Magical Girl Apocalypse volume 2

This is a review for Magical Girl Apocalypse vol. 2 by Kentaro Sato.
I gave this book ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ 4 stars, I liked it a lot.

"Death By A Thousand Cuties!"

Spoiler Warning!
This is a review for the second volume in a series.  To read my review of the first volume click here: Volume 1 If you choose to read the review for the second volume first you may find some spoilers for the first volume!

Synopsis:  In what is continuing to be the weirdest day of his like Kii Kogami and the few survivors he was able to find have taken refuge in a mall.  The mall may not be as safe as they hope and the Magical Girls aren't the only problems the ragtag band of survivors have to face.  They have to band together and start thinking about what they know about the magical menace if they want to survive.

This volume continues to be equal parts hilarious, disgusting and over the top ridiculous.  There are numerous pop culture references made in this volume.  New kinds of magical girls are appearing and the plot seems to be progressing nicely.  It isn't just mindless running from certain death, the characters are searching for ways to win and survive the apocalypse. 

As I said before, if you are looking for the next "Sailor Moon" keep going.  If you liked "Love in Hell" or "High School of the Dead" you will probably like this series.  It is definitely still not for those with weak stomachs!

Trigger Warning: there is an attempted rape in this volume.
