In many ways this was my favorite out of the three issues already out (but I feel like that’s gonna be the case for every new issue).
I can’t really make a coherent review this time but one thing I will say is that, if it wasn’t already clear from issue #2, this is really fucking queer and what else do you need to know really?
Things I loved (SPOILERS!!!):
🤺 We finally learn a bit more about school life! The different uniforms and dresscode for different events, the lack of privacy, the care packages, the awful food, who rooms with whom.
⚔️ Bobby and Nicholas being friends!!!
🤺 Coach telling Nicholas he’s the worst but also telling him he has potential
⚔️ Harvard “actually to blame for this” Lee
🤺 “You want me to tell coach we kissed and made up” NICHOLAS DO YOU EVEN HEAR YOURSELF
⚔️ I feel like we’re starting to learn a bit more about fencing which is great
🤺 NICHOLAS WAKING UP AT 4:30AM TO TRAIN AND FINDING SEIJI THERE
⚔️ “Do we need a line on the floor here too” Seiji pls
🤺 DANTE IS ALIVE AND WELL I’M SO RELIEVED
⚔️ Kally and Tanner are the real power couple
🤺 Also??? Kally is The Purest??? I love him so much
⚔️ BOBBY WITH BRAIDS I’M MELTING
🤺 Nicholas and Seiji doing the thing where they look at each other when the other one is not looking 👌🏻 good shit 👌🏻 right 👌🏻 there 👌🏻 good shit
⚔️ JAY YOU POOR SOUL HOW COME YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF AIDEN’S REPUTATION
🤺 Okay but that kiss was so pretty??? Imagine when it’s going to be Harvard in Jay’s spot wow that’s only gonna take 3837598 issues but I’m fine
⚔️ Aiden pls you could at least try to remember your hookup’s name
🤺 Is Harvard only being fake nice to Jay or????
⚔️ “I’ve known him since we were five” wow I already knew this but it made me emotional
🤺 Aiden casually hugging Harvard
⚔️ “He’s so good it hurts” oh Nicholas baby
🤺 “You can’t look at anyone else” OH NICHOLAS BABY
⚔️ The Bons gossiping are honestly so relatable and they speak to my soul
🤺 “So why is Seiji watching his match?” mmmmmmmh yeah Bons why tell me
⚔️ FINALLY SOME SEIJI INTERNAL MONOLOGUE and of course that’s where the issue ends cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool
🤺 “It doesn’t meant he’s…” HE’S WHAT SEIJI WHAT, good??
⚔️ I can’t believe Seiji, a Useless Gay, hasn’t stopped thinking about Nicholas for six months
Are you reading Fence? What did you think of this issue?
