  I will say that Mondays are not my favorite day of the week. It's hard to get your mindset back on track after a relaxing weekend. I do, however, look forward to sharing my excitement reading manga with other bloggers and finding out new series to try. Thanks to Alison over at Alison Can Read for her meme of Manga Mondays. 

Description (back cover of the manga): Featured on the manga cover-Florence Nightingale (1820– 1910) British nurse who made tremendous contributions to the modern nursing system. Received her nursing education in Germany before serving as chief nurse in a London hospital. Drafted into military service during the Crimean War, Nightingale strove to improve sanitation amid the wretched conditions of the military field hospital she managed. Also recognized as a pioneering statistician for her tireless compilation of statistical materials. During her military service, her beneficence and dedication to her hospital rounds at night earned her the nicknames “ the Lady with the Lamp” and “ the Angel of the Crimea.”

Review: Unlike the first three volumes, Volume 4 of Afterschool Charisma is filled with non-stop action. The identities of the terrorists who quietly executed a vicious attack on St. Kleio Academy. Spoiler! The assassins are in fact an older generation of the exact same clones in the school. Many are left dead in the aftermath, picked off one by one. The Almighty Dolly, which was said to protect them, is rendered useless and a scam. 
  There are of life changing moments for some of our clones. Shiro's nightmare is now his reality. We finally know what happened to Marie Curie who "left" the academy because she didn't want to pursue the sciences like her original but music. We also see the psychotic wheels rolling in Adolf Hitler's clone, which we all know is not a good thing at all. 
 Though we do have a few answers, I'm still lost in the dark like our clones and have tons of questions. Why are the clones made every generation? Why are they made? Who is making them? How are they making them? Who is the head of this terrorist group and why bother eliminating the clones when they are constantly made? As you can tell, my head was spinning in all directions. The book ends with a clone ready to tell us how this all began. For me it's a terrible cliffhanger, since I can't get a hold of volume five yet from the library, but I'm dying to know! 

Rating: 4.5 stars

Words of Caution: Rated T+ for strong violence and some strong language. Recommended for older teens and up.

    What a tease to leave you with the one person who can answer all those questions! Kind of a beautiful torture:) Hope the next volume clears some things up for you Rummanah!

  2. Mangas always look like such fun to read, and this one sounds especially exciting!

    Nice review! :)

  3. Darn. I was at the bookstore the other day looking at mangas and couldn't remember the name of this manga. I looked up Black Butler and wanted to look up this series too. Oh well. Next time.

    Sorry I haven't commented in a few days. I was in Oregon for a quick vacation.

  4. This seris does sound like it is getting better better just from reading your reviews, I think when I do get a chance to check out this genre, this will be the series I start with. I hope, for your sake, the library gets a copy soon!

  5. Oh you so have me looking at manga. I have actually been checking out manga art books. It's all your fault! ;D
