I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Twenty-six volumes, and this series still makes me happy and excited. That's a rare thing. Usually I burn out on long-running manga series long before this point.
The intensity of Kyoko's focus can be...astonishing. Seriously, she studied Ren so well in order to make little Ren dolls (because that's not creepy at all) that she was able to recognize him immediately, even when he looked so different from his normal self.
The part of me that looks forward to every scrap of romance Nakamura throws readers' way was bouncing with happiness at the thought of seeing where this Setsuka and Cain Heel thing would go. Ren and Kyoko seem to practically be surrounded by matchmakers trying to nudge the two of them together.
