MARS volume 10


Today's post is on MARS volume 10 by Fuyumi Soryo. As it is the 10th in the series you need to have read the first 9 to understand the story. It is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Kira and Rei on it looking pretty. The intended reader is young adult, likes teen drama, and more drama. There is sex, some mild language, and violence in this volume. The story is told from Kira's perspective. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of book- Free at Last
Now that Rei and Kira are an 'official' couple, Kira experiences a refreshing taste of freedom for the first time in her life. But soon, she and Rei find themselves at one of life's major crossroads. The two must decide how school and work will play into their future. Kira deiced to take a job in order to secure her independence, while Rei contemplates quitting school so he can support Kira. Just when you think you have your future all mapped out, love enters the picture and changes the scenery.

Review- Kira and Rei have sex in this volume. It is not graphic but it is very clear what they are doing. Kira is forced to interact with the real world. She does get scared but she deals with it. Rei does help but it is Kira who chooses. The character development in this volume is more relationship development. Because they are living together now Kira and Rei have to deal with some things that neither could have guessed was coming. Rei's father is still trying to get in touch with him. Kira of course is worried that Rei is ashamed of her or something like that. That is something that I wish would get dealt with but ten volumes in and Kira still thinks that like. But I still really enjoy in this series. But that said she is much better than she was at the beginning of the series. True love and all that. All the drama is good for your heart.

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