Yuri Manga: MURCIÉLAGO, Volume 6 (ムルシエラゴ)

January 15th, 2016

Murcielago-6-275x384In Volume 6 of MURCIÉLAGO there was a lot of violence and a lot of lesbian sex, but none of it was particularly appealing, even to me. ^_^

Someone is setting off bombs in a school. Kuroko shows up as a “detective” investigating the crimes, and the rest of the gang masquerade as students. A student who has been bullied by classmates, including the girl she thought loved her, finds extremely ugly retribution when the bullies are beaten to death with baseball bats. Minako (the bullied girl) and her lover are quite likely off to a good start as serial killers themselves. The team uncovers the identity of the bomber, Hinako finds the bomb, the teacher who is doing the bombing is killed and Ringo gets a little light skinning corpses in for practice.

Ratings:

Art – 6
Story – 4
Characters – 4
Service/Guro – 100000
Yuri – 8 Kuroko is very gay, so is Minako

Overall – 6

Just to be clear, this is a very light-hearted retelling of what was a really awful volume. ^_^ NOT good for bedtime reading.

    I cannot say I really cared for this volume either. Unfortunate that MURCIÉLAGO decided to go this route. Although I would say the volume 5 was the start of everything going down hill.

    • Well, it kind of had the potential all along, but yeah. The entire arc with Ringo was problematic. In face, it’s only been the maze of death and Virginal Rose arcs that have been almost reasonable. ^_^

    Heyyy, you’re the only Murcielago fan I know, so I wanted to run this by you, if it’s cool? xD This tweet by Yoshimura, it came out around the same time as School Destruction was released, so I’m wondering if it’s featuring Minako and Fuuri? https://twitter.com/yoshimurakana/status/639813223550578688

    This is those two as compared to the girls on the cover; http://i.imgur.com/9Q8WhxK.jpg

    It’s still a terrible relationship of course, but the dynamic is a lot more interesting if they’re both yandere and Minako did start off with more of the ‘power’ in the relationship? Moreso, it gives my trashy heart hope they’ll level out into something similar to Chiyo and Kuroko’s relationship.

    (I’m actually using Genki at the moment to try and learn Japanese, but I’m not sure if it’d be weird to outright ask Mr. Yoshimura if they are indeed Fuuri and Minako.)

    (Also I know this is an old blog post but it seemed the most relevant to place this comment on? xD )
