The tryouts are finally over! I'm so happy for all the fencers who made the team, but especially for Nicolas and Seiji. Now it's all about training and becoming best friends. Ok, I actually hope for more than best friends, but I know it will be a long road for our two main characters. I'm going to be happy if in the next volume we get to take down that duck curtain in their room.
Can't wait to read more!!

Apparently I’m trash for sports stories now?

I used up 4 of 12 of my borrows from hoopla for this and it was so worth it, those were some of the cutest scenes I’ve ever seen

Wish it was longer

Grace (Lost girl of neverland)
Another wonderful entry into this series. The best one yet in my opinion, so much drama, so much tension.

We really get to explore more about how much Nicholas looks up to and seeks Seiji’s approval. There’s a mutual respect they hold for each other but don’t want to admit it to the other. They’re no longer enemies, more begrudgingly friends. I just love how slow burn it is, there dynamic is everything.

I also loved learning more about the characters Eugene and Aiden. They’re given some more backs

Of course Nicholas gets on the team. Really, what did I expect? The story is far from over, though, with the real competition coming up.

Nicholas and Seiji's match goes in Seiji's favor, but Nicholas also gets a point, which is something nobody expected. The two of them are the only ones wo don't have family rooting for them during the tryouts, so Nicholas declares Seiji his friend, to the latter's dismay.

This story is getting better and better! I’m loving the mc and side characters so much, and the story is quite heartwarming as well
Read as separate issues since vol. 3 isn’t out yet.
I’m soooo obsessed with this series (so much so that I read issues #1-12 in one sitting lol) and I usually hate stories about sports, but this one is just so good. Cannot WAIT until the next issue because THAT CLIFFHANGER

Can Seiji and Nicholas just get together already because I love them and I need them together right about now. I just can't wait to see how their stories end.
Loved once more all the characters and the friendship between them... It just keeps getting better and better... and this cliffhanger.?! Now the waiting begins...

This series just keeps getting better and better! But that cliffhanger though... I'm not sure how I'll make it until the next issue is released.
1. I'm so proud of Nicholas!
2. Eugene is such a great person and I can't wait to learn more about him.
3. I am living for the relationship between Aiden and Harvard. The last scene between the two of them melted my heart. My heart aches for Aiden, and while he isn't always the greatest person, I can't help but adore him.
4. I love the relationship th

This is the problem with comics, they're awfully short and if they're incomplete just God knows when you'll get another volume :(
I loved this story and this characters. Give me more, please :(
UGHHHHH I regret over reading issues 9-12 ... I should have waited because now I'm DYING.

So cute though and amazing. Love this series so far.

Nicholas Cox is the illegitimate son of a U.S. Olympian fencer, who wants to prove himself to be similarly talented on the floor as his father and his half-brother. Lacking proper training but full of speed and passion, he tries out for the Kings Row fencing team. In addition, to maintain his scholarship he needs to live and work with fencing prodigy Seiji Katayama.

I picked up these comics by C.S. Pacat and Johanna the Mad because I loved the Captive Prince trilogy. Only 3 volumes, collecting 12

Whoops, read the last issue of this one back in November and forgot to mark it read. I really just want to re-read all three volumes back to back. Issue by issue, not fun.

You have to love an underdog story, especially one with realism. This does well by the fan of a good character while keeping us sprinkled with tidbits and clues to uncover. Will we see more about Nicholas’ family and how will that impact him? Will his friendship with superstar, and arrogant, Seiji grow into something more? Will Harvard and Aiden get together? Can we have more Bobby?

I’m probably not going to get an epee and learn to fence, but I enjoyed learning about it and can see the artistry
