Skip Beat: Volume 27

by Yoshiki Nakamura, 199 pages

Ren and Kyoko spend their first day as the black-clad, multi-pierced Heel siblings and are organically working out the details as they come up, but when some delinquent guys trying to pick up "Setsu" don't take the opportunity to back off, Ren and Kyoko find their adopted personas more difficult to maintain.

Ooh, we get to see a brief flash of old-school Ren surface from beneath both his role as "Cain" and his seemingly usual self.  And dude, is he a little scary.  Even Kyoko's not sure if he was in or out of character at the time.  I want to know more about Ren's dark days back in the States, before he remade himself and became an accomplished actor.  We've only gotten hints so far, and not too many of those, so it's exciting to get a more concrete chunk, even if it's still small.  This volume ends on a slightly ominous note, so I'm impatient for the next one.  I love these!
