Misao still doesn't want to marry Kyo but her feelings for him cannot be ignored. She finally gets to meet the rest of Kyo's clan which consists of five handsome tengus and Taro's two brothers. One of the vassals is Kyo's older brother, Sojo, who originally was the clan leader. Misao is surprised to find him to be a gentle and caring person, unlike his erotic brother. However, Sojo has a secret agenda of his own...
If anything, Black Bird is my guilty pleasure manga. The content does start to push over the PG-16 rating but surely does not go beyond that.
My favourite part in this volume is when it takes a look into Kyo's and Misao's past. I found it utterly adorable and started to respect Kyo some more (not that he wasn't already a cool character). Just seeing them as kids gives the reader a break from all of the intense scenes to coo over young Kyo's caring gestures toward innocent Misao. When it did get back to the more mature moments, I couldn't help but blushed.
Those who have read the first volume will not be disappointed with the second. It does show that the situation Misao is in gets more dangerous but unfortunately for her, she can not escape her fate. Readers can see that the mangaka have left some new trails of bread crumbs that have to be followed in order to see what else is really going on. This volume ends off with a huge question that is making me dying to know what will happen next! I think I will definitely get the third volume!
