Marine Red was short and sweet, for some reason I thought it was going to be some big, long affair that drug up Ban’s past. Maybe that’s up next.
I liked story line a lot in comparison to some of the massive affairs we’ve got lately that involve about 50 characters each. This plot involves Ban and Ginji facing off against Dokubachi and Captain Blood. There is vampirism and wine involved. It was pretty cool.
I liked this volume a lot because not only do we get to see Ban in action (no one seems to even put up a fight against him here), but we also get to see Ban in action trying to save Ginji. It was very cute. And for once, the plot was actually pretty straightforward. They tried to retrieve something, there was an altercation, they got the something back, queue comedic ending. A breath of fresh air, and really, quite preferable to any hot spring episode.
