    1. Originally posted here at Anime Radius.The Sand Chronicles manga series by Hinako Ashihara has never been a typical title of the shoujo genre. The romance between Ann and Daigo was intertwined with their respective life histories as well as the drama of life in Daigo's sleepy rural town and Ann's city life. Their courtship was troubled and filled with twists and turns and at several points it looked like they were never going to get together at all. But here we are, at the edge of the end of the [...]

    2. The final bonus volume of Sand Chronicles is more like an epilogue than a bonus. It continues the main story. Daigo and Ann are now 30 years old. They're happily married, although I don't think they have kids yet. As the summary states, Daigo digs up a time capsule. This opens up many memories from the past and also many things to teach his students now. Daigo's teacher at age ten was Mrs. Koda. He admired her greatly - worshiped might be a better word. She believed in him and made him believe i [...]

    3. 3.5, SERIES REVIEWI wasn't a huge fan of this when it was running in Shojo Beat, but the magazine was canceled before the characters aged in the series. As a whole, I found the series an interesting human drama.We follow Ann (and her friends of similar ages) from the time she's 12 to the time she's 30 at the end. I'm not a big fan of teenage drama (which the first half of the series is full of), but it does show the characters growing and maturing with each year.Part of the appeal is Ann herself [...]

    4. Meh. Not exactly the way I would have liked the series to end. It is a sort of epilogue to the main story, set just after Daigo and Ann get married. This time, the focus is actually on Daigo, and Ann plays only a minor part in the story. There's not much to say about the story, that feels overly long for what actually happens. I'd say that you could skip this volume entirely and miss nothing but seeing that Fuji does indeed end up with his own happiness.

    6. I love this so much. It's complicated and realistic, and the focus stays solidly on An. This is her story, and while there are some subplots with guy angst, it never takes over and becomes a story about the guy and his angst, like so many shoujo series do. I loved the characterisations here, too. There are strong women and weak women and women who struggle and become stronger over the years. It is also one of the few shoujo series where I was honestly not sure whether or not it would have a typi [...]

    7. Hinako Ashihara's 10th volume of The Sand Chonicles ends with a loud bang. If the Volumes 1-8 focus on Ann, this time, Daigo gets the spotlight. Yes, it is also bildungsroman. Readers will love how Hinako Ashihara highlights a turning point in Daigo's life-- his teacher, Mrs. Koda, inspires him the most to become a teacher and be the most genuine version of himself no matter where life takes him. But everything shatters when (view spoiler)[Daigo finds out that Mrs. Koda has been lying not only t [...]

    8. I loved how the series ended!

    9. I liked seeing the afterwards, and I loved hearing what Daigo thought about the journey.

    10. This series was great and full of feels. It broke my heart a ton of times, but it was worth it. I'd read it again.

    11. see full review @ Katie's CornerRight now, as I’m writing this review it’s the end of December, though I’m sure it will go live either in February or in March. I started reading it back in November during my midterms and because there are only 7 volumes uploaded on mangafox (it’s licensed right now so go to mangahere), I had to wait until Christmas to get the remaining 3. However, the main story ends at vol.8 and the last 2 volumes are bonus stories.I remember I was quite reluctant to st [...]

    12. This is a review for the serie as a whole.I have to say that this was a great manga series. I loved that it wasn't just happy all the time, but it was kind of depressing sometimes, and that's what made it so real. I loved all the characters and all the bonus stories. Particularly in the ninth book, the bonus story that took place thirty years before, it was really interesting.I'm also glad that there was a happy ending, even with all the depressing stuff, all the characters; loose ends were tied [...]

    13. I was waiting for some inspirational message that Daigo left for himself, and what did I get? What did I get?! "Don't Cry!!" Saying I was disappointed would be an understatement. I also don't get how a teacher who was caught in a lie about her estranged husband would victimize her students. Wouldn't she be the victim and possibly anyone who went way above and beyond just being polite for the lie? One lie doesn't and shouldn't discredit a lifetime of good work.

    14. This was a fitting end to a great series. In the world of often bloated, lengthy manga series I found it a breath of fresh air to read a complete, well-developed story within just 10 volumes. The way Ann and Daigo's relationship matures was touching, believable, and showed how both of them had to grow as people over the course of the 10 volumes. And yes, I will admit that the final volume did make me cry. I mean that in a good way, and I am not ashamed to say it.

    15. This is one of the newest manga that I have been really enjoyed. The style of the most "modern" shojo manga hasn't been attracted me that much. However, this story is not focusing on the superficialness of a teenager love story (set eventually in school), but on the deepness on how much tragical (and not) event of our life affect us in all the choices.Also the additional chapters of the story, published on volume

    16. Daigo digs up his old elementary school time capsule, meets one of his former teachers, and thinks about how his own students are growing up. It was interesting to get so much of these bonus chapters from Daigo's perspective, rather than Ann's. A satisfying set of bonus chapters, though these really feel like extras to the main narrative that ended in volume 8.

    17. I love teacher Daigo! This volume made up for any dislike I experienced in previous volumes. I'm choosing to ignore the last picture in Time Capsule 2 which could be interpretted as a run down unhappy Daigo who's taken up smoking (a sure sign things didn't turn out well with Ann). Good to see Fuji happy getting married. Sad Shika's fate is sort of left hanging but what can you do?

    18. A well-written story about life and love from age 12 to age 26. Heartwarming and heart-breaking, it's true to the real thing.The series officially ends after volume 8, but volumes 9 & 10 provide bonus stories including backgrounds of major and side characters, which I think really helps to flesh out the main story as a whole. A lovely read.

    19. I found this volume not as good as the rest of the series. I was really disappointed about the fact that it was so centred around Daigo. I was expecting to see a little bit more about Fuji in this volume (since we saw more of the other characters as adults than him). The two bonus volumes (this one and the ninth) were still kind of good, but we really could have done without them.

    20. This was a lovely epilogue to a well done series. She says this is the end, but I can see her picking up more story lines of these characters. She has the advantage of following characters through lifetimes and generations, unlike most manga.

    21. A nice ending to a great series. I just wished we had gotten more of Fuji's wedding. I liked the time capsule story and most of the short snippets into different characters lives, but I didn't care for the "behind the scenes" panes.

    22. While I didn't really enjoy the 9th volume, I really appreciated this one since it showed Ann and Daigo as adults and focused on Daigo's teaching job, which was really sweet. A cute way to end the series.

    23. The must read last volume. It focuses more on Daigo, his past, and his thoughts on his relationship with Ann. We also get to meet the teacher than inspired him to become a teacher.

    24. How is it possible that I cry EVERY TIME I read a new volume of this manga??????? Maybe it's not Daigo who is the cry baby.Full review to follow

    25. Side stories: Daigo digs up a time capsule, encounters an influential elementary school teacher of his own (very long); Chi is born (very short).

    26. This might be my favorite of the series. I felt I could understand it better than most of the others.

    27. Easily my favorite in the series. I love seeing the different sides of Daigo, and into his past!

    28. I liked all of the books, but some of them made me sad and i felt like at the end everyone was too old. I felt like we don't have enough time. But it's the cutest series ever.

    29. What a good finale, I loved the whole series from the beginning to the end!
