Boy Princess 5
April 3, 2007
It’s REALLY hard to tell the characters apart. I don’t know the difference between Nicole’s brothers, I don’t know the difference between the brother from the other kingdom and the apothecary, so it’s insane when the scenes switch around and you need some time to figure out who’s talking about what. I’m still not entirely sure of the crown prince/royalty situation over in Jed’s kingdom, and what the deadly conflict is over there, either.
I’m glad some time is being spent on the relationship between Jed and Nicole, though. With all the hints that are being dropped… really, I can’t deal with a bunch of similar characters talking about other things if there’s no hint that the main couple isn’t going anywhere at all. It was kind of frustrating how they kept missing each other. I’m kinda surprised that I’m this drawn into them, because the characters really aren’t all that well-developed, but for some reason the relationship is really compelling. I don’t know how that works.
I would say that the plot wasn’t advanced that much this time around, except it ended on such a huge cliffhanger that I’m considering going to Netcomics and reading the next volume… except then I’d feel bad buying it. So I must wait.
