Kago and his dogs are funny! This dogs seems really likeable and friendly. I normally don’t like dogs, but when they are happy like this, I can tolerate them.
Sekka’s situation — he seems pretty much resigned that his own life isn’t worth him living, but at least for now he’s thinking about helping somebody else instead of being a 100% self-absorbed depressive navel gazer. I hope now that he’s agree to being possessed that some part of his consciousness remains present so he can experience “life”.
Looking Ahead: I’ve peeked ahead to the next few chapters and, of course, Kiyariko’s regret has to do with unresolved feelings for a teacher. Boo!!! This is, of course, complicated because Sekka and teacher are male (let the hilarity and misunderstandings ensue…). It looks as though the story line is handled with care, so although I hate this kind of plot line, I’m willing to give Fujieda-sensei the chance to play it through.
Speaking of Fujieda Toru, I’m reading her other series “Dragon Girl”. It’s about a girl, Rinna, who wants to follow in her father’s footsteps by joining a cheering squad at a specific school. The first volume isn’t all that spectacular, but once the drama gets started, it’s quite compelling. It’s available from Yen Press in two omnibus collections. Here are links to get more information about the books and to make a purchases.
Dragon Girl Omnibus 1 (Volumes 1 – 3)
Dragon Girl Omnibus 2 (Volume 4 – 6)
Both omnibus collections are currently on sale through Amazon.
Next up is the one-shot “3 Hearts” followed by our Halloween in May surprise one-shot “Twelve O’clock Bell Rings”. After that is the long awaited resumption of “Junketsu + Kareshi”.
