I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Again, the manga was a little wordy for my tastes. While I enjoyed the action in this volume, loved that Ryuki got a chance to show that he's a more capable person than he at first appears to be, and sighed over the brotherly love stuff, certain events were a little hard to follow. I had trouble keeping straight who was betraying whom and why. Also, the fantasy elements were jarring and seemed to appear out-of-the-blue.
As far as the short extra at the end went, I admit it, I cried a little.
