Still disturbing, but it does make me think. Why is it ok in American culture/lit for a a 100 year old male vampire to fall in love with a little girl and not for a 20 year old cat-person to fall in love with a little cat-boy. In fact, there are rampant inappropriate age matches of the older male to significantly younger female in our lit. Still, this book takes it to a much younger level. I just pretend R is 16 or 17. It's definitely a compelling and strange story.

Yun Kouga, Loveless, vol. 3 (Tokyopop, 2003)

Well, it only took me three volumes of Loveless to decide I wasn't going to continue on with this one. Too many structural defects, the main one being that scene shifts are almost impossible to track when (a) so many of your characters look close-to-identical and (b) they don't use each other's names all that often. A majority of the time I ended up having no clue who was who. Five more volumes of this? I'll pass. Fans of Fruits Basket (another manga with much the same problems) may get a lot more out of this than I did. **
