I wasn't sure after the first volume if I'd carry on with this series - clearly I have and I'm glad I did so.
This volume was far better than the first. Each seems to have four/five separate stories with an overriding plot. In this volume we are introduced to a new character by the name of Yukari Sendo. A young witch often picked on by her classmates for being less of a monster. As a result, she uses her magic to be a pest and inflict harm on those who do her wrong.
Although this looks very child friendly from the cover, if we ignore the ridiculously short skirt that is, Rosario + Vampire is definitely for older readers. There is some suggestive mature content, abusive behaviour and slut shaming. I would suggest a reading age of fifteen plus.
I was very happy to see the overall plot move forward in this volume. I was starting to think it wasn't going to by the third story and it started to feel stagnant. Finally, though, we're starting to get some semblance of plot. A new villain was introduced but was shrouded in shadow. I'm intrigued to see where this new development goes.
