Reseña completa---

El tomo anterior fue bastante revelador en cuanto a los 8 Grandes, especialmente con Hoki y Zenki, pero en este tomo veremos las razones de porque Hoki le tiene tantísimo cariño a Kyo, y una vez que nos alejamos de los 8 grandes vamos a ver un encuentro entre Misao y Sho que será cardíaco, este tomo tiene muchísimas emociones y fangirleo. Vamos por partes, que me emociono y luego ni yo me entiendo, en el tomo anterior nos quedamos con la aldea Tengu en con

I think it's time for this series to wrap up and call it quits. Black Bird, Vol. 13 is a frustrating hot mess of pathetic characters whom I so badly want to konk their heads against the wall. I have hit my limit with Misao and cannot tolerate this dimwit any longer. If not for the Daitengu, I would probably stop reading this series.

The betrayal of the last volume is resolved in the most anti-climatic, convenient way. (view spoiler)
Hmmmm...not to sure about this installment. The climax from volume 12 was EASILY solved and tied up in a pretty bow on the first page. And then the rest of the installment was mostly just Misao's angst and the same worries she always has. Why can no one understand that Kyo wants them around he likes and trusts them?? Why does everyone think they must be of use to Kyo otherwise they should be dead??? I mean seriously that's pretty effed up.

Also the cliffhanger to the end of this installment was

Shou just... he's the kikyou of this manga. Decaying, shouldn't have been revived in the first place, nobody likes him, shows up just to be an annoyance (especially to the main couple)...

Most of the chapters were kinda meh, but what made me raise the rating was that ending. SAVAGE!!

Okay, talk about a cliffhanger. WTF? Now I just have to read the next part...

BTW, this series is BRILLIANT.

Oficialmente Misao me desespera. Sólo quiero que ya termine la historia, se ha vuelto muy aburrida esta "pelea de hermanos"

A really emotional story throughout this entire volume. And when I thought that cliffhanger couldn't get any worse - I was wrong.

This review will be the same for all of them-- excluding book seventeen and eighteen-- as I'm going to briefly review books 1-16

I've wanted to read this manga for quite some time, and once I started reading it like a few weeks ago. I couldn't stop. Despite what anyone says, I love this manga. I love the artwork. I love the main character's romance. I love the plot line. And I love all of the characters that make up this manga. There's a lot of people who've said that Hime-sama, the main characte

I can’t tell if things are winding down with this series or if it’s just moving toward a new conflict. I have two more volumes to read of what has already been released, and I know another volume is coming out soon or has come out recently. I guess I’ll just keep reading and see. It’s nice to know I’m catching up though. In the previous volume, Hoki was on his way to challenge Sho after he tried to take down the Daitengu. Of course, that’s basically a suicide mission so Kyo is pitching a fit, bu ...more

What is with this trend nowadays of manga series that cannot wrap up gracefully?! Do they all have to spiral down into an unrecognizable mess?

There were so many eyeroll-worthy, ridiculously convenient occurances in this volume that I wanted to throw it across the room. Every last twist of intrigue and potential interest raised in the previous installment was hand-waved away with absolutely no consequence. People literally appeared out of thin air to save other people just in the nick of time...i

'Misao is the bride of prophecy whose blood gives power to the demon who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves - by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...'

In this volume, the storyline with Hoki came to a close and the storyline with Sho continued. Oh, Sho, you break my heart.

For some reason, it didn't feel as though very much happened in this volume, even though there was quite a bit of action. I don't know. The plot didn't move along as much as it cou

Wow things are getting so intense!! I am gobbling up this series! I've been trying to read Claymore alongside this but when I finish a volume, I immediately start the next one, pushing Claymore to the side. I better just pick up the 5th volume of Claymore and force myself to read it otherwise it'll have to wait until I finish volume 16 of this series!

Man, poor Sho! I love when the bad guys get humanized and you're forced to pity them and feel sorry for them. That is why I love
Hoki returns from Sho's side, mortally wounded by him, and tells Kyo and the Eight Daitengu of what he has learned while playing as Sho's aide.
One very important detail is that it seems Sho's health is waning and that he may have a fatal flaw that will make him easy to defeat when planned in accordance to one of Sho's attacks.
But a monkey wrench has been thrown in their plans when Misao is suddenly trapped inside the shield that Sho had built with no one else with her but Sho himself.

Dana Al-Basha دانة الباشا
For some reason this series is losing it's charm... I was SO bored reading this volume. Misao is just driving me insane with all her weakness and I-want-to-be-an-angel act. You love Kyo, let it rest at that. I hoped that when Kyo and Misao finally did it something suspenseful and strong would happen but the series is dragging! I think it's time for the author to wrap it up!

Dani - Perspective of a Writer
The flow of Sho and Kyo and their relationship is very intriguing. I love how the Japanese love to explore this idea of two people being on opposing sides while wanting the same things and having the same purpose. I don't always agree with Misao's choices but I feel like she does what she can to be true to her history with these two men. I'm a little puzzled why this is the direction of the story but its not necessarily a bad direction either.

BOTTOM LINE: Sho is the villain and an ally.

Misao is so stupid sometimes. I understand wanting everything to work out good and everyone getting along, but life isn't like that. She is incredibly naive and puts the entire clan in danger because of it. And in this volume, she make a big mistake- quite the betrayal.

We finally end with the battle between Sho and Kyo- and what a cliffhanger!

Series Review: This series doesn't look like much in the beginning but trust me it soon shows it's true potential. This manga is gripping and thrilling while never losing its romantic side. As always manga is rated for a reason and this is really for older teens and up due to some semi graphic content, however I really recommend giving this manga a try!

That's... That was... Who was... I don't... But she... But... No... Kanoko wouldn't do that to me... This is all some sick joke right?

I really hope (view spoiler) Does that make me morbid or just overly-attached and invested in these books and these characters and this world? ._.

Amanda [Novel Addiction]
I don't want to like this series anymore. I'm getting tired of seeing different versions of the same story line play out over and over again. That said, I'm still so invested in the series that I can't stop, at least not yet. I want to know what happens!
