Review: Children of the Sea, Volume 2

6408556 Children of the Sea, Volume 2 by Daisuke Igarashi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The sea has a story to tell you, one you’ve never heard before… Umi and Sora are not alone in their strange connection to the sea. Forty years ago, Jim met another young boy with the same powers. As penance for letting the boy die, Jim has been searching the world for other children with those same ties to the ocean. Anglade, a wunderkind who was once Jim's research partner, lures Sora away with the promise of answers. This leaves Umi severely depressed, and it is up to Ruka to help her new friend find his brother. But time is quickly running out... When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea that she does. Ruka’s dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the ocean’s fish.

I think I'm starting to understand this series a little more. This one covered some Asian mythology, and seems to be the theme for this series. I am starting to like the characters more as I understand who everyone is. I love the artwork, and am excited to read more of this series! This is so different from the other manga I've read, but I think that's part of it's lure, that it is different, and I love that!
