Manga Review: 7th Garden, Volume 5, by Mitsu Izumi

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Shonen Jump (VIZ Media)
Release Date: July 4, 2017

Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The high-pitched battle is on between powerful angels, sexy demons and innocent humans to dominate a world rife with political intrigue and to win the heart of one hapless male!
Awyn Gardner will do anything to protect the beautiful mistress of the equally beautiful estate gardens he lovingly tends...even enslave himself to an also beautiful demon bent on world domination!
Awyn doesn t have the heart to battle a friend possessed by the angel Loki, but if he doesn t, he ll get killed! And who will save his beloved mistress Marie when she turns out to be his enemy s backup plan Vyrde or Marianne? Wait aren t those just different names for the same person ?!"


There was a lot of strategizing and flashbacks in this volume. The way that Loki and Vyrde knew each other before, they played games and tried to beat each other, and Vyrde was usually with the upper hand. Now that they're coming face-to-face again, they are using a similar method, though this time it's much more lethal, and involving a lot more people.
I will say that I'm surprised by the casualties that happen, and I'm wondering if they really will stick this time. It's sad, to see a couple characters go—but not everyone can survive in this kind of thing.
We also get a new insight into what is going on with Vyrde. That there might actually be two sides of her, and I'm intrigued by where that's going. I like the added depth this volume has shown.
I really like the artwork in this series; at times, it's gorgeous. The story line is interesting, and it is getting more so the more we learn. I'm enjoying following it so far.
