    It was definitely original. I didn't like the illustrations as well as most (they're good, just not really the style I like), but the cover is definitely eye-catching. Overall, not a remarkable disappointment, but not a series I would continue reading. Overall, I guess it just didn't appeal to me, but I do know some people that would like this, so I will be giving my copy to one of them. It was definitely original.

    YES! More Princess Ai! Our favorite characters are back with a reprisal of music from the first arc and brand new songs. More spots by Nora and his evil dad who plots to overthrow Ai. Beware the danger Princess! You rock!

    Ai is back for a new trilogy. At the end of the previous book Ai had regained her memories, discovered the extent of her powers and was poised to return to Ai-land. What would become of the Second Revolution? Would the dougen be liberated? Would the tenketsu harvesting in T.R.A.P. be shut down? Would her father King Sei be defeated? What would happen to renegade angel Kaz who tried to have her killed? The book begins. "Ai-land. One year since the revolution ended." Ohh . . . The Princess Ai manga Ai is back for a new trilogy. At the end of the previous book Ai had regained her memories, discovered the extent of her powers and was poised to return to Ai-land. What would become of the Second Revolution? Would the dougen be liberated? Would the tenketsu harvesting in T.R.A.P. be shut down? Would her father King Sei be defeated? What would happen to renegade angel Kaz who tried to have her killed? The book begins. "Ai-land. One year since the revolution ended." Ohh . . . The Princess Ai manga has always had a delicate balancing act to follow between the frothier relationship and music plotlines, and the enslavement of the dougen. Clearly the former plotlines are popular, and Kent and Ai certainly have some sweet moments, but the series' refusal to delve into the serious issues it raises in favour of Ai performing at yet another concert are starting to come across as lazy. One year later and most of the questions raised at the end of the last book are pretty much . . . okay. The Second Revolution? Went fine. The dougen? Fully integrated into society. TRAP? Shut down. (There's apparently an energy crisis but not so bad that the new king is seen to do anything about it.) King Sei? Who even knows where he is. Kaz? Who cares if he tried to have Ai killed, no need for him to go on trial. Of course, these might be delved into in later volumes, and some are brought up towards the end of this book to a certain extent, but for now we're back with Ai in the castle. True to her form in the last trilogy she's complaing again about how she can't do what she wants to, but this time the gilded cage is the Ai-land palace rather than at HTA, with Nora holding the keys. You may remember Nora from the last series as the angel who transported Ai to earth, who it was pretty clearly implied was in a relationship with Ai, what with the declarations of love and the kissing. PoMD pulls a Star Wars on us as it now turns out that they're half siblings and the kiss is never brought up again. Try not to think about it too much. The writers clearly didn't. Ai is bummed because she's in a writing slump, feeling like a figurehead instead of an ruler. Rather than be interested in learning anything about Ai-land the best thing to do is have a concert which is simultaneously screened on earth. When Sir Edwin See, who set up the link to earth, is kidnapped, Ai and the furies travel back to earth to investigate. The mystery isn't of any great note, as barring a mention at the end of volume 3 Sir Edwin is kidnapped as soon as he is introduced so its hard to se why Ai would risk so much to rescue him. Of greater interest is the return of Kent. I may have preferred the plot to focus on the goings on in Ai-land but there is undoubtedly a sweetness to a lot of Kent and Ai's interactions that at least make her more enjoyable to read. In Ai's absence Kent has picked up a pretty heavy handed drug abuse metaphor, and whilst it's not remotely subtle there are still scenes that manage to be quite affecting.

    It's been an entire year since Princess Ai left Earth to bring an end to the Second Revolution on Ai-Land. All was peaceful, except for in Ai's heart and those that she left behind on Earth. "How could she expect him to live a normal life... after being with her?" Ai descends back to Earth on a mission only to find that H.T.A., her former record producing company, has been corrupted and is poisoning the minds of all those that listen to their music.

    I was a bit disappointed by the start of this series. It's missing the spark the original trilogy had. Maybe it's because it's a sequel that they felt like it could start out on such a dark note. It picked up a bit as the volume progressed, but the beginning felt like a slog. It's just interesting enough for me to check out the next volume (so long as the library has it), so I suppose I'll give it a try. I was a bit disappointed by the start of this series.
