I admit I came a little slow to getting my hands on it -- I haven't made time to read for a long while.
Managed to start on my copy yesterday, unsure of what to expect, but certainly not an ending that was going to make me tear.
Perhaps I had held it back each time I went through The Wake, but the only other time was while reading Hikaru no Go Vol15, when Sai was gone.
Oh well, it's silly I know, feel free to laugh. But it surprised me how much sadness came over me at the ending, I don't think it was supposed to be like that. Not really.
Anyway, it's a good book, and deserves an entry just for it alone. :3
