Tsuna seems to have finally realized that Reborn and Reborn’s “old friend” are one and the same – about time, too! It was somewhat unbelievable he wasn’t able to figure it out the first time, what with his “Hyper Intuition”.
Putting that aside, seeing the best hitman in action was pretty great, even though it doesn’t look like it’ll be a long-lasting thing. It seems almost silly to undo the curse just to shoot a single bullet, but I suppose that’s the restrictions set by the rules. Tsuna hasn’t had to get shot by the Dying Will Bullet for a long time though, and seeing that he’s already in Dying Will mode, I’m wondering what that shot is going to do. Obviously it’s going to be a power-up as dictated by the ye olde shounen gods, but how it’ll help Tsuna become stronger than Bermuda is still up in the air.
More than the fight though, I’m itching to see some explanations on the Arcobaleno phenomenon that have yet gone unexplored – there’s still a lot of material to burn through on that front and I wish there was less focus on the fights since they all end quite predictably. Hopefully the battle will end quickly with Tsuna’s shiny new powers and KHR! can finally delve into some of the plot points it’s left untouched for a while.
