We already knew about the previous slayer actually...
Wow this chapter was so amazing
I'm glad Baam has new teammates and i really like Wagnan . I knew he was a good guy and i like his character . It was a surprise though seeing that the general supervisor is working for FUG I'm really curious to see those slayers
And the ending was awesome . Here enters my fav character . I like Koon the best . I just hope he's not a bastard now . The way he's acting makes me think that since he thought Baam died he reverted back to his original self of not trusting anyone . I can't wait to see what are the old characters doing . Are they still trying to reach the top for Rachel's sake ?
I'm interested on Koon outfit. What's that Boy Scout uniform? He always looks cool, but still.
I liked this chapter mostly because of the appearance of Koon, even though he isn´t the one I wanted to see the most ( Androssi or Rak would be better for me and pleease no Rachel for some time)
He´s called A.A now, but I wonder why, he was always proud of his Koon title, maybe he wants to make a name for himself. And his arrogance is the same as always
I thought that this weeks chapter would clear a few things, but with the exception of the clearifying that Baam was "tricked", it didn´t explain anything, every week I feel trolled from SIU -.-
Next chapter will be in F25, so will we see F20 again? And I think what Love saw on his monitor will probably revealed in 15+ chapters or at the end of season 2, thats the thing I like about SIU, everything is planned and changes with some explanation. But damn everytime I feel like, so he was the bad guy [20 chapters later] so he actually was the good guy, but acted like he was bad [another 20 chapters later] so he was really the bad guy, but acted like he was the good guy after the acted like he was the bad guy... [another 10 chapters later] I see so Zahard is the bad one and everyone else is good... I see -.-'
But I guess we have to see him getting more character depth to finally sentence him

On another note, Augusgus said "the prince passed our test" and I´m saying it now, the prince is Violet
I think that would make sence, because who else would have been passing the test of FUG without knowing about it, so I think it really is baam... And also just how much further do this FUG guys plan, first Yu han Sung, now Gusgus, its like they know what exactly will happen, yes I know some people say that guide´s have the ability to see the future, but I think more of it like, they senec danger or "sometimes" they can predict what will happen, but to really see the future, i can´t imagine that, though Yu han Sung said "They are the ones blessed by the tower with ne knowlede of all the paths within, to assist in its navigation, an at times, are even able to foresee the future and change it". So I´m a little confused now

Hi there, this is my first Manhwa, and it's really great.
I picked it up because it was meationed sometimes in here. So thanks to Jammin and matzik1212 in particular for that.
I really like the style, one long page nonstop, also the art of Tower of God is quite good, the first chapters really left a good impression on me, so I ended up reading the whole thing in 2 days lol. And the plot is also good, there's 2 sides to it, in one hand the more "mature" side, the mysticism of the Tower, the realistic brutality of some tests, the struggles of power etc, on the other hand a more "shounen" side with the interactions between the Regulars on the Second Floor and now the new guys with wangnan at the centre. Personally I prefer the first one, but as long as a good balance between both is maintained it's cool. Until now SIU was able to do it imo.
Part 2 is interesting in the sense that SIU just kinda changed his main character, and he did say he will not have a fixed one, I find that nice.
And sorry for disagreeing with some of you guys about Baam, I like him better now, now he is a proper irregular. I mean he doesn't need to be "evil" and he actually isn't. He is just cold and a proper baddass fighting. That feats well the Tower of God (the mature side), a place where the 2nd test is basically to kill opponents left and right. The "good guy" kind of character can perfectly go for Wangnan, the guy that even tough has potential will always get beaten up before revealing his "true" strength etc, I'm actually a bit tired of that kinda of thing. Baam was a little like that, or better, if he kept like that he would develop into it. Viole(in contrast with Baam) on the other hand is more like Yuri and Koon, he can still be a good guy, but when fighting be ruthless and go straight to the point, he is a monster after all, so I like him that way.
About Viole opening up to others, well I agree that at core he is still Baam so he will not just "kill em all" and move forward alone, he definitely belongs to this new group, but something like what Rachel did is not overcome that easily, and I hope he keeps being a little distant until the day he meets Rachel again and finds her reasons for betraying him. (deep down inside I just hope he would kill her hehehe, don't like her xD). Also his reason to be there seems to assure that Wangnan moves forward, on orders of FUG. And even though Wangnan will have an increasing influence on Viole, I hope Viole keeps with his new self, stays in FUG, becomes a slayer etc.
I mean, I'm absolutely certain there are tons of people who love this new Baam/Violet; and for them everything about this is probably a dream come true.
For me though, and forgive the long analogy, it's like sitting down for movie marathon in a theater where the 1st movie is great and the 2nd movie is mediocre; but you have to sit through it to get to the 3rd movie which looks to be awesome. So here I am sitting in the second movie checking my watch and seeing that it's been like 2 hours and the second movie is barely half over and groaning in despair.
That's what this chapter makes me feel like.

In the chapter where you see Rachel coming in the tower, Headon says to Rachel that she's not the one that was chosen.
Doesn't that mean that Baam was the one that the tower actually chose?
Many pages (Wikipedia, etc) still mention Baam as an irregular...
Did I misunderstood something?
At least, that's how I interpreted that, but I could be wrong...
I guess, it's possible that they both open the door themselves somehow...
Still, that's pretty surprising, since Irregulars are supposed to be rare, and two of them getting inside the tower one right after the other...

This is my interpretation of Rachel's flashback and Irregulars in general. I don't think Irregulars are "not chosen", I think they are not chosen according to the laws of Zahard and the contracts he made with the Guardians, more specifically in this case with Headon, I think he made such contracts and outlawed Irregulars (like himself) because of the danger they pose to his rule. I think Irregulars are more like the "true" chosen of the Tower, the ones with capacity to open the Gate and to take tests directly from Guardians.
In Baam and Rachel's case, I think it was actually Baam who opened the Gate of the Tower and that Rachel "took a ride", thus explaining Headon's words. But Rachel did manage to enter the Tower even if in a "unfair" way, and after her pleading, Headon gave her a chance, which she miserably failed. Then Baam arrived, the Irregular ie imo the Chosen of the Tower itself, but "unchosen" according to Zahard's laws. He took the test and passed. Headon imo made that deal with Rachel, allowing her to procceed, and thus turning her into an Irregular as well, for her to work as another "test" for Baam, a "test" that the other Guardians seem to be aware of, because the last test of the 2nd Floor, in which Rachel's actions were planned, was the test given directly by the Guardian.

I don't know much about was SUI said apart from the series but in part 1 Baam met with that guardian of the floor or whatever it was in order to get assigned a test where he could pass with Rachel. If I remember correctly the condition for meeting that being was being an irregular. So, based on that, it's safe to assume Baam is definitely an irregular.
Well, there's not that much to say, so I'll just wait until next week when we see more.
The Company version is out:
Reading the Afterword, it's really interesting and promising to see that SIU looks at TOG not just an author but more of a reader
