My Thoughts: I can't believe it's the end. I don't want it to be the end. Why does it have to be the end!?!?
This Volume was very fast. I think, but don't quote me, that it was shorter than all the other previous Volumes, and that's always a troubling sign for me. I want the last Volume to be the thickest of them all. I want the characters' last adventure to be big and epic, and comfort me as we go on one final journey together.
I'm very sad that I Hate Fairyland is over for the simple fact that I love it. This series is so fun, so violent, so colorful. I love the art style. It's just a good time to read. And its sense of humor throughout the whole series has been spot on.
This ending, I don't think it satisfied me completely. I felt like the humor wasn't as prevalent in this final Volume. And Gert, Poor Poor Gert, the way her story ended was just kind of depressing.
I'm going to miss I Hate Fairyland so much.
