Finally realize the reason-- no, scratch that-- *one* reason why vol 10 of Onmyouji makes no sense is that I don't have vol 9. Should have picked it up at bookoff, I suppose, but reading amazon and bk1 reviews of my missing volumes, with their perennial phrases 'hard to understand' and 'not easy to make out,' kind of makes me glad I diidn't.

So why am I trying to read vol 10 again? Oh, practice for Youmi 4, I suppose. Even if reading Okano does tend to induce a 'despair and die' frame of mind. OTOH I suppose I should be cheered that the people whose native language this is have no idea what she's saying either.
