The anime stops halfway through the manga and has its own self-contained ending. But I'm very interested in reading the manga (and I don't read manga either actually). I figured that the manga would be better because it has far more time to develop the characters, get the reader attached to them, and increase the feels. Is there anywhere online that has an English translation of the manga? Sadly, I don't read Japanese, and the manga was never licensed for a published English translation.
