Manga Review: Dengeki Daisy Vol. 8 [Paperback]

I’ve finished “Dengeki Daisy Vol. 8” by Kyousuke Motomi.

Product Description

Reads R to L (Japanese Style).

After orphan Teru Kurebayashi loses her beloved older brother, she finds solace in the messages she exchanges with DAISY, an enigmatic figure who can only be reached through the cell phone her brother left her. Meanwhile, mysterious Tasuku Kurosaki always seems to be around whenever Teru needs help … Could DAISY be a lot closer than Teru thinks?

My Review:

I highly recommend reading this volume if you want to find out about Kurosaki’s past and his friendship with Teru’s brother.

This volume picks up when Teru accidentally sent the text to Kurosaki telling him to go away and he does.

This volume deals with Kurosaki past and we learn more about his background.  Everyone except for Kurosaki (Boss, Riko and the scary one) explains to Teru their part they played in the past.  We also learn how Teru’s brother died and why Kurosaki feels responsible.

Kurosaki was so cute when he was younger (he really does look so different then now within 4 years) and the tragic event of why he became a hacker and the deadly virus he created.
