    1. I almost took away a star simply because Noriko and Izark are separated in this volume. That said, I put that star back because of the awesomeness that is Gaya Il Bizka.Although a chunk of this volume is taken up by a one shot called "See You Tomorrow" which is set in modern Tokyo about a high school girl which almost made me take away the star that Gaya Il Bizka had earned back but Gaya is, as I noted, just that awesome.And the one shot can be read as an optional because it is just that generic [...]


    2. 3.5 "I can't eraseNoriko's face from my mind." Much shorter because a one shot by the same mangaka was put into this volume.Izark reckons that he must drop off Noriko at a place that he trusts before continuing on with his life. Contrary to what he said earlier, it seems that he now trusts that Noriko won't let it slip that she might be the Awakening, and entrusts her to a friend of his. What follows is a very tear-jerky scene where Noriko thanks Izark for everything but he can't bare to look at [...]


    3. It's obvious in the beginning that this is going to be a romance, but it is nice to see that the person affected first is Izark. When he leaves her with an old friend he can't comprehend his own heart-ache. Izark is such a tormented soul in this series, which I love! This volume reminds me a bit of Fushigi Yugi where Tamahome is imprisoned and is able to communicate with Miaka via telepathy. Here too, Izark and Noriko discover their ability to communicate with each other over long distances. It [...]


    4. “Can you see it. This is the world of light. Everything has become one in light. I entered the world of light and I found you.Do you understand? We are the world of light. This is what we have been searching for. I feel a gentle energy that embraces everything. And this energy can be felt anywhere anytime as long as you open yourself to it”Kanata Kara by Kyoko Hikawa has been my most favorite Shoujo Manga since early 90s till today and I know it will stay as my most favorite for years to com [...]


    5. Welcome to Volume 3 of From Far Away, or as this volume proves, no action does not mean inaction! When last we left our duo the two had left Calco and headedmewhere farther away. Noriko's language difficulties were becoming less of a problem and things seemed to be going well. You know except for Keimos hanging out there somewhere, Lord Rachef hanging out with Keimos out there somewhere, Noriko's possible status as the destroyer of worlds, Izark's unhappiness over her status as a possible destro [...]


    6. I love this manga, so I was bitterly disappointed that almost half of this volume was taken up by some other work by this author - which wasn't even a complete story, but chapter THREE of something. I found this bonus work somewhat confusing and disjointed and it spoiled all the pleasure I'd found in following the story of Noriko and Izark. Noriko is really becoming one of my favorite heroines from the fantasy genre. She's not stupid, she's making the best of the situation, and doesn't spend her [...]



    7. This review will cover volume 3 & 4.After the okay volume two, I can say this series definitely got better with these two volumes. But that doesn't mean there still aren't problems. But first let's take a look at the characters.Noriko and Izark are still likeable. Noriko has grown a little bit as a character and I'm really glad to see that. She's what I would call a damsel in distress done right. She doesn't have to be a fighter to be a good character and she gets more interesting considerin [...]


    8. Picking up the third volume in the From Far Away series I thought I had a pretty good handle on where things were headed. We had a teenage couple set up against some pretty corrupt and evil governmental figures and some sort of magical prophecy bound them together. So I was stunned that within the first five pages Izark left Noriko! Their separation allows them to grow individually as they each go on their own adventures and yet something magical still ties them together. Not to mention that eve [...]


    9. Izark leaves Noriko with "Auntie" in an effort to make life easier for both of them. Despite her best attempts to stay positive, when Auntie's home is attacked, Noriko goes looking for Izark but can't find him. She ends up meeting Agol and his seer daughter Geena. As a middle school student, I didn't like this series all that much: Noriko was too whiny and useless. However, when I reread this as an adult, I appreciated Noriko's shortcomings; now that she's been in the new world for three months, [...]


    10. That was weird. It wasn't totally dedicated to the story of Noriko and Izark but there was also a bonus story which was dull! I still don't like the art by Hikawa-sensei but the plot that's a different matter: it's very interesting. Noriko is your tipical Japanese girl but she has that something that makes her special. She's ready to defend Izark and fight for him. And it's nice, for a change, that the guy is the first to feel special feelings for the girl, who probably doesn't feel the same at [...]
