Grade: A -

The conflict that has been building for the first two volumes of Afterschool Charisma reaches a climax in this volume. The story still give off a cartoony, melodramatic feel that it can’t shake even after piling on the realistic violence and moral conundrums. The identity of the shadow organization isn’t nearly as shocking as the more personal confrontations that take place. Shiro is at a total loss to deal with any of the the events, locked away from his friends and confronting his own questions of identity. While most of the motivations behind all of the events are still a mystery, the reactions to them make for compelling reading. Now it’s just a matter of who is going to survive the attack and if there is any hope for the students to break free from this strange and vicious cycle.
