Manga Review: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Volume 8, by Miki Yoshikawa

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: May 2016
Volumes: 25+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 7. 9.

Goodreads Synopsis:

"A RACE TO REMEMBER The race to find the seventh witch—and decide the next student council president—is coming to a close, and everyone has something to lose. Yamada and the Supernatural Studies Club must use body-switching trickery to outwit Tamaki’s invisibility power if they want to win. Finding the last witch means protecting Shiraishi, but Leona Miyamura reveals a secret about this ""special"" witch that makes the game even riskier! Can Yamada save Shiraishi even if it means losing the friendships he holds most dear?"


In the first half, Yamada and the group have to take their information and hunt for more clues to find out who the seventh witch is. And then he finds out. And it comes with a surprising twist.
This isn’t a plot that I expected to come up, and it’s an interesting development. I don’t mind these kinds of plots, and I think it’s done particularly neat in this series. I like how Yamada reacts, in particular, how he just goes along with it and tries to accept it without fighting. The way it leads to that cliffhanger is especially nice, in my opinion.
Very vague, but I’m liking where this is going. I’m interested to see how he fixes things, and how they’re going to go around it next time. I can’t wait to start the next one.
