Nomura Takashiro pops up to help Miyo in order for the research on the Hinamizawa Syndrome to continue; as if she is Miyo’s guardian angel. Of course, Nomura has objectives of her own and is likely just using Miyo to her own ends.
Meanwhile, Hanyu and Rika are still trying to prevent Rika’s murder by trying to convince the adults around her that Miyo intends to kill her but Hanyu and Rika have just one week to find help powerful enough to stop the organization behind Miyo and Nomura.
Rika and Hanyu have done a pretty good job fixing the problems from the other arcs which enables them to collect as many allies as possible so all of this looks like it may actually work! However, I don’t trust this series. I can see them pulling a bait and switch and everything goes wrong.
Sadly, I don’t give enough attention to the art here and I have to give it up to Karin. She draws crazy really well. Some of those expressions are seriously chilling. I give this volume a 4 out of 5.
