And to top it off she is completely obliterated by an injured and vengeful Laika for causing Jig’s insanity and death and the Dragon clan for killing her parents]].

* CutShort: Due to its lack of popularity in its host magazine, the series was axed in favour of ''Manga/IllegalRare''. As a result, ''Stealth'''s plot rushed to a climax at Chapter 16, and concludes after merely 4 chapters.
