“It’s fine to drop that poker face. If you’re in pain.”
A clown is dead! Hooray! This is the first time they’ve sustained a casualty, right? Please make the next one Roma, she needs to quickly die. As Hirako is occupying Uta’s attention, Roma is one wrecking the most havoc on the CCG members, and that grin really pisses me off for some reason. Uta is a douche too, but he doesn’t deserve to die here, or to a Hirako who I’m sure is suffering deep down. It’s not the right stage for someone as significant as Uta to go.
But overall, it was a fairly static chapter – in terms of new events, that is. The bulk of it was a continuation of the current fights all throughout the auction building, with nothing on Akira vs Ayato and Haise vs Takizawa. Dammit, I was looking forward to those so much! And it doesn’t look like there’ll be any next week either, as I think the focus will be on Nutcracker and poor Shirazu. He’s the most amiable of the Quinx Squad, and to me he’s the one who least deserves to suffer or get hurt. As for Mutsuki and Saiko, I’m more afraid that they’ll die if they take a hit like that instead of anything else. That just leaves Urie – and I’ve expressed my dislike of him before. Surprisingly, they’re not having too many problems – perhaps Urie really has gotten a lot stronger now that he’s been given his upgrades. It’s either that or Juuzou’s presence, and I still don’t like how he’s essentially being ungrateful at the fact that Juuzou is there to (more or less) save his life.
Finally, I’m liking the overall updates we’re getting at the end of each chapter. It gets hard to keep up with who’s fighting who and how close they are to each other, so it’s really helpful!
