Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The shirt does seem to work, even if the literal shadow still isn't fixed. Brio is not self-destructive, witness fighting the bandits and building the igloo, and is able to return Tamalat's love.

Con: The story suffers from unnecessary infodumps, especially right at at the start.
