Gravitation 8

August 1, 2015

Maki Murakami – Tokyopop – 2004 – 12 volumes

Ugh.  I was right.  Eiri and Shuichi break up here, mostly because of Tohma.  For some reason, Eiri goes along with it (presumably to protect Tohma from pushing Shuichi in front of a car), but… you know, this is a romance manga, so of course he doesn’t mean it.  Anyway, this is a depressing volume because of it.

We meet several more Americans here, and even get to go to America.  Apparently, New York City has a lot more guns than we have in Chicago.  People just chase each other around shooting them!

Eh.  This wasn’t as funny as the other ones.  The humor wasn’t so much with Shuichi this volume, so it wasn’t as funny for me.  There’s no romance, no band… no Gravitation!  I’m hoping volume 9 will get back on firmer ground.
