Dengeki Daisy 11
November 16, 2014
Kyousuke Motomi – Viz – 2012 – 16 volumes
Sometimes, I worry that this series lost its spark after Teru found out about Daisy. Then, Kurosaki wishes gout upon Teru, and I remember why this is still good to read. Also, I like that he complains about being poor, but apparently wears D&G underwear. And I really like that a reader comment in back said that one of Kurosaki’s bad points is that he’s not going bald like everyone is hoping. So maybe I have that to look forward to in future volumes.
So I do still like it. But having said that, I’m still not sure I’m all that into the direction the plot is taking right now. This volume starts in on a new threat, this time headed by Teru’s friend Rena’s fiancee. It’s a new version of Jack Frost, and Morizono is a pretty sleazy guy who tries to bribe Teru and does all sorts of awful stuff to Rena.
But… again, I don’t really want to read a shoujo manga about computer hacking and espionage. Teru is still kinda in danger, because she’s being targeted as Daisy’s contact person. But most of this volume is about Rena, and about Morizono slowly being unveiled as a sleaze.
I do still like Teru and Kurosaki, and I adore the sense of humor that’s still slipping in occasionally. But I think I’m gonna need to get through this storyline before I start getting bigger doses of what I want.
