Black Bird, Vol. 10 (Black Bird #10)
Reads R to L (Japanese Style).
The past returns to haunt Kyo and Misao when Kyo’ s long-lost father suddenly reappears. But the reunion is less than happy, for Lord Yo is suspected of murdering his wife! Misao learns the real story of the deadly incident, but it is hardly comforting. Should she tell Kyo about his mother’ s fate, or should she protect him from a truth he mi...more
In this volume, we learn more about Kyo's father and about his brother, Sho.
I was close to giving this volume only three stars because I hated how Kyo treated Misao. I've said before how much I dislike how he 'punishes' her, and he does it yet again in this volume. Why is he so jealous and rough with...more
I am so happy to report that Black Bird, Volume 10 returns to the root of this series, delivering an interesting story with depth. The feel of this volume is reminiscent of the earliest volumes that had character development and suspense to keep you mesmerized with the story. This is a vast improvement upon the last several volumes.
What makes this volume so interesting is the history of the two brothers, Sho and Kyo, and their parents. When Lord Yoh pops in for a surprise visit,...more
I’ve finished the Black Bird books that I bought… and I need more so, so bad. That ending was fricking amazing. Sakurakouji is an amazing storyteller. The world she creates is beautiful. Being a gifted artist is amazing, but also being blessed with the amazing gift of storytelling makes her a double-threat (I’m sure she’s a triple-threat, but I don’t know much about her). I love the tengus. They will forever hold a special place in my heart as one...more
I’m not sure if I was in a weird mood when I read the last vo...more
There were a couple of plot inconsistencies in this volume but who cares. The drama is crazy and the characters are getting so much more elaboration which is great.
One annoyance was Kyo. He flat out says sometimes he wants to treat Misao nice and make her smile, and other times he wants to be mean to her and mak...more
I enjoyed learning more about Kyo and Sho's parents, but I'm hoping...more
Misao sees somethings that other people can't, and if they could, they would be scared to death! Normally, the monsters would do small harmless things, such as pull her hair or jump on her bac. But on her sixteenth birthday, the creatures take it farther by trying to kill her, as her blood gave improve their lives.
However, luckily she's saved by a lost childhood friend who has returned. His name is Kyo Usui, but he has a dark secret too. He...more
There really isn't a plot in this story nor are there any character development within this manga series. Black Bird in a nutshell is the head of the Tengu clan named Kyo trying to kill anyone who gets in between him and Misao who is the Senka or the Holy Fruit just to get into her pants.
I wouldn't have a problem with this serie...more
He tried to rape her not once, but twice in this series. And sure he saved her life, but I don't think it makes up for the abductions and near rapes especially when he put her in the dangerous position to begin with.
It's hard for me to relate to Misao or even really like her. She ha...more
Misao learns the true story from Lord Yoh but, is this tragic story something Kyo needs to hear at this time? And to make matters worse, the Nue clan has targeted Kyo's single weakness-- Misao!
I see Kyo and Misao dont' really care anymore about what will happen to her now that they're officially "married" (or whatever). It makes me a little sad, but then of course the evil part of me grins devilishly at the outcome that could possibly be very sad and depressing. I can't wait to see!!
And really? Was anyone surprised that it was (view spoiler)[Sho who annihilated the Nue clan? (hide spoiler)] Cuz I wasn't surprised at all. Just Saiyn. ;-)
P.S. I LOVE love...more
Yet as i read vol 10 today, i'm interested in how things are going to turn out again. Hope things go well!
