Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 7


Today's post is on Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 7 by Masami Tsuda. As it is the seventh in the long running series you need to have read the first six to understand the story. It is 217 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Tsubaki and her step-brother on it. The intended reader is someone who likes high school romance, humor, and a little drama. There is no language, no sex, and no violence in this volume. The story is told from the third person close of Yukino or Soichiro. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- The second semester has begun and everyone's busy with tests, practices and activities. It's time to prepare for the culture festival and Yukino has been asked to perform in a futuristic sci-fi play. There's instant drama when Tonami, a transfer student and old friend of Soichiro, comes back on the scene after three years. Tempers flare and competitive natures run wild.

Review- A good plot book. Other characters get some characters development and Yukino is trying something new. We get more hints about what is going in Soichiro's head but still not very clear. I do think it's funny the way the plot is trying to make him seem like a hidden bad guy when he is just trying to deal with his feelings of love and loss. The way that Soichiro was drawn for some scenes just made me laugh but maybe I am just too far from being that age to really see any harm in his feelings. If he was acting them out that would be different but just having feelings is not and I think that is something everyone needs to learn on their own. More Drama Ahead.

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.
