M³ - Memorable Manga Moments: Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne

This week's is a submission from our first brave volunteer - Mina Murray =D>

She wrote in about her favorite scenes in Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne. They were some great scenes, and without giving away too much of the story, I chose one climatic moment that expresses the essence of the story's meaning. In this scene Maron is having to fight against a past version of herself in order to win an important battle. She has come to realize through loving another person, that being emotional does not make you a weak person, but it makes you stronger. Now knowing this, she is able to overcome her past self by admitting her weakness.

Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Volume 7, Chapter 30

Mina said it is memorable to her because, "the (character) development shown in the last chapters is presented with an incredible heart warmth that will make the reader like Maron - determined and honest, sappy and glad. Accepting and knowing yourself is the key to being happy, isn't it?.... All in all, it just says look positive at life, the solution will arrive as long as you keep on searching for it."

I have to agree! That's a great overall message that I've seen Tanemura incorporate in several of her stories. (I'll have to add this story to my TBR pile after I finish Shinshi Doumei Cross!) Thanks for writing in, Mina, and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else out there wants to submit, too. The next one could be yours!
