This volume concludes the trials of Shurei's training for a civil servant position and sets up for the next arc. It was quite engrossing. There really isn't too much to say about this except that the side story reveals Shurei's feelings toward Ryuki and it's pretty much the I love you but not in love with you speech. It's no surprise. It's pretty much have always been one-sided. No chemistry between the two really. oh well.
