Black Bird, Vol. 7 - Kanoko Sakurakouji 'Misao is the bride of prophecy whose blood gives power to the demon who claims her. But most demons want to keep her power for themselves - by eating her! Now Misao is just trying to stay alive...'

In this volume, we're introduced to Raikoh, a human priest who hates demons. Instead of Misao being in danger, this time it's Kyo (for once).

Weirdly, the plot arc that seemed to be building in the last volume kind of fizzled out without nothing happening. That was a little bit disappointing. Another disappointing thing about this volume is that it reminded me about how Kyo likes to 'punish' Misao by making her worry or by humiliating her, and I hate that. That's the one bit of his character I absolutely despise. Gah, it makes me so mad. You LOSE A STAR, volume seven.

Aside from that, though, I enjoyed this volume. There were some really sweet and funny domestic scenes between Kyo and Misao, which I loved seeing. And Raikoh seems like a very interesting character - I hope he comes round to the idea that not all demons are horrible and out to harm humans. Something tells me he might take quite a bit of persuading though.

I'm quite looking forward to this story arc with Raikoh. I hope that it doesn't just fizzle out like the one in the previous volume did, though!
