Read in July, 2009

A volume of down-period stories from an arc where Samura was clearly setting up the next phases in life for Manji, Rin and Anotsu. Manji spends almost all of this volume healing in bed; Rin just walks along, hungry.

Only Anotsu's story is particularly interesting, as he reaches the dojo he is to inherit and finds the students set against him and the master with a curious demand before he take over the school. It was teased before, but here Anotsu has clearly risen to protagonist status, with a sympathetic aim and real momentum behind his brutal cause.

His scenes are the most rounded, helping expand his character and role. One scene sees him duel with a student, the art style changing radically into what is almost flip book of his maneuvers. Another scene sees him sit quietly with his potential wife, someone he hadn't met until yesterday.
