I totally didn't know that Sakuragari vol 1 came out! I'm not much of a fan of hardcovers, but I will definitely get this. I'm so glad that it's going to be only two or three volumes, judging from the 「上」 designation. Less chance of Watase-sensei fucking it up. In any case, I realized that I hadn't read the latest chapters, so I went ahead and read chapters 3 and 4....

So far so good. It's really quite twisted. I like both characters and love how fucked up their relationship is right now. Will this end in tragedy? I hope so!

Souma: Why don't you talk lately? You're like a canary that's forgotten how to sing. You do everything I tell you to now...Is this how you defy me?
Masamune: ...
Souma: Go right ahead. If you hate me so much why don't you close your eyes so you can't see me?
Masamune: *closes eyes*
Souma: !!
Souma; *kisses Masamune*
Souma: I'll *make* you speak...

Oh, Souma, it's so sad that you don't know how to treat someone you care for. Crushing them in your hands to keep them from escaping will only end badly.

It must suck to be Souma. How unfortunate that you can bewitch virtually anything into madness just by existing. Of course, it'd help if you didn't sleep with everything with two legs, but I suppose ultimately it's the people who started him on the path of sexual depravity who is to blame.

I like the contrast with Masamune, a normal, good kid. His suffering is delicious. XD I hope they can reach each other's hearts (and then have a tragic ending). I look forward to reading more...

Random: A funny line from one of Watase-sensei's blog entries: 「ナルニアとヘルニアって似てるよね!」

Heh, you seem to have a less than sterling trust in her storytelling powers. XD

I trust her ability to write a good story as far as I can throw her, which is probably not very far. She can come up with great premises, but the execution...not so good.

Heh, that's often the case w/ a lot of mangaka, I find. A pity though, she's been around so long I would have thought she has authority enough to do what she wants and experience enough to follow through.
