Manga Review: Twin Star Exorcists, Volume 5, by Yoshiaki Sukeno

Rating (Out of 5): ~3
Publisher: Shonen Jump (VIZ Media)
Release Date: July 5, 2016
Volumes: 9+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 4. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Rokuro is from a family of exorcists, but he'd rather be a singer, a soccer player or anything but an exorcist! He's forced to own up to his own incredible potential when new arrival Benio stirs his competitive spirit. But their rivalry gets a twist when they earn the prestigious title of 'Twin Star Exorcists"- two supreme fighters fated to marry and birth the ultimate spiritual warrior!

Benio and Rokuro are locked in a life-and-death battle with Benio’s evil brother Yuto. Will the Twin Star Exorcists ever reach Tsuchimikado Island, the headquarters of the Exorcist Association and the front lines of the bitter struggle against the Kegare…?


And the horrible fight continues. The twin stars are fighting her brother, with glimpses of the other characters, who have no idea what the twin stars are doing. We also get a look into Rokuro’s past, what happened at the orphanage, and what happened when he met Yuto for the first time. It’s sad, but it does make me love Ryogo a whole bunch more.
The fight is bad. Horribly painful for everyone involved. And then we move on, where the twin stars have to face the consequences for fighting Yuto in secret. I’m intrigued by Seigen now, and find Mayura to be a sweet girl. There’s a time skip at the end of the volume, it looks like, which makes sense as the two gain a lot of experience and tone their skills.
I’m intrigued to see what happens next. I am slowly following with this series, and do like reading the new volumes.
