49. Kamo Volume 1 by Ban Zarbo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a great opening volume! It introduces the characters, the plot and even accomplishes the first of twelve tasks. So, starting off with such a well-grounded first volume I got involved with the plot right away. It reminds me a bit of "Death Note" in that a human boy is accompanied by a grotesque looking spirit. Kamo is on his deathbed when the spirit, Crimson, makes a deal with him. Kamo will help Crimson defeat twelve other spirits in exchange for his health to be mended. This had just the right amount of everything making it a fun and interesting beginning to a series. I enjoyed it.
