The journey comes to an end.
I was going to delay this a bit more compared to the other series because of the infamous BONES original ending thing going on and since the final episode’s air date was close to the release date of Volume 11, I wanted to wait out for spoilers before I tackled the anime series in general.

Then this series showed up.
Plus I seriously regret not covering this.
