This exciting second installment in the E’S series finds Kai is determined to return home and face the frightening possibility that the organization he gave his loyalty to may not be at all what it seems.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Injured psychic Kai is recovering as this pedestrian manga begins. Various factions are fighting over his homeland of Ashurum, a training ground for those with mental powers. While calling Ashurum home, he's being cared for by those in an opposing faction. The characters and story are all very familiar, as though this work were assembled randomly out of pieces of other manga. It shouldn't surprise anyone that being cared for by nice people makes Kai reconsider their position. The mental abilities allow for scenes of swirly explosions, jagged sound effects and nondescript lines of force when a mercenary shows up to recapture him. Events are extended through pointless dialogue exchanges. Scenes seem to take forever to play out when the reader's already predicted what will happen. Shonen manga addicts may enjoy the typical goings on and lovingly delineated scenes of clichéd destruction. (May)

    I swear it'll get better ~!

    So Kai is taken in by the Tokugawa's and cared for. Asuka has a fondness for the lost puppy and Kai second-guesses going back to Ashrum after hearing some outside information challenging his views. A few scenes of Hikaru with Eiji and some light humor made for an okay volume. The art in the Cyborg action scenes was very dark and hard to understand at points. You would have to go back and thoroughly scan the pages to make sure you didn't miss anything big. But overall the art in this series is good, and can only get even more amazing and developed. Even though the frame of the story - the skeletal plotline seems a little cliche, I don't believe that it will remain the case. It seems that Yuiga is trying to lay out all the information. Once you have all that information, then I believe the fun will begin. And lets face it, the little kids in cages ain't so cliche now is it? I'm dying to know whats going on with that!
