    I still like this series a lot but I wish it were moving forward at a faster pace. It's starting to feel as if the story got stuck in place, taking two steps forward and two steps back. Hopefully, that will change in the upcoming volumes. I still like this series a lot but I wish it were moving forward at a faster pace.

    Shunbashi’s unrequited crush on Kureha reaches its swan song while Ichijo decides to face his feelings for Sou without fear. What will this mean for Ichijo’s relationship with Kureha?

I found myself respecting Ichijo a little more for facing his feelings for Sou, yet felt a little sorry for Kureha since Ichijo was using her to wallow in denial. Not that Shunbashi’s interest in her seems any healthier, although he is trying to be considerate of her, plus he has several valid points in his criticism of Ichijo. Nor does he come off as bigoted or hypocritical as both Kureha and Sou do. At the same time, I sympathized with Kureha and Sou, even while I wanted to slap them, sympathized with the struggle each went through to be honest about what they feel. I’m more curious than ever about Ai and the Black Knight. For developing all of these elements in a beautiful, dreamlike, yet menacing style, I give this four stars.

    I am never going to write these up the way I wanted to, so I am just going to do a light brush over each volume and move on. The gender binary stuff (and the way sexual attraction is conflated with gender -- ie, the gender of the person Mashiro is attracted to is meant to determine Mashiro's own gender) is hugely problematic now, although at the time I first read it I was amazed to find manga dealing with gender stuff in this much depth at all.

    I feel like most of this volume was a repeat of things that have already happened in the series. Only a few things seemed to have progressed in the story but nothing major. I hope next volume we get closer to solving the mystery of graduation or figuring out who the students are in the dreams.

    Book #155 in the year 2020 Ichijo breaks off his deal at the last minute when the Giraffe has the chance to graduate. Shinasa may have discovered Ichijo's secret and then he ends up in the Dream Class. Things excalate with Sou.

    4.5 stars. I feel like Mashiro blushes WAAY too often. Every time I see him and he's near Sou or in the dreams he seems to be blushing. It's kind of getting annoying... What I realized, is that the teacher for the dream classes knew Mashiro's secret, so that might mean she might know all his current relationship problems are. 'Singing in high pitch voice': "STAAALKERISH." I'm not exactly sure if Sou is gay, liked Mashiro before, found out he was half female and possibly ended up liking him more, or 4.5 stars.

'Singing in high pitch voice': "STAAALKERISH." I'm not exactly sure if Sou is gay, liked Mashiro before, found out he was half female and possibly ended up liking him more, or if he doesn't care and he just wants Mashiro's female half. As bad as that sounds, (and it is), its still a great possibility. I really liked Shinbashi's true form, but I'm kind of sad... [no spoilers this time ;3] Mashiro is so obsessed with "being a guy", that whenever he denies that he is a female too, the way he says it makes him sound desperate and untruthful, (which is true in both cases). He just says: "I'm not a girl, I'm a guy." 'Blush blush blush.' I really do pity Kureha, because she doesn't want to be alone. Without Mashiro, she feels she is nothing basically, and at some point or another they both are going to need to graduate. (He's already passed up several opportunities.) Maybe they could graduate together. Hmm... The summary seems to be wrong to me, because both on the back and the inside front cover it mentions Shinonome and how he and Mashiro struck a deal together. If my memory serves me correctly, (which trust me, it often doesn't) Shinonome left in the last volume and never appeared once in this volume. :/ Since its not that long, and I'm actually quite interested how Mashiro will go about his problems (hopefully ditching Sou), I will finish this series. I am determined!!

    Well, I don't know.. in this volume, the main character's friend who's in love with the main character's girlfriend is a wuss. Or really strong. He sacrifices time and again for her happiness. Even though she's afraid to get close to him and she's all attached to the main character.

Dude can tell that the main character isn't wholeheartedly in love with the girl, but he wants her to be happy. So he acts as a sort of go-between, encouraging her to give the main char a chance and encouraging the main char to get his/her head on straight and stop jerking her around. And it's either terribly noble and romantic, or it's totally pathetic. I can't decide. But in either case, neither the main character nor the girl deserve it. They're just balls of useless angst. The English translation has a couple of blank squares at the start of scenes, where I expect some information to be. The name of the location, the date, 'as the leaves turned to blah blah'.. something. But they're just blank squares with no text in them. Did part of the translation not get done? I'm also getting sick of being told what an obento is. Every time one shows up, there's a little asterisk telling you to check the translation notes. You'd think if someone didn't know what one was when they started the manga, they'd know by volume 4 and 5!!

    As Ichijou Mashiro’s hard kept secret is revealed to his classmates, Mashiro’s dream world is turned upside down. The after-hours class Mashiro signs up for is not at all what he expects it to be.

Passing the class is his only chance of graduation and the horrors he finds there are only the beginnings to the mysteries yet to be revealed. This dark series is filled with controversial and emotional issues that take the reader on a journey through what the characters are feeling and what they experience. There is always some sort of twists throughout causing the reader to re-think about the issues involved. Interesting concept to say the least! The story itself invokes a creepy mysterious concept taking place throughout the school. I was impressed with the complexities of the students and situations involved throughout the series. Reading this series the author does an amazing job of making the reader feel the characters pain and suffering. Note: This review was completed after reading volumes 1-10.

Volume 4 continues to showcase vulnerability and (relatively) chaste physical contact, both of which will appeal to the young-adult crowd. This series offers a safe way to explore gender concepts, gender differences, and the nature of love (which sounds WAY more mushy than the manga is) and can be as shallow or deep as the reader wishes to take it. This would be a good book to use as a starting point for other, heavier books that explore gender and gender roles.

    I just flew through that one - picked it up and read it in one go. I'm sure there's lots of aspects about the story you could take issue with, but somehow I still love it... the tender scenes make me go jhagdhsgdgs and at the end of the volume I was quite shocked and sad (as in: touched - so shocked and sad in a good way, I guess). And it's not just the romance and the characters, but also the mystery as to what is actually happening. I just flew through that one - picked it up and read it in one go.

    This book was excellent. I enjoyed the plot and characters. I also thought it was rather nice, how the author told the meanings of each name. And how each name meaning was a color. This series at the end will leave you wanting the next book ASAP!!! At the end of each book. It leaves you on the edge lol. Two thumbs up!!! And breath taking!!

    Another solid offering in this dark series, but main character Mashiro is starting to get on my nerves-- pick one!!! Be male or female and go with it! I know that's not how big life decisions are really made, but I'm not convinced that Mashiro is making any progress yet in either direction. Sigh.

    Lots of Shinbashi in this one, which is kind of nice because I find him much easier to handle than any of the other characters at the moment!

    The series seems to feel like it's faltering or stalling within this volume. Everything is basically at the status quo from beginning to end. The series seems to feel like it's faltering or stalling within this volume. Everything is basically at the status quo from beginning to end.
