Is it just me, or are we getting chapters out faster. Well, I'm going to get a bit off-topic but it Japan had put in some piracy laws, making it harder to get manga chapters out earlier (They come out the next Wednsday while we get them on Friday-Monday before it's officially released). I think that we're more likely to get new chapters on Friday's-Sundays since people find a way to get around it. Anyways, thats just a PSA. ONTO THE CHAPTER THAT DIDN'T GO AS I EXPECTED.
|I'm starting to realize why Hendy made it in the top 10 character polls.|
Now we started right where we left off... With Gil and Howzer reaching their potential. Howzer begins to use formal stances and makes a successful blow while Gil concentrates his magic to shield himself, making a bulky wall of defense for him that's known as the "Heavy Armor of The Thunder Emperor". Realizing it's doing damage, they foolishly let down their guard and wake up, once again defeated. They had the right idea, but let down their guard. Knowing this, they begin to get ready before they jump right into the fray.
|I can hear the fujoshis in the distance.|
|I don't know which I find funnier, Gowther's nonchalance to getting his cut or his compliment to his body.|
|Give this boy a cookie.|
Opinion: First of all, I like how real the training is going for Gil and Howzer, originally I thought they were going to ace it but they still have much to learn and I appreciate that. As for Arthur and Gowther, I liked their comedy scene (Mainly Gowther) and it's a interesting combo. Now for the main pair up that interested me. King and Meliodas. Origianally, I thought it would be King and Hendy but what happened with King and the Captain just spun this story again. I can't really blame King for his mindset since it is possible(Even though we know it's not) that Meliodas could be a spy from outsiders. Though I do think King is also at fault since I believe the stress of not saving Ban or Diane is getting to him.
Character of the Chapter: Gowther, for lightening up the mood before we got back into sub-plot.
Rating: 4.5/5 (Will I ever give this chapter anything less than a 3... or a 4?)
Predictions: The next chapter is called "To you, who is no longer my captain." I expect to see where we left off. I don't think there'll be a battle between the two of them right away, at least not yet. I also believe Meliodas will pick a boss level before continuing on with their fight (Basically a chat while fighting the boss since I assume it'll be nothing compared to King and Meliodas combined),
