There's also page short story unrelated to Sakura, called Vampire Rose. It's fun little manga about a school's occult club and a supposed vampire living in the school.

The story then moves on to ninjas Kohaku and Shuri. Through a series of flashbacks, Tanemura-sensei casts an air of tragedy over the fight between former friends, but from a battle standpoint, her depiction of the duel feels flawed. The story then moves on to the next fight between Kohaku and the deserter ninja Shuri. Kohaku, however, is not the underdog that Naruto is. By the way, Volume 5 includes several extras including bonus funnies, bonus illustrations, and the page one-shot White Rose Academy: Jan 31, Miss rated it liked it. Did someone say childhood friends?
Shoujo manga has trained me to believe these are the greatest most important relationships, full stop. I am super ready to read the story of the reconciliation of Shuri and Kohaku as facilitated by Hayate as mediator. Did you see that panel at the end when he picked the both of them up? I think my heart grew three sizes just then. I'll see a doctor. Right after Shuri is reintegrated into the village and all the ninjas live happily ever after. I dug the second ha Did someone say childhood friends? I dug the second half of this volume much more than the first because well childhood friends ninja kids backstory, of course I would.
But also because I don't really understand Sakura's affection for Maimai. I mean dude turned into a murderer just because he wanted to be beautiful. And Byakuya raised her, you think she'd be a bit more conflicted about being kind to the man who was trying to kill her three seconds ago.

You tried to kill my pseudo-grandma but hey it's cool, of course you're still pretty? Nov 25, Marina rated it really liked it Shelves: I give this 4 stars. Nice to get the back stories for the characters. Lots of couples emerging which I like a lot. Wer war Byakuya wirklich? Die Geschichte dahinter umso trauriger.
Man versteht nun endlich, warum sie ihren alten Kinderfreund Aoba mit Prinz Ora anspricht, obwohl er das selbst nicht will. Dec 08, Miss Ryoko rated it liked it Shelves: I got to hand it to Tanemura-san with this series There is a lot more depth and mystery to all these characters than she's ever put in her stories before.
This is definitely her best series! What is up with the name Hikaru? This is the third series in row where there has been a character named Hikaru though this one was in her one shot story at the end I get really exci I got to hand it to Tanemura-san with this series I get really excited at the end of each of these volumes to read the next one.

I am glad I saved this series for last! Aug 26, Sarah Hayes rated it liked it Shelves: So the art is still as gorgeous and ever and the backstory involving the ninja was awesome - but other than that, nothing special is going on in this volume of Sakura Hime. I think it's time for me to accept that this Tanemura is different than the Tanemura who gave us treasures like Full Moon wo Sagoshite and Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne; a good few of the plot elements in this story feel borrowed from other sources.
Plus, it feels like Sakura's been sidelined from most of the action - and this is he So the art is still as gorgeous and ever and the backstory involving the ninja was awesome - but other than that, nothing special is going on in this volume of Sakura Hime.
Plus, it feels like Sakura's been sidelined from most of the action - and this is her series, for goodness' sake. The 4-koma featuring Tanemura and her assistants are pretty adorable, though; can we have more of those please? Sep 07, Luke Reynolds rated it liked it Shelves: I didn't enjoy this as much as the other volumes. I think it might be because I care more about Sakura more than I do about the moon people Shuri's backstory was interesting, though.
I'm still looking forward to seeing how this story ends up. Bring on the drama! Also, the short story included in this volume White Rose Academy: Vampire Rose , which has absolutely nothing to do with Sakura Hime was bizarre but funny. It's just kind of creepy that Hikaru looks like Enju. Just saying I didn't enjoy this as much as the other volumes. Feb 20, Meg Fee rated it really liked it. We not only get several fight scenes but we also start learning the past of the missing ninja via several flashbacks.
As time passes I can't help but like the 'bad' guys a little.
So far all the characters in the manga have an interesting past that makes them all flawed, and to me that makes them more real as characters. Jul 02, pinkthecolour rated it liked it Shelves: This volume is pretty much all backstory, which i did enjoy. Jun 18, Audrey D rated it it was amazing. The only characters worth reading this volume for are Byakuya and Shuri.
After reading this volume Shuri is by far my favorite character. The other three childhood friends just annoyed me. The only reason I gave this volume the rating I did was because of Shuri. Aug 20, Dani - Perspective of a Writer rated it it was amazing Shelves: This mainly is to do about the ninja on both sides. The turn of events both in the present and past are pretty incredible. I really enjoyed these developments.
I feel for Hayate and Kohaku and having to face Shuri and Hato. Best Sakura Hime volume yet! Mar 10, Nohely rated it it was amazing Shelves: Here we see the backstory of Enju's minions. But somehow I am starting to dislike Sakura. Feb 10, Mariana Avalos rated it liked it.
So far this manga has been a really good series but it seems that there is only action in this volume and even though I like some action as a reader, I think it was too much. Sep 06, Victoria rated it it was amazing. Is a great book to read. Apr 24, Starbubbles rated it liked it Shelves: This feels like it's a little slow in moving the story forward. The back-stories are interesting, but it feels as though it's stalling or that the story lacks a purpose to drive it forward.
