I'm not sure how many volumes have been published by Viz yet. I lost track when I left the States last year, but I'd been following faithfully until then, and I've been continuing with the French version (Le Sablier) recently. Since the entire series (ten volumes) has already been published in French, I haven't had to wait for releases. I've been working my way through, and I just finished volume 9.


The main storyline is finished at the end of volume 8 and the last two volumes contain extra material and side stories, and rounds off the storylines of some of the side characters. And I actually liked vol 9 much better than vol 8. I think Ashihara's better with the slice of life type of themes rather than the intense melodrama that built in later volumes. The whole series is kind of melencholic and pensive, but I didn't like it when it got too over the top.

Still one of my favorite series in the past two years.

I started the manga months back but I never continued it even if I found it pretty good. From the sounds of it, it seems worth picking up again lol :D

Read it up to volume 5 and cant find any translations for the rest! Im SOO mad, 'cause I really wanted to finish it. So, I might go buy it. That's probably the only way. Sand Chronicles is a REALLY good manga based on what I read so far. I suggest it to people who didnt read it yet.

I decided to buy this series because a lot of people say this is a lot like Bokura Ga Ita. The characters were wonderfully drawn, it, however, didn't catch my interest like BGI did to me, and still does. For some reason I just don't get why Ann and Daigo had to go through this breakup-get back together-breakup thing. At some point, I'd ask myself, why did they break up again? who break up with who?
I'm currently on book 7, and like BGI, it spanned through years. I was just kind of.... overwhelmed.. I guess by the amount of events that happened in this series. Like this one book alone, we saw how they turned from college years to 26, then Ann met this guy, this guy proposed to her, ex-gf showed up, and BAM! end of engagement.. like what?? what??? it was jumping way way  too fast. It all happened in one volume! and my mind couldn't simply comprehend. One major event in the characters' lives just moved way too fast.

In any case, I'm still reading it. I like it, but am not obsessed about it, nor am I emotionally drawn to it like most of the shoujo manga series I've got for keeps.
