To heck with achingly beautiful, I haven't seen this much awesome in one place since- wait. I HAVEN'T seen this much awesome in one place. ever. This really can't get any better, it already has tits and someone gets set on fire.
Characters pretty darn close to original, despite the madness that spirals out of control around them. Sadly lacking much Chiyo-chan and less sadly lacking in Kags but rest assured there was no eldritch horror that face-ate 'em. Mostly comedy, with beautiful Original Flavour '4-Komas' at the end of each chapter. Still manages, for This Troper, to be achingly beautiful at moments and still sends shivers down my back when I read it.
