by Yuu Watase, 190 pages
Kanate has an unwelcome reunion and makes a fateful decision while the rest of the gang infiltrate the palace of the local shinsho, Kugura, who's been absconding with local young ladies.
This volume is all about being happy with who you are (or confident enough in who you are not to freak out about a little cross-dressing). :P
Insert my usual grumbles about Arata and Kadowaki not getting nearly enough panel-time (all of five or six pages, this go-round). *sigh*
