Read my review for Genkaku Picasso Vol. 1 here.
As in Volume 1, Volume 2 is once again centered around the main characters of Hikari ‘Picasso’ Hamura, a budding artist, and his angel best friend Chiaki Yamamoto, both of whom are school-aged teens. They are joined by some of the people helped by Picasso and Chiaki from the first book, now friends of Picasso. I liked the continuation and inclusion of more characters, especially since they had been helped by Picasso and Chiaki and were then in a position to help others.
I enjoyed the second volume of stories even more than the first, mainly because it faced a lot of even more challenging topics; bullying, gender identification and finding the courage to follow your dreams and work hard to make them come true. Difficult topics for any book, but ones which I think were covered well – from my perspective at least.
I look forward to reading Volume 3!
