Reason for Reading: next in the series.

It's been a while since I read the last one so it took me a bit to get into this volume but this manga does start off with the list of characters and a brief "The Story So Far" which help to put you back into the plot. This volume is quite heavy with battles and the inside politics of the Yokai Clan. Rikuo has to prove his place as the leader of the clan while his grandfather is away and make his own loyalties within the clan rather than counting on existing ones. He is up against Tamazuki still, who finally shows his true Yokai form and Rikuo and he do battle one on one leaving the book ending on an intense note. Enjoyable as far as the action goes, though little happens with character development, there is only a small storyline involving one of his classmates and I'd like to see more mixture of the two. A fast read and a good ending which will have me reading vol. 6 right away. ( )

"Rikuo has successfully defended his classmates from the vicious Inugami's mad-dog attack. But that battle is just a hint of what's to come. The sinister Tamazuki has remained in his human form so far, but now he's unleashing his true form: a ferocious yokai leading the 88 Demons of Shikoku, a disciplined demon horde hell-bent on taking the Nura clan out. With Nurarihyon missing, Rikuo must step up as a warrior and a leader"--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
