This is a series that I continue to enjoy. In this volume, Ganta continues to learn the workings of the prison. Upon hearing that the Red Man, the creature that framed him for murdering his schoolmates, is in Ward G. Ganta tried to find the ward to get answers and revenge.

In this volume, Ganta gets a turn to fight in the arena versus a man that calls him "Woodpecker." There, he will discover more about a power he has and was previously unaware of. The mysteries deepen as we get to see more of the prison's depths. The volume has plenty of intrigue, suspense, and action. The powers element was a bit hard to understand, but things will gradually be revealed. Well, at least that is what the series promises.

Overall, I really liked this one.

4 out of 5 stars.

This qualifies for the following 2015 Reading Challenges:
