As is with code, when you know the issue you are dealing with, one can construct within the functionality of its operations, an encapsulating narrative to account for those variables otherwise confusion and the timely task of debugging become the process overwhelming the task. Expanding that logic into the context of Hermit battling Killer, the ambiguity represented in Killer’s programing came to embody a value outside the scope of the Edens Zero’s usual processing. If not for the data derived from Weisz’s efforts, the modus operandi Killer pursued would not have been identified by Hermit to factor into the functionality of her counterattack.Continue reading
Hermit’s measured reaction to Killer’s unhinged madness was intensely phenomenal. While Killer manically boast over accessing Overdrive, Hermit is just there observing his ignorance before unleashing her own ascension into Overdrive. The climatic reveal with Hermit looking down on Killer in her empowered form before responding to Killer’s silenced state with “so was I” was exceptionally glorious. I love it. What a badass, Hermit. Her Overdrive form looks incredible. That almost smug expression (in the best kind of ways) on Hermit’s face while awakening her Overdrive and staring at Killer told everyone enough to know how she triumphed over Killer in that pre-psychological battle taking place. Killer getting a taste of his own taunts was surprisingly satisfying.Continue reading
The manner in how Killer entrapped Weisz mentally, emotionally and physically deserves acknowledgement. He understood Weisz intimately and exploited that knowledge expertly to carve out a moment of doubt which in turn opened Weisz up to the defeat he ultimately suffered. Battles aren’t just reduced to a derivation of numbers. It often embodies a subtle process of understanding your opponent and employing more than the weight of your fist. Killer in this situation, emotionally staggered Weisz and took advantage of his vulnerable mind to corner Weisz into his trap. The love Weisz felt toward his mother became the choice that led to his defeat in this situation.Continue reading
The pain of losing a loved one is an incomparable experience forever etched in the minds and hearts of those left in the wake of the tragedy. For those that remain, the life characterised by the people lost suddenly exist as an unfamiliar frame within which echoes of grief reside. Grief in the form of numbness that embodies the void left when those cherished within your life are gone. With time, the setting of your heart readjusts as you come to accept the pain and embrace the desire to move forward into a world where your loved one whom has passed no more exist.
Such is the case with Weisz, who had his mother stolen from him by the inhuman schemes of Drakken. He accepted the death of his mother and came to acknowledge the grief overwhelming his heart when faced with the man who killed her. But now, within the Subdimension Program Killer has entrapped him within, he finds out that his mother may not have died. The world within his heart that had readjusted to move forward within a reality that didn’t have his mother now tears itself open to reveal the scenery that existed when his mother was a part of his world. Love and the trauma associated with it resurface instantaneously.Continue reading
It is incredibly curious how the main aspects driving the current story forward are the events which have transpired in the past for the characters. Equally as relevant as the happenings taking place in the present are the occurrences from the past the characters were involved in. Case in point, Ziggy, the actions he took in the past has set the foundation for this entire conflict. Before Dark Ziggy’s arrival, base Ziggy had put a plan in motion. The complete specifics are unknown but as Shiki is beginning to suspect, base Ziggy foresaw the arrival of Dark Ziggy and established countermeasures, one of which being Shiki himself. The past and memories concealed within the shadows of the mind apply to every other character as well. It goes beyond just motivations and into the realm of existence. How does ones past influence their present and in the case of memories being omitted, can it change a character completely?Continue reading
What seemingly appeared a hopeless situation with Killer backed into a corner turned into a moment of inspiration where Killer discovered an unforeseen weakness in Hawkin’s Straw Man ability. If nothing exist on the Straw Man target in the place the damage accorded, the injury suffered by Hawkins will not transfer over, rather it will be sustained by Hawkins himself. Using such a supposition, Killer created the path on which Hawkin’s defeat resided. Killer spun the wheel of fortune with his actions and achieved a turning point. Kid is now free from Hawkins’s ability and the pain that was consuming him. The collapse of the Yonko are now on the cards and a new way forward is a destiny awaiting all.Continue reading
To think that Kamazou was Killer. I did not consider that in the slightest but given Kamazou’s bandaged body and face, it makes sense that it was a character already introduced but to think that the logical, cool-headed Killer was broken down into a crazed headhunter who has no issue with chasing down a defenseless girl and woman and cutting them down. The psychological damage done to Killer must have been seriously deep for him to reach a point where he agreed to commit such acts. Was Killer blackmailed into such a state with the false promise of returning his emotions back him or with the safety of the other Kid pirates? Whatever has happened, Killer has been cursed with the side effects of the SMILE Devil Fruit and his tears at the end of the chapter convey exactly how destroyed he is at what has been done to him.
Great chapters, especially chapter 544 – Naruto reveals the weight behind his resolve and determination and expresses just how much belief he has in himself thanks to his father and mother. You can tell Naruto has attained a harmonious balance in himself since meeting his father and mother (for the first time). Now that he understands how much love was surrounding him and how much faith they have put in him, he has begun to see and accept the role he must play. The role of savior, the role handed to him by the previous savior who left everything to Naruto. It’s heartwarming to see the overwhelming and overflowing love present between Naruto and his parents. They left him on a path filled with pain and suffering, but Naruto doesn’t blame them and isn’t angry at them, instead he understands their decision and realises the sacrifice they made for him. The love they have for him and the faith they put in him, that is all Naruto can see. Two Suns, Suns that shine on him and power him to go to any length to protect the things precious to him. A relationship so radiant, it’s moving…
Glad I decided to wait last week and read both of these chapters together this week, because they were both really good, especially when read together. The story of A and B was pretty awesome, interesting to see how different A was before he became Raikage. A took to heart the words Killer B’s cousin told him and gave B that “something” to fill the hole in his heart which the 8-Tails would have exploited. A back than really did act like a big brother to Killer B and gave B that support which Jinchuuriki desperately need to keep on living as themselves.
