Skip Beat! (vol. 30) by Yoshiki Nakamura

Skip Beat!, Vol. 30 - Yoshiki Nakamura

I enjoyed this volume, even if Ren did go all dark and mopey. This is the volume when it occurred to me that dark, mopey Ren was a little like Gravitation's Eiri Yuki, except that Yuki also had a tendency to act like a jerk. Thankfully, Ren doesn't lash out at the people who love him.

Kyoko's reaction to

sleeping with Ren in his bed

(show spoiler)

was milder than I expected, and it was kind of nice that her instinct, the next day, was less "must freak out now" and more "must do some investigating so that I can do more to help."

I love this series so much.
