Manga Monday 27

Just a couple of short reviews this week with a few manga I'm a few volumes into now...next week: To Terra!
.
The Drifting Classroom (Volume 4)
Kazuo Umezu
.
I was getting a little bored with this title, to be honest, but this volume kind of reinvigorated my enthusiasm for the over-the-top sci-fi adventure. In this volume, the monster attacks! Plus....lots of screaming, maiming, etc. that ends on a cliffhanger that truly has me on the edge of my seat for the next installment. A
.
Death Note (Volume 10)
Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata
.
Death Note is a hard manga to review because it's such a plot-heavy book, but it's always a good read. It's more exciting at this point than it's been for awhile because it seems like things are getting a little out-of-control and any tiny little thing could topple Light from his throne. New characters join the cast, Kira's pursuers are closing in, and we're bound to have another climax soon because the tension is as thick as it's going to get. A
