As we learn more about our characters, it seems every single one of them has some dark secrets and reasons to want to keep others from contacting anyone outside the village. But who are the strange men in suits keeping them from leaving and how does Mion know them?
So, now Mion is a badass swordswoman? I’m down for that but, how random.
This and the previous volume may not really be considered part of the main mystery but it is a cool little story. If you’re familiar with the classic railway murder trope, that’s the feel of this story arc with the added bit that the town and Mion can make the dead talk…
This was off pace from the morbidity of the rest of the series but I liked it. Every series has its filler and as far as filler goes, I had fun and enjoyed the ride. 4 out of 5.
