The Story of Saiunkoku (vol. 3) story by Sai Yukino, art by Kairi Yura

The Story of Saiunkoku, Vol. 3 - Kairi Yura, Sai Yukino

If I hadn't seen and loved the first season of the anime, I might have quit reading the series after this volume. It was a tad slow.

This volume introduced several characters I enjoyed: Minister Ko, the mysterious, mask-wearing guy who possesses hidden kindness; Reishin, the minister who insists that Shurei call him “uncle”; and grisly, bearded Ensei. I also enjoyed getting to see Shurei excel at being a temporary civil servant.
