Karo Kano: his and her circumstances volume 8


Today's post is on Karo Kano: his and her circumstances volume 8 by Masami Tsuda. As it is the eighth in the long running series you need to have read the first seven to understand the story. It is 216 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Yukino on it looking at the reader. There is no language, no sex, and no violence in this volume. The intended reader is someone who likes manga, high school romance, and drama. The story is told from third person close of Soichiro and Yukino. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- As preparations for the culture festival continues, Soichiro realizes that there are actually two sides to his personality, one that is gentle and giving, and one which is frighteningly violent and possessive. It is a development tath hasn't gone unnoticed by Yukino either, and she worries that it will damage their relationship. Meanwhile, Tonami and Tsubaki finally realize that they have fallen in love with each other.

Review- The blurb makes the plot sound much more intense that it really is. Yes, Soichiro is dealing with some jealously but he is not dangerous. He does not attack or hurt anyone. He ignores them. That does hurt Tonami's feeling but they are working it out. The real plot is Yukino and her friends are going to do a play for the school festival and all that chaos with it. Soichiro is trying to handle loving and being loved in return as best as he can. But with his damaged background of rejection from family, that makes it hard for him. But I know that there is more Drama ahead.

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.
