Mr. Sakamoto, his family, and his two employees enjoy a day at the theme park while dodging assassins who are trying to cash in on the bounty on Sakamoto. The three former assassins try to keep Mrs. Sakamoto and daughter Hana oblivious to the violence going on around them while still trying to keep Sakamoto Family Rule #1: No Killing. An assassin named Boiled and his assistant come after Mr. Sakamoto within a haunted house, and the two taunt Mr. Sakamoto for gaining weight and losing his assassin skills. This prompts Sakamoto into instant weight-loss again, a superpower we first saw in volume 1. Then, another assassin reveals that someone has been killing assassins systematically, and it started about the same time a bounty was put on Sakamoto’s head. Could the two things be related?
There is more hilarity and crazy fight scenes in volume two, but we’re also introduced to a mystery that might become an overarching plot that spans multiple volumes. This mystery might be intriguing to some readers who want to know if there is a connection to Mr. Sakamoto, but I could have used a few more details or a couple more panels of suspense. I appreciate that Sakamoto keeps adopting people that are now reforming their lives and his circle of people to protect is getting larger. That also means we keep getting new and interesting characters, which keeps the story fresh.
