Amazing story! It got a little heated, then some action, and ended with an epic conclusion. What more could an avid reader ask for? Next book please!

Another excellent volume. In the first story "The Last's Waltz" Tsuzuki and Hisoka are sent out like Reapers to find out why a ballroom dancer has failed to die when she's been on the death list for months. Tsuzuki agrees to partner her in a final dance competition so that she can find peace before passing over. This one's a tad cheesy and the romance element Tsuzuki/Hisae (dancer) didn't really work for me, but the artwork's gorgeous and I loved the concept behind it.

It's the second 4 part stor

The second volume was even better than the first! The first story arc with Hisae was very bittersweet and touching, but I liked the second story arc of the book with Hijiri better. I knew I sensed some BL currents in the first volume ~ there are even more in the second! (Not complaining!) And the demon came SO close to revealing Tsuzuki's dark secret, I was on the edge of my seat! What could it be?!

Much stronger art- and character-wise than volume one. The Devil's Trill plotline is great fun (and extremely bloody--be warned). Possibly the best part of Yami no Matsuei is the fact that it seems totally aware of how silly it is, and plays up that self-awareness particularly successfully this time around. Quick, fun read.

iiiiiiinteresting. i sort of want a story where tsuzuki and hisoka have to help someone older than tsuzuki, i want to see if his trend for falling for like every person he interacts with still applies

there are some creepy assault bits here too, i'm still kinda wondering what i made of it the first time i read it. rereads man. interesting stuff. 3 stars

This volume gets a little stronger and a little bloodier (an impressive feat if you know the first volume.) The Devil's Trill storyline is a little wince-worthy when you try to actually think about what's going on and why. Again, it's also got a brief but triggery sexual assault scene (which managed to get WORSE after the fact >.< .

The Devil's Trill, that's a part of this manga, is one of the best arcs in this series. Great story, awesome character development, angst pure... Fantastic!
