Wow what a find to see the first 8 vol of this series together! I remember reading vol 1 a while back, didn't have much impression of it, but will give it another try.

Hmm... can a person really be as obnoxious as Sae? It reminds me of The Robber Bride. On the other hand, I am liking Toji less and less, he's the type of guy who thinks he has to carry everything on his shoulders.

in this book sae is so unbelievably evil and toji a little too stupidly noble that it was a little hard for me to stay engaged. still interested in seeing how it plays out, though.

I've read bits and pieces from this series, and am claiming a few volumes from spacedog's Manga/Graphic Novel bookbox
to fill in the gaps.
Later: Ooookay, this is one weird story - very dark, what with jealous girl Sae doing such horrible things that the "good guys" decide to teach her a lesson. But (surprise!) they wind up putting her in serious danger, though - Karma Houdini that Sae seems to be - she gets out of it in better shape than poor Momo does. I found most of the characters so unbelievable - Sae ridiculously evil, to the point of actually pulling Villain Laughs at times, and Momo ludicrously forgiving and awfully naive, and the guys running the gamut from anything-to-get-laid to love-you-forever-or-until-I-get-threatened. Wildly soap-opera, but this is set in high school, so it feels even worse than if the same things occurred on, say, Dynasty.
Actually, at one point in this book Momo *does* lay down the law to Sae - but Sae's too poisonous to take it without hitting back, and Momo can't keep holding on to hatred, however righteous. Oh, well, I guess I'm not the target audience for these...
[There's a TV Tropes page
on the series with some entertaining tidbits. There have been animated and live-action adaptations of the story, too.]
