: To Terra :

To Terra is a GREAT manga series. I thought that as far as manga went, it ended very well and I didn't really have a whole lot of pairing save for Tony/Artella and Blue/Physis. It wasn't something that I actively thought about when I was reading the series.

My favorite character though was Keith Anyan just because his role was very poignant.

Great great series, it's one of those series that has two sides, but you never actively think that one side is wrong over the other, and I think the end was very fitting considering what all my thoughts for it was on.

The thing about the series end that really made it awesome for me was the fact that in the end, their were two computers, one for the mu and the one for humans.    For all of you who cut on the spoilers but who did not read the series, the mu are like mutants :I'm actually pretty sure that mu is short for exactly that:   For the longest time the human super-computer dominated the system, it was a super computer that was specifically biased toward humanity and hence would at any given notice exterminate mu if there was even a bit of a hint that a person was born with such a 'defect'.

In the end, Keith Anyan destroys the giant human-biased super computer and finds the mu-super computer, which wants Keith to activate it to give Mu their fair chance.   But Keith knows that if he activates this computer, it will not cause change, it will only reverse the whole situation.  So to give the world a fair chance, he shuts it down... knowing that if he shuts it down, the planet that both mu and human wanted to take for themselves would return to a death-like slumber.   In the end, that is the only solution.   But really this is just the end, the ride to that end is brilliant..

For any of you who would like to check this series out, as I am aware.. it's not scanlated however there has been a very recent 24 episode anime based on it which I am very interested in checking out now.  [ Towards the Terra anime news network link ]   However the vertical release is VERY nice, for 13 dollars you are getting QUITE a bit of manga, 330 pages approximately.  

For those who are interested in previewing the art, let me just tell you that the series is a 70's shoujo so the art is very much reminiscent of that style.   But you can find previews of each volume HERE at the Vertical-Inc Website.

Gee, another reason why Anime World Order is awesome, if it weren't for them.. I wouldn't of even known that this series existed!

"Beth Dies!" is my spoilerz tag, if you see Beth Dies, bear in mind that you may get spoilered wether you want to or not.  (Anyone who's seen/read Little Women or that awesome episode of Friends will know exactly what it means.. for anyone who hasn't read/seen Little Women.. OMG I AM SO SORRY!)
