MARS volume 6


Today post is on MARS volume 6 by Fuyumi Soryo. Is the sixth in the series and was published by Tokyopop. The cover has Kira on it. The intended reader is young adult but all the drama adults can enjoy this too. There is no sex, some mild language, and some violence in this volume. The story is told from Kira's perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Tales from the Dark Side.
Kira and Rei are definitely in love- but no one said love was easy. When a new guy enrolls in their school, he instantly develops a big crush on both Rei and Kira. (Gulp!) To make matters worse, it turns out that this mysterious stranger is actually a face from Rei's violent past. Slowly, Kira begins to discover Rei's darker side, but she's not so sure she likes what she sees. As scandalous stories and shocking secrets are revealed, Kira hopes beyond hope that their love will be able to conquer all.

Review- This volume is about Rei's recent past just after his brother's death and again we have to put Kira aside. We knew that Rei had lost his mind in grief and rage after Sei's death but we get to see what some of that looked like. The new character is very creepy and how Rei reacts to him is even more so. But Kira being a whole-hearted believer in people, she can see past all that. She helps Rei remember who he really is. That is what this volume is really about Kira helping Rei get back to who he really is. I do wish that we had gotten more of what is really going on with Kira but they have very little alone time because of the new stalker. More drama in general and about the stalker next time!

I give this manga a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
