Can’t Lose You 6

September 26, 2007

Well, this one still didn’t quite grab me, even in the end, but I will admit it got much better in these last two volumes, and the conclusion is probably some of the most… well, passionate girly stuff you can lay hands on.

Well, it’s all so tragic, just as promised.   A few people don’t make it to the end.  One death in particular broke my heart, because he was actually my favorite character.  A lot of other things work out exactly as you would imagine, though I will give this series a lot of credit: the cliffhanger from last volume?  Where it looks like Gaon is just going to go out and kill the Grandfather?  Total red herring.  I loved that the hunting didn’t actually take place.

It did have a happy ending of sorts, though, even without the deaths.  As I said, everything is very passionate, too.  Even though I wasn’t particularly fond of most of the characters (I didn’t really think they became very original or fleshed out as the series went on), I really got into the continuous love confessions and heart-to-hearts that were running throughout the volume, even between the two twins, the mom, the bodyguard… just about everyone had something passionate to say, and it came off pretty sincere.  It’s hard to do that.

I still think it was kind of a quick girly fix.  It’s not particularly deep or noteworthy, but it’s got a lot of good things about it.
