Twin Star Exorcists (#5)

A lot of things happen in his volume mostly to do with character development. There are a lot of flashbacks to when Rokuro was a kid and in training. The only disappointing point here is that they don't use the typical manga device of bordering the pages in black when we are looking at stories/scenes from the past so it got a bit confusing at times as to whether we were reading the past or present. However, Benio and Rokuro's relationship has changed drastically. Benio seems to genuinely be falling in love and committed to marrying and having the promised child. On the other hand, Rokuro seems to want to finish all the challenges before their child is born so as not to birth a child with a prophecy. This causes doubt on whether Rokuro is serious about Benio.

  1. Thanks for reviewing these: there's a new anime based on them, and I checked it out based on your review. First episode looks promising!
