This Month's Afterschool Charisma

is a real 'wham chapter' Who is a clone, and who isn't? And there's the whole view that clones are replaceable, which always bothers me. I mean, no matter how genetically similar the clones are to the historically personages..their different environments would certainly make them different people. The manga itself makes this point subtly- notice that Napoleon is much taller than his original, probably due to better nutrition.

Sadly, the mystery of why Pandora is so large is not explained. Marie Curie disappeared in volume 1- less than a year ago, but Pandora looks 3 or 4. I really like Freud in this chapter, and Mozart's interaction with Joan of Arc is beautifully delineated.

I'll certainly see them next month.
