Seraph Of The End picks up steam as the movers and shakers of the human world (the Hiragi family) make their appearance. We learn more about the ‘orphanage’ from which Yu and Mika emerged – and things are not as they seem. But mostly, volume 5 was interesting to see the interaction of Guren Ichinose and his unique demon (and its connection to the Hiragi family).
The first few volumes of the series felt more like introductions – the usual training up and minor skirmishes. But volume 5 greatly opens up the world more and the layers in the story are starting to emerge. I’m looking forward to volume 6! Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
