where he wants me. And I guess I'm happy to be there, too. Only I'd be happier if the cockroach were dead (for reals, this time, 'kay?). *sigh*
