    This series is one of the best ones I've read in a long while. I went into it only knowing that I liked the art style, and knew nothing of what the story was about. Being able to watch Ann, Daigo, Fuji and Shika grow over a 14 year period was really rewarding in a way. This volume brought the series to a close with volumes 9 and 10 being collections of short stories. There were a lot of twists and turns during the two or three volumes leading to this, that I had no idea how it was going to end. This series is one of the best ones I've read in a long while.

And because the story has you watch these characters grow from 11/12 years old to 25/26, it is almost impossible to put down. Ashihara has you cheering for Ann right until the bitter end. >,<

I have lost respect for her by this point, because she really has NOT made any effort to move on, instead plunging on this fatalistic path toward disaster, too weak to stand up to it. I love the art. The even loved the beginning of the series. But this jumping along with huge gaps in the years with absolutely no character growth on the part of anybody has left me irritated and kind of wishing i I give up. I just give up.

She doesn't seem upset about this in particular, but it rekindled all the pain and insecurity that she's been hiding from for years. She's on a train traveling to Nima to see the giant hourglass she visited with her mother so many years ago. On the way she stops in Okayama, the city where Daigo teaches. She goes to the playground of his school on a whim and hears from a student that Daigo is getting married soon. When Ann gets to Nima, she discovers that the hourglass museum is closed! Poor Ann...nothing goes right for her. She goes to a nearby beach, devastated that she can't visit the museum but mostly devastated about life in general. She finds some broken glass and slits her wrist. When she nearly passes out from the blood loss, she realizes that she doesn't want to die and cause everyone so much pain...but it's too late. Ann wakes up in the hospital. She was saved at the last moment. As awful as it was, the suicide attempt is good for Ann. It's the impetus she needs to find her internal strength. She returns to life, determined to get back to normal and be strong. And she does much better. But Daigo's always there. They meet again when Ann travels back to Shimane. Ann is different with him. She congratulates him on his upcoming marriage. She's happy for him. Able to move on. Daigo says there's not going to be a marriage. It was just a rumor. Instead, Daigo wants to get back with Ann. Now it's Ann who says it'll never work. Daigo tells her it can and all Ann needs to do is make Daigo happy. The shoe is on the other foot now...it's Daigo who will rely on Ann. Daigo says that just by being there, Ann makes him happy. And they live happily ever after. I'm doing a horrible job of summarizing this scene. I'll just say that it's incredibly touching and beautiful. It made me teary even on a second read. I'm sad to see the formal story of Sand Chronicles end. Even though it's overdramatic, it's a fabulous realistic fiction story. The characters are well-developed and the love story is timeless. I highly recommend it.

    When I began reading manga (which was only two months ago), I never expected to read something that was truly touching. I thought it would all be fun and cute. This series changes my mind completely about the type of manga I like. Sure, I enjoy reading funny manga like Special A or cute manga like Fruits Basket, but I enjoy reading manga with a realistic story line and deeper meaning much more. It’s just better that way. That’s what this series was for me and I can only hope I’ll find more like When I began reading manga (which was only two months ago), I never expected to read something that was truly touching.

That’s what this series was for me and I can only hope I’ll find more like it. The artwork is a little muddier than I like. I’m more partial to defined drawing, rather than the scratchy drawing so often found in shoujo manga. I think it’s meant to give a more dreamy quality, but I just find it a bit on the annoying side. Since I liked this series so much, I’m willing to put that complaint aside. The character development in this series is just unreal. I didn’t think manga was capable of that kind of thing. I couldn’t have been more wrong in that assumption. Ann’s development throughout the series is heartbreaking and incredibly realistic, considering her age. She goes through so many of the screw-ups and indecision that comes with being a girl in her teens or early twenties. I felt that I could relate to her throughout most of the series because I have gone through a lot of the same things. Daigo has a tendency to be a little more hard-headed, but it definitely the more mature of the two. He makes no secret of his complete devotion to Ann, even when she’s too messed up to realize what’s in front of her. He’s unwavering and therefore a more static character. However, this doesn’t hurt the series, as it is about Ann growing up, not Daigo. The situation Fuji and Shika find themselves in is a little more dramatic. They too are developing characters and both do a lot of growing up. Their search for their true identities is one that gives the series a bit more intrigue. They both learn a lot they didn’t know about themselves along the way. This is certainly the best written manga I’ve come across. If you’re into manga, or are thinking of trying it out I highly recommend this series. It’s definitely girly shoujo manga, but it’s got a great story.

    It seems that this was the real end of Sand Chronicles, and that the last two volumes are bonus stories. At least there's a note at the end that says as much. I loved the series as a whole for being a sweet romance with realistic complications. I also liked that it took an unusual (for the genre) length of time to unwind. Ann is 12 when the series starts, and 26 when it ends, and the characters feel age appropriate nearly every step of the way.

    This is where Ann's story ends, so this is where I'm going to do my review. The rest of the books are about Ann's mother, and while interesting, at the same time I don't take it as the main plot. Ann's story is depressing. It's a great way to tell a story, but it was just dark and *spoiler* The happy ending felt really forced. They haven't seen each other in 6 years, but they're like, "Yeah, let's get back together." It would have been better if she learned she could live her life without him, or This is where Ann's story ends, so this is where I'm going to do my review.

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.co), I had to wait until Christmas to get the remaining 3.

