It is up to her to stop Shell and his evil gang.
The first novel was published in Japan in May 2003, with the final novel published on September 8, 2010. The novels were later made into a manga series, a now cancelled OVA anime series and an anime film trilogy.
Viz Media licensed the novels and published all three into one novel. Kodansha Comics USA publishes the manga series in English, and Sentai Filmworks will release anime films on DVD and Blu-ray.-
