Knives get crazier, and starts to have flashbacks/memories from all these plants he's fusing with. We also get some insight into the Eye of Micheal and an awesome Wolfwood spin-off! Loved this volume : )

Maybe 3 1/2 stars

In this volume we learn more about Wolfwood's background, and how he is tied into this whole mess. Knives is getting crazier and more powerful. Vash may be our only hope for the survival of the human race.

Hmm... I was pretty lost at the beginning of the book. I'm not entirely sure what Knives is doing. But, Wolfwood's mysterious identity was finally revealed! I also really loved the Wolfwood spin-off at the end!

More mysteries abound I'm sure as I venture into volume 9!

This is probably the strongest installmentso far. Knives continues his ascent into godhood and his descent into madness (reminds me of Kefka).
