Gugu is a young boy with terrible scars on his face who comes upon Fushi when he enters the shop where Gugu works. As the two grow closer due to the fact they are both “monsters,” Fushi finds he would like to stay instead of moving along as he normally does. Unfortunately, Fushi must face the fact that such happiness is fleeting.
The best parts of this volume for me were the scene with Gugu and Fushi. Watching them grow together is adorable but there is still the lingering shade of the hooded figure skulking after Fushi. I get the sad feeling Gugu and his friends won’t come out ok when he comes to claim whatever he wants from Fushi.
