Great volume. My favorite thing about this series is all of the layers of social and historical issues. It not only expands the world in which the manga takes place, but it also provides parallels to our society as well. Issues like war, "racism" (hatred/fear of robots in this case), AI fear and advancement, loss, etc. are all important in this volume. Urusawa crafts all of the components seamlessly together to make a powerful volume. I say this in most of my reviews for the volumes of this series, but I highly recommend these books.
