Goodreads Synopsis:

 Destroy thy Neighbor! A gate to another dimension has burst open, and invincible monsters called Neighbors invade Earth. Osamu Mikumo may not be the best among the elite warriors who co-opt other-dimensional technology to fight back, but along with his Neighbor friend Yuma, he’ll do whatever it takes to defend life on Earth as we know it.

Osamu has less than sixteen minutes to safely deliver Chika, who’s been cubified, to HQ. Will Osamu make it in time or will the crossroads Jin has foreseen lead to the worst possible outcome for everyone?


I've missed several volumes, and it's obvious. Now the gang is in the middle of some huge fight, and people have been turned into cubes (what?), and there are two or three sides that are competing to reach an area or prevent the other from reaching it.
I'm mostly confused by what's happening.
I vaguely remember the three main characters, but one of them is now a cube and the others are trying to save her. There are several actions scenes throughout this volume, and I didn't particularly care about that. I don't know who the enemies are, or why they're fighting each other.
This might be more enjoyable if I had been following, but I mostly don't think this is my kind of series.

 A review copy was provided by the publisher, VIZ Media, for an honest review. Thank you so, so much!
