Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 14


Today's post is on Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 14 by Masami Tsuda. As it is the fourteenth in the series you need to have read the first thirteen to understand what is going on. It is 200 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Soichiro on it. The intended reader is someone who likes high school romance, young adult drama, and mostly funny plots. There is no language, no sex, and mild violence in this volume. The story is told from the third person close of the main characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Ever since Arima appeared on TV everyone has taken notice. But Arima never counted on his birth mother taking notice! Arima wonders why, after so long, she finally decides to come back into his life. Slowly, the inner demons of his past begin to surface and Arima learns just how much he is like his own mother. Will Arima follow his mother down the path of darkness or will Yukino save him?

Review- So we get to see why Arima's uncle and aunt took him in. His mother is abusive and she wants to use him again. Soichiro at first just wants to understand her and when he does, she just losses it on him. Also Yukino now knows that he has been hiding things from her. She does not know what to do about it but she going to do something and soon. I have to say that the parents who raised Soichiro are the real heroes of this series. They really love him and want to give everything he needs. He wants to protect them from what he fears in himself and his birth parents. But this series is getting to a close and I cannot wait to see how everything is going to end up. Only six more volumes left and 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.
