Junkie Monkeys: I first began reading the English release of Ikigami: The Ultimate Limit back in 2009. What began as back to back releases soon became yearly waits for a single volume. Ikigami ended it’s original run back in 2012, but US readers have had to wait longer. Eagerly awaiting for a new volume to reach the states each year has been no easy task. I’m relieved and a bit sad to say that I’ve finally crossed the finish line of this series. After wrapping up vol. 10 last night, I can say with confidence that the final chapter in this emotionally draining series is absolutely perfect.
