Originally posted here at Anime Radius.
The shonen series Bakegyamon has entered its second volume and as the games get weirder and trickier, we see more and more of the people that have been pulled into the backwards games as well as the behind the scenes happenings on what made the backwards games possible. The emphasis is kept mostly on the games, but the deeper Sanshiro gets into Backwards Japan, the more he learns about his fellow competitors and how everything started in the first place. It is also a very pivotal volume as this is the book where Sanshiro gets a purpose: to save the monsters of the geki fu cards that have become his friends over the previous games. Up until that point, Sanshiro had been a very unconventional shonen hero compared to his contemporaries because he did not have a clear cut mission except to go on adventures. Compare that to either Naruto or One Piece, in which from day one we as an audience knew what the main protagonist's intentions were, whether they be to become the king of the pirates or become Hokage (which eventually shifted into saving Sasuke and stopping war from breaking out between nations). Now that Sanshiro has a solid goal, Bakegyamon now has an actual narrative path that isn't just reaching the end of the backwards games - it will be up to the following volumes to illustrate Sanshiro's newest resolve.
Sanshiro's newfound goal comes at a heavy price; he learns the truth about the geki fu cards and this revelation obviously weighs heavily on his heart as he decides what his wish will be when he wins. Suddenly, the backwards games don't seem as cute and silly as they do before, and the trickster Neid seems more sinister than before. For a children's manga, this is an unexpected turn in plot development; you have to wonder what would happen if similarly designed series like Pokemon took the same turn on the true nature of its numerous creature-filled cast. By showing that the monsters of the geki fu cards certainly did not come into the backwards game by choice, and that these actions helped draw in vulnerable children into the games, Bakegyamon's world seems more shadowier and suspect than before. How this will ultimately play out is not clear but it is obvious that Sanshiro will not give up on his promise to the geki fu creatures or to the young girl who lost her best friend to the backwards game.
As the games of Bakegyamon continue, readers get a more in-depth look into the children who have been gathered to participate in the backward games, from the monster-friendly Sayaka to the sneaky weasel Mick among others. In the chapter before the traffic game begins, we see glimpses of why these children were chosen in the first place; most of them are clever and talented in their own way which makes them likely candidates to win the final game. We know already why Sanshiro was chosen, although the specifics of why and what people like Neid and Fue have for him are unclear at the moment, but now we can see into the mindset of the people taken from their homes and put into the backward world. Not only does this illustrate the qualities of the children chosen to play, it also illustrates Sanshiro's own personal view of the world. For someone who has lived on a remote island all of his life, Sanshiro has only known the same people up until the appearance of Fue, in which he met the other children from all over the world. As the scope of the series expands, so does Sanshiro's own views of the world that he hasn't been able to see until now.
This series so far has put the emphasis on the children and the backwards games, although the focus is slowly shifting to the geki fu cards they use to play Neid's games. Even so, Bakegyamon succeeds at being a fast-paced and interesting manga of the shonen genre, defying the usual expectations of a children's series by being consistently entertaining and a delight to read. Considering its rise in storytelling quality, I expect the third book of this series will be just as good if not better.
