Oh! Oh! 8D We got another new character too! Her name is Ichihashi Tsuyu-san! She comes off instantly as... weird! XD She definitely gives you the impression of being waaaaay too odd at first, but she grows on you so fast! I love how friendly and sweet she is! For all her funny, awkward, shy and oddball qualities--and she definitely has a lot! *Laughs*--she is true to who she is always and so honest with herself as well. She's a caring, considerate, and overall lovely person. She's become one of my favorite characters very quickly! And when you see the veeery interesting side she brings out in one of the characters.... *Cackles diabolically* Oh, when you SEE what happens when Tsuyu-san comes into the picture, you are going to be SO intrigued!! >8D At least I know I was! It's INTENSE. And kinda veeery sexy. XD Not to mention she has a GREAT relationship with one of our other characters! 8DDD Seriously! Watching them two together, you can just tell how great a friendship they have! They're so close! It's really a beautiful thing to be able to recognize such a strong bond so quickly, especially when you've just been introduced a brand new character that you've never seen before! Hidaka-sensei's skills continuously astound me. She's a master of relationships and people's interactions! I know it seems like something so little to comment on, but you don't find many mangas that have the same smoothness and feeling of being natural like Banri Hidaka's V.B. Rose.
I don't have much else to say about this volume, so it seems it's going to remain a short review! But if you've been keeping up with my other reviews, you should know quite a bit about my feelings as well! I'll try to continue to give character updates and comment on anything major going on in the plot/story without giving things away! (Which is why this one had to be so short. XD I cannot tell you all the juicy bits! You have to read that for yourself!!!) I can tell you this much though: The story only gets better and better from here on out. And the romance and drama increases to the point where there's awesome at every turn! IT GETS GOOOOD. So if you've had a chance to pick up the series, keep on going! And if you haven't by now, don't let the first couple of volumes dissuade you from trying it out further! It's a rewarding series if you give it the time. <3
