Manhwa Review: Very! Very! Sweet, Vol. 7 [Paperback]

I've finished "Very Very Sweet Vol. 7" by Ji-Sang Shin and Geo.

Product Description

Tsuyoshi wanders the streets, still reeling after learning the truth of his past and the cruelty that ripped his true family apart. Unwilling to return home and face his uncle and grandfather, Tsuyoshi asks to stay with Be-Ri for the night. But Erica and Mi-Hyuk are not about to leave the two of them alone in an empty house, and Be-Ri is soon made the unwilling host of an impromptu slumber party. It's no surprise when Tsuyoshi is the first to fall asleep, but when the time comes to rouse him, Tsuyoshi remains unconscious.

My Review:

This volume opens with Tsuyoshi wandering the streets looking lost and sad apparently after learning the painful truth about his past that tore his family apart.  Be-Ri follows him and he lets her know he can hear her walk and then he asks her to pay for food since he is hungry.  He sure does have an appetite (never known anyone to eat that amount of food in my life time).

He asks Be-Ri if he can stay overnight at her house because he doesn't want to face his grandfather or uncle.  Erica and Mi-Hyuk overhear and they refuse to allow them to be alone so they invite themselves over too.  When they finally fall asleep Tsuyoshi is the first to go down and when Be-Ri tries to wake him up he stays unconscious. 

The illustrations are still sharp and clear as ever and Tsuyoshi's uncle really looks like E-Wan from Chocolate.  This volume has a very sad and somber mood especially the death of his grandfather and how senseless it was.


Thanks Hachette Book Group/Yen Press for sending me this manhwa to review, greatly appreciated!
