I reviewed this for the weekly Manga Minis column at Manga Recon, so you can check out the review over there.
The Junior Escort yaoi series gets a little more interesting in this volume. Its scattered plot seems like it’s collecting itself, and also that it was scattered for a purpose. Apparently there is one more volume in the series, and I will be blown away if it manages to keep up the momentum here and finish off the story in an entertaining and sensical way.
I mention this in the review too, but the other thing that helped this volume out was the fact that the chapters were episodic, rather than being big chunks of plot like the last volumes. The shorter stories make more sense, and I actually grew to like the characters more in this volume because I wasn’t completely lost in whatever was going on with the plot.
