This was an incredibly confusing read. The story switches between points of view with little warning, and I am still trying to figure out how the main character fits into it all. I am intrigued and may pick up the next one, however.

This manga was a bit confusing since they jump around to different character and have random stuff happen, and also use code words. I have the light novel on order so maybe that will clear it up.
