(Contains some spoilers.)
I took a long break from this series, and I shouldn’t have done that. The last volume ended on a slow note for me, I guess. And then I ended up picking this volume a little while ago, because I had some extra money with me (which almost never happens), and thought why not. And then I read the book and remembered why I love this series so much.
This series is just so exciting. The adventures are so fantastic, and perfectly horrific. And yet also very funny. The characters are great. The art is gorgeous. And now I have the next three volumes to read, so I’ve got to get this written up.
The first couple chapters feature Arthur Conan Doyle, who talks to Ciel and Sebastian, clearing up the whole mystery of the party. And then Snake, of the circus (that I love), shows up, and ends up taking a position in the mansion, surprisingly enough.
Then Elizabeth (Ciel’s fiancé, who I love) wants Ciel to go on a cruise with her, which he only agrees to because he has a case taking place within it. There are some rather humorous moments with Ciel, including with the Undertaker, who is also on board. But it turns out there’s a secret society on the ship, and someone claiming to be able to bring the dead back to life. And this ends with a cliffhanger featuring a rather horrific creature.
Excitement is sure to be ahead! And I’m excited!
On a side note, I just saw the cover of volume 13, and realized that Elizabeth is on it. And she’s on the cruise with Ciel. And she’s around a lot, when stuff is happening. And, you guys, I really just want her to find out and be a part of everything. Please? Can that please happen?
Well, I guess I’ll find out if it does.
On to the next volume!
In this volume the events of the last two volumes are explained in detail with all revealed. Then Ciel and Sebastian end up on a cruise ship with Ciel’s intended. Most of the people think that Ciel is taking a well deserved break but little do they know that really Ciel is following rumors of the Aurora Society, a Society that claims to be able to wake the dead.
It was nice to have the events of the previous two volumes explained in detail (I was still a bit confused about why what happened happened in volume 10). I am also happy to have that story line tied up because, while it was very tongue in cheek and somewhat entertaining, I was ready to move on.
The last third of this book puts the reader in an interesting place. We are on a cruise ship with a society that claims to be able to raise the dead (oh boy...this scenario is just begging for trouble).
It was wonderful to have Sebastian back in the story. The Undertaker is also in the story for the last part of the book (he is one of my favorite characters).
The illustration continues to be beautifully done. I really enjoy the high quality and entertainment value of these mangas.
Overall an excellent continuation of this manga series. I continue to find this manga series highly entertaining and very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy Victorian paranormal themes to their manga.
