(Contains very light spoilers.)
We finally get to see what happened to Chise in this volume.
As she's with Josef, there's a struggle between them. And then Chise is forced to go back and watch her past. We see when she was younger, when things were good... and then when things turned bad. The contrast feels like it should be unbelievable, because you don't want to believe that a person can change so much, can turn in such a way. But it happens. The way that it's handled, and the way that Chise overcomes it and how she is forced to accept and decide regarding it, was really well done. I appreciated her stance on what happened.
And then we see Josef's past.
It's all very sad and messy, and it results in an equally messy end. Though I think that Chise comes out of it all right, even for the better in some ways.
After all of that, it looks like a new plot line is starting. They're off to a new journey, and I'm intrigued by where it will go next.
Okay so, on the 8th volume it ended in a pretty intense cliffhanger leaving me personally wondering wth is going to happen (because I didn't bother watching the anime when it went into 9th volume content months ago). If you're like me and really hate the intense cliff hangers, don't worry that doesn't happen in this one thankfully. We get to learn more about a few characters and their life which is really nice.
Top reviews from other countries
I'm from the UK and I fell in love with the obvious nods to British folklore and mythology, it's a fair treat to see my own countries folklore and mythology from a different cultures prospective. Kore Yamazaki has done a beautiful job of interpreting British folklore and her artwork is absolutely stunning.
The story she is telling is also fascinating, dark, beautiful and intriguing and it draw's you in as much as the art work. The charters suck you into Chise's story and you find yourself totally engulfed in her struggles and trails, but it's not just her story, Elisa Ainsworth is just as much of a mystery and both Elisa and Chise's journey will suck you in.
I don't want to spoil this volume but I will say that it take's a cold hard look at victimhood and the ways in which people cope when terrible things happen to think. it will make you think and some might find it uncomfortable but I honestly found it fascinating and refreshing and it was an interesting insight into Chise's charter.
I cant wait for volume ten :)
