Maburaho Vol 5 : 3 of 5
Even though this series isn't what I'd call spectacular, I'm still keeping up with it - it's a little easier since I'm watching it as it's released, so I have to wait between volumes. It's an entirely different show now that Kazuki has become a ghost. He still goes to school with the girls and tries to live a "normal" life, so he has to concentrate to hold things in the real world, and the only thing he can really eat is cotton candy (which Yuna happily makes for him). Since the main plot doesn't seem to be going anywhere in this volume, these three episodes focus on other characters. First there's a story about Kuriko - she's suspected of being conned by a guy who wants to marry her for her family's money, and there's some fun scenes where Elizabeth (the little girl ghost who follows them around) feels jealous, since she kind of thinks of Kuriko as her mother (I think!). Next is a funny episode where it seems like Nakamaru, the brash kid in class, is the possessor of the most magical genes, so the class goes crazy waiting on him hand and foot. The best scene is when he makes all the guys in class dress as henchmen and all the girls wear bunny outfits! The last episode focuses on Rin and a battle with a family rival, but it ends with an interesting scene where another girl who knows Kazuki shows up and everyone starts collapsing for some reason. Maybe the next volume will be more exciting!
