Well, that dream dagger was really a big asspull...
I hate it when something is used before being introduced, it always seems like it's coming out of nowhere...
Soooo, the thorn's out and ready to play. Should make things entertaining and Reflejo's remaining lifespan pretty short. Of course, Androssi shines bright, and makes things pretty interesting. How is it possible that someone would underestimate a Zahard Princess?
While I really liked the chapter I can't help but think SIU is relying too much on Deus ex machina. SIU put Baam & co in a situation where they couldn't have won as the enemy had a hostage & was nearly undefeatable. I was getting excited as it was some serious situation & I thought SIU would show his creativity here. When Koon said he had a plan to turn out the situation, I thought it would be something cunning but SIU just created some random artifact out of thin air. It disappoints me that an impossible situation was created whose solution was ****.
Ok, Baam has unlocked the Thorn.
That part with Xia Xia was interesting . I agree that this weapon of Koon was too convenient, I thought Mad Dog would destroy Androssi, I am glad she has the advantage.
Yes, i was right :-D Chapter was okay and nice tactic of Androssi+hatsu.... and so far. it may be an asspull but it suits the name... heavenly mirror... normally someone would be dead.. if hit in the heart... but nope.. also it traps someone.. in his mirror like blade :-) .. i hope the next two sklills are no asspull xD
besides.. it was mad dog who has the blood tiara or?
Uh, this ability of the WHM was pretty lame. I'm not talking about the ability itself, but how it was implemented in the current situation/plot. Too convenient. Honestly, I expected something more tricky from Aguero. Actually, it's quite a shock that someone like Aguero didn't come up with that plan the instant Reflejo used Hwa Ryun as a hostage the first time.
Androssi makes really good use of her arsenal. On top of that, she also uses her head, despite being so powerful. But I can't stop thinking that this Bonbon is unbelievable overpowered and shouldn't be in possession of someone already this powerful. The same actually goes for Baam and the Thorn. I know those items are necessary right now, but what is SIU planning after this arc?
All in all, the action in this chapter was great. I just don't like those items.
I've come to trust in SIU to pull off something unpredictable, and yet these new developments were sadly quite predictable. Bunny changing sides because she has feelings for Baam, Koon using the Heavenly Mirror to get out of the situation with Hwa Ryun, and Androssi getting the advantage over Mad Dog through Bon Bon. The last bit is a shame, because I really wanted to see just how powerful Mad Dog truly was. I guess in the previous few chapters his powers seemed too Hax that in order to defeat him there needed to be an asspull.
All in all SIU's storytelling has dropped quite a few levels, at least to me, for this tournament arc and the previous one shot one opportunity arc. Who knows, maybe his injury is not only hampering the artwork, but the plot/ideas/storytelling as well.
As for Bonbon, it's limited by weight and distance so there is that, plus at higher floors with greater shinsoo density, it may turn out to be much less useful. That's if they're allowed to keep the items.
Too bad, but hopefully his wrist will get better

I doubt the bad writing is related to his wrist injury. ToG is suffering in story telling badly from last two years.
My last hope of Varagharb being a sadist killer blew away with the plot quality of the chapter. He, born into a survival battle world, and only stand creating minions to attack.
What a pity.
SIU end this shit quickly, go to rest please, come back with the old crude ToG and don't give a shit about sissy developments because Baam could be sad.
