Sakura Hime 9 (Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura)

Sakura Hime 9 (Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura) - Arina Tanemura This volume, in my opinion, was the best so far. I loved the insight into Aoba's past, and why he is pushing Sakura away. I also enjoyed the development of Hayate and Rurijo's relationship.
As always, the art was breathtaking, and I look forward to the next volume as this one finished with such a cliff-hanger!
