Our heroes finally find who the traitor is within the Myodha and now the left eye has been taken. Ossamu harbors all the secrets of the Order against Bon's wishes, and Rin tries to mediate the father-son squabble because of his guilt with Father Fujimoto. Afterwards, there are 40 pages dedicated to bonus stories. There is an adventure with Yukio, Rin, and Shiemi fighting a phantom demon subway ferrying unsuspecting riders to their doom. Then there's one with Kuro running away because he thinks Rin is intentionally cooking foods he doesn't like to starve him.
This volume felt like a filler volume as the Kyoto cast discussed the ramifications of their recent battles, then so much more bonus content than is normal. The bonus about Kuro was cute, and really tugged at my heartstrings as a cat owner. Poor little guy is just hungry and wants to be treated with respect! We are in the middle of a story arc, so I'm not sure why the mangaka decided that this was the "perfect" place for extra bonus content instead of more chapters to further the story.
