I don't know why, but i end up liking much more the characters from flashbacks than the current ones lol in One Piece young Whitebeard and Gold Roger are the best, in Naruto there are the old Hokages and other legendary ninjas, in Bleach young Isshin and the vizards were awesome, i loved Judeau in Berserk etc. etc. now Toriko too, young Jirou and the others are epic, i'm loving this flashback!
I love flashbacks too, and it's so sad how the major villain so often seems like such a good character who must end up going through something awful enough to corrupt them. Madara and Hashirama's relationship in Naruto is a great example, Bleach less-so since we, as of now, have no real history on where any major villains came from lol. HSDK is another good example. However it's especially sad in this one, because Midora was basically a rolling calamity from the moment he was born, and it was never once his fault...yet. He was basically being set up to hate the world and become a villain, yet instead of doing so he nearly died instead and was saved by some awesome people. He seems humbled by their kindness, so it's sad that he goes completely evil eventually since apparently not even people of the caliber of Acacia and Frohze could redeem him. I really hope jealousy of the other disciples is not part of what makes him such a monster, and I'm further confused as to how he seems to show such tension towards Jirou yet is obsessed with Ichiryuu who barely said two words in this chapter lol. I guess we'll see how that changes in the next one.
On that note, it looks like we have a clear connection between the nitro and the four beast, likewise it looks like the nitro intend to sacrifice a huge number of people during the gourmet eclipse, probably as a necessary step to acquiring GOD, and apparently PAIR is sentient and clairvoyant.
I agree that the Prader-Willi syndrome was a stretch and not an accurate description of Midora's condition, but your reaction is incredibly inappropriate. Please don't flame people over what could have been either a mistake or just a bad analogy, it makes you look even worse. He clearly read something like this which is SPOT ON for Midora:
That's one of symptoms of this disorder, though the other symptoms are not right. As is the cause, as you stated.Quote:
