I'm not sure if there are already threads like this here but anyway, since we're down to the last chapter, I think it's time to make a list of the things we love about GB. I'll go first

* Ban and Ginji - these characters are very well developed. I'm not really sure how to put it, but the two of them together is perfection. They compliment each other very well. Ban's wit and Ginji's softness plus Ban's softness over Ginji, I love everything about that.

* The science, myths, fantasy, politics and emotional substance - I think those are the reasons why I'm drawn to Aoki/Tadashi Agi's writing style. It's informative, obviously done with research. Although GB is mostly supernatural, there are explanations that will connect them to reality, like the electric eel in Ginji's power, the ancient Myth for Ban's, the animal DNA stuff for Shido etc. The details in the author's storytelling are beautiful and brilliant.

* The illustration - I love Ayamine's artwork. Ban, Ginji, Akabane, Himiko, Kagami, Kazuki, you'll recognize them in a crowd of other anime/manga characters. I think Aoki and Ayamine are like Ban and Ginji, they compliment each other very much which is why GB is one of the finest fiction I read. I hope they'll work together again, maybe they can continue Oniwaka to Ushiwaka, or do another project in similar genre.

Well these three are the things I love the most but I love pretty much everything about GB. It's sad that we're close to the last chapter but I'm glad it's wrapped up in a way that's not just decent, but beautiful. I hope the one shot side story will be scanlated too, if we're not asking too much Smiley
