Nightfall enlists Twilight’s help on a new mission: retrieve a painting from a private collection that may have some secrets that could rekindle the war. In order to get their hands on it, they have to win an underground tennis tournament full of tricks and cheating. Nightfall has some ulterior motives though, and hopes to win Twilight over with her amazing skills so he leaves Yor behind. After the tournament, Nightfall challenges Yor to a tennis match in order to continue to prove her point, but Yor ends of shattering Nightfall’s racket! After tennis is over, it’s back to Anya trying to befriend Damien. The Imperial Scholar mixer is coming up, and without eight Stella Stars, neither Anya not Damien will have an invite, which also means Twilight won’t have a chance to meet and introduce himself to his main mission’s target. It’s time to take matters into his own hands!
The tennis tournament was a really fun side story that took Twilight away from the family for a moment, so readers who love Yor and Anya might be slightly disappointed with their reduced role in this story. As Anya is my favorite character, I was glad to get back to her and her involvement in the mission towards the end of this volume. Bond was a complete after-thought in this storyline, however. It’s seems like Endo can only have one major side character at a time and can’t balance all the side characters within one volume. If the pattern continues, thought, we will had another new character in volume 7, and there will possibly be more to bring Twilight away from his family again. The ending of this volume does bring it back to the main mission, so readers will be eagerly awaiting the 8th volume to see how Twilight gets everything back on track.
