X, Volume 2

by CLAMP

VIZ Media, 2012

11 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: The plot thickens! Mostly because we’re meeting more characters. Also, Kamui learns that it is his choice that will determine the fate of the world.

Likes: Once again, the color art is so gorgeous. Yuzuriha Nekoi is fabulous. Just like when Sorata was introduced last volume, I was so excited to see her. She’s really nice and cheerful, plus she has a dog spirit named Inuki and I was reminded of the story in Shirahime-Syo with the wolf Inuki.

Dislike: Once again Hinoto opens herself up for punishment by not being forthcoming with all the details.

Overall this volume was a little slow compared to the first. Mostly this was about meeting and getting to know characters. It was also about getting more information. In general this was more of a set-up type volume. Future plot points are being set-up.

Content

Language – Mild because “bitch” is used in place of “scold” once.

Sexual – Mild because one of the characters has a whole scene interacting with other characters in provocative lingerie. No one is naked though.

Violence – High because people are still having visions of people getting torn apart. There aren’t as many battles in this volume though.
