I just read the chapter, seconds ago. What the hell is with chapter. The pace was to fast, even for me. This fight was rushed, it seems like the author intents to end this arc very soon. I don't get it, why the rush? And thats the only thought I have right now...
The fight was kinda glossed over.... but i'm giving it a pass because Hilda, Oga, and Beel had such an fantastic "family moment".
Besides we all knew what was going to happen there. Oga and Tojou fight and look impressive then bad guy goes "Haha, behold my true strength!" Nothing new or interesting there so I can understand the author just glossing over that so he can concentrate on the fun parts.
The chapter was quite good.
Actually Tojou did way better I thought he would have done. For me it's rather obvious that Oga and Tojou didn't take Jabberwock down, because Oga used up quite a big ammount of his strength during his other fights. Maybe if he and Tojou hadn't fight other demons in the school, they would have gotten a better chance. Actually I would say they might have won (if they were at their 100%) with the help of those demon guy from those six knights.
I guess everyone has his own preferences. I like reading a manga for the art and plot. That also includes double pages of fighting scenes. For example: Oga using 260 CC or he overstepping the CC limit needs imo more emphasizing like a double page. Jaberwock withstanding hits from Toujo and Oga and him counter attacking could have a bit dragged out too. I believe this chapter could have dragged to one 1/2 if not to two whole chapters.
I feel this chapter was rushed infact the whole arc right now seems rushed. I also read somewhere that this series might be in danger of cancellation, so I was thinking of that.
Anyway, it was a great chapter. Just as I predicted it. I believe Zen will appear very soon, to finish some open things. I would NOT like it if Oga pulls a Natsu on Jaberwock.
Possible I´m the only one who make this interpretation but at the last Page when Oga stands up again. It looks to me like he get the controll over this amazing power that Baby Beel got. I only interpretat it from the different eyes. But that is only a normal predict, whats normally totally wrong on Beelzebub. XD The second thing is the Royal tattoo is complett away. After my second read i finally hope when this arc ends with the Year, we see this DoA Attack. Like Ikaruga u can do this attack but when u miss it u will Die. I will laugh when Oga miss the attack Die and Beels Father send him right back. XD That will be amazing comedy and the scene of the Year.
Demon Oga FTW. I hope Oga manages to beat Jabberwock with some crazy demonic tech. Can't wait for the next chapter.
If oga pulls a natsu, that will be really terrible..but I think it'll be worse if he does an ichigo.
Anyway, I hope he really does have something left in all that training.
I do admit that it's a little too fast.
Well, he should still have 140 cc of supermilk left, shouldn't he? Not that I think it will be enough, but whatever!
I'm confused as to what an "Ichigo" or a "Natsu" would be, but I think its a bit OOC of Oga to do anything other than beat the shit out of him.
This chapter was awesome. I was a bit skeptical at how the reunion would work, considering Hilda was on the verge of passing out...but it was emotional without being sappy.
Jabberwock just kept trolling him, and it was actually really awesome to watch (despite how sad I got at Hilda's memory loss.) I really love his villain antics. I don't know what Oga is going to do to defeat him, but whatever it is, I'll be satisfied knowing Jabberwock was a seriously frightening enemy.
I think Toujou is out for the count. That was a pretty hard hit he took. =/ And yeah, I think Oga is going to be the one to defeat him. It would be a major turn-off for me if someone else took over the fight. The only exception would be if something really weird intervened (like En, Behemoth, etc)...and even then, it would mean the fight had been postponed, not completely disregarded.
I think its very telling knowing the next chapter is going to have 30 pages --Tamura-sensei probably has had a hard time fitting everything he wants into just 19 pages. So hopefully, next chapter will strike a good balance between action and plot.
I kind of want to see Furuichi doing something as well, though he has always been the commentator for Oga's fights.
a great chapter but left me wanting more =/ I'm guessing jabberwock if defeated will set the stage for someone else and since the other pillar heads like laymia are still in the game i bet there's gonna be someone else takig his place. maybe behemoth whose got experience
So Oga getting his butt beat reversed the mind-trade between him and Beel? That doesn't sound right. I feel like "losing this amount of power and I regain my consciousness" is a prerequisite for one of his black techs, which as of yet I have found extremely disappointing. Training arcs are always my favorites, even more than the battles, and so I'd like to see those 3-5 chapters not go to waste on him mastering the zebul emblem or what have you.
