"Dragged out beyond belief." by V. Kr├Ątke (Netherlands) on Jan 17, 2006

Let's just say I didn't like the second half of this manga one bit. Volumes one to six told a perfectly adequate cutesy adventure story. After that, things went steadily downhill. Harry Potter's long-lost cousin shows up with two throwaway sidekick characters who then perform acts of completely un-threatening mystical mischief around town. Sakura predictably gets involved every time and vanquishes said mischief, while the tiresome 'mystery' of these new character's true purpose is dragged out at a glacial pace. I found precisely none of this involving, let alone remotely exciting. All through the second arc, we never get the feeling that anything truly worthwhile is at stake, so it's hard to care what happens. This final volume is easily the worst of the lot. First there's the completely anemic final showdown. Once again, nothing serious is at stake and the requisite shocking revelations are trite and predictable at best. This is followed by about half a dozen chapters where nothing whatsoever happens. Sakura and Shaolan spend the entire latter half of this volume fretting about their feelings towards each other. All through the manga, it's been made abundantly clear that they care for each other. And this being a cutesy shoujo tale, it's a foregone conclusion that they will end up happily together. So it is painstakingly dull to read chapter after chapter where all of this is played out as slowly as possible. We know Sakura is a sweet and naive girl and we know she and Shaolan find their feelings for each other rather awkward - it's only been spelled out with absolute clarity for the past ten books, for crying out loud. The manga's entire conclusion could've easily been done in one single chapter instead of dragging it out for multiple chapters. Pity they didn't, as it would've been a far better read that way. The incredibly slow pace of this ending is completely unneccesary.
