Yeah! The plot really gets going in this volume. We get to see the lightening lord, a riff between Ban and Ginji, Akabane comes into play, and action, lots of glorious action.
The insect clan seems to be cursed by their bug forms, and it seems like the majority are ready and willing to take out both the beast clan and everyone Shido hired to help him, some are seeking the help of the retrievers and transporters to break them of their curse. Not sure if that means they’ll spare their lives, but it’ll be interesting to see if this divides the forces in any way.
Did I mention that I love both Ban and Ginji? Because I do. We get teased more about the relationship they share, in the non-romantic sense. We also get to see both at the top of their game fight-wise in this volume, and I just love that sort of thing. I go between periods of love and hate with this series, but once it gets going, it can be really good. It’s the lame in-between parts that are tedious to read.
