Boring chapter. Felt like I was reading a Bleach chapter. Everything that happened could have been done in half the pages the authors used.
The art especially is suffering a lot at the time especially the fur of Kentas and M-21.
The authors even started to screw around with the power levels. I mean how can Takao be able to injure a WW with a single swing of his gun? The power levels should be so far that the skin of Kentas should have easily neutralized that attack. Against Yuri Takao used all his power to be able to make the same scratch that he did to Kentas.
If M-21 has really the heart of Muzakas son than that would surely put another crack in the relationship of Rai and Muzaka. Or do you think that Muzaka would stay still and let M-21 run around with the heart of his own son?
If M-21 starts to go toe to toe against Kentas then that would be the greates BS ever. Logically a human werewolf hybrid shouldn't be nowhere near a real WW.Besides the authors were inspired by DB where a hybrid of Sayajin and human had a greater potential than a pure-blood Sayajin.
At least the readers that rate Noblesse on Naver also agree that Noblesse is going downhill by not always giving it a 9.9 rating like in the past.
M-21 stumbles emotionally all the time, often going way overboard with it. Every time it does this it lessens the overall effect. He's kinda like the polar opposite of Raizel who never shows any emotion, which causes his smallest of reactions carry such weight.
Like in this situation he freezes up completely at the sight of another werewolf. Why? Because he'd never seen another werewolf before? What was he, in love? It was a reaction that was too over the top for me to empathize with. Sadly, that's just been his role lately.
Would be funny if it gets revealed that M-21 is the son of muzaka from a human women that the Union abducted.
I am all for more character development of M21, Tao, and Takeo. I'd like to see them use their teamwork to actually pull something off. Too long have I had to watch them be totally helpless, and be the whipping boys used to show the strength of the next bad guy. It's time for them to shine a little.
What I really question is devoting whole chapters to them and making everything super-emotional. I don't think that's the way to make them shine. We've covered this ground before in the series and the results have never been great. They just don't have the presence or spark the interest in me that characters like Frankenstein, Raizel, Seira, Karias, Regis, or even Raskreia do. Which is why stories of focused on them just don't hold up as well.
They are good supporting characters and that's the place I think they'd be more likely to shine; supporting other character's stories.
The other problem is that the next chapter will mostly be about M-21 new found power and the end of it to show that in the end it didn't have a great effect on Kentas. So another wasted chapter.
I would have quite a few questions about M-21's heart if it turned out it did indeed come from the Muzaka's loved one(How exactly did the was the experiment that created him not a bigger deal?) but I think thematically the idea of him becoming a Werewolf Lord or whatever late in the story would work. Since he's a blend of human and werewolf, it would get that same "Bridge to a new tomorrow" thing going.
With him the real problem is his personality. The series has really gone overboard with making him sensitive and emotional in recent arcs. If he's to be a believable fit among Werewolves, judging by what we've seen of them thus far, something needs to be done about that.
Right now I'm just assuming this is a normal powerup though. I'm not ready to buy into his heart being related to Muzaka just yet.
What if they exchanged muzakas and m-21s hearts? Its possible right?
Muzaka doesn't know M-21 or has any reason to go along with that. That would be kind of a big deal and Muzaka doesn't know M-21 plus he hates humans. That seems like a pretty tough sell.
Another big question in all this is Crombell. Because if I remember correctly Crombell was the one responsible for M-21's experiment. How did Crombell get that heart? Even if it's just an "ordinary" werewolf heart that's kind of impressive but if it was an "extraordinary" werewolf heart...how did he get that? Because he's an outsider to some degree within the Union so why would they give him something that important?
Do u remember when we first saw muzuka? He was unconsious. Probably since the time he fought rai, he was with the union. And later they got their hands on m-21 and did their experiment on him. They used muzakas heart at that experiment is what im saying. And they needed muzaka alive so they used m-21s heart to do that.

Ohhh sorry. Didnt read below the line. Thought it was about something else.
Its possible that he asked the union for a werewolf heart or maybe some other error that they made during the delivery of the heart.
