Book Review: Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice 5

Review:  #690
Title:  Puella Magi Kazumi Magica:  The Innocent Malice 5
Series:  Puella Magi Kazumi Magica:  The Innocent Malice - 5th and final volume
Author:  Masaka Hiramatsu
Read Before:  no
Comments:  Despite a generally messy plot up until now, the finale of Kazumi Magica is actually pretty good.  The action sequences seem to be easier to decipher what’s happening and the plan of Kanna, and Kazumi’s role in it, was quite riveting.  Kazumi embraces the fact that she is a clone and finds a way to accept and rectify that.  On the other hand, the scale of the Pleiades’ plan of cloning Kazumi was much more intense than initially hinted at.  The flashbacks served went a long way in clarifying what had actually happened in order for things to get up until this point.  The ending was on the tragic side due to the numerous deaths but a hopeful one too.  At the end of it all, Kazumi Magica manages to expand meaningfully on the Magica universe.
Rating:  6/10
