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.

After Oya rescues Yrui from Jin – a detective – Yuri sees just how violent Oya and his world can be and wants Oya to be safe. But Oya has other plans for Jin, who is in love with Yuri and wants to save her.

Like with the other conflicts in this series, the Jin stuff gets wrapped up quick and the rest of the volume is just Oya and Yuri being in love and having sex. The main thing that changes is the switch to Yuri being more dominate while Oya is recovering from his injury. 2.7 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.

This series follows four teenage boys as they find their way through romance and relationships in high school.

In this volume, we focus on Natsuki, who is hoping to spend Christmas Eve with his friends who all have girlfriends. This is very slice of life, light, and breezy with some laughs. Definitely a book that’s something to kick back for a relaxing read with a cast of characters that are all pretty likeable. I found myself rooting for them to be happy. The art is classic and expressive with some fun details. 3 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.

Yagyu and Satomi start to make plans for Christmas and they head into their first Valentine’s as a couple. Tatsukawa, who works with Satomi, is looking like he will interfere with their relationship.

This series is perfect if you want some low (well, more like “no”) angst romance. The main couple is cute and precious but other than young people being in love for the first time, there isn’t a lot of conflict here so, it’s very slice of life. Cute but a little fluffy for my tastes. 3.7 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.

Ethan is working hard to pay down his debt and comes across Mike in the laundromat one night. Intrigued by the man, Ethan tries to talk to him but is rebuffed, only for Mike to show up at Ethan’s door injured from a fight. Ethan offers to let Mike stay with him to recover, giving the pair time to grow closer.

This is the classic dynamic of one super loving and emotive partner and one brusque and stubborn partner. It’s not bad for a quick read. This tells the story well, has some heat, and is pretty low on the angst. The main couple has good chemistry but it’s a little shallow in the way that more pages to tell their stories and get together would have really helped this out. 3.5 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.
