27 Volumes; I just finished it recently. It's got a bit of a violent ending, but also sweet and funny. Take the time to read this if you can.

I love this series. It was the first Manga that I truly fell in love with, and lived up to the expectation I had for the potential of the genre. Hiromu Arakawa is an amazing artist, and her skill really shows how much an expert hand at the drawing board can add to a manga series. Her story-telling is exceptional as well, so you don’t have to face the disappointment of a manga artist who can spin a good tale but can’t really manage the art, or the fabulous artist who’s got no story to tell that’s worth hearing. The characters are unique and vividly drawn, both as images and as personalities. I find inspiration in the details, so one of the big things I noticed was that she takes the time to really create amazingly individual faces, even for the minor characters. Often in the manga scene you’ll find that the artist draws the exact same face for everyone and only gets individual when it comes to hair. Humph! She also impressed me with how well she manages to dramatize the face as a three-dimensional object. Not many can really manage that so the fact that she does is really amazing. Anyway, read this series, you won’t regret it.
