    Black Bird, Volume 5 by Kanoko Sakurakouji continues the intriguing and mysterious story of the tengus. I really hope more information comes out soon about the Senka Maiden. It is getting a little annoying hearing the 'don't do this or else...' line. Just tell us what's gonna happen or find something else in the plot to focus on.

That will bring in more drama and interesting plot lines for the books. Misao and Kyo's relationship needs to develop a little bit more. I'm hoping this book speeds it up a bit! Luckily, I feel like this volume is a step up from the first couple that weren't grabbing my interest. Add in the incredible manga illustrations and you've got a story headed in the right direction. Three out of five stars.

    The dramatic tension was really racheted-up a notch with this volume, along with the pressure placed on Kyo to wed and bed (emphasis on the later) Misao.

Kyo agrees to take Misao back home to his village with him, even though they both understand that if they do not fulfill the prophetic "joining" than Kyo could be removed from his position as Lord of the Tengu and replaced with his traitorous (and probably insane) older brother Sho. In an attempt to thwart this, the Eight Daitengu (sort of a bodyguard for Kyo) and Kyo devise a plan to reveal Sho as the insane (and thus completely unsuitable candidate for clan leadership). However, it doesn't go as planned, leaving both Misao and the entire Tengu Clan in mortal peril! *** I greatly enjoyed this volume, the cliff-hanger ending forced me to immediately move on to Volume 6! The tension, both personal and professional (the rivalry for the position as a sort of CEO of the Tengu Clan is similar) for Kyo and Misao was very well-written. I really liked that though their relationship was a focal point of the story, it really wasn't in the forefront of the volume. The political machinations of Kyo and the Eight Daitengu against Sho was awesome! Also, Sagami's wife, is hilarious in her response to Sagami's return to the village (along with everyone's response to the scene, "Look up!") *** The humor was another strong point to this volume.

I read it for a few readathons. They were.

Misao is the Senna Maiden, which is special in this world and will bring prosperity to the clan she chooses. Reading Rivalry - A book featuring a quest - basically the same as the Cardcaptor-a-thon prompt above. FFS - The theme for December is Ticket To Ride and this book was my second read of December. We have to link books. The first book I read in December was The Night Circus, which has a black, white and red spine like this volume of Blackbird. That’s the way I’m linking it. PopSugar Reading Challenge 2019 - A book featuring ghosts - they really don’t play a role at all but there are ghosts drawn on the page, as this is a manga so it works :)! OWLS Magical Readathon - Winter edition - Read a book with an orange cover. There are orangey pink flowers on the cover. This manga series DOES have mature or adult themes of sex and violence and both of these feature in volume 5. The sex scenes aren’t exactly played out on the page but they’re still brought up. In volume 5 we see Misao wanting to become Kyo’s bride to save his clan. This is really where the main story of the series begins I feel, as in the previous volumes we are just being introduced to the characters. Volume 5 is where Misao finally understands her role in Kyo’s clan. This is why I gave this volume 5 stars because it’s where the story really starts. Does this shock her, and is she willing to do it? You’ll have to read to find out...

    07 February 2013 Black Bird, Volume 5 delves into the private life of Sagami by introducing his ailing wife, Ayame, who also happens to be Kyo's cousin. Pleas from home and Ayame's health create concern for Kyo and his vassals.

Meanwhile, tensions are high with the Senka Roku having gone missing, causing the Tengu Clan to feel desperate for Misao to quickly become the Tengu bride. Kyo and his Daitengu take Misao to their homeland to introduce her to their clan and to appease the clan's patriarch. However, their secret objective is to destroy the major threat to Kyo's leadership, which will hopefully give Kyo and Misao the peace they yearn for. The action has slowed down in this volume, but it seems there is a traitor in the midst. I assume with the cliffhanger ending there will be some good action to come when our little damsel in distress needs rescuing...again. I can't get enough of the triplets. They're so freakin' adorable. I just want to squish them. There are some funny moments in this volume, but for the most part the tone is pretty serious. I did love the part where Misao is talking about eliminating someone's manhood and the Tengu's reactions were priceless. I hope the next volume picks up with more excitement.

    http://www.owltellyouaboutit.com/posts/black-bird-volume-5/ It’s pretty frustrating that I still don’t know exactly what kind of catastrophe is supposed to come about if Kyo and Misao are intimate more than once. It’s a weird concept and I think it’s kind of a silly one, honestly.

