Summary: honey moon starts here!
Comment: This book just keep getting better and better kei and ran are the two main people for me but masa and kai are interesting also. i can understand why kei is upset with his brother he is always spoiling things for him. but he doesn't want any one looking at masa he is a very selfish boy! the shower scene was very hot i like seeing ran's face when he is in the heat of passion the face turns even on and when they lay flowers on the grave of Kei's mother it's funny the way masa and ran seem to gravitate toward each other it's like it's done on purpose but it's so inocent but the brothers think otherwise. it's funny watching kai get jealous and upset with ran who is supose to be the on he is in love with. when it comes to masa no one is spared his jealousey he is like a little boy who wants all he sees no matter what! i love this vol and look forward to the rest of the series. the sex is hot and the story never lets you down it just makes you eager for the next vol.

Summary: My faith in this series renewed.
Comment: Finally, Kizuna returns its focus to the loving relationship between Kei and Ran. I am absolutely satisfied with this new volume and I look forward even more to the next volume. I'm even happy that BeBeautiful seems to have picked up the pace with their releases from last year's painfully slow schedule, and a top notch job they did. I'd have to say that this is the publisher of yaoi that I respect the most for quality of localization into English, even if they are the slowest.

Ah, fan service. It seems Kodaka took notice of its absense as of late. She gave us a small taste of it in volume 6, but that was not nearly satisfying enough. Having been denied any real graphic depictions for several volumes, Tashiro and JB in the last volume not withstanding, we finally get to see the newlyweds consummate their relationship on vacation.

Kei finally heals and we get a wonderful scene with his father and his now husband. The lovebirds get a free trip to a hotspring from the aging yakuza boss which the two men use as their honeymoon destination. Kai of course, who is still having trouble dealing with his feelings for Masa, forces himself along and the standard angst and interruptions of Kei and Ran's alone time ensue. We're in a place with that relationship that satisfied many of my expectations by the end of the volume, but there is enough left over to hold my interest into volume 8. We also get to learn a whole lot more about Kei's childhood and his mother, and Ran finally makes a decision about his prospects in kendo thanks to some goading from Kei.

A lot of people don't like Kai. I can understand where that comes from. He's completely immature. I don't understand though, why people seem to think that Masa is not a good match for him. Masa is just as messed up as Kai is. They deserve each other. One spastic spoiled brat and one stoic brooding jerk. They balance each other, and when they don't they at the very least cancel one another out. Volume 8 promises to give us the best taste of this couple's relationship.

For fans of Kizuna, I have to say this volume is wonderful. Don't waste time wondering whether or not to get it. I know I will be waiting happily for the next installment myself.

Summary: A Romantic Vol 7!
Comment: After the heavy story arc in Vol 4 to 6, the romantic Vol 7 is a great change in pace. Vol 7 finds my favorite Yaoi couple, Ran and Kei, on their honeymoon (remember Kei's proposal in Vol 6). Of course, Masa and Kai are along for the ride. Being interrupted constantly by a mercurial Kai is certainly not the couple's idea of a honeymoon.
Ran and Kei are into some pretty hot coupling here. The scenes in the hot bath and hot spring, on the tatami are darn erotic. Kei, just recovered from his ordeal, is at his most randy self and Ran...Well Ran may "seems" reluctant on the surface but certainly not shy in anyway. Meanwhile poor Kai is trying to get the moody Masa to reciprocate.

On a personal note, I never understand why Kodaka pair the intriguing Masa with the bratty Kai. Maybe I am bias as I never like Kai while I am all for Masa. I know I am the loner in this opinion.

For those of us into romance, Vol 7 is certainly worth its weight in gold. There is also a touching revelation of the 2 brothers' past when they first met.

Looking forward to Vol 8 and let's hope Bebeautiful does not dally too much.
