really liked it
bookshelves: manga

I had fears that with Sai's departure, the series would continue on a path of inevitable decline. That fear seemed to have been justified in this volume with a tangent to the story with a side plot involving Izumi's training in China. However, all my fears were set aside once the story seemed to make use of Sai's absence with some strong drama over the aftereffects and Hikaru's reaction to this new change in his life. With Hikaru alone, this volume brings up the important question of "What is Hikaru's motivation with Go with Sai no longer around?" The answer we get at the end was particularly pleasing.
