Decent volume, and I like some of the new characters they introduced. However, I really feel like CLAMP rushed the Fuma & Kotari part of Kamui's plot here. It feels like the film handled Fuma and Kotari after Kamui's decision much more gradually then the manga is, which is saying something considering how rushed the movie was.

It's getting more and more interesting because the end of the world is coming and quick.
