Still going well for me. Tenma is a good man on the run, and Nina is a kick-butt young woman who finds out she's linked to a killer. Why did Johan let her shoot him in the head? Will Inspector Lunge ever realize the truth about Tenma? At this point, Tenma can't trust anyone. Even the police have shown that they can be bought by Johan.

Dr. Tenma's search for Johan leads him to find Johan's sister, Anna, who was adopted by a kindly family. Nina, as the girl is now called, has no memory of her parent's murder or her brother. However, on her 20th birthday, Johan contacts her, leading her to remember her parents murder.

This book slows down the pace from volume 1 considerably, and that was not what you'd call a blistering read. I read this book a while ago, and while trying to write the description of it, had a hard time remembering what happened. The book is well done, although I feel the German setting detracts from the tale, but it is slow, and not entirely memorable. Not for the casual manga fan. (cross-posted from MeriJenBen) ( )
