    Five stars... did you expect anything less? Especially in this volume? Man... this volume was very, very, VERY hard to get through. It was extremely sad... you wouldn't think it because of the cover but it's true! The cover is a bit misleading. (Don't get me wrong. I love Momiji! He's so adorable but with what happens within the volume... yeah... you'll be like, "How can something so horrible be inside something so cute!?") It's THAT depressing. Sure, it has a great ending... BUT THAT DOESN'T MA

    Five stars... did you expect anything less? Especially in this volume? Man... this volume was very, very, VERY hard to get through. It was extremely sad... you wouldn't think it because of the cover but it's true! The cover is a bit misleading. (Don't get me wrong. I love Momiji! He's so adorable but with what happens within the volume... yeah... you'll be like, "How can something so horrible be inside something so cute!?") It's THAT depressing. Sure, it has a great ending... BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT ANY LESS SAD! ESPECIALLY IF YOU LOVE KYO AS MUCH AS I DO! YOU'LL BE CRYING YOUR EYES OUT! *Blubbers*

    Oh, Takaya-sensei... why do you do this to me? I love these characters so much and you make me cry by making them go through crap! It hurts me so bad... why? WHY!? You love seeing me crack, don't you!? *GASPS!* I knew it! You do! >_< In all honesty, she did a real good job in this volume. The suspense was killer! The sadness was overwhelming. And the love... *Sighs* ...the love was beautiful. Oh, my... I don't even know what to say... I'm still shaking from everything that took place in this manga. And to think that it's only going to get more hurtful from here. It's good but at the same time, it's bad! I don't want to keep crying! My eyes already hurt from all the tears I've shed in this volume! How can I take anymore? Not to say it was completely sad. Takaya-sensei did an excellent job in ending the book in a nice positive note. It was a very light and fluffy feeling which was nice considering how awful everything else was. For that, I thank you, Takaya-sensei. (Your talks of video games really helped me out as well!)

    If you had any negative thoughts towards Tohru (and I have no idea why you would) then this volume will change your mind about her. She really was shining brightly in this book. She did what no one would ever do. Ever. Because people suck that way. She did something so wonderful that... that... if I was a guy, I'd want to go out with her... hell, I'd still go out with her! But Kyo would kill me if I did that so... no. Tohru was so kind to Kyo and understanding. God! It's so rare to find people who just understands now-a-days! She is amazing. Your heart will fall for her because of what she did. I cannot stress that enough! As you can see, Kyo went through... something dreadful... it was really hard reading through those parts. His pain... is so deep... it's as if it's happening to you. Reading it... it IS happening to you... Man... I can't even write about it because I'm already starting to choke up. My poor Kyo. *Squeezes him*

    I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the way Yuki and Kagura acted towards what happened to Kyo. I know they don't have ill will towards him but... I don't know. It leaves me feeling... yucky. Kagura... I don't know what to think about her yet but Yuki... blah! Then again, I never really liked Yuki that much. He seems to look down on a lot of people. I know I'm supposed to sympathize with him but... eh. I don't hate him but... it's that arrogance that gets to me sometimes... plus, he's a wimp. Personally... I would love it if my brother was a pain like that... on second thought... never mind. HOW IS AYAME THE SNAKE!? I JUST WILL NEVER GET OVER THAT! >_< I love Ayame. He's so much fun. He doesn't care what people think of him and for that, he earns my respect. There's a new character introduced! (I know... there's a lot of them! XD) Kazuma, or Shishou, is Kyo's martial arts master and the best daddy anyone could ever ask for! I am sooooo in love with him it's not even funny. I love how much he cares for Kyo! It's wonderful! Speaking of characters I love, Haru and Hatori makes a cameo. And so does Momiji and Shigure but they weren't in this volume as much. I can say that the small screen time Hatori appears in is so funny that you don't care if he wasn't there for most of the book. <3

    Okay, so this one is going to leave you with a broken heart, red eyes, and a runny nose but it's worth it! I promise you that! If only to see how much more the characters grow and to see the relationships finally take off in the right direction! Yeah... it's going to hurt as hell, especially if you've come to love these characters to death... but... it's okay. Not everything in life is fluffy... the same thing goes for manga. Or anything really. Trust me. This series just keeps getting better and better with each passing volume. And from here? Well, only better. Please, don't take my word for it. Go and check it out yourself. You will not be disappointed. Besides, don't you just love hot guys in dresses? Or cute girls in dresses? Or hot guys and cute girls getting it on? Okay... so that last part doesn't happen but damn it! IT BETTER SOON!!! *Flails* GO READ IT NOW!

    When this volume started out I thought, "Yes! This is what I want to learn about!!"

    Then the rest of the volume happened.

    I was so invested in finding out about Kyo's "

    " that I completely forgot that there was a whole

    of the volume that I still needed to read, but in all honesty it should've just ended at the part where Kyo decides on wanting to go back to Kazuma's to train.

