Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Vol. 5: Mobilization - Yoshiki Tanaka,Tyran Grillo

Once again Yang wins not loses by the grace of Reinhard.  This one doesn't feel as believable as the other ones, since it's more or less a Deus Ex Machina.

Though it does showcase how smart Mariendorf is in pulling it off.

We also get to see Julian on his own with the Terra-ists.

Once again, another ass pull saves the day for both parties. Yang won't have to kill Lohengramm and vice versa.

 

It's kind of getting a bit contrived right now.

I find it interesting that one or the other between Yang and Reinhard only gets an advantage when someone screws up.

Not much rally happens other than Julian meeting a Terra's cult bishop... however that will play out fatally much later in the book series.

The Young Master’s Revenge, Vol. 1
The Young Master’s Revenge, Vol. 1 - Mec... The Young Master’s Revenge, Vol. 1 - Meca Tanaka 3.25 stars

This was kind of meh. The art is pretty, but the story has a been there, done that feeling to it. There really wasn't anything to set it apart. Leo is supposed to be burning with the need for revenge against Tenma for a childhood incident, but he's really not the evil villain he thinks he is. His bland personality doesn't work well for a guy thirsting to get back at the beautiful, clumsy, and sweet Tenma. I'll read another volume to see if gets better for me, but right now, it left only an impression of mediocrity. It's a quick read, it's pleasant enough, but it's not going to stick with me for the long haul.
