After I read the first volume, I read the second volume. The second volume introduces some new characters. I found Kyo's vassals to be interesting characters. I was fond of the dynamics between them, and their designs are distinct and have personality.
There is some movement in the plot. For example, there was a flashback scene showing how Misao met Kyo when they were young. It was one of my favorite parts of this manga because I thought it was well-paced and it was genuinely heartwarming. I was sad that scene ended because after that, it was back to the less stellar stuff. Most of the thing that happens in this volume is a repeat of the previous entry.
