Again Volume 5 is a Del Rey published book. I'm thankful they picked up the series, but the work they did could have been better. Some of the dialogue for some pages get cut off, mainly due to either wordy translations or not enough page space.
In Volume 5, Akito/Agito enrolls in Ikki's school after the whole ordeal in Volume 4 and decides to ride with him in the team he will be creating. Ikki creates the (legendary to-be) Storm Rider team, Kogarasumaru, and includes members Akito/Agito, Kazu, Buccha, and Onigiri. Team Kogarasumaru also have their 'debut' match against Sabel tiger, the first of many official matches to reach the Trophaeum.
I finally got to collecting the volumes of one of my favorite series, starting off with Volume 3 (buying cheapest, best condition ones first). First, I must say, I sure am glad Kodansha picked up the series from Volume 18 onwards. Del Rey, unfortunately, was doing a pretty bad printing job. The dialogue from some of the characters on various pages throughout the volume, get cut off, due to insufficient space.
Volume 3 is mainly about Ikki vs Buccha, after Buccha beats up Ikki's friends Kazu and Onigiri. The winner of the "parts war" will dominate the school.
For the digital version, starting with volume 3, the later volumes are either missing pages or the pages are cropped to the point of being unreadable. They should not have been released in this condition. Do not buy if you intend to collect more than the first two volumes digitally.
