Rating: 5/5

Yukiteru gets a freash start at a new school, only to find out that he’s been joined by Hayasaka, a bully from his previous class. Yukiteru just can’t get a break! That’s how he feels, at least, until his classmates stand up for him. Maybe Yukiteru can turn over a new leaf, forget about the Diary Games and enjoy a normal life… But will the Diary Games forget about Yukiteru? Not if the mysterious Diary Holder Tenth has anything to say about it.

The twists just get crazier and crazier. The story has gotten better with each volume, and I can only hope it will stay that way. In this volume, Yuki finally gains some friends, but it takes some interesting twists. Meanwhile, Yuno is getting really jealous, and I would not want to make that girl mad. Seeing how she’s murdered a good number of people at this point, she could be very dangerous when angry. When they all find themselves in a life or death situation, she repeatedly tries to get Yuki to use them as bait so they can escape together. Yuki is far too nice for that kind of plan, of course. Besides, these are his first friends. He can’t just leave them to die.

Ninth disappears in this volume, but I have no doubt she’ll be back. She’s not the type to go out without an epic fight. The question left hanging in the last volume was “what the hell is Fourth up to?” The answer is revealed at the end of this volume. I can’t help but think the gang will have to deal with him in the next volume. I’m so excited that I can say “the gang” now. It’s not just Yuki and Yuno anymore. Yuki’s got some help, and some potential homosexual advances. I’m not sure if Akise (he’s the blond guy on the cover) was just messing with Yuno or if he really does have a thing for Yuki. I can only imagine what a shock that will be to innocent little Yuki.

I’ll admit that this series can be totally over the top, but it’s so much fun. I’m completely obsessed. I’ll have to drop by the library today and pick up a couple more volumes.

Prude Filter: This manga contains profanity, violence, and sexual references. The books suggests 16 and up.

  1. This sounds like an interesting series. I haven't heard of it before. I like series that get better with each volume. The other way around is too common.
