Both touched by spirits called yokai, Kotoko and Kuro have gained unique superhuman powers. But to gain her powers Kotoko has given up an eye and a leg, and Kuro's personal life is in shambles. So when Kotoko suggests they team up to deal with renegades from the spirit world, Kuro doesn't have many other choices, but Kotoko might just have a few ulterior motives...
Man I've missed this series! I wasn't sure how this volume was going to go after things wrapped up in the last volume, but it was such a fun volume to get the series going again! I seriously, so badly ship Kuro and Kotoko and it was interesting seeing their relationship from someone else's perspective in the first chapter! On the one hand I kind of long for fluff with the two of them, but on the other...the relationship they have fits the two of them, and is kinda cute in it's own way. I mean Kuro was worried in his own little way, which was sweet and it was like "ah you do care, bless"and it does seem almost like he doesn't care sometimes.
This volume gives us another fascinating murder mystery with plenty of different theories that Kotoko talks us through and dismisses or pokes holes in as is her custom. I really love the way she presents all the options and then tears them down, and I love how its portrayed in the manga. With the final chapter it was fun to see someone else do the deducing and Kotoko take a backseat for that final chapter. It was a fun little twist.
While there isn't much action this volume, there's a lot of mystery and deductions as well as funny scenes and interactions between Kotoko and Kuro! I feel like after the Steel Lady Nanase case, this is a nice little volume to bridge the gap for whatever story arc is coming our way next!
