I was thinking that perhaps kenichi is finally starting to really enjoy martial arts hence his recent change in attitude and apparent increased improvement. Before he did not do martial arts because he enjoyed it but rather because he wanted to be able to defend himself from bullies. Later on he decided he wanted to continue fighting to be able to protect miu. Later on he declared he wanted to fight because he wanted to be capable of fighting for his beliefs. The only thing he actually ever seemed to lack was doing martial arts because he enjoyed it. Even akisame mentioned at some point that mastering something he does not want to do is impossible and will only yield negative results. Now, I am not saying kenichi in the past did not enjoy martial arts but his main motivation was generally an external factor and wanting to confront that factor rather than doing it because he thoroughly enjoys it. If this is the case then perhaps the psychological barriers which stop kenichi from going all out or fighting like he did against kano when he was unconscious will perhaps eventually weaken. Heck, kenichi is likely to start becoming a little crasier every day and have a mentality along the lines of the masters or miu due to the apparent changes he has had recently. It'd be fun to see the petty normal people around kenichi wonder WTH is wrong with kenichi's common sense lol.
Of course, scaring the shit out of him probably works too. I almost laughed out loud when I saw Elder charge into the yard.
I did laugh out loud looking @ the way the others were trying to hold him back.
So, can we expect to Hermit resurface as a Yomi?

You have to use spoiler tags in the spoiler thread? Well anyway, judging by the pictures, there was a development possibly on the emotional level rather than the main Yami storyline. Unless you can translate, then it's too soon to judge lol.
Probably not, I went on a picture hosting spree and posted in many threads so I just didn't keep up on which one I was in.
Chapter 425 is finally here:
Just saw the spoiler pictures for chapter 426 and let me just tell you this, I am happy and no longer disappointed in all those filler type transitional chapters we just had where nothing happened, because the final page of this chapter is freaking epic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and as usual, big credits to the people over at mangahideout for the images
Erm I thought Sho died? He is alive? So the next master will be Hongo?
Wow, sho was alive... I guess it makes sense someone like him would not die from mere gun shots though. Sakaki vs akira hongo anyone?
Hold on a second...are we sure Sho is alive? It looks like another few cameo appearances to me, like they're talking about him or something since there's no actual text pointing to his mouth.
I would like Sho to be alive too, but he's probably dead. His name probably came up when they were investigating the Kuresmago.
^agreed. anyone care to do a quick trans? see what they're saying. i dont think hes alive tbh. if kensai (who loves defying death) said he cant do nething..and considering the extensive damage we saw him take. its not likely unless yami has a revive the dead tech. of their own
