    shout to that scene where Nicholas has no idea how to start a conversation with Seiji. That's like me with every person, ever. 3.5 stars

    Sweet, but these comics are reeeallly short. Cover to cover, it would take me under 5 minutes even if I pause to enjoy the artwork, but considering the previews reveal half the comic and there are 6 pages of promo material at the end, I finish it in about 2. I wish they'd make these longer, especially for the price. Still, it's CS Pacat and she can have my money anytime any place. :)

    This issue had some very entertaining moments in store. Some made me cheer, some fangirl, some feel sorry. But most of all, I liked which message this installment delivered and well, considering the next issue once had been meant to be the end of this series, I can see what C.S. Pacat had in mind and that this would have been a satisfying outcome. I’m glad, though, we’ll get more in form of graphic novels. Besides, I’m also relieved the try-outs are almost over and I hope for the scenery to leav This issue had some very entertaining moments in store. Some made me cheer, some fangirl, some feel sorry. But most of all, I liked which message this installment delivered and well, considering the next issue once had been meant to be the end of this series, I can see what C.S. Pacat had in mind and that this would have been a satisfying outcome. I’m glad, though, we’ll get more in form of graphic novels. Besides, I’m also relieved the try-outs are almost over and I hope for the scenery to leave the gym behind and to see the protagonists in other environments as well. Anyways, let’s get into detail.....This issue’s bout was between Aiden and Jay Jones (a.k.a. the boy we’ve encountered in issue 3 who was bumped by Aiden and still isn’t over it — poor Ray) and no one should be surprised about the outcome. The actual delight about this is how Jay brought misfortune onto himself: Aiden stepmother Alice left and Harvard feels the need to comfort Aiden. Since no one knows Aiden better than Harvard, I think he must internally know how Aiden truly feels about being neglected by his family, though, of course, Aiden doesn’t show it. Harvard’s words for him are the sweetest and I loved that scene so much. “I am here. [...] I believe in you.” Awwww! And then Jay comes and is obviously still furious. But while Harvard and Aiden maybe didn’t realize their feelings for each other yet, or maybe each of them took a secret oath to himself to keep quiet about his personal feelings not wanting to ruin their friendship or whatever it is between them...., I came to wonder, what do their comrades see in them? Perhaps I’m overreacting to a statement made in rage. Anyways, Jay’s words and Aiden’s and Harvard’s reactions still made me laugh very much!Another moment which made me crack up was created by Nicholas and Seiji bring oblivious dorks! (They’re truly so cute and ...pure!) It’s so charming how they both don’t understand a single thing Eugene says. “I don’t know.” — “I don’t know either.” And Eugene doesn’t even tell them! I as fangirl and shipper at heart, though I don’t really ship Nicholas x Seiji very much, couldn’t help but root: Yesss, figure it out! Soon! Those words were just too well chosen by C.S. Pacat to not take that bait! //insert applauseHowever, time to focus on Eugene himself. In this issue we learn more about him and how he isn’t so very different from Nicholas. His mother has to work hard to earn the money so Eugene can attend Kings Row, he also has a loving family and siblings who look up to him but most of all he’s always dreamt to become a great fencer and he never loses his optimism and motivation to improve and fight more. I’m glad to have gotten to know this side of him and I like him more now than I did before. Still, the best was when he wrote that letter to their coach. It was so heart-warming of him to step back, so Nicholas could continue attending Kings Row. I couldn’t have been prouder of him. I also couldn’t have been prouder of Nicholas too who was willing to exactly do the same. They are so wonderful characters. Plus, their coach’s answer was the best answer she could have given: This should be an ideal to anyone and I love the fact that this story includes it. They’re a team and I hope to witness so many more team-moments in the future installments. Here we also see what sets the standards for Kings Row fencing and maybe what’ll be their advantage against Exton. Maybe.Anyways, this is it. As reader I realize how important Kings Row is, can and will be for Nicholas (as main character). It’s not only his wish to fence and feel comparable to Jesse and therefore good enough for his father to be worthy — which, by the way, is a mindset I’d like knock off his head — but to him Kings Row has also become a home with friends who share his interest in fencing, who some more, some less are like him, most of all who accept him the way he is. Even Seiji. Nicholas feels at home and this is why he seemed to cry, or at least close to crying when he thought he didn’t make the team. Even more so, this is why he looked so stunned with shiny eyes: I think he’s not very accustomed to being praised and to having someone be proud him. As much as this made me smile fondly, as much it made my heart feel heavy and sad.

