    see full review Katie s CornerRight now, as I m writing this review it s the end of December, though I m sure it will go live either in February or in March I started reading it back in November during my midterms and because there are only 7 volumes uploaded on mangafox it s licensed right now so go to mangahere.co , I had to wait until Christmas to get the remaining 3 However, the main story ends at vol.8 and the last 2 volumes are bonus stories I remember I was quite reluctant to start see full review Katie s CornerRight now, as I m writing this review it s the end of December, though I m sure it will go live either in February or in March I started reading it back in November during my midterms and because there are only 7 volumes uploaded on mangafox it s licensed right now so go to mangahere.co , I had to wait until Christmas to get the remaining 3 However, the main story ends at vol.8 and the last 2 volumes are bonus stories I remember I was quite reluctant to start this manga as I thought it only had 2 chapters, but when I finally scrolled to see the chapters I saw that there were 7 complete volumes I started right away and regretted it immensely I finished it in one day and was sulking for the net 2 weeks because I didn t have all volumes, typical me The story has this weird charm that sucks you in and don t let go The author covers the lives of her heroes from 12 to 16 year old, each chapter is a different timeline and it makes the story so muchfascinating You can clearly say that it is a psychological romance story It s not the relationship between Ann and Daigo that makes you want to read on, though that too, but the psychological aspect of the story The character development, Ann s numerous breakdowns and the break up is just too hard to comprehend All the little things make this story astonishingly realistic and make you wonder what if it was you Or is that I portrayed there I remember when I finally finished the story some part of me felt completed It is not your average romance Every character is broken and rebuilt numerous times and the happy ending is so satisfying The author stresses a lot on the characters and especially on human weaknesses, the tragedies that happen in this story are very real and could make you think about yourself and your surroundingsHowever, in order to understand everything that is happening in this story you ll have to read it You need to witness that fantastic relationship that Ann and Daigo were building, and you have your heart broken numerous times, because, come on, that s like this story captures the life with all its ups and downs Are you ready to experience this life Trust me once you finish you will become addicted to Hinako Ashihara s works, well I surely did, though the next review will not be coming soon as the story is not fully translated and I might have to buy the German volumes to read it to the end But forget about that Sand chronicle is a work that I believe should be read by everyone Enjoy it to its fullest and don t forget to share your thoughts below Stay tuned forreviews as well as promos Don t miss your next favourite book or manga Happy reading XOXO Katie

    This volume is a mixture You have normal teenage antics, love, sadness, anger, betrayal, andThe volume starts of with Fuji s disappearance He hasn t been seen in days, then weeks, then months There s an undercurrent of worry Then you have some innocent, fun playtime when Ann comes home for the holidays The old group of friends get together for Christmas parties and even a failed attempt at dogsledding It s a rare influx of levity and humor into the series.Most of the volume focuses This volume is a mixture You have normal teenage antics, love, sadness, anger, betrayal, andThe volume starts of with Fuji s disappearance He hasn t been seen in days, then weeks, then months There s an undercurrent of worry Then you have some innocent, fun playtime when Ann comes home for the holidays The old group of friends get together for Christmas parties and even a failed attempt at dogsledding It s a rare influx of levity and humor into the series.Most of the volume focuses on Daigo and Ann s relationship It s rocky, as most long distance relationships are Daigo worries about how close Ann and Fuji are Ann realizes just how much Shika likes Daigo But most of all, we see how much Ann relies on Daigo He masks the intense pain she has about her mother s death You re my snow cave Like if there was a blizzardbut I was with you, I d be all right You comfort me I can almost forget all the painful memories These are bittersweet words It s touching how Ann cares for Daigo But the reader also sees just how damaged she is Daigo is merely a stopper in bottle that s about to explode.As the volume continues, we seecracks in the windshield Fuji returns Ann tries to save him, but he ends up helping her as much as she does him Thetime they spend together, thetroubled her relationship with Daigo becomes Daigo is jealous of Fuji But Daigo also is scared and perhaps angry about Ann s fragility They fightandIt feels like their relationship is on a downward spiral.One of the coolest thing about this manga series is the Glossary at the end of each volume It not only defines words, but gives cultural tidbits For example, it explains the origin of warm, canned coffee from Japanese vending machines Or it explains how certain phrases were translated Some things, like jokes or proverbs, are significantly different when translated because a literal translation would make no sense

    The way I see the fourth volume of Sand Chronicles by Miss Hinako Ashihara is like a ladder As the characters climb higher, the steps behind them disintegrate Ann, Daigo, Fuji, and Shika are farther from where they were before Their lives are moving forward, but the past seems to haunt them down Sand Chronicles is full of emotions, and readers can hear each characters heart without reading what they say From their actions to their facial expressions, they say everything But for readers to The way I see the fourth volume of Sand Chronicles by Miss Hinako Ashihara is like a ladder As the characters climb higher, the steps behind them disintegrate Ann, Daigo, Fuji, and Shika are farther from where they were before Their lives are moving forward, but the past seems to haunt them down Sand Chronicles is full of emotions, and readers can hear each characters heart without reading what they say From their actions to their facial expressions, they say everything But for readers to hear them, they must open their hearts and let Miss Hinako Ashihara take them on a journey I saw the ending of this installment, but as I headed towards the last page, a side of me had hoped that it wouldn t end that way But again, fate is cruel

    This first part had me cracking up It was so funny The second half wasserious and it ended kind of sad.

    There s a lot going on in this one, but it s not my favorite so far The ending was pretty okay, but the rest of the in between was just heartbreaking.

    When I began reading manga which was only two months ago , I never expected to read something that was truly touching I thought it would all be fun and cute This series changes my mind completely about the type of manga I like Sure, I enjoy reading funny manga like Special A or cute manga like Fruits Basket, but I enjoy reading manga with a realistic story line and deeper meaning muchIt s just better that way That s what this series was for me and I can only hope I ll findlike When I began reading manga which was only two months ago , I never expected to read something that was truly touching I thought it would all be fun and cute This series changes my mind completely about the type of manga I like Sure, I enjoy reading funny manga like Special A or cute manga like Fruits Basket, but I enjoy reading manga with a realistic story line and deeper meaning muchIt s just better that way That s what this series was for me and I can only hope I ll findlike it.The artwork is a little muddier than I like I mpartial to defined drawing, rather than the scratchy drawing so often found in shoujo manga I think it s meant to give adreamy quality, but I just find it a bit on the annoying side Since I liked this series so much, I m willing to put that complaint aside.The character development in this series is just unreal I didn t think manga was capable of that kind of thing I couldn t have beenwrong in that assumption Ann s development throughout the series is heartbreaking and incredibly realistic, considering her age She goes through so many of the screw ups and indecision that comes with being a girl in her teens or early twenties I felt that I could relate to her throughout most of the series because I have gone through a lot of the same things Daigo has a tendency to be a littlehard headed, but it definitely themature of the two He makes no secret of his complete devotion to Ann, even when she s too messed up to realize what s in front of her He s unwavering and therefore astatic character However, this doesn t hurt the series, as it is about Ann growing up, not Daigo The situation Fuji and Shika find themselves in is a littledramatic They too are developing characters and both do a lot of growing up Their search for their true identities is one that gives the series a bitintrigue They both learn a lot they didn t know about themselves along the way.This is certainly the best written manga I ve come across If you re into manga, or are thinking of trying it out I highly recommend this series It s definitely girly shoujo manga, but it s got a great story
