Es wird echt immer besser. Ja es kommen immer mehr Personen dazu, aber es wird trotzdem nicht unübersichtlich. Sehr gut <3

Dani - Perspective of a Writer
I'm not sure I like how caught up in politics Aoba is. He seems to allow his political desires to effect how he treats Sakura and I'm just not a fan of that. The togu plays important role in helping these two as a couple and I'm loving Enju and Kai and how they are interfering and influencing the situation.

The side characters really are stellar in this and despite not being a total fan of the political side of the story am liking the back history we are being shown as we learn more about Sakura'

Synopsis:

Sakura, still grieving Oumi’s death, must fight the powerful youko of Uji. But she finds herself no match for the demon’s poisonous vapor. It’s time for Kohaku and Hayate—with a little help from the full moon—to step in.

My Thoughts:

Things take a bit of a turn here. Sakura isn't the only one from the moon around. At least she and Aoba are honest about their feelings now, but it seems even that was just a manipulation. Aoba doesn't seem to know anything about it, but Fujimurasaki does. Wh

Der dritte Band der Reihe von Arina Tanemura schließt ebenso wie der Vorgänger nahtlos mittem im Geschehen an der Geschichte an.
Die Spannung beim Lesen wird erhöht und das Tempo der Erzählung gesteigert. Das ist ganz gut, da es sich sonst zu sehr ziehen würde. Auch merkt man bei unserer Protagonistin die ersten Charakterentwicklungen und das ist gut zu sehen.

Die Hintergründe zum Geschehen werden nach und nach enthüllt, wobei noch vieles im Verborgenen bleibt. Es gibt ja auch noch ein paar Bände

More of a 3.5 than a 3, but not enough to round it up. It feels like Sakura Hime is finally finding is footing plotwise. It helps that we've dealt a huge character revelation that gives the series some serious depth, although some might see it as out of nowhere (and it pretty much was). Although one thing I'd ask is that we as readers see more of Sakura as this strong, independent, confident woman instead of other characters telling us she is. Also, less contrived romantic obstacles - but knowin ...more

Read in: January 2013, June 2013

The main arc of this series begins in this volume. We meet Enju and he quickly becomes our villain. However, by the end of this volume, we find out who he really is and how he became insane. This is where the story really takes off and we meet even more opponents that will challenge our favorite characters. At the end of this volume, Enju and Sakura fly away to the moon. When I first read this volume, I had given it 3 stars, but I'm upping it to 4.

This volume was super boring up until the last chapter! I already had figured out this twist before it was presented, but even so, I still got a little excited about it!

Now I am really pumped to see what happens next! I hope it keeps getting more intense and less lovey... this volume was too full of lovey dovey BS (I get it, it's a shojo... but there was a lot more depth to it the first two volumes)

Actual rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

There was one big plot twist this volume (view spoiler), so we pretty much just have a central romance and a one-sided love triangle.

I'm definitely enjoying this series so far.

I think this is the volume where the story really begins. The story is starting to become more focused and less "Here's one problem lets fix it,here's another problem lets fix it!!" and more "this is what we have to do".

Enjoyed this one as well LOOOVE the plot twist so much. I mean I was expecting it but the backstory of this character(!!) only thinking about it makes me tear up my precious little child
This one was cheesy in some parts but gladly was saved by Tanemuras awesome comic relief!

Zusammenfassung:
Eine spannende Wende der Geschichte, die einen mit einem riesigen Cliffhangar zurücklässt. Humorvoll und leidenschaftlich, wie eh und je. Top!
