This is an ongoing series so this review is likely to contain spoilers for the previous volumes and of course the current one I'm writing about.
How am I on Volume Seventeen already?
This series ups the stakes with every instalment, there are so many reveals and twists that quite often I'm left thinking oh my god after I've finished the volume. This one was no exception.
In this Yu faces off against another Seraph and inches closer and closer to becoming less human. Not that he ever really was, to begin with as we find out in here. It's hinted at that he and Mika have had a predetermined role to play in all the events that have been unfolding. One that dates back to their days in the orphanage.
As does one of my favourite characters, Shinoa. She seems to be battling with her demon, a creature that has been after her family since before her birth. I'd always wanted to learn more about her. She was always a mystery but has always demonstrated an unshakeable will. Unfortunately, making her all the more tempting to her demon.
I do think Yu's adage of must save family and everyone is family is beginning to wear a little. I get that it's fundamental to his character but at this point, we all know that.
