Loveless: v. 5 (Loveless (Tokyopop)) by Yun Kouga

Having been through a bit of philosophical exploration in volume 4, Yun Kouga now picks up the pace, and pushes along the plot of "Loveless". Ritsuka, determined to find out why Seimei was killed, chooses to skip school, and try to sleep all day so he can meet up with the representative of Septimal Moon at night.
