Read full description of the books MPD Psycho, Volumen 6:Stuff I Read – MPD Psycho Vol 6 Review
So following the events of last volume, this one jumps forward a bit, and a lot of weird stuff is happening. So Amamiya hasn’t returned since where he walked off at the end of the last volume, and no one knows where he’s gone off to. The volume opens with Machi’s sister Miwa being operated on, and apparently “activated” in the psycho sense of the word. Which is a bit out of left field, but is well in keeping with the idea that everyone in this manga is a psycho killer. But yes, so Miwa gets some eye surgery and we are shown the continued experiments with having a personality jump from one person to the next. Really this volume can be described as happening in two parts. The first is concerned with Machi and the police detective and more specifically the detective trying to find out who sent Machi a letter bomb a long time ago that cost her two of her fingers. The second part is much more dealing with the evil organization and its splinter group and both trying to create some sort of super perfect killer.
The first part with the detective is pretty standard faire as far as the series in concerned, only with a few twists. We see that someone is going out of their way to make people who have inconvenienced Machi die. This takes on a rather comic tone because most of the people are people who Machi herself never really even noticed. So this stalker is deciding who dies in a rather ridiculous way. In any event, the police detective wants to solve this case as a thank you to Machi because he is being reassigned because of his involvement in a lot of the shady business that has been going on. As he describes it, he knows too much but can’t be used, so the government is shuffling him away. In any event, this storyline has a few twists and such, but from the start it seems like this isn’t really what it seems, like this stalker is being influenced by Miwa to restart this whole thing. We learn later that she can influence people’s minds somehow, but not really why she is doing what she is doing aside from her being awakened. But so the stalker eventually takes Machi and showing her what he’s trying to do and it ends hilariously enough with the Miwa in his head forcing him to kill himself because he is bothering Machi. It’s quite odd.
The second part of the volume is where we learn a bit more about what is going on, though by no means do we get a clear picture. We do learn that this whole thing, the whole series of experiments, is really designed to get the correct personalities together, to make a complete killer, a new Lucy. Which, okay, is a bit insane but I’m just going with that for now, despite it not being present at all earlier. But yes, so the kid who can transfer personalities is getting moved and basically it is revealed that Miwa is half of the perfect killer and this kid is the other half. They were supposed to be on a plane together so they could merge, but the kid was redirected and now is in the hands of the splinter group, as are Machi and the detective. And Miwa is acting all sorts of odd, and suddenly people are starting to reappear, rise from the dead, or be clones or something like that. It really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but we are left with Miwa on the plane and the kid elsewhere, so in theory nothing will really happen, but then it turns out Amamiya/Nichizono is on the plane too, and I don’t really know what that means.
And in the end I am still very confused about all of this. Because I don’t really see what this awakening is supposed to do to someone, and if they are supposed to be being controlled or if it is rather that they are who they are but with their morals turned off. It is a bit confusing. Also, new powers seem to be emerging all the time, which is a little distracting. It’s like the author is kind of making this all up as he goes, without a definite plan. And I’ve been in campaigns like that and they don’t typically end well. I mean to say they don’t typically end, but if they do they are extremely confusing and don’t usually manage to reign in all the dangling plot threads. But I guess there is still a lot to this manga, so I have to just give it time. This volume, however, was good for what it was. It still isn’t doing a great job telling me what’s happening, but it is an entertaining ride. A 7.5/10.
