I grew up with Togashi as a very influential author for his briliant ideas and overall unique writing style. I bought this book for my own personal collection and was not dissapointed with the content at all. All of the old characters are back in the ongoing adventure this time in the demon plane, with many new characters and unseen alliances cropping up. I would completely reccomend this book for anyone at all who enjoys a good story, or a fun read just the same. I was completely satisfied with the book.
