[Warning: I've spoiler tagged this review, but I've done so on the assumption that you've either read the previous volumes or don't care about spoilers for previous volumes.]
Tsubasa goes back to her old school after Arisa shows her a letter Midori gave her indicating that (view spoiler)[he plans to come clean about his crimes after the summit allows him to see his mother again. But Tsubasa wonders if that's true, and so she goes to the orphanage where Midori lived since he was abandoned at age 3. She learns that he was a twin too, and Akari, his twin, died after their mom abandoned them for more than a month. She had trained them to fear going outside, and so they didn't try to leave until it was too late. Tsubasa decides that what Midori must really want out of this summit is revenge against his mother, so she tricks Arisa and takes her place again. But Midori knows immediately that it's her. It turns out that he already knows where his mom is, and his true goal is to get revenge against the entire world. (hide spoiler)]
This series is like a lower quality version of Naoki Urasawa's Monster. That series had its own issues when it came to melodrama and dragging on longer than it should have, but Urasawa's Johan was smarter and more intense than Ando's Midori could ever dream of being.
I just want to shake Arisa. When given a choice, she always opts to stay with horrible people and then wallows in her own misery. The only reason she was separated from her sister and living with her horrible mother was because she didn't want her mother to get lonely - she chose to stay with her mother (was this an inconsistency on Ando's part? because I don't recall the sisters being given a choice at all, and yet this volume definitely indicates that Arisa could have lived with her dad and sister instead). And she chose (view spoiler)[to stay with Midori, even knowing that he was a murderous and messed up little monster.
Even if Akari died of neglect, that's no excuse for Midori injuring and murdering people and Arisa and Tsubasa opting not to report it to anybody. Does no one remember the dead body? And the multiple badly injured students, some of whom could have died if things had gone a little differently? (hide spoiler)]
I took terrible notes for this series and somehow forgot to say which volume had the short starring Mariko, Arisa's friend, but a little googling tells me it was probably this one. It was probably the best thing in the entire series, a sort of horror comedy. Granted, Mariko was super disturbing, as was her horrible teacher, who deliberately arranged for low-performing students to be bullied so they'd leave his class and stop making him look bad, but I could tell that Ando does much better with comedy that she does with a straighter mystery/thriller series. This short did make Mariko's bittersweet departure feel even more "off," though. Mariko didn't need someone like Tsubasa to decide they liked her just as she is - instead, what she needed was for someone to help her learn how to interact with people in a more healthy way, rather than obsess about them.
