Format: Paperback
This is the sixth volume off the manga version of "Mardock Scramble," illustrated by Yoshitoki Oima and based on a series of novels by Tow Ubukata. The manga series is complete in seven volumes, and the sixth installment marks the end of the "casino episode" while it sets up the stage for the final battle between the heroine Rune Ballot and Dimsdale Boiled, an assassin hired by the casino owner Shell Septinos, who once "killed" the girl.

Volume 6 of "Mardock Scramble" does not have pulse-pounding gun fight scene, something that was impressive in the earlier volumes. Instead, Rune Ballot has to fight psychological battles against the veteran casino dealers at the blackjack table, with a help from a shape-shifting AI Oeufcoque (now disguised as her glove) and Dr. Easter.

The reader will be intrigued by the tense (though a bit drawn-out) mind games between Rune Ballot and the dealers. Some part of the game is too good to be true, but the comic does not have to be "true" when its purpose is clearly something else. This volume (and the one before that) functions as an episode where Ballot, once a helpless lost girl, grows up as a more independent person, someone who can think and fight even without Oeufcoque. Yoshitoki Oima's nice illustration successfully captures the changes that are happening in the girl.

Contrary to what the back cover of the book says, the volume does NOT "include special extras after the story." It has only a brief author's notes, and that's all. I'm getting accustomed to this kind of thing, but it is time the publisher do something about it.
