The introduction of White really brings some direction to this series. I have to admit that by the time I finished Volume One, it felt like it was going to be a typical story about a hot-headed trainer getting a Pokedex and going out to gather information for the region’s professor. While this is Black’s main objective, his meeting White and getting involved with show business brought something new to the table and made this volume a more interesting read.
Yamamoto’s art continues the impressive look that I saw in Volume One. White is a very well-designed character, and is almost equal with Professor Juniper in the realism department. In many respects, I think White’s look overshadows Black’s; this is especially true when they appear in panels together.
Overall, I would have to say that Pokemon Black and White Volume Two is an improvement over Volune One. However, it’s not quite as strong as the original Pokemon Adventures manga series.
