I want to take them home!!Jan. 11 2012
- Published on Amazon.com
This is gearing up to be a pretty intriguing arc in the series, so I'll warn people: there's a big reveal in this volume as well as a bit of foreshadowing for the future. There's still a long ways to go, but there's enough here to whet your appetite for the here and now.
I couldn't help but feel sorry for Rena and for what she felt she'd been forced to resort to. I've always felt that she was one of the more likable characters in the series and many of her issues are ones that just about everyone can relate to, such as losing a parent to infidelity and having to deal with the other parent moving on. I think that's what makes her such a tragic figure in this arc, second only to the torment that Satoko had to go through in her particular arc. (Only one character's experiences can beat that, but I won't post those spoilers here.)
The artwork in this is still great, especially the colorful splash pages at the beginning. As Rina would say, "I want to take it home with me!"
