    The recent Kimetsu chapter was really funny, loved the cute facial expressions. Hype for the new arc, they seem to only improve each time.

    Asta was conscious while using that power, that's already 100 times more control than Naruto or Ichigo had when they used their Kyubi/Hollow powers for the first time. Asta didn't try to kill everyone while using that power and even spared Ladros, another 100 times more control than these two.

    You're expecting way too much from this demon thing. It's not some god of destruction, at least on the power scale of this series. The boy gets swatted down like a gnat.

    The demon was about to wipe out all of humanity, that's what it literally says one the first page of the first chapter of the manga.

    Ah. I never assumed that the demons would be the same thing but I guess that's the main trope that comes to mind.
    [​IMG]
    Still don't quite see the resemblance either; it missing a bunch of appendages and there's a physical corpse thing. With the villains shtick being the three eyes I assumed there was a whole race of these things.

    I'm translating the Shimabu-Oda one-shot. Should get done pretty soon. I definitely recommend it becuase it's sort of a chronology of both Oda and Shimabukuro's history with Jump as told by Shimabuu.

    That's wrong man hahaha. At least to me, "controlling the power" means you can fight the way you want, be free to activate it anytime and use the power freely, managing it. You're completely right when you say that Asta don't lost the conscience and that's more than Naruto in his first contacts with Kyuubi, but if Asta can't fight using this power freely, I wouldn't call it "controlling".

    And the demon that almost destroyed the humanity in 1st chapter isn't the same of Asta's grimoire dude haahaha.

    You got any proof for that? Both of them are called a demon in the 1st chapter.

    We complain that Black Clover is generic and then get mad because it does things different that other series.

    ???

    If you just continue reading that same chapter that you used to give me the example, you would understand exactly my point:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I'll use just Asta's words:

    "Whoa! Whoa! I can't stop!!"
    "At least I'm heading to the peak, but what is it aiming at...?"
    "Bwaaaahhh!! I'm going straight into the lava!!"
    "I couldn't control it, but I can use that power...!!" - Asta himself said that, what more do we want?

    That's my point, man. I agree with you that he can activate the power with no injuries or something like that, but he can't fight the way he want to. Against Ladros, he was being controlled by the Queen of Witches and almost killed all his friends, remember? He can active the power, but can't use it appropriately, this is my point of view.

    About the Demon, they're just completely different (even in visual). The 1st chapter's one is the goal of Byakuya no Magan, they're trying to ressurrect it.

    I'm hyped too but I don't want this to be a trend.

    Face an incredible powerful foe > Loses/Realize the power gap > Train > Start New Arc

    People arguing on BC, I'm just over here ecstatic that the teacher in WNL isn't going to be a gorilla. Suddenly best girl after the recent issue but I doubt Jump will let this go the KissxSis route.

    SO viz did that Shimabu One Shot and it was incredible. Had a smile on my face the entire time. It's awesome he did something like that for Oda and that theyre still so close.

    Everybody discussing Black Clover and Asta demon all that, but nobody answered the fundamental question: Asta demon has tails? :3c
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 17, 2017, Original Post Date: Jul 17, 2017 ---
    Why would she be? There wasn't any clue that she would be. Not all tsundere (she is tsundere?) are like Chitoge, but all of them have a tongue like spikes, there are other ways to be tsundere. But she is not tsundere, not at all.

    I fell for this trap before so I just had to be cautious bro. I like this older woman vibe with her, she won't win but it's starting to become Takemoto and her for me.

    You fell into this trap before? With Chitoge or someone else? Because Chitoge was always like that since day one. XD
    But you know, this thing that Chitoge is a gorilla and all that became an internal joke and even an affectionate way to call Chitoge. She laugh when Raku gave her the gorilla plush, so it doesn't bother Chitoge fans at all. XD

    Sorry Posuka Demizu, but Shimabukuro wins as the best tribute. The oneshot was great, showed a human side of Oda that people forget that exists because he is just the greatest of all time. Even though he is in such a high level, he never ceased to be a nice guy like when he drew to Shimabukuro sister. He keeps true to himself. He is not only a great mangaka, but also a great man. I really would like to have the privilege to meet him.
