This volume continues to set up the final story arc. We learn that Misao is in the family way and she and Kyo are working on coming to terms with it. It's more tender than the other volumes though Kyo is still Kyo. We are left with a cliffhanger at the end with the final revelation about the fate of the Senka Maiden.
Misao still cries too much for my taste. She's just too immature and wishy-washy in spite of all that they have gone through. The contrast between her and Kyo makes it increasingly difficult for me to reconcile that they are even a couple. With that aside, this is still a decent issue and you want to find out how our couple deals with the problems that lie ahead for them.
