Volumes: 5 (Hiatus)
In her exile to the east of the east of the east, Liselotte's rambunctious house attempts to coexist with the witch's forest. Hoping to break down the seal Vergue has cast, Anna ventures out on her own to pay the witch a visit. Despite a being hurt by humans in the past, can Anna convince Vergue to give people another chance, and to live among them again? Meanwhile, Lise is shocked by a familiar looking visitor surveying the nearby village...
There's a tentative relationship between Engetsu and Liselotte. Lise is trying hard with her unrelenting optimism, but Engetsu doesn't know her anymore. It's fun to see them getting to know each other, though. Lise tries so hard, with so much enthusiasm. Engetsu doesn't understand it, but he's starting to tease her, which is fun.
Engetsu tries to treat Lise here, show her something she's always wanted to be a part of. It doesn't go quite as either of them planned, though.
We also get to see some progress made with Vergue. He's headstrong and stubborn, and showed up first to ruin and get his revenge. Lise is starting to grow on him, though, and her mixed with Anna's smart wiles is forcing him to man up a bit. I am very intrigued by this change in Anna—I like it.
Near the end we get some more hints for Lise's brother—and we meet a new character. We've heard a lot about this one, but it should be interesting to see if she throws in some trouble.
And of course now this series is on Hiatus. I'm quite fond of it so far, and I hope she continues it soon.
