While there are other stories in the series I like more (see my review of vol 8), this volume really contained some nice creepy stories. There's a nice mix of humor & horror, which is always a bonus for me.
The stories in this volume are a dead otaku turned work robot, plastic surgery gone horrifically wrong & a murder on the set of a big movie. The movie murder is the biggest story of the volume, but it's the one about plastic surgery that really creeped me out. The surgery episode is about a clinic that advertises that they can make you look exactly like a famous celebrity, starting with her ears. (When you do discover how they're growing the ears, it's pretty creepy looking.)
I really did enjoy this volume overall & it was nice to see more development surrounding a rival/opponent group for the Kurosagi crew. (the Shirosagi group) As always, the volume showed quite a bit of my current favorite character, Numata- who often serves as the comic relief, something that is often needed in this series. The return of Shirosagi really does bring the story level up a bit, making this more than a one-off series & giving the potential for longer story arcs. So far though, the stories are still mostly one-offs with a few threads that loop over the entire series.
