Format: Paperback
In this volume of Black Bird, there's a bit of a different feel. Why? No one seriously tries to steal/eat Misao or ruin Misao and Kyo's relationship. Instead, this volume opens with Misao and Kyo almost going all the way, interrupted by the triplets. Kensuke is able to tell the other demons some of which is written in the Senka Roku. However, the main focus of this volume is Kyo's best friend, Tadanobu, who is forced to take up the head position of the Kitsune clan after the death of his brother in the previous volume, and his girlfriend, Renko, who instantly bonds with Misao over their ability to see spirits. But all is not well, as with Tadanobu's new position means that he must seek out Misao for his clan, even though he loves Renko. Whether either of the couples can stay together is the focus of this volume, as is the emotional impact on Kyo of having to go against his best friend.

There are still some laughs in this volume, mainly coming from Misao's father, who we get to see a lot more, and the triplets, who are clingingly adorable. Kensuke is sent off early, still besotted by Misao and unwilling to harm her. The angst is heavy, as usual, with Kyo having a hard time emotionally, not just the normal Misao angst.

Overall, this volume was a good read, but had a different feel than the other volumes due to the lack of normal action. If you were getting bored of the series, this may spark your interest, but if you love the normal action, you may be a bit let down. Still worth a read.

Dear Reader,
After finishing four books in the Black Bird series, I’ve come to understand something about Kanoko Sakurakouji: She’s enjoys my pain. She loves those horrible cliffhangers that make a reader want to face plant a desk. And yet I can’t get enough!

I really can’t.

I just sjdsfhdsfdldhfg *sob* I’m so addicted it’s painful.
I need to learn her secrets.

❥ ❥ ❥

*breathes deeply* I will try to finish this review without spontaneously combusting.

Some things you should know about the fourth volume of Black Bird:
1.It starts with a nice and spicy make-out scene between Kyo and Misao. Nothing shows a promising read with some heavy breathing in the first scene. ©_©
2.The Tengu men are a horny bunch. Though if you’ve been reading my reviews of the previous stories, you’ve probably realized this. Just thought it was worth repeating. I’d totally get along with these dudes if they were real peeps. Why can’t fictional characters be reeaaaal? *sob*
3.After Kyo completely whoops the last Kitsune leader’s ass, a new heir to the throne appears. An heir whom happens to be Kyo’s best friend, Tadanobu. Did I mention they met when Kyo accidentally dropped his porn stash on Tadanobu’s head? It was bromance at first glance!
4.In the first two novels, Misao is this timid, shy creature that took great pleasure in slapping away Kyo’s roaming hands (and I take great pleasure watching her slap him around, it’s just too funny), but in the last couple of volumes, we see she is emerging from her timid shell, and expressing some bad-ass bravery. Stupidity as well, but let’s not pretend these two personality traits are in any way mutually exclusive.
5. Misao makes a new friend!

After the previous volumes of "Black Bird" I was actually pretty disappointed when I read this one. This book had less action than the previous three volumes, something I had come to look forward too since it made the series unique compared to most shojo manga. And the plot was rather predictable. I realize that every manga needs a volume of "downtime" without blood, guts and gore...but I could have done without the seemingly useless "filler" chapters that didn't advance the story much. The only bonus about the chapters was learning a little bit more about Kyo...When the book finally gets to some action it was rather disappointing, it only lasted a few pages and the characters involved had rather dry personalities and it ended with the stereotypical "Happily Ever After..." at least the book left off with a interesting cliff hanger.

I love the manga, it looks like new and came to me in perfect condition. but this manga is for teens so no one under 18 should read this manga.
