As Bishamon overpowers Yato, Kugaha's plan to destroy her seems doomed to failure...until her medicine wears off, and Bishamon--as well as any shinki she touches--is covered in blight. Meanwhile Kazuma tries desperately to free himself and Hiyori before she loses her chance to return to the living.
The last volume ended on a horrible cliffhanger with Yukine. And thank god that’s resolved, which ends in a nice way for Yukine and Yato’s relationship.
The fight with Yato and Bishamon continues for a while, and it’s bad. She loses a lot of her people, but I think she’s better in the end. I love the way she cares for her people, and the way she starts being honest with them, creating an open back and forth communication with them all. It’s the start of a much healthier relationship. I liked how she resolved her relationship with Kugaha, very deserving; as well as the one with Kazuma. Those were well done.
And then we get a new cliffhanger with Hiyori! Ugh, this one hurts even more than the last. I see why Yato does what he does, and clearly it was going to happen at some point. But it’s so bad, and heartbreaking, for all three of them.
I cannot wait for the next one, I have to see what happens next! I'm really glad I decided to keep with this series.
Also, I'm really looking forward to this monthly release.
