Any fan of Buffy, or detractor actually, cannot miss the fact that all of the characters can be quite whiny. Now, while Buffy wasn't my favorite show, I did enjoy it overall, but, when everyone got all emo, it definitely got less fun. This volume is like one of those series of episodes. There are a couple of funny moments, but mostly it's complaining and sadness.

Buffy and Faith are doing their usual battle over who's more alone (a pretty easy win for Faith I should think). Of course, Faith also, when feeling alone, thinks back on the only time she felt loved, which would be when she was working with Mr. Creeper-Face Mayor. She won't take Robin's calls, even though he's all interested, but she desperately wants a friend. Okay, whatever Faith.

Willow's doing the "I miss my dead ex girlfriend" waltz, disguised as an "I am protecting my current girlfriend by keeping her from my friends" foxtrot. Not buying it, Willow. Dawn, as always, is whining, because she's still a giant who made imprudent sexual decisions. From what I here, she's got more coming, although that will be logistically difficult until she gets de-gianted.

This volume wasn't bad exactly, but it was doing a lot of setup. There are only eight volumes in the season, which will be over really quickly, so it's just frustrating to read through all the background. Still, I am totally ready for volume 3.

It gets better! It also took me a while to get used to them all being animated. I am totally fine with it now, but was that weird for you? Also, some of them in comic form just don't cut it for me.
