Volume 16 of 07-Ghost starts off by telling us that Karr is actually Ea and Katsuragi is actually Landkarte. This makes Karr and Katsuragi two of the seven ghosts. A lot of things were revealed in this volume. For example, we get a lot of flashbacks. We see each character in their youth, which gives us a bit of insight into how each person works.

Landkarte is able to obtain information on Teito by reading Karr’s memories. Teito was on the run but Landkarte finds him and is able to get the upper hand. Fortunately, Frau saves the day. We get more flashbacks from Teito’s point of view as well when he finally remembers everything. We finally know the truth about the Ragg’s war and we learn more about Teito and Frau. It is obvious that the story is pretty close to ending since we are getting a lot of new information. Some former plot holes are starting to come together in a way that keeps us glued to our seat.

 

In the middle of the huge battle that takes place, Teito begins to wonder if there is any good still inside of Landkarte. However, Teito also believes that he must be killed. This is because the Eye of Mikael broke. At the end of the volume, Teito learns that something has happened to Frau. He goes back in time in order to try to contact a younger version of Frau. This provides some comedy since the younger version of Frau constantly rejects his attempts at contact.

New revelations are everywhere in this volume of 07-Ghost. There is not much that can be said without revealing them. However, I will say that it was highly enjoyable and extremely intense. I did not want to put down the volume. There is only one volume left and I can only imagine how much more is left to the story. It may even be better than this volume. The story is coming together and everything is starting to make more sense. There should be plenty of plot twists and cliffhangers to keep readers interested. In addition, the drawing style is simply beautiful. I really enjoyed the way everything looked even. This is definitely not a volume that you want to miss.
