Suzuki is so conflicted by his feelings for Sugiki that it's affecting his Latin dancing. But when Sugiki tries to teach him how to connect better with his female partner, he ends up strengthening the connection between the two men instead. As they grapple with their feelings for each other, an unexpected rival steps into view. Suzuki begins to realize what dancing truly means to him, but if he pursues his dream, will it cost him his relationship with Sugiki?
Poor old Suzuki is going through it with his feelings in this volume as he's trying to figure it all out and soon. Alongside coming to terms with his feelings, he also gets a bit of a wake up call/helping hand when it comes to his motivation to win and drive to succeed thanks to another dancer and rival that makes an appearance.
Suzuki spends a lot of this volume doing some self reflection and because of that we get to see some of his childhood, how he started dancing and so on which I was particularly interested in. This volume not only moves things in to place with the relationship, allowing Suzuki to come to terms with things so that it can progress forward, but it fleshes out his character a lot more. We also get to see some more of the relationship between he and his dance partner Aki, how they were paired together and the bond between them which I appreciated as well!
This volume takes the time to get the characters heads in to the right places for the upcoming competition, motivating them and getting them psyched up for it and it's sure to be a tense one! Now that Suzuki is ready to win, and determined to I can't wait to see him fight for what he wants!
