In this series’ rousing finish, the heroine Ruliya searches the seas of Marmundo on her orca for her lost squire. The island wild child Ashika has been abducted by the mechanical mastermind Alcantara. Now, this brilliant but bi-polar inventor seeks to reveal the secrets of the Light Orb, which he stole from Ashika’s late father, the lighthouse keeper Lord Arrabarus.

Befriending Alcantara’s loyal servant, Zykey, Ashika learns that his kidnapper’s past is bursting with adversity and adventure. A boy genius, the alchemist Alcantara has dedicated his life to find the cure to the dreaded nihil disease that killed his mother and threatens the life of Zykey herself. But now Ruliya has found him for a final duel. Nevertheless, the power of the Orb is mysterious, drawing foe and friend alike to a cataclysmic conclusion.

In a more off-the-wall style than his previous work, Yukito Kishiro concocts a mesmerizing world replete with tall tales and fantastic voyages. In homage to his famed creation Battle Angel Alita, he highlights how the power of imagination may fuel the spirit and fabricate meaning. By introducing so many interesting elements, the story leaves enough loose ends to mislead readers into pining for sequels. But in the end, this is what comics are all about: full of fun, fantasy, and feeling.
