From http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ReincarnationRomance: "Shousetsu Bang*Bang has a short comic, 25 lives, about a pair reincarnating again and again. No explanation is given, and there are lifetimes when one kills the other, or one doesn't exist, or they just miss each other."

External Reviews[edit]

This is from the newest issue of the bb_shousetsu, which came out this night, it's the first thing I read from this issue and it's so beautiful. You should all go and read this, right now; seriously! It doesn't take much time, like two minutes, although you might want to reread it several times and then again some more - you don't want to wait and you definitely don't want to miss this. Touching and lovely, and the text is perfect, as are the pictures. Very lyrical, and a bit sad and hopeful... it's going to make your heart ache.
  • pinboard.in: "I don't really know what to say about this, because it kind of transcends words. After I finished reading (which took me a while, since I kept getting distracted by the pretty art and having to go back and start over), I was both speechless and teary-eyed. It's a gorgeous work of fiction, art-wise and prose-wise, and there's so much in it that you really can't help but re-read it over and over."
