JUST READ THE FIRST FOUR VOLUMES AND IT HAD BEEN SHOCKINGLY HEARTFELT AND RIVETING. I AM SO INVESTED IN THE STORY AND THE LEAD CHARACTER AND THE BUDDING BOY-LOVE STORY!! I haven't felt this utterly giddy about a manga fantasy adventure since Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden months ago. I will finish the entire series before the year ends and then come up with an official review soon enough!! ABSOLUTELY ENTHRALLING!

and in this volume rakan battles the philosophical evil known as nihilism! WILL HE SUCCEED???

(that's legit what's happening with slightly less punctuation and academic terminology xD)

at the end of this volume sugiura makes apologies for the dudefest this manga is going to turn into (24 guys! and a lizard)

i...foresee a lot of future headcanons revolving around characters who are clearly women crossdressing for reasons

it's going to be a regular monstrous regiment up in here

Rakan and friends jump through the portal into the other dimension and meet up with the Fronteir guard, all the numbered children that have been segregated as "useless" by the prince.

Lovely Rakan/Chigusa interaction, really nice artwork and an intriguing story. Rakan suddenly blurts out that he's the prince's brother. Have his memories started to return?

One criticism is that this series is very character heavy. In the afterward of this volume Shugiura claimes the main characters are 24 guys and
Silver Diamond vol. 4: Granting Purpose is rather short and too much of it is taken up by repetitive conversations, but some important things happen, Chigusa still entertains, the ayame prince gets more (twisted) characterization, and Rakan continues to conquer the people around him with sympathy, hugs, and vegetation. *g*

A little slower than the previous books. Still, the character interactions remain charming, even though there is not nearly enough of the talking snake. (I do love Narushige and Tohji's reactions to Rakan's reactions.) Also, I was amused to see the author apologizing in her note about the cast consisting of 24 men and one reptile.
