***SPOILERS*** (view spoiler) This volume starts out with Kouta meeting Lucy on the beach after he had escaped from the hospital. Kouta snaps at her (Since he is still very upset about the fact Lucy killed his father and sister.) when she tried to touch him and says that he has something to show her. Kouta (still being in rough shape from being shot) collapses and Lucy ends up carrying him to the place he wanted to show her, a lighthouse overlooking the sea. He tells her that his sister loved the view from this lighthouse and asked "WHY DID YOU KILL MY DAD AND KANAE?" Lucy explains to him that she has multiple personalities, one that wants to destroy mankind and one that wants to coexist with mankind, furthermore, she explains that she had always wanted make up for the fact that she killed his father and sister. Meanwhile Nana is searching for Kouta and her father is searching for Lucy. Kouta rejects her apology and tells her "I CAN NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR KILLING KANAE AND FATHER. Nana's father is holding a gun to Lucy's head as she comes down the stairs. Nana's father is holding his bleeding arm when Kouta comes down the stairs. Kouta sees Lucy standing over Nana's father and says "What have you done.." Lucy snaps back to being herself pleading that she didn't do anything wrong. Kouta starts crying saying "You... Lucy starts to FREAK out saying that, "SHE WONT FORGIVE THE PEOPLE THAT HURT THE ONES SHE LOVES!" Her power explodes from her and she is holding Kouta's lifeless body. "Her power is unlimited, but her body is limited." She falls back onto the tower and starts screaming at Kouta to come back to life. Yuka asks Kouta why there is a hand on the ground and he replies, "Its Nyuu's..." then she sees her disintegrating. If you resist, you will be sentenced to death for treason." Kouta asks them all to leave and that he will stay with Nyuu alone and says, "You put your life on the line for save me.. I'm here to kill you." then he says to Kouta, "If you interfere... I will kill you as well." Lucy says to Kouta, "Kouta, please go. She kills all of the soldiers that have surrounded her and Kouta and begins to destroy everything once again, but this time she says, "A lot of people are gonna die... IF I ever end up killing a lot of people...Kouta... Then please, Kill me." Lucy and Nyuu go on to explain that as long as she is alive a lot more people will end up dying and that Kouta must kill her, before the illusions that are protecting him disappear and she ends up destroying the world. There is a flashback of when the two were younger and Lucy says to Kouta, "I want Kouta to kill me. Lucy starts crying and says, "Kouta...Do you remember that place where there's a huge block of stone? Kouta kill me..." Kouta picks up a gun and points it at Lucy, but he cant do it. As the final line of the Manga says, "And then, I killed Nyuu." Their lives go back to normal. (The spelling of her name can mean either Little Nyuu or Kaede.) His daughter says to him, Papa, Are you waiting for a friend here?" he says, "Yeah, your're right! -To Kouta, From Kaede." Kouta starts crying and says, "Finally, I could meet...

I personally loved it, there was just far more than violence behind the whole story of people with horns sticking out of their skull. Awesome graphic novel!!

It had some weak moments and the story didn't feel entirely planned out.

The character of Nozumi (the singer) was pretty worthless to the story. Not my favorite manga but still pretty ok.
