While I understand this story was included to introduce Zorua, the story really felt unnecessary and out of place in the volume. I wish the manga had found a better way to introduce Zorua in the series.
When it comes to Volume Five, I enjoyed the stories that took place in Nacrene City. However, after Black and White left Nacrene City, I thought that the volume went downhill. Hopefully Volume Six will begin showing us what White is doing to prepare for the Pokemon musical in Nimbasa City.
Personally, I’ve found the Pokemon Black and White manga series to be rather “hit and miss.” My 14-year-old daughter, who considers herself to be a Pokemon fan, doesn’t like this particular Pokemon manga series; in her opinion, Pokemon Black and White strays too far from the story in the Pokemon Black and Pokemon White video games. However, if you are a fan of the Pokemon Black and White manga series, then you will probably like Volume Five.
