Ryu Fujisaki – Viz – 2011 – 23 volumes

Oh man, the end of this series is BORING.  Now we’re getting into the plots behind the plots behind the plots, and some sort of metaphysical paope that Joka uses that makes it so whatever it touches never existed, and I’m not even sure what happened in this volume except they rumbled Joka, she has some crazy soul-splitting abilities that make her almost invincible, and… UGH.

Fujisaki straight-up admits he can’t explain how her paope works, because it doesn’t make sense.  I also learned that the super-powerful good guy introduced last volume exists only because Fujisaki drew him for a game and liked the design enough to put him in the series.  It’s his series, and he can do whatever he wants.  I’ve quite enjoyed the sense of humor here all the way through.  But man, I’m having trouble dealing with this ending, because there are too many characters, and it doesn’t make sense.

One more volume after this.  Dakki’s still running around out there somewhere, so I’m hoping Taikobo will demand satisfaction after he wipes Joka out.  That would be great.
