I really enjoyed the concept behind this story. I love the idea of a relaxed, older Sousuke who has time to fish and reflect on his life. The young assassin who can do great damage, but really doesn't want to and the man bound by the rules he lives by as he tries to make the world a better place are all part of the series, but the older one appeals to me most. It gives the character a happy ending, essentially. I liked the winding of the song throughout and appreciate the separation of the original and translation. I don't know if I would've appreciated the song element if it wasn't a foreign tune that I have no relationship to? As it is, it works well and ties it all together. Well done.

I love "Full Metal Panic" and this is just wonderful! I really enjoyed it. I like how things change, but the lessons remain as true now as they ever were. A great reflection on a life of challenges and eventual resolution--a sign of hope for the young boy, too.
