Blood Lad 9
Phew-ee, Blood Lad really is getting better!
Braz did experiments on Staz to seal away his “thing”. Needless to say, Staz was not very impressed, but since Braz was probably like three times older than Staz, he had no choice. Eventually, Braz shot a bullet into Staz’s heart, a bullet that only Braz could take out – sealing off his “thing” for good. This was both bad and good – bad, because Staz lost access to his “thing”, and good, because Staz can’t use his “thing” to make women uncomfortable anymore.
Meanwhile, Wolf finds that Yanagi’s legs are disappearing (because that’s the first thing he looks at) – just as lower-level demons’ legs disappear when they enter the human world… Yanagi’s legs disappear when she goes back to the demon world?
Finally, Beru teleports Staz to Braz’s castle, where he hopes to get his “thing” back for good – unfortunately, a menacing figure (who’s probably a shy yandere) looms behind Staz with a GIANT AXE-THING
I previously expressed doubts about this being turned into a good anime, but now, I am just overcome with excited…ness… at it. Blood Lad is becoming a genuine good manga, with better art, a deepish backstory, an already large cast of characters, and even some mind twisting with Staz’s last statement towards Beru. The final problem is the lack of content – unfortunately, Blood Lad really won’t have much content for a long time, if it continues at its chapter-a-month pace. Hopefully, the author will realize what a great manga Blood Lad is, and devote more time and energy towards it.
Cheers for a volume of Blood Lad completed; here’s to many more~!
