RightStuf Synopsis:

While Kugaha continues to plot Bishamon's downfall, Yukine wonders what happened to his new friend Suzuha. He sees Kazuma leaving flowers at Suzuha's cherry tree and follows him back to the heavens - right into the enemy stronghold. But when Bishamon attacks, Kazuma is forced to choose whose side he is really on.


The feud between Yato and Bishamon continues in this volume. Yukine accidentally steps in the middle of it, what Kazuma did for Yato gets revealed to Bishamon. Kugaha is working behind the scenes to cause more tension between them, and causes a lot of trouble for everyone, and it works.
I feel bad for Kazuma, and for Yukine. They are caught in the middle, when they shouldn’t be. It’s also revealed what happened between Yato and Bishamon in the beginning, what caused this huge rift, and it’s bad. Much worse than I expected it to be. It’s understandable from both sides, and because of Kugaha, and the pain that Bishamon is already in, things are just exploding. It’s bad.
And then there’s the cliffhanger, which don’t even get me started.
I’m excited, and really looking forward to the next volume. This series is really well done, in the development and main plot, the excitement and horrible, but also in the light moments. The humor is funny, and well-placed, which I appreciate.
