Animeland vol. 10, Carla Cino, 12 April 2008 :
Voici le dernier volet des aventures d’Ichijo aux parfums d’ambiguïté. Comme nous le laissait entendre le neuvième volume, la fin de L’Infirmerie après les cours est bourrée de surprises. En effet, Setona MIZUSHIRO parvient une fois de plus à nous surprendre avec son scénario complètement barré. Ichijo, Sô et tous les autres élèves participant aux cours particuliers dans l’infirmerie ont-ils vraiment la destinée qu’on leur prêtait ? On a été totalement séduit par cette fin désarçonnante ainsi que par la série dans son ensemble. Depuis le début, la mangaka s’est amusée à brouiller les pistes pour que le lecteur ne sache, jusqu’au bout, sur quel pied danser. Et le fait de ne pas savoir ce qui nous attend au détour de chaque page rend, à nos yeux, cette série palpitante.
Here the last part of Ichijo's perfumed with ambiguity adventures. As volume 9 lets us know, the end of After School Nightmare is full of surprises. As Setona MIZUSHIRO surprises us once more with her completely crazy scenario/story. Do Ichijo, Sou and every students participating to the special courses in the infirmary will really have the destiny that was said their?
We have been completely seduced by this dumbfounded ending and also be the series as a whole. From the beginning, the mangaka amused herself to blurry the trails so that the reader doesn't till the very end on which feet to dance. And the fact to not know what awaits us in the next page makes to our eyes this series palpitating.

"Perfumed with ambiguity" doesn't really work as an English idiom, so I picked the closest scent-based metaphor that does. —Quasirandom (talk) 14:25, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
Wow how fast. That would do. That series got a positive critical reception in France that why i remembered that one ;) --KrebMarkt 15:58, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
Got pretty good reception in the States as well. Deservedly. —Quasirandom (talk) 22:43, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