I wasn’t very interested in this one. It focused a little on Sagami and his romantic issues. I wasn’t terribly interested in that. It was another tragic story of why they can’t be together forever. It’s a popular theme in this series. Things got better when they went to Kyo’s village. There was a sense of things moving forward in the overall plot at that point. The ending was perfect and I’m dying to know what will happen next to Misao.

    **Loved** the castration joke. One of the best parts of the series is when the author makes fun of obvious alternate solutions or plot holes.

"If he won't agree or if I am unable to see him, I know it's dangerous, but I will go and be a decoy. This is the only way we can end it quickly." What does this even mean, "will go and be a decoy so we can end it quickly"? A decoy for what? End what quickly? All I got out of "quickly" was that she promised her mom she'd be home the next day.

    It seems that the Tengu clan are getting impatient with the sluggish progression of the main characters. I myself though am happy that there hasn't been any progression. Most manga falls prey to this personal moral breach. Anyhow it's the Christmas volume, and there is a bit of slapstick that is starting to make me warm to the supporting characters.

    Like, the fascinating thing about this volume (or was it 4?) Misao suggests sleeping together once just to get the clan off her ass and Kyo flips shit because you know, all the physical things in the relationship must be on the pretty boy's terms. I swear this relationship is a textbook case of abuse, but at least the artwork is pretty so there's something. Like, the fascinating thing about this volume (or was it 4?)

    The sexiness ramps up in this volume, but, for reasons undisclosed, they can't go all the way. I feel like they're maybe using too narrow a view of "sex," here, especially for inexperienced teens. Regardless, both sides are angsting about it. There's more behind-the-scenes plotting, and a visit to the tengu's ancestral home. The sexiness ramps up in this volume, but, for reasons undisclosed, they can't go all the way.

    Possibly one of the most important volumes of Black Bird. Misao comes to Kyo's home over the mountains. Things don't go exactly as everyone planed and the cliffhanger will leave Misao in a very frightening predicament. Black Bird fans can't afford to miss this one.

While Misao's mom seems thrilled that Misao was dating a childhood friend she is still incapable of remembering, getting Kyou's family to accept her might be a more difficult challenge. Kyou's brother Sohou might remain imprisoned inside of the compound, but he's still devising a plan to regain leadership of his clan at all costs. Meanwhile, Misao not only gets to briefly meet Kyou's grandfather, she also meets Sagami's infirm (and extremely bubbly wife) Ayame. Things seem to complicate further when we gain more hints what might happen if Kyou consumates his marriage with Misao... Perhaps this volume lowers the tension in comparison with the prior volume, it still continues to be a strong and steady series that continues to be very fun to read.

    Not much happens in this volume. Kyo takes Misao back to his village where the patriarch expects him to breed with her or lose clan leadership in favour of his imprisoned brother. His only other alternative is to kill his brother.... We also get some nice exploration of Sagami and we meet his terminally ill wife. Enjoyable and engaging with beautiful art but this is stretching the story a bit and isn't the best volume. Not much happens in this volume.

    Better than volume 4. Miaso still cries about everything (unfortunately) but we're getting a better look at the Tengu clan. Ayame was really a sweet character and gives a bit of humanity to Sagami. Glad to see the story progressing along with the relationship between Kyo and Misao. Really Wish she'd stop crying so much, it makes all the romance-ish scenes feel a bit rapey. Better than volume 4.

    I was confused at first by Ayame calling Sagami by the name Ryo. But then, it was explained that Sagami is more of a position or title. I’m really interested to see what happens with the new Sojo. Visiting Tengu No Sato has really progressed both the storyline and Kyo and Misao’s relationship. I really enjoyed this one.

    I liked that this volume had character/plot summary at three beginning, it was useful even though I just read volume 4 because it reminded me of what had happened in previous volumes. I like the pacing of this series. The bonus manga is not as cute this time as it was last time.
