And at the risk of sounding redundant, Seven Seas did a good job with the book overall. Seriously, I'm just repeating myself now. Good translation, good composition. It's a nice volume I'm going to take care to make sure it stays in good shape for a long, long time.
By the way, pay close attention to Akane Taiyo. His character development is especially important to this part of the series, but that's not really what I mean. Mizukami pulls a very deft narrative trick with Akane, starting back in volume 6 but carried most strongly forward here in 7 and 8. Akane and Yuuhi are very similar people at different points in life, and their similarities and differences let them borrow from each other's character development for themselves, even while having their own solid story arcs. It's a very slick move that helps get a lot of extra mileage out of a limited page count.
I'll never recapture that first time, reading it as it came out, but I am so pleased that it's finally got a physical English release. I've exposed so many other people to this treasure because of that. I get to grant them that first read-through.
If you hadn't guessed, this is my favorite manga of all time. While not everyone will share that opinion, I reckon most folks will at least recognize it as something special.
