Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, December 26, 2017
I've been following this very quirky and surreal series for some time. This volume picks up after Volume 5.

There do seem to be some advances in the story - the sinister witch makes more appearances, we get strong hints as to the origins of the curse, a peek at Kuro and Sensei before they were cursed (so sweet!), and a chilling look at the direction things might take, when the witch discovers the unusual purity and resilience of Nijuku and Sanju.

But before that there's a little side trip, a ghost story with more than one haunting - a lovely little tale. And a nastier story with some nightmarish visions - the artwork here can switch from adorable to horrifying in a moment.

There's an author's note suggesting that the next volume will be the last, and while I'll be sorry not to have more adventures with Kuro and friends, I hope the conclusion will be a happy one after all the trials they've been through.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the series with some entertaining tidbits.]
