This volume is really focused on bringing the story forward. We learn about Anzai’s father, some program called a Hybrid Birth Plan that Anzai and Hans were a part of, Hans’ real name is revealed (but I like ‘Hans’ better), and the Devils are being hunted whether they’ve been attacking people or not.
I do love that a trans character in this manga isn’t treated any differently from anyone else; aside for being a Devil. And try as they might, the romance is still the least interesting part of this. Every time the story shifts to that, I start flipping through pages to get to the fun parts. It’s funny to see other reviewers say there’s not enough romance but for me, Anzai is pretty much a typical brooding bloodsucker so I think what’s going on around him is MUCH more interesting. I like this take on the vampire genre and look forward to seeing where it’s going next.
