** spoiler alert ** Shinji Mimura is so cool. Seriously, I love this guy even though he seems tougher than he is on the outside. It's all an act, of course. Shinji has his own issues like everyone in the Battle Royale series, and I love him for it!

My favourite part of this volume was with the gay cross-dresser, Sho Tsukioka, first with his colourful back story and then for his obsession with Kiriyama. I love characters who are different and stand out for being so, and Sho is so lovable... even if he is a bit weird and slightly insane (who isn't?).

I actually had trouble getting this volume, I read 1-4 and then read 6-11 before I could get hold of it. I was glad I did, I constantly wondered what had happened to the guy with the huge dimple in his chin. I find his death quite sad, and almost funny if you're a bit psychotic, his story was short, sweet and very colourful.
