Critical ResponseVolume 5 is well received by critics and earned generally good reviews. The volume got an A- for its story, art and overall grade by Nick Creamer on Anime News Network. The latter described the series to be "storming through an epic transition phase", along with a neutral remark of how he "feared the manga's change in both venue and genre space might find it stepping outside of its dramatic comfort zone". Eric Cline on Adventures in Poor Taste gave a 9 out of 10, commenting how the art is stellar and described the story to be "A pivotal and exciting turning point for the series. Great art and mystery elements elevate the already intriguing drama". Jeremy Snow on The Geekly Grind gave the story an 8.5/10, the art a 9/10, the characters a 9.5/10 and the pacing a 9/10. Snow remarked how the volume has great world-building and character development.
