This series is still dropping names all over the place like the mean something, but they aren't really going to explain anything so EVERYTHING remains all confusing. Continuing to also rain characters down from the sky and explain none of them. ( )

At this point in the series, Break looks like a creepy user, Vincent is just plain creepy (but also a devoted brother?), and Gil is obsessed with Oz. And Oz is an idiot who throws himself into danger without a single thought.

Again, aspects of Philippe's story and the girl contractor in the previous volume should probably have been combined. Philippe and his father's story is a bit stronger than the girl contractor's, but it still falls flat in the end. Philippe, having served his purpose, ends up being completely forgotten, which doesn't gel well with Mochizuki's efforts to make both us and Oz care about him at least a little. Not a single person asked “Who's going to take care of Philippe now?”, and it bothered me.

One question that occurred to me after I finished this volume: How can killing a Chain free its contractor if damage inflicted upon a Chain affects the Chain's contractor? Wouldn't killing the Chain also kill the contractor? Maybe there was an explanation that I missed.

I definitely like the series. I just wish I didn't have to go backward, so often, to figure out who someone is or what is happening in the story. I feel a little like the crazy rabbit with missing pieces of "memory."

I know it is not just my inexperience with Manga, because there are several other series I can follow with no problem.

Cannot finish. It is too confusing, I am too old for Manga. I quit.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Having returned from the infernal Abyss only to find his whole world changed, young "sinner" Oz Vessalius embarks on an attempt at normalcy after being reunited with his best friend and valet, Gilbert, whom he had presumed dead. But during a trip into town with Gil and Alice, an unexpected encounter leads Oz down memory lane. For Oz, however, the path is one covered with the most menacing of thorns. And lying in wait to assail him there. The baleful eye of his father and the echoes of cursed words Oz would much rather forget."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
