Rating (Out of 5): ~4

Goodreads Synopsis:

Safu is a prisoner on the top floor of the Correctional Facility. Shion and Nezumi manage to slip back in amid the chaos sown by Dogkeeper, but what they find is almost too terrifying to conceive… countless neatly organized rows of corpses, with their brains removed! Backed into a corner, Rat is ready for death, but Shion seizes a weapon, and insists on surviving at any cost—!

Includes special bonus story!


So Shion and Rat are finally in the facility, working their way to save Safu. It starts good, but quickly gets violent and bloody, and difficult for both Shion and Rat.
It’s hard on both Rat and Shion. It’s changing Shion, in a bad way, and it’s really giving a different look at him. Rat is also seeing the way that it’s changing Shion, and he isn’t liking it either, even if Shion isn’t really aware. Things are going bad for them quite rapidly, and it’s not good.
We got to see a little bit of what is going on inside No. 6, and it’s not good there either. We’re mostly seeing this from Shion’s mom’s point of view, and the scientist who’s doing it. The disease is quickly spreading in public, and it’s bad.
There were also a few scenes with Dogkeeper, and some of it was bad, mainly when she helped Shion and Rat. But we also saw her with the baby, and it’s just adorable. She tries not to be, but she’s good with him, and she likes him. Little Shion is obviously attached to her. It’s so cute. 
Then there was the cliffhanger, which is leading to some interesting discoveries with Safu. Something bad is happening to her. And it’s sure to be exciting.
