Lenni Reviews: “Mao” Vol. 7, by Rumiko Takahashi

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

Old rivalries from Mao’s past come to light with even more exorcists from his days at the temple come back into his life.

This cast is getting big and I wonder if they’ll all finally get to the truth of what happened the night Mao was cursed and a bunch of people ended up dead. After all this buildup, I really hope the reveal lives up to it. This is an exciting volume and I have so many questions. Takahashi usually pulls everything together in her stories so I’m trying to trust the process. 4 out of 5.

Gosha and Yahya are in the Black Market where Legoshi prepares to work his way through the various gang leaders; starting with the Doku-gumi – a gang of Komodo dragons.

The action in this volume is top notch for this series. Even with Legoshi’s classic goofy moments, it’s a real page turner. It’s cool to read but I find it a little bit of a buzzkill for Legoshi to need to go through so many other people to get to Melon but it gives us a change to see what Legoshi has learned so far and apply it in combat. We did read through all that training he was doing so, it’s to see it pay off. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “Ghost Reaper Girl” Vol. 2, by Akissa Saiké

While Chloe seems to become an official reaper to help contain escaped souls, Nyarlathotep has some ulterior motives and plans working behind the scenes. As she adjusts to her new role, we meet other hunters including a necromancer with a deadly reanimated assistant.

The art is fantastic in the battle scenes. It’s easy to know what’s going on and exciting. Chloe is just the right mix of irreverent and serious when facing these scary spirits. With stories like this, the main character can be flat and angsty or too silly for the situation but Chloe has a good balance and natural reactions to all the crazy stuff she deals with now. This volume also rounds out the main cast and hits at the larger threat to come. I can see this shaping up to be a cool series. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “Call of the Night” Vol. 9, by Kotoyama

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

The secret we’ve been building up to in Nazuna’s past puts all vampire kind in danger as Uguisu sets her sights on killing Nazuna and her vampire friends and Ko as well.

I have to say Uguisu’s backstory and her dealings with vampires was not what I expected it to be but it’s interesting. It fits in well with the unique way vampires function in this universe. It presents a problem that makes me wonder if the solution will be satisfying to the plot. Uguisu is set on killing all the vampires and doesn’t fear putting crazy stunts in crowds of people. We’ll have to see what Nazuna decides to do in the next volume because all this exposure is clearly not a good thing. 4 out of 5.

Lenni Reviews: “Bleach 20th Anniversary Edition” Vol. 1 by Tite Kubo

Ichigo Kurosaki was born with the ability see ghosts but when a hollow attacks his family, he encounters Rujia Kuchiki; a soul reaper who battles malevolent spirits to save humanity.

While I have seen a lot of the anime, I never got around to reading the manga. I’m glad this is being re-released so it gives me a chance to experience it. I do like it; although I find it a bit shouty. Particularly Ichigo but that’s ok. It’s high protagonist energy and I expected it since I’m familiar with the show. And considering my previous knowledge, I already connect with the characters and have interest in the next volumes. The creature design is well done; they look dangerous and enough to provide a threat to our main duo. 4 out of 5.

Shiranui’s issues with Mao come to light and he demands that Mao a spell that manipulates lifespans.

This volume gives us some interesting insights about Byoki and his possible origins. There’s clearly some dark secrets in Mao’s old exorcist group that even with his missing memories taken into account, Mao may not have been aware of. There’s also some great action and cool use of the character’s powers. The villains are awesome, too. Very creative designs and abilities. 4 out of 5.
