The volume reminded me of when I was 14, when I'd go on Youtube and watch videos I thought were "dark" and "mature." Of course, looking back on that point in my life, I can say that the things I watched weren't either of those things, but edgy impressions of what was "dark" and "mature." I'm not exactly proud of that point in my life, and I'm not overly ecstatic about what I've read so far either, but the series does show promise if they don't try to take themselves too seriously :3

It's pretty cool. Yeah, I know it's weird that all of the characters are wearing Mickey Mouse gloves, and yeah, I know that all of it's written like it's by the cringiest teenager to have breathed on this Earth, but I don't care, it's still cool.

They improved on a couple of things: better proportions, actual story arcs, and showing off more of Alucard's special abilities, and that's great to see! If you liked the first volume, chances are you'll like this one too.
