Manga Review: No. 6, Volume 9, by Atsuko Asano and Hinoki Kino

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: October 2014
Volumes: 9
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 8.

Goodreads Synopsis:


With Rat critically injured protecting him, Shion finally returns to NO. 6. But what he finds there is not the tranquil utopia he left behind, but a city in the grip of panic and chaos. As the “holy city” collapses in on itself, Shion and Rat put will the future of humanity — and their future together — on the line in the shocking final volume of NO. 6!


I don’t know how the anime ends, but apparently this ending is more satisfying? I’ve heard some things, so I’m definitely going to have to finish the anime for comparison. But given just this, I’m pretty satisfied.
It’s a bit odd, and apocalyptic for a bit there, otherworldly. But I’m okay with that, how the dystopian world and disease gets resolved.
I think that Shion is in a pretty good place at the end of the volume. The ending with him and Rat is sad, but I think that the very end has enough hope, that I can let myself believe there’s a happy ending there. And I like the similarities to the beginning of the series.
Overall, I’m pretty satisfied. It left me pretty satisfied, at least.
