Once upon a time there was a reviewer who accidentally deleted something he did not intend to. Horrified, our hero, hit the undo button which deleted an entire half done review for some reason.
The moral of this story... Never trust the undo button; or the redo button for that matter.
Now onto the(freshly retyped) review!
My apartment was in that building....My autographed collection of Elton John records!!
This week starts out with Sangeen trying to flee from the Blonde Troll and the Rasta-douche(if you are beginning to tire of these names I assure you when the series actually tells me what to call them I will switch to that.....probably) . They catch up to him fairly quickly though and the douche tells the troll the stay out of the fight. The Troll comments that "I won't interfere even if you die.", which annoys the douche a little.
Sangeen tries to fight him but is quickly overwhelmed by his opponents power and durability and as the douche prepares to deliver the final blow he apologizes to Yontsu for leaving her behind(a possible indication that they might actually be married). Fortunately for him, just then M-21 hits the Cerberus people with shock bombs and uses the opening to snatch Sangeen.
At first he tries to run but realizes that he can't move fast enough to escape the pursuing Rasta-douche while carrying Sangeen. So, while ignoring Sangeen's pleas to be left behind, they turn to engage the douche.
At Tao's order Takeo puts 3 sniper rounds into the douches leg which sets him up for M-21 to nail him full force from above; as Sangeen looks on in stunned amazement at M-21's power.
Meanwhile back at Casa de Frankenstien. Raizel falters while drinking coffee, and Frankenstein appears to have 4 simultaneous heart attacks, only to find out that this reaction was due to him forgetting to put sugar in his master's coffee.
RK-4 special technique! THUNDER BALLS! Wait, that doesn't sound right.....
The fight has gone well for the RK-3 so far. We'll have to wait till next week to find out if M-21's powerful attack did any significant damage but so far it seems like 3 on 1 they can fight this guy effectively.
The wild card is going to be the Troll. If he stays down for a bit or sticks to his word and doesn't interfere even if the douche dies, obviously that would be ideal; as I still think 3 on 2 would not go well for the RK-3. Especially since Sangeen looks so banged up that he would likely lose a fight with a sickly kitten right now.
The only non-combat thing of note was that Sangeen thought of Yontsu making a gentle face when he was about to die. I don't think that's quite confirmation that they are married but it's consistent with the idea that they would be. If the series gives me one more of those moments I'll believe they really have tied the knot.
Very pretty character artwork, especially the attacks and Sangeen looking all torn up. The background stuff was a little shoddy though making it hard at times to get a feel for where they are fighting.
I like the way this RK-3 fight is being done though. It's got a distinct focus on teamwork even more than the fight with Rael did. Which is nice to see.
Great combat chapter, but the lack of definition in the background scenery holds the fight back from being a completely fluid experience
I give it a 4 out of 5
- The Blonde-Troll will get involved before the Rasta-douche gets killed.
My Previous Predictions(Current Record 7-8)Man, it is not lookin' good for a TON of my predictions right now. It's going to be somewhat embarrassing if I end up 8 for 20.
But, worry not, I will soldier on and continue to be wrong with gusto
Thread Question of the Week
Is the Troll going to stay out of this, or are events going to take a turn for the worse?
