Shonen-Ai Review: Loveless, Vol. 9 [Paperback]

I've finished "Loveless Vol. 9" by Yun Kouga.

Product Description

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for T audiences.

When his beloved older brother is brutally murdered, Ritsuka is heartbroken but determined to search for answers. His only lead is Soubi, a mysterious, handsome college student who offers him an intimate link to his brother’s other life: a dark and vibrant world of spell battles and secret names. Will Ritsuka’s relationship with Soubi ultimately lead to the truth or further down the rabbit hole than he imagined possible?

Seimei is very much alive and has torn through the Seven Voices Academy like a whirlwind. As Septimal Moon struggles to right itself and keep its secrets from spilling out, a new enemy takes center stage: the unit named “Bloodless” wages a crippling psychological war, ending battles without spilling a single drop of blood. Yet Ritsuka and Soubi must emerge victorious against them — or lose Kio.

My Review:

I highly recommend reading the first 8 volumes or else you will get confused who is who and what is going on like me.  

It's been 4 years since Loveless has been published since Tokyopop is no longer in production.  It is now published by Viz Media and the artwork is beautiful with some interesting characters.
