Once in a while, you'll find that one volume of a series that you really just love. That you keep reading over & over because you just like one or all of the stories in it. For this series, it's volume 8. (So far, anyway.)
This volume has what is quite possibly my favorite story of the series. In order to keep their club room & maybe even get some funding from the school, the members of KCDS attempt to gain new members. The requirements for entry are a little strict, but even so... only about 5 people show any interest in joining. After being insulted & horrified by the club members, most of the new recruits end up running off, except for one very special recruit! The stories after this one are just as good, although they didn't tickle my funny bone like the first story did. There's a story about weddings for the dead as well as a mystery surrounding deceased infants being placed inside a hospital dropbox.
The stories in this volume really do make this my favorite volume of the series. They're all well plotted out & you get a really nice feeling for all of the characters. The artwork is well done in this volume & you can see where it's improved over previous volumes. The only sour note for this volume is knowing that the next volume wasn't quite as good, which isn't this volume's fault at all.
