After the phenomenally rich-in-plot "Beyond the Looking-Glass" the Urasawa allows us to take in the once again overturned setup of the series with "Cross-counter" which is a bit lighter on plot and slower on pace than is the norm for the series. The focus is still very much on the characters and we do indeed get gradually forward in the story all the time.

We find out what has happened to some of the protagonist after the dramatic events of "Expo Hurray" and get to know more about our latest hero

Slower in pace than last volume, which actually makes me enjoy it more. Urazawa presents us with a great dystopic future, and weaves back an forth between multiple time eras seemingly effortlessly. And he now also juggles a great many major characters without the storyline becoming muddled. A great feat indeed.
