Synopsis

Having penetrated Carillon Tower, the nerve center of the Egrigori organization bent on creating a cyborg-dominated future for humankind, the Arms race to lay waste to the center's facilities.

Hayato is suspicious of Bobby's eagerness to exterminate Ryou, when the enemy forces are focused on bringing down Knight. Apparently, Black had gotten to Bobby, promising him freedom in exchange for Ryou's life. Ryou only realizes this belatedly, but regret will have to wait, for Huey shows up. The NEXT Egrigori weapon surpasses previous combat cyborgs!

[With additions from Amazon's description of Project ARMS volume 16 (VIZ Media edition)]

This series was awarded the 1999 Shogakukan Manga Award for the shounen category, although it's still the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland influence that continues to intrigue me. As I babbled over on the Level 27 January manga post, one of these days, I'll actually get around to reading this thing, lurvin' Alice in Wonderland-inspired manga (yes, I'm talking about you, Heart no Kuni no Alice) like I do. The question is: will I get to read/catch up with this series before Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland premieres?
