Gee, I guess I like Seiji now? This day will go down in history. I’m just saying. Not that I’m implying my opinion is important enough for its shift to be recorded in history or whatever. Just—shhh.

TBH, I might still be inclined to hate him for being so good and yet ruining it with his attitude (no, I don’t mean his prickliness or cutting words cause those are things I usually stan, I mean his lack of respect for anyone and anything who is not Jesse), BUT—

Awww okay I might f

Okay, I’m going to be honest with you (as always. ;-P) and this issue just wasn’t all that awesome for me. I mean yes, I get it, it was necessary to understand what it means that Seji is no.2 in the fencing ranking but there happened nothing except of his match against Harvard and that just wasn’t enough for me. >_<

I need more substance than that! I mean why was there so little of Nicholas? Why were there no interactions between other students? And what is this thing between Aiden and Harvard!?
4 Stars

No one understands it yet. But they will.

In what is basically a Seiji-centric issue, we get a deeper look at this highly skilled and largely disliked fencing prodigy.

It is quite an epic little moment, as anti-social freshman Seiji effortlessly plays and defeats fencing team captain and senior student Harvard.

I love the turning of the tide as everyone begins to see just how special Seiji truly is.

They’re beginning to understand...just how good Seiji is.

This was probably my favou
"(...) Seiji sees something in Nicholas that will change his opinion forever."

Yeah, he sees how gay he is for him.

Were they trying to bait me with the synopsis? Because they sure did.

and the saga progresses...

honestly, i just feel for seiji... he seems so brooding and lonely and sad.

i mean he's definitely not friendly but i have a feeling he's sad inside.

also, I'm starting to get a little bored....

it's just the same thing happening over and over again. hopefully things get a little more exciting

Nicholas: “I don’t need a makeover I have amazing fashion sense.”
Bobby: “wearing black jeans and a black tank top all the time?”
N: “I wear other things”
B: “like what?”
N: “sometimes I wear a black t-shirt”

This was all serious fencing and mind games and all Seiji. Something strange though, the episode synopsis doesn’t fit what you get.

Aiden and Harvard have my whole heart! And I don’t know if Seiji and Nicholas are leading to a relationship or just a great friendship but I cannot wait to see what happens.

"His talent is isolating. It sets him apart. It probably has his whole life."

Getting this much exposition on Seiji was just what I needed.

As coach says it's a little hard to really understand just how good Seiji is if you don't really understand Fencing but once you do... man, he's good. He has passion, discipline, talent and the years of training to be as good as he is right now he just needs to relax a bit more, enjoy it more, and he'll be unstoppable.

I continue to admire the coach and

I really shouldn't read two of these back to back.....It makes the second one go by much too fast!

Seiji and Harvard face-off. Nicholas keeps taunting Seiji.

Great as always!

This series is just getting better and better. I liked the insight we got into Seiji and how his talent can be isolating and how people see him. I hope some day Nick will have a balance in how he sees him. Nick is still hilariously cute in this.

Also I'm feeling more and more between Aiden and Harvard...I'll be disappointed if nothing happens between these two. Also I love Harvard, he was a gracious loser to Seiji and was kind and he's so sweet.

Still great

Welp, I inhaled that like air. Harvard's still a beautiful and kind angel and Seiji's a thorny rose, all is well

But damn, this was nothing if not a personal chapter all about Senji. It felt short (like they always do internally sobs) and not much happened, so I had to drag it down a star, but the knowledge and art were spot on.

can't. wait. for. next. one. slowly. dying. that. freaking. cliffhanger. though.

SO VERY IMPRESSED BY SEIJI!! I was like all the other students, not understanding what it means for him to be ranked #2. Now I get it! He's f****** olympic and no one at Kings Row stands a chance against him, and they all know after watching this bout. And then there’s Nicholas who doesn’t seem impressed in any way and I don’t know whether I should laugh, frown or shake my head because of his reaction! ...

Taking another moment to look at Harvard. Seriously, didn’t the students get what huge pres
