yeah there's really a story, and it's already being outlined now. Often such a things can take long. So there are four families that are all from one famous (damned forgot the term). One is introduced now, and he has a cool youma if you ask me


another good thing: the story evolves fast - we already saw a third family member at the end

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

well fire birds arent exactly a rare occurence, phoenix's anyway?
anyway a bit of a slip in speed this week, with the third being shown at leat 2 chapters too fast for me, but i guess a split into two scenarios could work for timelines sake

Who knows when HnC will end though?

If Blue Dragon is indeed ending, I think it'll be the first series at MH to have an RTS thread for every chapter.

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

Well was I happy to be able to read HnC in budapest in an internet cafe (damned qwertz - hungarian board - /me used too azerty). New main villains (sheadows mainly) introduced, more background about tokio his brother,... This manga has potential

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

I really think that we're gonna have a sotr of 'muhyo style' villain thing going on in the way of tokio's brother. presuming he reappears.

Well the new villain has strange eyes for sure. That old hag getting behind the back of our three members without them noticing it is an element that there will be stronger opponents and maybe faster than tokio but we'll see that

but tokio his borther is indeed an element for later on

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

I think it's safe to assume that we're approaching the main storyline now, with all the elements converging to form sides. and with one more person to be introduced later to the good guys, we have a lot to look forward to. although the latest chapter had a bum panel on one page (all heaeds looked weird. look for it :D)

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

I don't think that the 4th head will be an evil guy. He'll be a good guy, but I wouldn't be suprised if he's talentous or maybe an oldie (in contrast to our other three). What's possible is the fact that there will be family members having an allience with youma (eg tokio his brother)

BTW that evil guy has the same eyes (star) of tokio's brother, or is he the brother?

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

his face looks like tokio's, so its a safe assumption
different name denies that though

Re: Hitomi no Catoblepas (new WSJ series) - Discussion

I'd say it's pretty damn safe to say that Tenma Hajun and Tokihito are the same person. The eyes are the same, the face evokes Tokio's as well as what little we've seen of Tokihito via flashback, and the hype-text at the end of the chapter practically states it outright. "Tenma Hajun" is a demon from Buddhist mythology, so presumably Tokihito has just taken that name for some reason (he's pretentious? he's fulfilling a prophecy? he's possessed? etc.)
