Did anyone else like this book when they were young but when they look back at it they realize how messed up and disgustingly sexist it is? Because I liked it before, but now when I think of this series, I just get angrier and angrier. It'd be one thing if thing if the author created a sexist villain and we realized this is the case, but what makes me angry is 1. the world that the author creates whose characters and practices are complicit with the villain's sexist acts and 2. that we're suppos ...more

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

This one was pretty cute. I know there's two more volumes and I'm not sure what's included, but this one had an "epilogue." If they chose to end the main story here, it's pretty good.

Another good volume.

I actually shed tears during this volume. The ending was very touching.

It was nice to get the backstory of Haine's birth parents. And even while it would all be sad for her, I have to just assume that she's bipolar. There really is no other way I can describe her as a character when she has two extreme sides of her and can easily switch between the two. That her multiple personalities.

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

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.

This is the last "real book" I have from this series. I'll be reading V10 and V11 as scanslations.
