DITVB: Memories of Sledgehammer Volume 3 Review: Savage Humans

In the final volume of the spinoff series we see Hama finally going fave to face with the man and organization that threatens his semi peaceful life with the girl he loves and the friends he's made. Bolton has been behind the attacks this entire time. He and Hama have been fighting for 10 years and only Bolton knew about t. He was there during Gotoh's capture in Afghanistan, and even killed Ellie's father in order to gain control over the organization. He's been counting his steps this entire time.

Though, as I stated before, Memories of Sledgehammer is a good spinoff, it definitely is not a strong as the main story. Bolton is a good villain though not as great as Rozenmann and the other tyrants that threatened Mina and Akira. The twist and turns revolving around Hama, Clarissa, Gotoh, Nicole, and  Bolton was quite thrilling while it lasted.

My only problem with this story is that the final fight was very lackluster. The shoot out and Hama turning beast to take out the rest of the henchmen was fine but the fight between him and Bolton never concluded. After the explosion Bolton stabs Hama then Hama is saved by Clarissa. A better ending would have Hama ripping Bolton's face off like he did the henchmen. It was a very anticlimactic ending but Hama and Gotoh are together again.

If I had to rate this side story I would rate it a 7/10. There needed to be more action especially after those last few volumes of the main storyline. The love story between Gotoh and Hama was fine as well as the overarching theme but it all just seems a little flat compared to what we're used to from the author Tamaki. Solid work but I can't wait tot finally move on to the final arc.
