Title: Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation Vol 17
Author: Yoshiyuki Nishi
May Contain Spoilers
Muhyo and Roji are up to their ears in trouble again! Things aren’t looking good, either, because Muhyo is incapacitated! He’s fallen into a deep, deep sleep, and no one can wake him up! This is so not good! There are some wicked ghosts attacking the Magic Law Association, and the Magic Law practitioners aren’t having much luck fending off the attack. The members of the Magic Law Association are also at a loss; the ghosts are working together, and it seems as though they are evolving! That sounds like big, big trouble!
The action certainly kicked back into high gear, and things look pretty hopeless for the M.L.A. Even Nana isn’t immune to the attacks, and she’s been snatched by the ghosts, and is being held prisoner! She learns that she’s there to give birth to a ghost’s child! That had me even a little appalled. Yoshiyuki Nishi’s spirits are scary looking. I don’t think they would make very good parents, either. Poor Nana! I hope Muhyo wakes up in time to save her from a very unpleasant experience.
Things are looking mighty bleak for the gang, as the ghosts collectively wreak havoc on the M.L.A. Most of their heavy hitters have already been knocked out of the battle, and Muhyo just won’t wake up. He has good reason, and it turns out that his tempering has been leached from him, leaving him without any energy. The rest of the executors are in the same boat, and all of their efforts to fend off the ghosts are only feeding them and making them stronger. Like the protagonists, the reader is never given a chance to catch their breath, as events spiral towards the concluding volume of the series. I just hope that Muhyo doesn’t sleep through the finale!
