My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this volume. The race is on and are hero and heroine are in for survival. It sure isn't easy, either. From the start, I was suspicious of the Blue King. He just seemed way too over the top. It all makes sense later on in the volume. I had suspected it and I was definitely right. I wonder if Ageha knew? How does he always show up wherever Sarasa is?

This manga is so stunning! I'm totally enthralled in this story! I can't remember the last time I read a story this complicated and unique. The action is great, the plot twists are complete surprises, yet still believable within the story - its quickly become a new favorite! If you haven't read it, you really should go find it and start reading now!
I'm not sure about this one. I mean, I never really liked the drawings at all, and the characters are annoying me. I'm probably not going to read anything else from Tamura.

The plot takes a more romantic turn in vol. 5 of Basara. It's still dealing with serious issues though.
