Manga Review: Dengeki Daisy, Volume 16, by Kyousuke Motomi

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: April 2015
Volumes: 16
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 15.

Goodreads Synopsis:

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with DAISY, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help… Could DAISY be a lot closer than Teru thinks?

Kurosaki and Teru risk their lives to activate "M's Last Testament," but a huge explosion goes off on the uninhabited island they’re on! What is the fate of Kurosaki, Teru and Akira?! The series comes to a conclusion, followed by bonus material and two Dengeki Daisy special chapters (one of which includes Teru’s late brother, Soichiro)!


This series has finally come to an end, and a very good one at that.
It’s been building up to it, and that cliffhanger was not very nice. And thankfully, the conclusion comes rather quickly after that. We see how the three of them got out, and then how they recover from it. Akira in the hospital, the others going back to normal. I don’t want to spoil too much, so I won’t go into detail. But I think it was rather well done.
And then we get several extra chapters, filling in some holes, and then some nice backstory for Soichiro. We get a nice glimpse at Teru and Kurosaki, how they’re going forward together and on their own.
We end with a one shot debut from Motomi, which is about what you’d expect a debut story to be. Not the best, really.
But the series ends on a really great note, for all of the characters. I’m particularly happy for Teru and Kurosaki, but I’m also glad with Akira’s conclusion. 
I look forward to reading her next series.
