Ken faces the Holy Emperor, a tyrant who kidnaps and enslaves children.

Now, I like this series and I understand that in order to be a threat, the villains have to actually show they’re dangerous but I’ve never been a fan of a lot of collateral damage surrounding the main conflict. And the main showdown didn’t even happen so this ends on a cliffhanger. It just didn’t seem as thrilling as other volumes; it just felt like disaster porn. 3.8 out of 5.

Stetson is a nightmare hunger who ends up on the trail of a serial killer who killed her daughter.

This is pretty wild and creative; gory if that’s not your thing. The art style takes some getting used to but I think it fits with how chaotic it all feels. Stetson is is a kickass lead and I want to see how it all plays out but it took two reads for me to get all the information and adjust to the drawing style. 3 out of 5.

Now that Coyote knows who Marleen really is, Marleen is put on house arrest to keep him away from Coyote while the wolves and wolf hunters conspire with their respective groups behind the scenes. Coyote takes a huge risk to try and rescue the man he loves.

While Coyote and Marleen are sweet and they have their spicy scenes, I am all about what is going on with the wolves gearing up to take on the mafia family that’s hunting them down. I am super excited to see all this come to a head (no dirty pun intended) in the next volume. 4 out of 5.

Chloe is making big bucks as a spirit hunter and ascending the ranks so she takes a more challenging job in direct competition with more experienced hunters and terrifying foes.

This volume has a ton of action and sets up a cool villain with some great potential to be a real threat. Chloe is still a great character with an engaging personality. Even though this is packed with a ton of information about new abilities, introducing the other hunters, and seeing them in battle, I like where this is going. 4 out of 5.

Ko and Nazuna have their final showdown with Kyoko, the vampire hunter.

The vampire hunter arc comes to an end and I’m mixed about adding the hunter as a permanent addition to the cast. It was written well but Kyoko did a lot of damage and it’s clear her story is far from over. This is taking some intriguing turns and I like how it’s all coming together. They keep the story going in an entertaining way. 4 out of 5.

The horrific witch hunt game comes to an end, leaving Arisu and his friends reeling from the traumatic and violent game. As they recover, they learn that not only some players are involved with the games, but dealers are running them behind the scenes and they’re about to begin the next stage.

Out of all the game so far, the witch hunt is my least favorite. It’s not as put together and diabolical as the previous games and much like when I watched the live action, I was glad it was over so we can get to more interesting stuff. While the pace slowed down a bit, this was still entertaining. 4 out of 5.

Asadora managed to drive away the creature on the coast of Japan but now, she’s forbidden to participate in any more dangerous flying and go back to being a student. But the government still wants her to assist, believing she is Japan’s only hope.

This volume is less actions focused to give the characters some time to breathe and give us a change to see them develop more. But I have no clue where this is all going. Will there be a huge monster battle? Will the creature just leave? Will we ever find out what the creature is or where it came from? It is cool that we see Asa’s friends doing their own thing but I also wonder if they’re gonna end up involved with this monster business. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “Orochi: The Perfect Edition” Vol. 3, by Kazuo Umezz

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

This volume contains two stories:

  • Stage: A young boy named Yuichi whose father is tragically killed in a hit and run spends his life looking for the culprit he calls The Morning Man.
  • Combat: Orochi encounters Tadashi Okabe who has a very nice father with a horrifically dark past.

This one is not as good as the others. Instead of feeling unease or creeped out, I was just angry at the injustice of it all. The first one is so convoluted and the second (while better) could have been tighter so it didn’t end on a cliffhanger. I still get a little of that creepy feeling but not nearly as much as the previous volumes. 3 out of 5.

Mao and his group work to uncover Yurako’s true identity and what really happened to Sana while also investigating the Kagami family; whose members are inexplicably committing violent acts. 

I like how the group members interact here and Nanaoka gets some great “screen” time; showing she’s more than competant when shit goes down. I hope we see more of that in the future. Her and Mao would make a great team in battle. 4 out of 5.

As he continues in his journey, Keiji encounters a young chick who sees him as a hero and his ex, Elizabeth. Despite Keiji’s loner nature, these two join him on his quest.

I have to comment on the creature design. The enemies are fantastic, insanely creepy and detailed. The addition of Elizabeth is great. She’s smart, funny, and gives Keiji a way to be understood by humans. This story is just wild madness but it’s good! Especially for such an off the wall concept, but it somehow works to be entertaining. 3.9 out of 5.
