The Review!
[B]Audio[/B]
I've watched this disc in both English and Japanese languages. The Japanese language is excellent, voices fit the characters, the soundtrack is great and fits the mood. While the English language has improved a lot since the beginning, but some characters still didn't seem to give much emotion in certain parts where it was really needed. Also the soundtrack on the dub still seemed to be a little lower than in the Japanese language.

The animation is really nice, and has improved quite a bit since the beginning.

[B]Packaging[/B]
A great cover for the discs. It has Lum Cheng with Mana on the front, whie the reverse cover has Yuki with Toru on it.

[B]Extras[/B]
Other than trailers and Karaoke videos for the opening and ending songs, there is nothing. The only reason I gave this release a C on extras is because of the mini comic that comes with this release.

Cool, but confusing.

[B]Content (Contains SPOILERS)[/B]
This volume makes this series excellent!! Starts out with Roy and Katsumi at dinner, moves on to him asking her to marry him, and then Ganossa interfers and Katsumi runs away. She is captured, and Ganossa sends a Lucifer Hawk out to kill him. The AMP save him, and Ganossa lets Katsumi go, for a moment, then captures both her and Roy. Roy is given a test to save her, which he does. While he is recovering from his wounds, him and Katsumi make haha with each other, and while she is in the shower, Ganossa shows up and ends it all. Katsumi starts to cry and the entire building blows up.

The next episode is 6 months later, and no one has seen Katsumi, and the sponsors are about to dismantle AMP. Yuki hosting a party, and Katsumi returns, but all is not as it seems. Katsumi is now with Ganossa under the power of the Demon Sword Medium, Rally is now the new owner of the police dept, and all hell breaks loose. It is discovered that the only way to break Medium's spell is for a loved one to sacrifice themselves to Medium, which Kiddy plans on doing. Soon everything is restored, and the AMP heads out for the Final Battle in 2030.

While the actual ending leaves things hanging a bit, what was to be accomplished was, and ends this great series. This vol has brought out the best in the series, and was really worth the wait. I highly recommend this series, and feel that it is very underated and missed by a lot of anime fans who don't know much about it. If you love destruction, action, comedy, chaos, and anything else good, even romance, then this is a definite series to pick up.
