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

Pro: Although the story is very short, the moment when the boy realizes that the three rules aren’t about bandits (they’re about another asteroid strike) is extremely poignant for some reason.

Con: Since it is so very short, there’s little character development and no plot.
