Illustrated by Posuka Demizu
While still on their trek to a new safe location provided by Mr. Minerva, a few of the kids have to break into a mass production farm to steal medicine for Chris, who isn't doing so well. For some of them, this is the first time they've seen the inhumane treatment of children at a mass production farm. Not everything goes according to plan, and Emma’s life is seriously threatened. After the raid on the farm and the administration of medicine, the group finally makes it back to the base of their mysterious supporter, but it’s not the William Minerva they expected they'd meet - it’s someone from the past at Grace Field House.
I don't scare easily, but there were definitely a few moments within the assault on the Mass Production farm that got me on the edge of my seat. I also had a feeling the Mr. Minerva they were going to meet wasn't the one they were expecting since we've been getting sneak peaks at that Ratri clan, but I also didn't expect who they got! This series definitely keeps you guessing and on your toes. Although, with some of the latest revelations about demon society, I'm a little confused why we spent a few volumes looking to redo "The Promise" that kept demons on their side of the world. Hopefully, that will come back and be relevant to the new plans that are being put into place.
