This is the final issue of the series which will determine the end of the war of Yakuza.

When the whole gang was facing some horde of demons, Ochita was unconscious after pouring with some strange chemical on her by some Yakuza. The demon mammoth rampages the whole city. However, Ochita has been possessed from her killing intent of her soul which makes her vomit, except the sword has special powers and somehow she had been possessed and transferred her soul to Ochita. With her soul inside of that girl’s vessel, she has to use all her power to kill the demon mammoth which turned out that inside that creature is no other than her brother Tatsuya. After the fight, Tatsuya notices that his son was severely injured and died because of the demon that had been possessed from the demon sword that Ochita was holding, and then he decided to take revenge. Even though, she definitely poses a threat to all the Yakuza and the whole country in Japan, and her life had changed forever.

In my reflections of this issue, I find this story very dark after I read from the beginning to the end which shows the main character’s miserable life. However, each character has a different background story regarding if anyone possesses by an evil spirit or whatever kind, but what makes this story and art very art is that it focuses some mythical mythology and occultic events throughout the issue. Of course, the main character had been cursed and made rampage throughout the city. I find this story, extremely flawless because the art is shown that the artist is using so much shadowing to have the story more dark than anyone can imagine. This was a flawless storytelling for anyone who likes dark stories, I would probably recommend it to anyone who likes reading stories like this.
