Review by madmarch
Excellent- even better than the previous volume, and with even more references to the "Alice" books. You also get to see more of characters such as Zwei, Raven, the Intention of the Abyss, and best of all, the enigmatic Xerxes Break.
Review by catfantastic
[SPOILERS]In the second volume of <i>Pandora Hearts</i>, Oz learns that ten years have passed while he was trapped in the Abyss, and his little friend Gilbert is now the gunslinging, Gothic, Raven. They also learn about the <i>incuse</i>, a clock-like mark branded onto a person's skin, if they have a contract with a chain. The incuse counts down the time until they are pulled back into the Abyss. Everyone with a contract is marked with an incuse, including Oz. The story grows as more details about the world of <i>Pandora Hearts</i> become clear, and the bond of friendship between Oz, Gilbert/Raven, and even Alice, deepens. The art style is very smooth and clean with cute character designs. An easy manga to read & enjoy.
