"Caught in The Ripper's scissors hold, Rikuo faces off against this terrifying enemy whose Fear feeds on the pain of children. Speaking of eating, brother and sister team Ryuji and Yura travel to the worst tourist destination ever, the Village That Devours People!!"
Received a review copy from the publisher.
Absolutely freaking awesome. One of the best volumes in a while. This volume concentrates on a new Yokai Clan called the "Hundred Stories Clan" which consists of Yokai which are made up from myths and urban legends that become so widespread they have a life of their own and the Yokai are actually created from the fear itself. Very awesome! Rikuo and the Clan deal with some sweet stories and new yokai in chapters called: "The Ripper", "The Village That Devours People" and "The Girl on the Subway". Finally the book ends connecting the Hundred Stories Clan with the past and we are set to take a peek at a bygone era and hear a tale involving Rikuo's father, Rihan. Loved, loved, this volume and am so hyped for volume 18!
