"Well, this series still continues to entertain me. Although this volume wasn't nearly as action packed as the last one, it was nonetheless an interesting watch due to the increased development of the characters and interactions among them. You see more to Ryofu than simply being a super strong, bisexual nympho, and you learn that under all her risque silliness, Goei is actually a very caring mother concerned for the well being of her only child, Hakufu. And then there's Ryomou...I just keep liking this girl more and more with each episode. You even see her actually smile a couple times! The interaction between her and Hakufu was especially entertaining for me. It's amazing to see how much their relationship has developed ever since their intense first-meeting battle back in vol. 1. I also felt a bit of pity for the fighters because these episodes really emphasize how bound they are to the fates of their ancient warrior souls, even though they may try to fight against it.
For those of you who love fanservice, you will not be disappointed with this volume--with a hotsprings episode as well as a pool episode, the FS is virtually nonstop. And for those of you who may hate FS, you've been warned. The last episode ends with a major cliffhanger as Hakufu is challenged by a fighter who she may end up loosing her life against, the hot-blooded Ukitsu. So it looks like the next and final volume's gonna start off with a bang! I'm looking forward to it. I just hope the ending of this series will at least be decent.
The extras include the usual (trailers, art-gallery, etc.) as well as a promo video. I also found the hidden outtakes--after you select "extras", push play while Hakufu does her twirl and kick in the screen. Funny stuff."
