From start to finish, Riceboy cannot be treated like almost anything you will have ever read before. Oh, there will be questions that will be answered... but a thousand rise in their place even as the plot sweeps you along too fast to really care.
Over the course of this webcomic, I found myself laughing, wondering, and crying bitter tears. I loved these characters, and believed in what they were doing. When you read something and wish, with with all of your being that their lives could have been, somehow, better... that is a truly great story.
