Wow. Just got the first three Lament of the Lamb mangas, and I really love the way they're elaborating so much more on the characters' feelings and relationships... this one's a win in my book, even if the art is kinda inconsistent. Some frames are incredible, while in others the characters appear misproportioned or generally odd. That's the only thing that detracts for me, though, and even that doesn't bother me much, since it sort of adds to the artsy feel the same way the lack of color did in Hitsuji no Uta.
I'm honestly not sure, though, whether I like having the stuff out in the open like in the mangas, or more implied like in the OAV. It's hard to decide. What do you think, implicit or explicit, which is better? <---(pitiful attempt to maintain conversation)
