Hijiri annoys me in this volume. Irritation isn't the emotion that I should be feeling. Pity is probably more appropriate. Hijiri has such a low self-esteem. This isn't uncommon in a teenage girl but it manifested itself in so many ways in this volume that I couldn't help roll my eyes.

First Hijiri has a nervous breakdown because there's a new Russian prodigy. Once she sees Lilliana perform, she loses it - she has stress induced hearing loss. She can't imagine performing after someone so good. Th

Lillian surprised me! Her being the real prodigy and all that! I was upset that Masumi went deaf from fear! I can't believe Aoi-san loves Masumi!! I didn't see that one coming!!!

Hijiri Masumi is pushed to her limit when she competes against Russia's finest young ballerinas!

The chance of a lifetime fell into Masumi's lap after her naturally talented friend, Sayoko, injured her ankle. Facing stiff competition from two of the finest Russian dance prodigies, Masumi must represent her entire nation i

I know, I know... 70S MANGA??? How on earth did I stumble onto 70s manga?!?

It was a student, of course. She's way into anime and is a very talented artist in that genre. She enthusiastically lent me the first six volumes, and I (admittedly) put off reading them. After a couple volumes, though, they started to feel like candy! When I found myself poking around for used copies of number 7, I knew I had a problem. I really fell for the art! It always sort of annoyed me before, those huge e

i'm going to say this now, i think that masumi and sergeiev should get together. all of the other boys around her can just be good friends. haha. i think that it's interesting that her "fatal flaw" is never flat out mentioned. when i say interesting, i mean odd and annoying. i thought it was poor form, but then she trained and trained and trained. now, it's musicality? really? she can't feel a beat or portray the music properly? because she also learned how to interpret roles too. so, does she ...more

Not my favorite volume so far. Masumi felt really whiny in this volume. Having already read the next two volumes, I know that it's a step towards her future growth, but it wasn't any easier to get through the multitude of panels where Masumi is crying. At least the spreads of them dancing are as beautiful as always.
