And there it is: the harmonious sky that connects everything together. The action is at a lull, but KHR! continues to hit some high notes after that fantastic “passing of the torch” from last week. It was certainly something to see pretty much all of KHR!‘s cast congregating in one place, and it was definitely a sight to behold; each person is a colorful addition and maybe it was just me, but I couldn’t help a sense of nostalgia at seeing all the characters that have graced the series over the past 300+ chapters. They’ve all changed and grown in so many ways, getting closer and closer to the future selves that we were clued into during the Future Arc. Even more impressive of course, is the person at the center of it all: Sawada Tsunayoshi.
He has all the bearings of a proper leader – not just as the head of a mafia, but as someone people can follow and dedicate their loyalty to. There’s something about Tsuna that gravitates people towards him, and it’s evident in the way he treats them that he deeply appreciates their friendship and would go to the ends of the Earth for them. There’s nothing else more reassuring than that in a leader, and it’s good to see Tsuna stepping up to the position that he’s been carving out throughout the series. Whether or not his endeavors of fighting alongside everyone will actually be helpful in defeating Bermuda and the Vindice is still up in the air, but I have a feeling (and not because it’s dictated by Shounen Rule #1) that Tsuna will be successful in saving the Arcobaleno; it’s now just a matter of how to get there, and I have no doubt the journey is going to be full of the dying will that makes KHR!… KHR!
P.S.: Oh Dino… Why am I not surprised you brought your entire famiglia over? At least you have some new clothes now!
