    One thought on “Loveless, Volume 10”

    1. Those looking for a lot of action in this volume of "Loveless", you're going to be disappointed. There's only one fight, and we don't really get to see it (more on that later), just a lot of talking and internal developments. This one's a quieter, more sinister volume compared to some of the past volumes in the "Loveless" series, but it still has that full-bodied impact that only Kouga knows how to bring with her storytelling.So in this volume, we meet the newest unit, Moonless, which come to Ri [...]

    2. So the first half felt weak and meandering, limp on the drawing aspect and lazy on the story progression. This is the first volume I've ever skimmed through. Although I will say in the last half, it picked up a bit and got going again. The art could still use some help to restore it back to its former glory (it came across as rushed maybe?), and with the introduction of new characters as well as further intricacy to the plot, development on both fronts suffers. However, stuff did happen, and tha [...]

    4. ~4/5[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]This volume was a bit of a reprieve from the previous couple, a break from the major serious stuff. It was very nice, as the serious stuff was getting big and complicated, and I think the reader (at least, I did) and the characters needed things to calm down.While I do love Ritsuka and Soubi, cause they’re my favorite and everything, I must say that I love Youji and Natsuo. I was sad when they left Soubi’s place, and am very happy that they’re back [...]

    5. I felt a little lost in this volume at some points, since I have not read V5-V9, but luckily, that did not happen much. In this volume, we are first greeted with Kio, who is visiting a house where only women are allowed to live. I am intrigued by that concept myself, but it meant very little to the story, and was therefore not focused on much. Also, we find out that Ritsuka is planning to handle Seimei in some unknown way. I'm kinda thrown for a loop by that statement and idea, and I was under t [...]

    6. I read this ARC via Edelweiss/Above the Treeline.The beginning of this volume had me all kinds of confused. Kio visits some girls, who appear to be either his daughter or twin sister? I wasn't really clear on what was happening. Luckily, the story then moved to Ritsuka returning to school and dealing with Yuiko's obsessive attention. The two Zeros arrive and have a tumultuous first day. Walking home from school, Ritsuka meets up with a young man named Moonless, but Soubi isn't answering his cell [...]

    7. Since Volume 9 was almost pure action, I expected Vol 10 to be a bit slower, but it was waaaaay slower. Not a single battle in the whole volume. That would be fine if there was a lot of information hitting. If I were getting answers, I probably wouldn't feel so sad about the lack of action. It definitely raised questions and built suspense, but now I have to wait until volume 11 for answers. This is the same problem that I have with single issue comics. Nothing seems to happen and then I'm left [...]

    8. Ritsuka is freaking ADORABLE, and there'd be no reason to read it if he were not xDAt this point, Soubi isn't too bad either, though I still hold onto the pretense that I hate him. (He's become a doe-eyed, abused Asian. Heaven help us)Ritsuka's mom is sort of cute, in a really sad way :/ I was like, awAlso, SPOILER, Seimei's a jerk.Rating PG13Partial nudity, talk of rape in a character's past, and a heavy, heavy yaoi and some yuri overtone even in scenes where it's not present (positions, face e [...]

    9. As a fan for around 7 years, Loveless still captivates me. The entire concept of spell battles through words, cat ears as a symbolism of innocence, Fighters & Sacrifices as if masters and servants. And Yun Kouga's art only gets better. Personally, I don't mind the pacing at all. We get to peak into the different sides of the characters. I especially like seeing Seimei, or at least finding out his true intentions, and what 7 moons really want, specifically, from him, the hesitations of Soubi [...]

    10. This volume is full of surprises! Surprises that I will not spoil.Ritsuka keeps on his path of being a surprisingly strong and kind guy. I really like that about him, despite what he has been/is going through. It seems like he also acts his age a little in this volume, which turns out to be incredibly cute.The bonus story at the end with Soubi helping the manga artist is probably one of my favorite extras for any manga ever now.

    11. I have to say, the beginning of this volume was a little weird with the sudden reveal with Kio. I think I need to re-read the 9th book, but I'm not sure if that will help. XDThere promises to be more stuff going on in the next volume, learning more about Seimei from some new characters introduced in this volume. Hopefully we will learn more next volume.

    12. The problem I have with Loveless is that not only do I have no idea whatsoever what's going on half of the time, there's also the fact that the story itself hardly ever seems to be moving forward. I like the characters and the art, but I really wonder whether it'll all make sense in the end. This will be interesting to see if this ever gets finished.

    13. First read February 7, 2013.-Her art style has changed (for the better, I think) since the earlier volumes of this series and we got a revelation about Kio which made me wonder if I was still reading the same series. I'm beginning to be very, very worried she doesn't know where all this is going.

    14. While reading "Junjo Romantica," I began to wonder if the manga mania had at long last left me, for even after twelve vols. I just wasn't into it. Then I came back to Ritsuka and Soubi, and I'm back where I want to be.Re-read it: 10/11/16-10/13/16.

    15. The art of this series just astounds me. I need to go back and reread the whole series because I was a little lost while reading this one didn't stop my enjoyment of it though.

    16. this vol takes even more steps into the weird. it's nice to know that's possible. (one life lesson to be learnt from the Japanese is that it's always possible to go weirder.)
