Seriously, it’s so frustrating. I just binge re-read the first three volumes as a refresher, and then went straight into this one, and it took me all of an hour, and then it was done, and now I have to wait. And I’ve been trained to wait since I was a wee-reader, but for some reason, waiting for this series is something that is very unpleasant. When is the next one coming out? Why is the storytelling pace so agonizingly slow? I just want all of the story right now.
I suppose all this internal drama I’m legitimately experiencing means Pacat is doing her job correctly. I want to know more about fencing and I want Aiden and Harvard to get their shit together, and I want Seiji and Nicholas to become friends, and for Seiji to have any friends at all, and I want to see more fencing competitions and get awkwardly expositioned at from the sidelines. I want Nicholas’s issues with his father and half-brother to have some resolution. And this volume makes strides on all of that, but one volume of these every six months might kill me. Just make an anime adaptation already and release them all at once so I can just know. Ughhhh.
