I always meant to link good reviews of the English translation!
Kathy Hassinger reviews Dragon Sword and Wind Child:
“It’s been a long time since I didn’t want a book to end. When I finished reading The Lord of the Rings and all of its appendices I felt like crying. It wasn’t just that the story was over, but because the magical age in the world of the story was ending. The only one who seemed cool with that was my favorite character, Sam Gamgee.
I had the same feeling after finishing Noriko Ogiwara’s Dragon Sword and Wind Child (VIZ Media LLC). I didn’t feel like crying, but I had that same sort of wistful feeling. An age of the world in the story was ending, and even though all of the threads in the story were tied up very neatly, I wanted the story to continue. I wanted to know what happened to the characters after that.”
