    This volume is mostly denouement of the civil servant exam arc. The strongest threads are intrigue and comedy - especially with the unmasking of Minister Ko, the return of Ensei and Kourin (although she doesn't even reunite with Shurei here) and the setting up and intensification of the Sa Province arc (if it's true that the manga adaptation ends at volume 9 we won't get to see that. I'm quite happy that the second series of the anime was fansubbed so I know what happened there: it's not as if t [...]

    Yeah, okay, that was an extraordinarily goofy way to resolve the Ministry of Rites conflict. xD None can stand up to Minister Ko's devastating beauty! All shall love him and despair! (I found myself head tilting at this point, like beauty is subjective, it's not possible for someone to exist who could have the kind of devastating effect Ko has on literally everyone. And then I slapped myself upside the head because this is shoujo okay, suspension of disbelief is necessary! Just think of it as ma [...]

    This manga is absolutely worth the read, however the final volume falls short. Nothing is resolved, and the ending is lazy. This is a nine volume manga covering a twenty-two volume light novel, and the last novel is just side stories. The ending of the light novel is utter bullshit. After waiting for her for twelve years, Ryuuki and Shuurei finally get married, then she dies in childbirth. It's an awful, stupid ending to series that deserved better. Seriously, it's like Princess Tutu all over ag [...]

    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.

    Volume 8 is another solid installment for The Story of Saiunkoku. What is not to love about Shurei? She's intelligent, she's loyal, she's strong, and she knows what she wants to do with her life. Recommended.

    I really like that Ryuki's relationship with Shurei is basically impossible because she's more interested in a career. It's an unbelievably empowering but also heartbreaking story.

    Another good volume. The art style keeps getting better. The story's also good. And I like some of the characters.

    Shurei proves them wrong!Eigetsu and Shurei get the most surprising placements!!!The little extra story on the 'cross dressing' is hilarious!!
