UQ Holder (4)
Wow! I've been wishy-washy about this series up to this point and wasn't sure if I was going to continue. However, this volume totally amps up the game! All the members of the team are being focused on, even though Tota is the main character, and their backgrounds are explored a little bit here mostly by telling us in what way each is immortal. My favourite at this point is Ikku. This volume is plot and battle intensive. A new bad guy with a mysterious past connection to Tota is introduced and the whole entire book surrounds his nefarious scheme and the UQ team trying to spot him. A new member of the team is also introduced (look at the cover); she's totally awesome with some very cool powers!
