Twin Spica, Volume 06: 07/09/12
Twin Spica Volume 06 by Kou Yaginuma resolves the cliff hanger of Asumi and her friends racing to the goal from their escape pods dumped into the nearby forest. It also introduces more glimpses into the history of the Lion and the mystery of Mr. Lion's on going friendship with Asumi.
Asumi risks her own success in the program by mounting a search party for one of their missing classmates. It's an unexpected turn of events and something that takes even the test designers by surprise.
The survival course complete, the lessons return to school. Students learn how to fix things from spare and ill fitting parts, and take their midterms. Asumi, though, isn't quite the perfect student she hopes to be.
There's also some family drama with the boy everyone believes is rich. His father isn't pleased with his choice of career and has cut all ties with him. Can he keep going in the program? Where is he going to stay? How is he going to pay for his education?
Those questions though will be answered in Volume 07.
