Will Haruhiko waste time reminiscing over Demon Mercurio while some dude insults Yuka and tries to win Eukanaria to his side? Not if he’s a red-blooded teenager, he won’t.

What They Say
The adventures of Haruhiko, Yuka, and Eukanaria continue in the next installment of this hit series. Will the truth behind Yuka and Fulcanelli's relationship finally be revealed? Will Haruhiko finally give up the fight and give his body over to Fulcanelli's soul?
The loss of Demon Mercurio has been a tough thing for Haruhiko to deal with. I wonder if he would have eventually redirected his love from Yuka to Demon Mercurio given enough time. It is not all that far-fetched considering Yuka is oblivious to Haruhiko’s feelings and Demon Mercurio was completely in love with him.
Eukanaria doesn’t seem phased by Demon Mercurio’s disappearance as she cheerfully pops from one school fair booth to another until she discovers goldfish scooping. As a demon, Eukanaria missed everyday childhood events, so she is easily entertained. However, newcomer Hokuto is less than impressed. He is a smartass engineering college student with another demon trying to make a pact with him and turn him into an Enchanter. Hokuto isn’t that interested in his demon, but Eukanaria tickles his fancy.
Having another dude try to steal my Demon would probably piss me off, but Haruhiko is more ticked off at Hokuto for insulting Yuka. Hokuto is a serious jerk. He hates people that aren’t as smart as he is and he wastes no time insulting Yuka for not knowing how to build a computer. Seriously? What a dick. Nevertheless, for all his hatefulness, Hokuto calls Haruhiko on his codling of Yuka. He accuses Haruhiko of inflating his own ego by always being around to help Yuka with electronics. This sets up an interesting situation between these two guys. They are both extremely intelligent and talented, but where Haruhiko is always there to help those around him, Hokuto would rather die than lend anyone a bit of help. I’m sure these two will become fast rivals and I am interested to see how things go, especially with Hokuto aiming to bag Eukanaria.
This is another good volume in a string of great volumes. Haruhiko spends time reflecting on recent events and the story shifts from one story arc to the next. Still, I highly recommend this series.
