    1. Takemiya Keiko has a knack for making sci-fi accessible to non-sci-fi fans. The first volume of Andromeda Stories adequately injects intrigue and introduces plot points without giving much away. The classic manga art style (given that it's from the early 80s) is a nice change up from today's current art trends.The only fault I give to this first volume is Vertical's translation. The dialogue is really clunky, as if they did direct translation rather than trying to make it make sense in English. [...]


    2. There's definitely something old-school about the style, but it doesn't really matter. The story is pretty straight forward sci-fi/fantasy type stuff and if it weren't for the clever execution of dialogue and pacing, this book might fall a bit short.Thankfully though, it doesn't. At times the language took me by surprise (amidst the high-fantasy illustrations, one character tells another to 'chill'), but it's actually quite entertaining. I never associate words like 'dude' with this sort of worl [...]


    3. While interesting, the story does not age well. Likely serialised originally, the lack of separating chapters don't lend well to a collected volume. Scene shifts are abrupt, and major jumps in the timeline of the story are poorly represented. I picked up volumes 1 and 2, so will definitely keep reading, but things have to improve greatly in the next volume for me to be a completist and round out the set.


    4. Takemiya's illustrations are incredibly beautiful and despite the story being a bit preachy and weepy at times I really enjoyed it.
