The death of Yamanami casts a cold, dark shadow over the troop, as each member feels the unspoken pain of his loss. Kamiya is the only one to mourn his death openly. But just as her emotions begin to settle, a new source of anxiety pops up—Sae, Soji's old love interest, appears in Kyoto looking for him. How will Kamiya cope with this challenge to the most important relationship in her life?

    Informative and Alluring

    This series is awesome!! I do wish at times that there was a little more romance and a little less history, but I do love the historical accuracy of it as well. The artist/author has done tons of research to make this series ring true. Of course I love it for the main characters as well who really show marked development. The reason I picked it up at all is because I have a fettish for girls-pretending-to-be-boys scenarios, but he acual lovey-dovey scenes are few and far between. Most of their romantic growth comes from one sided realizations and thoughts. I keep hoping that the farther the series gets, the more romance will blossom, but that has yet to be seen.

    Here's to hoping!
