right from the bat we see this impressive scan where heracles and the blue oni clash against each other, we previously saw a herac kick from elg but this is on a whole new level. the two attacks coliding shook the entire area 8 and the blast can be seen from space. pretty epic!
and then it finally appears,an EMPEROR RING, and a big one for that matter, covering the horse king hills
the blue oni notices that heracles kick could have sent him to SPACE.
then i quote from the blue oni:
"the red oni and me eat different things"
what could he possibly mean? it seems the blue oni doesnt feed on normal food like the red one.
then we see toriko fully recovered BUT with a new scar. whether this will be permanent we dont know yet but i hope it is.
careru finally got to the slow rain hills and i find his speed was just out of this world, the fight with toriko barely lasted over 20 seconds.
then we got zebura implying he flies at the speed of sound (?) though he crossed a country of distance as fast as buranchi and so did careru.,
bad writing shimabukuro, sorry.
we finally getr to see Melk's sword and buranchi notices how the friggin sword has the power to SLICE the continent.
how komatsu is gonna use it is still uknown. komatsu did pull a superhuman feat back at the horse kings hills so maybe we will get to see finally a powerful komatsu. who knows?the chapter ends strong when komatsu and company arrive at giant air tree.
FINAL VERDICT: 8/10
this chapter was pretty awesome, but the sudden introduction of the blue oni against a long time hyped character like one of the 8 kings is a little of a turndown for me. i expected more fighting,the first page was the most impressive and even though there is no wasted page on this chapter i would have like it to be a couple of pages longer.
shimabukuro MAKE IT RIGHT,i trust you.