    After that awesome ending in #10, I was expecting so much more interaction between Nick and Seiji, but that was just wishful thinking. They are awkward as hell and have no clue how to converse with each other and it's hilarious.I didn't really have any opinion about Eugene before but OMG he is so sweet. His family is super cute and they are so supportive of him. Gene's passion for fencing really came through and I could totally see the similarities between him and Nick.And that ending was just s After that awesome ending in #10, I was expecting so much more interaction between Nick and Seiji, but that was just wishful thinking.

Nick and Eugene are such adorable sweethearts and I want both of them to make the team though it's not possible 😢😢😢Goodreads says there is only one more issue and how is that even possible...!!!! It's already difficult to wait a month to know who makes it to the team and if I have to wait more to actually see some progress in Nick and Seiji's relationship, that's gonna be hell 😠😠😠

    Honestly, I thought Eugene was an asshole and now I kind of love him. Also, I might have cried a little bit because I got emotional and I love Nicholas a lot.

    These issues are so short and this one does nothing to move the plot forward, BUT it gave me the feels and I laughed many times, so yeah, 5 stars.

Además, entre Eugene y Nicholas, ambos hicieron morirme de ternura y ya lo he dicho pero es necesario repetirlo: amo a la Couch.En verdad Nicholas ha logrado llegarme, incluso aunque antes no fuera tanto de mi agrado, ahora me encanta como personaje y sobre todo su personalidad, metas e ilusiones, la forma en que se le rompe el corazón al saber que no formar ¡¡¡El mejor número hasta ahora!!!

Entre él, Aiden, Seiji y Bobby, mi vida está completa, gracias C.S. Pacat y las ilustraciones de JohannaTheMad, Fence es una historia que jamás me hubiera imaginado leer y que sin embargo disfruto un montón cada número.

    I bet Nicholas is going to make the team, because he's the underdog and that's how these stories pan out.I will be utterly surprised if he loses this match.

    Probably 3.5 stars cos this was WAY TOO SHORT, CAN FULL LENGTH GRAPHIC NOVELS COME OUT ALREADY????? Finally the fact that there is a reserve comes to play cos this entire time I've been like wtf there are 4 on the og team why does coach keep saying only 3 boys?? Also Nicholas and Eugene both doing that is adorable 😆😆Nicholas and Seiji's "I don't know" at Eugene's "It's because they, you know" is hilarious 😂😂😂I just need more of these boys and fencing and making the team and for the plot to actua Probably 3.5 stars cos this was WAY TOO SHORT, CAN FULL LENGTH GRAPHIC NOVELS COME OUT ALREADY?????

    So, I love these boys. All of them. They are all wonderful (I'm not talking to Aiden until he stops being mean (tm), though. Ok, who am I even kidding here, he's still my child). I would die for Nicholas Cox anytime. I'm soft. What else is new. Can I have the next issue right now. Please.

    No lie, I'm actually about to cry.This issue had so much PAIN in it, and it totally didn't seem like it would go in that direction when it opened on Nicholas and Seiji's adorable awkwardness. Jay and Nicholas and Eugene... I just want to give them all hugs! This series is so good at making me love even the most seemingly minor characters, and that deserves serious recognition and praise.Besides all the sads, there were also the happy touching moments, like both Nicholas and Eugene vouching for t No lie, I'm actually about to cry.This issue had so much PAIN in it, and it totally didn't seem like it would go in that direction when it opened on Nicholas and Seiji's adorable awkwardness.

But someone! Seriously! Needs! To! Smack! That! Soggy! Celery!And then immediately hug him and help him through his abandonment issues.(Harvard, it's up to you my guy.)

    I've decided to stop rating issues of Fence because i feel they are too short to base an actual rating off of. also, please vote for these on the goodreads choice awards for the graphic novel category!! Awww, Eugene! That was kinda a deus ex machina , but i'm honestly not mad. Seeing how these boys' passion and hard work go unrewarded is so heartbreaking. i wish i had a lot more of this story available for me to read, but sadly, i'm stuck reading short snippets of it once a month.
