First if of all, I must say Naked Ape does some of the loveliest cover and title page art out there. I’m always excited when they have color pages. I really wish they would release a Magnolia calendar. I really like the colors on this illustration. The composition really brings out the green of Ayato’s eyes.
We continue with the tea party in this chapter. A warning to Hugo haters: you are going to want to put your fist through your monitor before the end of this chapter. Hugo is especially dog-like…well, more like a male slut. He’s a terrible guy to fall for and I feel bad for Ayato. But…it’s not like they’re going out, so I guess Hugo can do as he pleases. But still…seriously? I guess this kind of behavior is what makes Hugo is a delicious character. It’s amazing how he acts like he doesn’t know why Ayato’s upset. Ugh… it makes me want to start a rant on men.
