Read full description of the books:
In my review of Eerie Queerie! vol. 3 I said that I mostly liked it but had huge problems with certain aspects of the stories, particularly aspects of the treatment of Mikuni, Kanau, and Ichi. Gosh, I hope the author fixes those three in the final volume, #4!
Volume 4 continues on with those characters in exactly the way I dislike, and it resolves almost nothing. In fact, it brought back Itsuki and Shino to unresolve the closure on their story that we seemed to get in volume 3. Volume 4's postscript said that the author is working on sequels, but I don't know if Tokyopop will publish those. Anyone?
Mitsuo finally says to Hasunuma that he loves him. It only took a whole volume of sub-Three's Company-style misunderstandings to get there.
Mikuni is still perverted and abusive, getting absolutely no comeuppance here. In fact, even through the end he's screwing with Mitsuo and Hasunuma's heads as well as messing up their attempts at a sex life. That really sucks. Mitsuo's cluelessness is looking ever more like stupidity as he continues to trust Mikuni's advice despite all the evidence that the man is evil.
It's hard for me to care about stupid characters.
Of course, nobody in this volume seems to care about consent, since Ichiro is making sex dolls of Mikuni that he hoped would transfer the feeling of what he was doing to it to the real Mikuni, who has no interest in him whatsoever. That is really icky. His brother Niro is ready to cart off and have his way with Mitsuo by force when he thought Mitsuo was a girl. (Mitsuo was in disguise in a French maid uniform and ponytails. Which was cute, until the scary "you must be my bride, let's skip to the honeymoon" stuff.) But the Sanjaya family being made up of creepy guys who refuse to take No for an answer doesn't excuse Mikuni, who uses his position of power and authority to do things to young men he fancies.
Kanau is still a slave/doll to Mikuni. In volume 4, he's being stuffed into a tiny bottle on occasions to accompany Mikuni on exorcisms and is obviously not informed of what's going on because he's terrified. Yes, he looks cute and wonderfully perverse in his kitty/French maid outfit, but he's really being abused. And no one cares. (I need a kitty Kanau icon with appropriate text. I just have no hope of getting one.)
Ichi is barely here. In one panel, he has a moment of misery in which he wonders if he's just a pawn to Hasunuma and Mitsuo. The poor guy is coming to realize that he has only a tiny role in the Mitsuo and Hasunuma Show. The author turns his hair white at the end as a joke. I like him, and he's being neglected.
Mind you, there's also some really fun stuff in here. Mitsuo is dorky-cute in his French maid drag, and I liked his fake ponytails reacting to his emotional state. Some of the dialogue is insane but in an enjoyable way. Mitsuo's growing attraction to Hasunuma is presented in a hot and very nicely sensual way. Itsuki in a French maid's outfit killed me, especially his hair. The author can still be very funny.
But most of the volume has Mikuni playing head games with Mitsuo and Hasunuma, worsening and dragging out the "I can't tell him I love him!" crap to ridiculous lengths. The Sanjaya brothers seem to be there for laughs but actually creep me out. Characters I like are dealt with in a very cavalier way. Mitsuo's innocence crosses the line into outright stupidity. There's no resolution whatsoever.
I liked the premise the series started out with--possession, school life, Mitsuo helping spirits--but it derailed all too quickly into this instead.
It's very disappointing to me.