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.co), 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 start this manga as I thought it only had 2 chapters, but when I finally scrolled to see the chapters I saw that there were 7 complete volumes. I started right away and regretted it immensely. I finished it in one day and was sulking for the net 2 weeks because I didn’t have all volumes, typical me. The story has this weird charm that sucks you in and don’t let go. The author covers the lives of her heroes from 12 to 16 year old, each chapter is a different timeline and it makes the story so much more fascinating. You can clearly say that it is a psychological romance story. It’s not the relationship between Ann and Daigo that makes you want to read on, though that too, but the psychological aspect of the story. The character development, Ann’s numerous breakdowns and the break-up is just too hard to comprehend. All the little things make this story astonishingly realistic and make you wonder what if it was you? Or is that I portrayed there? I remember when I finally finished the story some part of me felt completed. It is not your average romance. Every character is broken and rebuilt numerous times and the happy ending is so satisfying. The author stresses a lot on the characters and especially on human weaknesses, the tragedies that happen in this story are very real and could make you think about yourself and your surroundings more. However, in order to understand everything that is happening in this story you’ll have to read it. You need to witness that fantastic relationship that Ann and Daigo were building, and you have your heart broken numerous times, because, come on, that’s like this story captures the life with all its ups and downs. Are you ready to experience this life? Trust me once you finish you will become addicted to Hinako Ashihara’s works, well I surely did, though the next review will not be coming soon as the story is not fully translated and I might have to buy the German volumes to read it to the end. But forget about that! Sand chronicle is a work that I believe should be read by everyone. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading! XOXO Katie

    I might continue on to read the bonus/extra volumes in the future, but for now this is it. The end of a really great story. Although the characters weren't my favourite, and the story faltered in many places, overall I think it was a beautiful story of a girl comes to find peace over 14 years after her mothers suicide. I think I have a weakness for stories with great lessons and I've found that the Japanese in particular have s great grasp on crafting a tale to teach us this lesson.

I think I have a weakness for stories with great lessons and I've found that the Japanese in particular have s great grasp on crafting a tale to teach us this lesson. Ann struggles with the guilt, solitude, anger and loneliness after her mother takes her own life when she's 12. She feels like she played a role in her death, telling her to work harder and harder and feels like she herself wasn't a good enough reason to stay for. Ann finds companionship and love in a boy named Daigo and he promises to stay by her side forever. This factor keeps Ann going for years, but over time Ann's guilt, etc starts taking on a greater presence in Ann's life and she herself begins to feel depressed. Daigo is the one that always seems to pull her out of it, but she starts to feel like a burden to him and struggles with this. She wants him to be happy, but isn't sure she's the one who can give him that and breaks it off. Her depression rises over the years as she struggles without him to pull her back from that abyss and she eventually tries to kill herself. But Ann remembers the sadness her mother caused when she took her own life and starts to fight to live. Of course she ends up living and Daigo and her finally get together now that she is no longer haunted by the past. It may be a bit cheesy and predictable, but it touched my heart. And the use of sand as a metaphor for time and the hourglass made it even more beautiful. The last line "The sand still flows" was simple but beautifully put, summing up the story of the sand chronicles in the perfect way.

    While there are 10 volumes in this series, this volume 8 is the last volume of the main story. Apparently volumes 9 and 10 contain side stories.

What makes this manga series unique is that it deals with a heroine who seems to be struggling with depression, though it's never called that. The series begins when 12-year-old Ann moves with her mother to her maternal grandparents' house in the country because her father is having financial troubles back in Tokyo. However, they're not there long before her mother commits suicide. Ann forms a bond with a local boy that quickly becomes a romance that's on and off throughout the series. The story makes leaps between episodes, sometimes jumping ahead a season or two, sometimes several years, so the story covers Ann's life in middle school, high school, college, and as a young working woman. The breadth of time covered also sets this series apart. Overall, the series was just okay to me. I think it could have been better if the characters' actions were more true to who they were or had more motivation beyond needing a dramatic moment, or a means to sustain the conflict.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A very strong ending to one of my favorite shojo series ever. I was glad that Ann and Daigo's ultimate reunion was presented as an epilogue, rather than as the resolution to Ann's story: it's right and fitting that Ann's story concludes when she comes to term with herself and her past. I still rather wish Ashihara had skipped that particular epilogue, though; it wouldn't have been a very popular storytelling move, I suspect, but it would have been a brave one.

Like Ann, at the end of the book, I found myself really wishing for all of these characters' happiness. And I think that says volumes about how much Ashihara draws her readers into her stories. I'm looking forward to the final two volumes of side stories, and really interested in seeing what Ashihara does next with her career.

    Since this is sort-of the last volume (9 and 10 are apparently just side stories that fit into the previous 8 volumes), I will admit that I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and even when it got to be over-the-top I didn't really mind. The ending is what I was hoping for (and I'm hoping more details will be filled in in volumes 9 and 10), but I am mildly annoyed that Fuji's story line is just kind of left hanging.

    This is the final volume for the main story, or so the last page says. I liked Ann's revelation early on, and the interactions with coworkers. The ending, however, seemed rushed. I would have liked to at least see a bit more about what happened during that big time skip they put in. I don't think the ending was strong enough for everything that happened in this series. Maybe the bonus stories will help wrap things up... This is the final volume for the main story, or so the last page says. I liked Ann's revelation early on, and the interactions with coworkers.
