That was the end of volume 1 and if you're confused, well, that is expected. Granted, it is 4 volumes long so we should get filled in on many details and all the stuff happening and that has happened, but I checked out a bunch of French reviews of it (from like 2008 when it was released there) and many of them said it was a nonsensical story. However, I'm guessing people just didn't understand it or know what the whole meaning of the story was. Anyway, I've been getting some corrections and help from Ikemen (of Hanebero scans IIRC) which I really do appreciate, so do expect fixes and the like for all the chapters of volume 1 in its release and on mangadex. Enjoy the chapter. Bai bai!
