My Review:

The beginning of this manga is the conclusion to the Yuri storyline and I'm glad it's over with.  We find out the reason why she is getting between Princess Sakura and Aoba and then she turns her attentions to Fujimurasaki when she receives a poem/proposition from him.

Fujimurasaki confesses to Princess Sakura that he loves her and wants her for himself.  Then he proceeds to kiss her and she doesn't resist (it seems she kind of liked it and in shock).  Aoba catches them in the act and he rips into Fujimurasak.  Aoba forces Princess Sakura to come with him and they both confess they only want each other.

Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