    In the beginning, Kazuma makes a surprise visit and he unleashes Kyo's "true form". When this happened, I was both stunned and confused because it was really fascinating and cool but it was also very confusing too. As a character, it made Kyo more interesting and it also opened my eyes to a better understanding of him. Now I know why he doesn't like people getting close to him. He's afraid of caring for someone because he (as well as they) would end up getting hurt if they found out. It's also a bit confusing because I'm not sure how it works. Why does he transform into that form? Because he's the cat? I know that the cat is cursed apart from the rest of the zodiac, but I never realized it was this bad. And yes, it's cool in a sense, but I just don't get it.

    However, whether it made sense or not it was still a very touching and emotional scene. I absolutely love how this series can muster all that emotion. It's truly beautiful.

    After all that nice and beautiful drama we are

    thrust into the real world where Ayame is still trying to win over the love of his brother and Kagura is still chasing Kyo like a maniac. Honestly, I think this book could've done without the useless nonsense. I wish Ayame could be a

    bit more serious, but I suppose that would be too out of character for him (and it probably isn't possible for him).

    Aside from all that I will finish the series (might as well since I've gotten this far). And I really like the characters as well. Even though I've noticed that Tohru is a bit of a Mary-Sue. Oh well, what can you do?

    Another fun read, it was good getting to know more about Kyo and his past. His relationship with his sensai/adopted dad was really sweet and cute as well. I really wish Kyo would wake up to his feelings about Tohru though, it was so obvious he had a huge crush on her.

    WARNING; SPOILERS, (Not itty-bitty ones, but BIG ones!)

    As Kyou is in a horrible mood, (blamed on the rain), his beloved Shishou appeared to visit Kyou, (his master who trained him in the mountains etc.)

    Shockingly, Shishou was talking to Kyou, (and was getting into a little bit of personal details), and Kyou transformed into an unbelievable beast, (with Tohru standing behind him.)

    That whole scene kind of came out of nowhere, because although there were soft touches of hints every once in a while

    Shockingly, Shishou was talking to Kyou, (and was getting into a little bit of personal details), and Kyou transformed into an unbelievable beast, (with Tohru standing behind him.)

    That whole scene kind of came out of nowhere, because although there were soft touches of hints every once in a while, but this was this first time someone came out directly with information for the reader about: "Kyou's original/real form." I was slightly confused, because its like: "How did an adorable cat/human become a cat/human/creature...?"

    I'm slightly surprised that Tohru ran away though, because she has such a kind personality I would imagine her to know that this 'thing' was really her friend Kyou. Being honest, I would have covered my nose because if the smell was as bad as described, I definitely covered my nose, but I wouldn't have run away, (if they were my friend).

    This manga also got into the topic of Yuki, (with his relationship with Ayame), and he is making multiple scenes flirting with Tohru, (or in other words sounding like a total creeper.)

    For example, Tohru and Yuki were on the stairs, and Yuki said something like: "If you don't like that, just keep in mind that I'll kidnap you." And then smiled sweetly. :/

    WHAT. THE. HECK.

    I'm also slightly mystified that no other 'Yuki fangirls' haven't had another 'Get rid of the Witch Tohru' mission. Yuki is TOTALLY crushing on Tohru, and he's not keeping it a secret, (except Tohru is absolutely oblivious to this, and just acts awkward.)

    Well, as I continue to fangirl over everyone, let us see where this 'new' Kyou, and newly found brotherly relationship between Yuki and Ayame will lead us......

    Well that was... weird. Things took a really strange turn, way different from the rest of the story so far, and it was GREAT! Loved it. Then everything just kind of went back to normal. This is such a strange series!

    5/5 stars

    And in this volume, we saw the HUGE revalation about a character... The anime had more heartbreaking scenes and I preferred it more than the manga in this case but how can you not love both? Also, Ayame's shop...This person is so weird xD

    I really liked the fact that this issue focused more on the relationship and backstory of Yuki and Kyo. It explains a lot as to why they behave the way they do and why they have some insecurities. As always, there were moments that were really funny and helped to lighten the mood.

    I almost cried! :'( so sad and beautiful. Damn you wonderful, perfect book.

    The backstory and character development we see here for Kyo is absolutely brilliant. Seriously. No fucking wonder this poor boy is always so angry! :'(

    & the last chapter or so with Yuki and his older brother? Also perfect.

    This book is this weirdly perfect mix of absolutely heartbreaking, hilarity, and Sweetness. I'd absolutely recommend it to fans of manga, romance, and urban fantasy.

    My only complaint is kagura. I

    My only complaint is kagura. I think that she's supposed to be funny. But really, I just see her as an abusive dick with no sense of boundaries.

    Other than that? Wonderful. This is definitely my favorite volume to date. :)
