Yikes. Another decent volume. I love that we get a chance to see more of Riff, who's quickly becoming my favorite side character. I hope that liking a character like him, complete with silver hair, doesn't turn out as badly here as it did in Angel Sanctuary >.>This volume was, I though, stronger than the first. There's real heartbreak and a lot less giggling at unintentionally funny moments in this one. The Youths who Stopped Time was wonderfully creepy and I loved Branded Bibi. The overall mood stayed solidly in the dark and macabre. Looking very much forward to reading the next one!
