Reviews - What do customers think about The Guin Saga: Book One: The Leopard Mask?

Skipping the second one...  Jan 14, 2008
The royal twins and their strange friend were interesting in the first chapters. Towards the end and after endless battle scenes with swarms of little monkey people, you've learned little more. The finale is so obvious you just don't care enough to see what happens in the next episode. It's too bad because the English translation is masterful.
