Enjoyable but unspectacular chapter. The actual game was kinda dull and anticlimactic but Miseng seeking strength thing was "ok". Though that particular narrative beat is starting to seems just a little stale for me.
I guess we'll see about this Mad Dog Yama guy. Can't say I'm super-excited about him just yet (a tattooed tough guy...*yawn*) but what does seem like it could be good is what I see in the listings for Group 4.
Goseng vs Horyang. Now THAT's interesting.
Not interested in any of these preliminary individual rounds, the plug game period the way SIU is developing it just isn't very interesting. The good thing is that having all these rounds take place simultaneously we will be over and done with the individual rounds in just 2 or so more chapters. Seeing Mad Dog kill everyone else on his platform really won't be all that great. Does nothing to hype him up or anything.
I could see Lesoo actually not make it to the team rounds. Which will allow him to find Hatsu and learn more about Gongbang's shenanigans and Emile. I also don't see Baam being put on any team other than FUG's for the team round. Koon might accumulate the most money from the individual rounds, but he wants to defeat, actually crush, FUG and then take back Baam.
Man i want a mad dog vs viole roud asap. He is definitely stronger than androssi if viole can tie or defeat him then this is a proof that he is stronger than any thing we have seen from the S1 team.
I hope mad dog has an interesting personality, not generic. So far I don't like his design,
Maybe it will grow on me.
SIU wanted him to look like a tough guy, hence the cliches. tatoos shackles long hair muscled exterior... pur lease these are text book description of a 'i dont give a dam*' like tough guy.
not interested at least in how he looks though hope he really packs a punch and is a worthy adversary for baam.
So far Baam did fight people much stronger than him but most were conditional, in a battle between equals like baam and mad dog it will be interesting as they will fight all out
The Company translation is out, having read it again (with the missing pages) it was actually an enjoyable chapter.
This time I noticed Prince and Miseng's matching outfits, hahah. And Verdi is so creepy.
