I feel like people aren't factoring in the context of the fights when discussing the strength of the various characters - There's a difference between Zenon who as far as we saw dealt with threats without playing around, verses Dante and Vanica who were shown purposely toying around with their opponents just for kicks. We were shown that had Vanica wanted to imminently take Lolopechka out, she could have easily done so in an instant. And while William was taken out offscreen, we don't know how, and given the tricks the others have displayed, it would be strange to assume this one was a straight-forward fight. As for Yuno verses Noelle, I don't think we've seen anything from Noelle that would allow her to touch Yuno. They more or less have the same record of feats at this point, though Yuno has actually help take a devil down.

As for the chapter, Dante's comment about the devil's power makes it seem like the devils are still on the other side, or at least their powers. That is clearly wrong, based on what we know with Megicula, but it would make sense given what we saw with Zagred and all his work to open a path to the underworld. Perhaps only a portion of the devil's power can cross over, and while they can draw upon more, it can't be maintained without an open pathway.

In fact, they will not be the villains, but their demons once they are able to possess their true body like Zagred.
How can that work, when we're shown Dante and Vanica being far crazier then their devils, but we had Dante's flashback showing he was already a sociopath. You can't even say that the Triad is being trick, because they're fully in on the plan as we know it.

Honestly, to me William isn't an impressive fighter. He's got support magic which takes time to set up for a fight, so it makes sense to me that he would get beaten pretty easily, and I doubt he could put up too much resistance against a dark triad member. For Noelle vs Yuno, to me it just seems like she has better feats against a top tier opponent then Yuno, so for that alone I'd put her above Yuno for now, though I'm not expecting that to last very long.

This bit does seem weird to me, and it does seem like a bit of a contradiction, but I think it's best to wait for official translations before making any judgement on what was actually said.

What in a 3v1? That seems pretty unlikely to me, I think they will all get a rematch eventually, but probably will be 1v1,or with other characters helping out, like for Noelle, Nozel would be a pretty obvious choice for help.

he actually gave me a good reasons like there will be no other time skip in order to gain stronger spells asta cant control his demon and if DK got manipulated by their demons there will be no chance for them without training so what y say bout dat

I dunno, just seems more likely for other characters to back them up rather than just have all 3 of them fight against opponents they have no connection to.

Reading the full chapter, I enjoyed it. I think Tabata did a good job showing how destructive 80% is. That one panel of him floating, while everything is getting destroyed, was well done. I don’t know what’s more impressive, Dante easily flinging Yami around or Yami surviving that spell. And of course another signature surpassing his limits moment and that last line in the end :hip. While everyone got a shiny new instructor over the timeskip, my guy went old school. Waking up early every morning, and taking a dump surpassing the last. Most effective formula in the game.

For Dante, I'll admit upon seeing the initial scans, my Dante boner reached a state of crisis. Didn't think flesh magic or whatever it is could replace a torso XD. Also, we know the effect Yami's Dark magic has against devils, ie Zagred getting fucked, so thought it may be something that can't be healed. But, after reading, I think my guy will be just fine, lol. The reveal about 100% and Dante not even moving this chapter, hints he has more to show. Guessing we'll see Lucifero show why he's the highest-ranking devil and Yami putting up a last stand to ensure Finral can teleport the rest.

The Asta thing is intriguing. Considering the outburst his devil had after losing, perhaps he will have a summit with his devil soon. Maybe learning about the devil's world and the state of affairs there. If nothing else, a pact before going to Spade.

Guessing we'll see Dante flesh magic come into play next week and he'll defeat Yami. Nice to know the DT can't use 100% until they succeed in their plan. Hoping we have a long break from fights after this one.

Honestly I doubt that the high-ranking demons are reduced to being the servants of the Triad, clearly if they help them it is because they want to have advantages too, even considering that probably in the demonic world there can be some more powerful than just waiting to to intervene.

Then, once the demons have had their true bodies and their true strength, they can also do without humans.

That the Triad is psychopathic, I don't see what it has to do honestly ..

If the demon intervenes I don't see what Dante's magic could do .....

C'mon guys, clearly this is leading up to Yami's defeat.

It sucks, but it's a shonen manga. This is literally what happens. lol

But if Dante actually died it would be a nice twist. So in the end what matters is Lucifer, isn't it?
