Volume two builds on the tension from volume one, completing the first arc of the series about the homonculus lodged in Tokiko's side. The plot bumbles along, drawing on numerous shonen stereotypes, and after reading it, I couldn't quite remember it, because it reminded me of so many other things that I'd read. Like the male character dead-set on protecting the female lead. Always always always.

The most notable bit is Tokiko, because of her scar. Normally heroines are intensely beautiful, perfec

Recommends it for: Dedicated manga readers only
My wife made a "Junk Food" folder on her goodreads account. If there ever has been a book/series that fit that description to a tee, it's this one. Light, fluffy, silly, cute, but completely shallow and without any nutritious value. If a person was a dedicated manga reader and hadn't read this one, I'd suggest it. Otherwise, move on.

I decided to pick up the “New 52” (that reboot has been active for two years now, so we really ought to stop calling it that, I guess) issues of Superman. This comic is set five years after the ongoing Action Comics title by British comics writer Grant Morrison. In other words, while Morrison's work is set at the very beginning of “the age of heroes” - marked by the beginning of the careers of Superman and Batman – Superman is set five years later during the “present day”.

I was hesitant to pick

This volume is sparse on content--other than nice pictures of the battle between Karuki, Tokiko and the final Humunculus serving Papilion Mask. The last chapter or two after the battle with the final humunculus is over redeem the volume enough to get to three stars.

Shelves: manga
The second volume in the series concludes the first story arc. Kazuki and Tokiko race against time to find the creator. There are plenty of fight scenes in this volume, and some unexpected twists. We also get a better feel for the characters and their personalities. I found myself smiling a lot at the humor. All in all, good volume with a very, very beautiful ending.
