As this volume begins, Yuki's term as Student Council President begins while Tohru - having now seen firsthand what Akito is capable of and determined to free her friends from the Zodiac curse - secretly turns to Kyo's Shishou for advice. But the real meat of the volume involves Yuki and Kyo, who each find out secrets about someone close to them.
Although he has never loved Kagura, she is still important to Kyo, having been his only real childhood friend. In this volume they finally hash out their relationship in a surprisingly serious and emotionally draining conversation in which Kagura reveals with startling bluntness the reason why she's forced herself on Kyo for so long.
Yuki, meanwhile, visits Rin in an attempt to play matchmaker and repay Haru for always having his back. Their conversation takes a wild turn, however, when Rin changes the subject - and Yuki learns the truth about a critical moment in his life when she reveals that it was Haru - and not Shigure as he'd always been lead to believe - who saved him from his miserable existence in Sohma House.
Another fine volume with some great character development.
Let me tell you...I don't mean to spoil the story... Yuki, Kyo, Shigure and Tohru went back to the house from vacation. (Oh man, Kyo and Yuki gotta TALLER! Whoa!) Kyo wanted to be with Tohru until the end of his life. Tohru made a call to Kazuma which Kyo's father..err foster father!? She wanted to talk with him about how to break the curse. Tohru thought she was really selfish, but she really wanted to break a curse. Kagura realized why she pushed herself to Kyo and it called force love. But she does love him. She told Kyo everything and Kyo didn't say 'I am sorry;, just say thank you. Kyo was only the one friend to Kagura. Kyo never "like" Kagura. Kagura remembered when she saw Kyo's true form, she just ran away. In volume 6, Kagura watched Tohru ran after Kyo when he was true form. That made Kagura realized how she was stupid because of running from Kyo. Anyway, Kyo was just now single and wanted to be with Tohru and love her a lot. Of course, Tohru didn't know...YeT!? Hmm at school, the parent-teacher conferences, Tohru's grandfather couldn't go there because he had thrown his back. (I think.) So instead of, Shigure would go to her grandfather's place for parent-teacher conferences. Shigure wanted to see how Tohru's teacher's face when she sees Shigure. Between them, it was so funny. Um in the end page, Saki liked Kazuma when she saw him walked with Kyo to parent-teacher conference. Kyo shouted that he don't want to her be his mom. Hahaha! ^^ I hope you don't mind that I told you too much...ehh...
