    1. we hare starting this volume with Godai looking for a job and that child (from his work at the previous school) is still sticking to him and voila! her dad is a the manager at the company that godai is applying for. 2. it kinda annoyed me when that child tried to get godai a chance and even when he had the interview he did nit make it cuz he had to take a pregnant lady to give birth at the hospital. 3. it pissed me off how yagami (the child) went to sleep at Godai's room and her parents did n 1. we hare starting this volume with Godai looking for a job and that child (from his work at the previous school) is still sticking to him and voila! her dad is a the manager at the company that godai is applying for. 2. it kinda annoyed me when that child tried to get godai a chance and even when he had the interview he did nit make it cuz he had to take a pregnant lady to give birth at the hospital. 3. it pissed me off how yagami (the child) went to sleep at Godai's room and her parents did not do anything about it, i mean your child is basically sleeping at the bachelor's room and you're just letting her? and i just felt like she was a nuisance tbh how she is ready to quit school just to support Godai! ugh! 4. i wish godai and kyoko actually spent the night but it didnt happen. 5. gosh when he shouted to Yagami's dad "I'M IN LOVE WITH MY LAND LADY" cute! wish kyoko heard it tho. 6. so even tho godai got a job, the company went bankrupt and he us back to 0. 7. he's working at the kindergarten CUTE! 8. i kinda felt kyoko is comparing godai a lot to her late husband and that is the wrong way to give a man an advice so hmmmmm? 9. i think mikata is being pushed aside very much, why does kyoko have to make him wait if her heart clearly goes back to godai? i think mikata should be treated better. 10. that new fiancee for Mikata is amazing but minus the dogs! 11. mikata is using this opportunity to pressure kyoko into a decision within a week and i feel like this is reasonable for him since he is waiting for like 4 years ,, so yeah.. all in all, i feel like this volume was a nice read, and i hate yagami.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was such an amazing volume of Maison, as relationships are really getting serious. We start with Godai finally having words work in his favor. He and Yagami are fighting (because her father won't give him an interview, even after hearing that he missed his to help a pregant woman in distress, and ultimately thinks that Godai is using his daughter to get a job), and when her father overhears Godai defending himself, he realizes that the fellow IS a good chap, and offers him a position at one This was such an amazing volume of Maison, as relationships are really getting serious. We start with Godai finally having words work in his favor. He and Yagami are fighting (because her father won't give him an interview, even after hearing that he missed his to help a pregant woman in distress, and ultimately thinks that Godai is using his daughter to get a job), and when her father overhears Godai defending himself, he realizes that the fellow IS a good chap, and offers him a position at one of the subsidiary companies. So things are looking up for Godai. He even makes plans to move out of Maison Ikkoku (imagine, a place with a bathroom!), which makes Kyoko feel conflicted. But just when everything's going right, he discovers that the particular subsidiary company has declared bankruptcy. So he's unemployed as fast as he was employed. (sigh) Kyoko tries to cheer him, and after the anniversary of Soichiro's death, she stops by the preschool where he's been working (and flourishing, incidentally). They have a stilted and misunderstood conversation about going with the flow and accepting different outcomes than were planned, because apparently Soichiro was really laid back. Godai thinks she's comparing him to her dead husband, and is entirely confused. Mitaka, meanwhile, is being pressured by his uncle to marry an heiress to a fortune, Asuna Kujo. He's still interested in Kyoko, and realizes that marrying her is the only way to get his uncle off his back, so he asks her for an answer within the week. He meets Asuna (who falls for him instantly) - she's a very lovely, quite, dog fan. As in, she has a bunch of dogs and they all love Mitaka, and he's paralyzed with fear. Kyoko spends the week wanting to talk to Godai, but he's been working nonstop. Finally he says he'll come home early that night, but it's payday and his friend insists on taking him to a dirty film and to see strippers, etc. He comes home the next morning and Kyoko is furious (even though she never actually told him that she wanted to talk, much less why). She's exhausted and angry, and goes to her meeting spot with Mitaka, but falls asleep. Mitaka, meanwhile, is cornered by Asuna's dogs, and misses the meeting, too. The will-they-marry-or-won't-they question goes on, with Asuna falling harder for Mitaka and Kyoko feeling more and more confused. Godai decides to confess his love for Kyoko, but can't find the time to do it in person. So, when he's recording something for a student named Kyon-Kyon (who adores him), he also records a cassette confession for Kyoko, letting her know that he's started saving up so that he can be worthy of her and she'll marry him when they're ready. Unfortunately, he switches the tapes. >.< Kyoko goes to take care of Mitaka when he's bedridden after an afternoon with Asuna's dogs, but unfortunately a dog gets into the apartment and jumps at Mitaka. He throws himself at Kyoko to get away from the dog, right when Asuna and Godai enter the apartment. They see both of them on the floor, looking as though they've been making out. What I really loved the most in this amazing volume is Kyoko's growth. There's a moment when she realizes that she's placing her indecision about Mitaka, which isn't fair to any of them. This really is such a lovely slow burn, and the pace is perfect for this to occur 2/3 of the way through the story. I also really love that Godai is good at being a preschool teacher, and is now working toward accreditation in that field. It keeps him a student longer (yay), but it also gives him a strength and a goal. He's really growing up nicely.

    Ten volumes in and the courtship of Yusaku and Kyoko continues to astound me. The introduction of Coach Mitaka's new love interest, Asuna Kujo, spurs Mitaka to put Kyoko on the spot. He asks Kyoko for her answer (will she marry him or not? -she's had FOUR years to think about already, after all ), which pushes Kyoko to try to figure out where things stand between she and Yusaku. It's whimsical and fun, the misunderstandings flow naturally, and the characters' actions and reactions are always high Ten volumes in and the courtship of Yusaku and Kyoko continues to astound me.

It's whimsical and fun, the misunderstandings flow naturally, and the characters' actions and reactions are always highly amusing. Particularly funny was Mrs. Ichinose's comment about Yusaku not being the only wishy-washy person in the Yusaku-Kyoko dance. Yusaku also finally graduates from college in this book, only to find out that the company he was supposed to begin working for has filed for bankruptcy, so while Mitaka is pushing Kyoko for a commitment, Yusaku can't bring himself to ask her out, because he cannot support her. He truly cannot catch a break! The relationships among the cast of Maison Ikkoku are so organic, and every character is so compelling and sympathetic, that you're just pulled into their struggles and, despite laughing at their plight frequently, you still hope fervently that everything will work out for them all.

    Here comes Asuna, the only serious competitor we ever see for Mitaka's affection. Like Kyoko, Asuna is of the "indirect" school of getting the man she wants, and (very mild spoiler) (view spoiler)[through a combination of effort and coincidence, succeeds (hide spoiler)] . I got a little annoyed with Kyoko when she seemed to expect Godai to read her mind when he had no idea what was troubling her, and had no way of knowing, and got angry with him. And a horrible misunderstanding ends the volume--n Here comes Asuna, the only serious competitor we ever see for Mitaka's affection.

I got a little annoyed with Kyoko when she seemed to expect Godai to read her mind when he had no idea what was troubling her, and had no way of knowing, and got angry with him. And a horrible misunderstanding ends the volume--never my favorite romance trope. But there's something satisfying about a bunch of dim and (mostly) good-hearted people finding their best match, that keeps me reading and rooting for them. Takahashi's storytelling is superb. These people always feel like people, warts and all. Well, aside from the Greek chorus. Speaking of which, Nikaido is all but absent from this volume, and is not included in scenes with the rest of the chorus. Maybe the author wants to shove him under the rug as much as I want her to. ;)
