Ritsuka skips school so he can rest up - he needs to stay up late talking to Seven through Wisdom Resurrection. Ritsu-sensei and Nagisa-sensei join the conversation as observers, and Soubi and the Zeros boys watch from Ritsuka's side... until a shocking truth is revealed about Seimei.
Details Loveless, Volume 5
Reviews Loveless, Volume 5
- I still have some trouble telling characters apart sometimes. And the story still feels very random - but that's what drew me to the series in the first place: that it's a random, insane, disturbing thing. With kids!Interestingly enough, the plot moves forward a bit and some of Seimei's insane machinations are starting to show up, messing with Ritsuka's mother's already messed up brain.
- The plot thickens.This volume was just as good as the last one, if not better. I love the finality between Ritsuka and Soubi - he trusts him completely, despite new evidence from Septimal Moon. I also love the entrance of Nisei - he feels like an opposite to Soubi and Seimei, a wonderful juxtaposition. If anything, this volume succeeds in creating so many more questions...
- The story is proceeding, but there are still problems:All characters are underdeveloped even at this point, and their actions seem irrational, like they're truly messed up in the head (and many of them are, for sure). Part of this is Japanese psychology, of course, but the rest is just hasty writing without focusing on smaller details that might bring some balance into the chaos the volumes are suffering from. This makes everyone seem more or les...
- I've only read the first 5 in this series back when I was younger. I didn't think about the age differences of the characters, and as an older, more mature adult, I still like the series, but I have suspend my belief in some ways. Main character is 12, there is fan service, probably, and kisses, but nothing more mature than that, I think. I hope. I only have vague memories. Also if memory serves, there is a lesbian relationship between two girls ...
- Kouga's talent knows no bounds. She always keeps her mind on progression of the storyline without ever once sacrificing character depth and conflict, as well as subplots and illustrations. I can sense a minor shift in style in this volume along with a glance into some new characters' lives as well as a token glimpse into the most conflicted character of all's head, Ritsuka's mother. As always, spellbinding and awing.
- Oh goodness... it's been a while. I owned this series in middle school and read them over and over again so much the binding nearly desintigrated. I scraped and saved every penny to buy a new volume. Might be time for a reread soon, for nostalgia's sake.
- I love the art. I admire Yun Kouga. Anyone who loves manga like me should definitely read this book.
- Got it in the mail and finished it the same day... I'm very interested to know what happens next!
- OMG!!!!! he's back holy crap!!
- I really love this series! Its intriguing and keeps me guessing on who's telling the truth and who's lying!
- The Seimei mystery is getting cleared up.
- Yay! More developments in the storyline, especially about Seimei. Ooooh.
- Beautiful art and interesting story.
- This actually might be one of my favorite volumes so far. I'm really curious to see what happens next... the characters in Loveless are so interesting.
- Bah. Despite the hype surrounding this manga/anime, I had a really hard time getting into it. It didn't hold my attention at all.
- Seimei is a jerk! He finally has a scene. And I cannot like Soubi... he hides too much. Is he a traitor or not? And Ritsuka trusting him... so naiive...
