What the hell just happened?
Everyone who’s ever followed my posts know that it takes a lot to get me pissed or thinking something was flat out terrible, but this week’s chapter was just flat out bad. I’m a bit glad that this does end the arc of perhaps the worst villain to date, but that doesn’t change the fact that what we got this week was equivalent to a manga that just got cancelled and needed to finish things within the next month or something. I mean, really? After all that hype and mother of all chakra stuff, it ends abruptly like this? That’s just…
Honestly, I don’t have the words to describe my feelings at seeing the line—
“Congrats on saving the world.”
—suddenly glaring at me from my screen, and it’s as if the life has been sucked out of me after reading the events of this chapter. I mean we saw the fight was approaching an end, but this was not the kind of end I wanted or expected, and at this point there’s only a few ways this can end. The problem is, following the events of this chapter, none of them look particularly good.
Suffice to say, I can’t say I like any of those potential paths. The first one’ll just drag out a fight against a terribly developed villain, the second feels exceptionally nonsensical as a possibility despite the shady face he had at the end of this chapter, the third option’ll feel like a cheap ploy to bring him back, and the fourth… well. It’s probably actually the best of the four listed above, but I don’t know if I can stomach it if the series does actually end with this kind of transition.
Needless to say, it’s just discontent all around this week, and that’s all I’m really going to say here. Excuse me while I throw my chair out the window in rage.
