ToG chapter 101 review
well this chapter was really interesting. I like the development so i decided to write a review.
oh well this chapter start with rapdevil getting raped by the devil
well more seriously he's getting one hell of a beating by Horyang. Unfortunately we do not see the scene but rapdevil is screaming like a little girl. After the beating we can see rapdevil covered on his own blood, begging Horyang to spare his life. Horyand turn back to normal and spare Rapdevil after giving him a warning. Prince who's usually in bragging non-stop mode is watching the scenery speechless. Horyang take the remote and plug his connector.
On the other side, Lurker's ally runaway leaving him behind with Wangnan and Viole in the room. Wangan start to beat the shit outta Lurker, saying he'll kill him to avenge Nia. Lurker tell him that he'll be just like him if he kill him. Lurker tell his story. He was like Wangnan and had one hell of a debt, he started to work for the president of the company cuz he couldn't pay his debt.The president used his money to make his son (Prince) climb the tower. Wangnan who was to the point to kill lurker decide to spare him so the guys who suffered because of Nia will forgive him. Wangan state he will change the tower and become the king. Viole who was watching the whole scenery didn't say a word. At the end he just insered his connector to the remote, choosing to make a team with Wangnan, Yeo Gosaeng, Yeo Misaeng, Kang Horyang, Hon Arkraptor, Prince and Yeon Yihwa
how's that? huh huh
Horyan's power: Well i guess that was the biggest surprise f the Chapter. From the begining of the arc, rapdevil is rumored as the "devil of the right hand who defeated Hatsu". But at the end he turned to be a disappoint, seems like he made up this rumor. Horyan told him: " Don't go around saying you've seen me ever again", what i can understand here is that Horyan is the rumored Hatsu. Now what i can't understand is why he didn't use his power earlier against Viole, perhaps he's just like Viole and is hidding his real identity while climbing the tower. He said earlier his goal was to find someone.
One more thing Horyan considered going against Viole to get his connector but he remembered the red thing that appeared and healed Viole's injuries during their fight. That thing seemed dangerous to him, i wonder what kind of power/creature Viole acquired.
Wangnan ambition: i gotta say at the beginning of the second part, i was disappointed by the new bunch.But now i'm kinda interested in Wangnan. seems like Nia betrayal and death was the trigger. He's aiming to become king and to change the tower. At the moment he's kinda a weakling but i can see him improving
a lot. One more thing that we all neglected is the fact that he managed to injure Viole during their first fight. We didn't have an explanation of why what he thought to be his weaklest poke-ball injured Viole. But i hope he have some kind of hidden ability he's not aware of, otherwise it'll be hard to him to become the king xD.
Viole descision: well Viole had the choice but he decided to choose a team. I guess Viole found interest in wangan. they have similar background, Viole was alone when lahel left, has been betrayed, now he wanna destroy the zahard family. Wangnan have been betrayed and now he want to become the king of the tower and change it. Also Baam is a kind boy and he did not change ( he didn't try to kill them). Viole wanted to fail them all for X reason. We don't know the reason yet but maybe it's as Love said: it's the test to be the FUG slayer. If that's the case then that mean Viole decided to give up on the FUG, if not then i hope we will know the reason later.
Prince: Prince expression when lurker was telling his story, reveal that he didn't know the fact that his father was destroying other's people dream to make him climb the power. Now it's interesting to see how Prince will behave. will his stop hiring bodyguard and borrowing other people's power or will he continue the spoiled brat act. I guess he will change. Also the respect he had for Horyan this chapter, he didn't even protest when Horyan called him kid (that was another story when they first met). maybe he'll try to become like him.
The new team: well at first i thought those guys were a bunch of weakling. but if we do a power ranking, Viole and Horyan stand out. Yeon, Akraptor and prince are your average strong regular. Wangnan come next but there is more to him, he have the ambition. The 2 girls are total weakling xD
Now the question is if that new team is better than the old team or not. I think it's hard to compare in term of power because we don't know how much the old bunch grew during the 5 years. but when it come to working together, i think that team will do better. The old team was all about treason, jealousy. And The 2 princess hated each other.
How far those 2 will go together? a team that will shake the tower?

Wagnan's cheap bombs injured Baam whilst the shinsoo bombs didn't was probably because Baam's resistance to shinsoo is very high, so he can take shinsoo-based attacks but not the cheap bombs which probably cause damage by another method
Thanks for the review! Just a few comments fro me...
Love: I learned something interesting about the latest Slayer. It seems that Karaka received a special assignment from FUG for the test:
Love: 1. Assassinate a specific regular during the test
Love: 2. Help a specific regular pass the test
Love: 3. Or fail all the other regulars and pass the test alone.
Now, my thought is, what if Baam received the exactly same list? Thus he might simply have decided to change the mission objective here - Wangnan might be the one he has to help passing in that case.
Though I do indeed find the Wangnan and Baam/Voile teamup the most interesting thing here for sure and like you wonder what'll come of this team-up
Finally someones doing a review, I hope you keep it weekly
Just some thoughts of mine
I also can´t imagine the season2 team to be stronger than season1, even after 5 years I think the powerbalance might be the same, they got very talanted ones, Laure, Hatsu, Anak, Androssi, Rak and the biggest schemer Koon. I don´t want to downplay the new guys, Yeon might be on Androssi´s level and Arkrapter and Teddy are also pretty strong, but I just can´t see the old gang losing to the new. How strong the 2 girls and prince are, is a wildcare till now. Have to see more of them.
And thanks again for the review, keep it coming
