This volume is much happier than the last few have been. The twins convince Haine not to kill herself, that they would be lonely without her. Haine's mother, Maika, awakes from the stupor she's been living in and tells her husband that she loves him, not Itsuka. And Haine discovers her father doesn't hate her; in fact, he thought he was setting her free by sending her to live with her real father. He was afraid of breaking her spirit like he thought he did her mother's. Haine is out of the gang ...more
Alright a good volume because it's mostly getting closer to the end. I like Arina Tanemura, but she's just taking so long with this series, and she's doing it on purpose. I know she wants a longer series, but it's driving me insane not knowing who Haine will choose: Shizumasa or Takanari. I hope Takanari because he is the one who wrote the picture book she loved. And also Shizumasa is making Takanari stand in for him, which what will happen after he no longer needs him. It's all just so unfair. ...more
[Ch. 36-40:]

This volume was pretty good. You learn some stuff about Haine's parents (both sets). I loved that. It was also nice to know that even though Kazuhito basically stole Maika away from Itsuki, she was just beginning to fall in love with him before Kazuhito made her Platinum. And I love how loyal Itsuki is to his wife when Kazuhito gave him an opportunity to get Maika back.

I really liked Takanari and Haine in the last chapter of this volume. And YES, finally she makes her decision!
was a little disappointed, but am glad the series didn't end here as some rumors suggested. i thought takanari took the backseat a little too much at this point in the "haine arch", but it was understandable. but, i have a bais towards them getting together over shisumasa.

Finally have all the characters memorized so I can understand the plotline fully. Love the artwork and all the twists and turns.

This is the last "real book" I have from this series. I'll be reading V10 and V11 as scanslations.
I can't believe this series has been going on for 9 whole books!!! I need closure!
Haine's parent's love story is so adorable :)
love this manga series!
Happy and interesting
