Read full description of the books Kamisama Kiss, Vol. 18:"A Yokai's eyes are always clear like glass. Neither good nor evil exists in them. Their eyes reflect their true intentions."
If you have triggers, please be careful with this volume. Chapter 107 is very controversial and I believe this was handled maturely, but it will make some people very uncomfortable. Nanami is not raped, but she does get assaulted by Kirihito, and it is very hard to read for the few panels that are presented.
Nanami has been growing as a character, and as such, I was expecting something to test her greatly. This is one of the darkest volumes Kamisama Kiss has presented. That gorgeous cover I praised earlier before reading disguises a volume that has a very controversial chapter.
It begins with Tomoe and Nanami going to school and both of them realizing that in order to become a part of society, your academic standing holds a lot of power of you. This is very true in Japanese culture. Nanami wants to go to her first and last school trip with her class and after Mikage demands that she score 80% on all her tests to go, she studies diligently. We get to see Tomoe's thoughts regarding Nanami which adds a lot to their relationship. And it looks like Ami x Kurama might happen :D
Nanami realizes that even if they aren't going on dates just being with the person you love is enough.
Then the volume changes when Nanami leaves with her class. A storm is brewing and their flights are cancelled. When Ami is kidnapped by Unari, claiming that Kirihito has stolen the Robe of Feathers from her, Nanami must agree to return it lest Ami remain a prisoner. The friends Nanami has are a great example of true friends that I wish more shoujo had. It's positive and realistic.
Kirihito's life is slipping and he needs to get his body back. With the Robe of Feathers he can do so, but he is dying. He asks that Nanami be taken to him. Only she can help preserve what little life he has left-but in doing so, Nanami will likely die. Nanami is not stupid. She would do what any person would given her situation. She is forced to help him, and from there, the controversial moment I mentioned happens.
The way it was handled is to let the readers realize that Kirihito/Akura-Oh is NOT a good person. If you were a fan of him like I was, it finally is clear that he will never change. He is selfish, vain and a brat. And I can guarantee you that this pairing will never happen. I don't understand why fans assume that any forced kiss or something like that means love. That is sexual assault, and the author makes it clear to the reader that this is not something we should be praising in manga. So many shoujo glamorize assault as being love, but this series draws the line. Nanami is not just kissed here. I will not go into details, but if you still ship these two, I cannot agree with you.
If he were to start changing his life, doing his best to right his wrongs, etc. then I could consider him in a positive light. In volume 7 we saw that he was dealing with a lot of turmoil and I was invested in him. But he shows his true colors too many times later on for me to root for him.
I am so glad that this series is not glorifying harassment or trying to make d-bag guys out to be love interests. This is a great example of a shoujo series that does it right.
Me wants a cover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
