    1. I love the style of the art in this.I'm not really one for sci-fi, but I thoroughly enjoyed these stories, the concepts, the characters, and the building and destruction of relationships. I like that the manga touched on some issues and topics that aren't usually focused on, such as intersexuality, ethical standards in experimentation, cloning, etc. There are some things about the book that made me uncomfortable, but for the most part I believe that was intentional on the part of the author. One [...]

    2. This is an amazing work of art and literature. I had stumbled upon this comic by mistake and I am so glad I did. The idea of a "unicorn race" is beautiful and Hagio Moto (I got used to calling her this) created three spectacular stories with an amazing outer space world. I just cannot express my love for this comic and Hagio Moto. I REALLY wish I owned a hard copy myself. After reading this, I just had to check out other works by her and read Marginal and The Heart of Thomas (which are both real [...]

    3. Bright 5 stars for the first short story (manga), which is titled A, A'. It asks the fundamental questions of identity and love. Why do I love you, not others? What makes you you? And what is love anyway? (view spoiler)[For the last question, it offers a poetic answer: I want to tell you my memory that I've never shared . . . (hide spoiler)]Proves science fiction can be for women by women.

    4. One of my all time favorite volumes of manga! Sci-fi with some very interesting plots that aren't like most other sci-fi I've read. I especially love Moto Hagio's explorations of gender.

    5. "Unicorns" are genetically-altered humans. They were created in order to enhance logical abilities and remove emotions from the equation. The result was a new, frail species with a streak of red hair that struggle in their dealings with unaltered humans. With this concept as a backdrop, Hagio Moto's A, A' explores far-ranging concepts from cloning to hermaphroditism, all with her unique touch that turns science fiction into shoujo manga and vice versa.The first of the three short stories in this [...]

    6. Not a fan of sci-fi but I greatly enjoyed Hagio's take on the genre. Thought provoking, funny, A,A is a volume I would read again. You cannot go wrong with a story that has a race of genetically modified humans called unicorns. If you don't think unicorns, in any form, are the shit, you are probably a little dead inside. ;( So maybe you should read this book! ;)

    7. Clones and trannies, lovely artwork, interesting take on a possible future. This is an amazing comic for the rare folks who manage to find it (took me a year or two).
