This volume... Ugh, this volume, the ending, is so mean. I'm not happy about it.
First, though, the beginning of the volume had the conclusion to the Princess Yuri plot line, which was a bit anticlimactic, and not nearly as exciting or intense or violent as I had been expecting. I'm not going to spoil Yuri's reasoning behind what she was doing to Aoba and Sakura, but the whole thing seemed to have started from something small that was blown out of proportion, and then Yuri does this thing to do with Fujimurasaki, and I just didn't really care much for Yuri anymore at that point. I'm kind of done with her.
Although, I am a tiny bit confused. Aoba was being forced into having a concubine, and the elders chose Yuri, but I don't think it was cleared up as to whether or not he's still going to have to choose another one? Maybe I missed that part, but it didn't seem like the only option was Yuri, and like it would have to be someone. I mean, Aoba did work it out with Sakura, the whole being forced into it and how he really only wants her, but after that thing happened with Yuri, it just seemed to all be ignored. So...?
Anyway, then there are a couple of chapters focused on Aoba and Sakura. Because he won't stay the night with her (only to sleep, nothing else), and she gets upset and curious, and ends up finding this thing out about him. I'm not going to spoil it, but it was a bit sad, and gave the opportunity for some very sweet scenes between the two. I don't really see why he wanted to keep it a secret, why he was so worried, given the similarities between him and their friends, but at the same time I do kind of understand.Read more ›
And a lot of the characters look the same so it's hard to distinguish them at times. (They all look like the same characters from Gentleman's Alliance!)
Can't wait for the next volume though.
