    An interesting twist for this volume, I didn t see it coming at all But then again, if we re to consider their ages in this manga, chances are, they d experience having romance in their lives sooner or later anyway Romance is a fickle and unpredictable emotion You never know when it ll strike and you can t be too ready for it, especially when it decides to show without warning This also explains why love knows no boundaries when it comes to interested parties Personally, having huge age dif An interesting twist for this volume, I didn t see it coming at all But then again, if we re to consider their ages in this manga, chances are, they d experience having romance in their lives sooner or later anyway Romance is a fickle and unpredictable emotion You never know when it ll strike and you can t be too ready for it, especially when it decides to show without warning This also explains why love knows no boundaries when it comes to interested parties Personally, having huge age differences doesn t suit my preferences, but if the parties involved are happy at each other s company regardless of this fact, I say, let them be We have no right to rob someone of their happiness, especially if they aren t doing any harm to the people around them, that is Moreover, I m liking this volume a lot, so far Other than because of the different pacing with the story s progression, we re finally given an idea about how it went with some character s past life, specifically with Tohru s friend, Saki Hanajima I used to not give her much thought from the previous volumes since Saki isn t exactly an open book when it comes to showing emotions, making her presence an unpredictable one That is, until now I admire Saki for staying strong and remaining adamant to do her best after getting a glimpse of what her past life is like The mysterious Rin Sohma makes another unexpected arrival, but we still yet have to find out her intentions on the next volumes, probably

    I enjoyed this volumethan I had a few of the previous, possibly because she finally gave the back story on Saki Hanajima, who up until now was a pretty mysterious character She s been a very intriguing character for me, it was nice to actually get an idea for her character A great volume

    I really liked how throughout the book, the author added manycharacters I also liked how we finally got to see what Hanajima s past was like and how she came to be friends with Tohru and Uotani.
