I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
This volume is a perfect example of how a story where nothing much happens can be enjoyable. I loved seeing elegant Alice be charmed by something as simple as ripples in her water bowl, and watching Chi and Yohei together gives me warm fuzzies. Chi's expressions when getting her first collar and dealing with the vacuum were perfect. This is just a nice, sweet series.
