I hate to harp on this again but, you know, for a show that included surprisingly-intense scenes of alcoholism, wife beating anD child abuse, this show sure holds the fists back in these super fights. Kotetsu didn’t have to bash the Lady Killer’s nose or break his knee caps or anything, but the whole dance with the hostage could’ve been easily avoided if he just lead with a right cross.
Maybe the diminishment of his NEXT power is dulling his killer instinct, too?
Normally, I wouldn’t be rooting for Lunatic and his brand of justice, but the show presents these heroes as such wet noodles. Lunatic ends up being like Mustang was in FMA - - the only “good guy” who’s actually taking the bad guys seriously as a threat. And he does earn plenty of sympathy points here for how wronged he’s been by the “heroes” in his life.
I’ve found it amusing that Kotetsu’s looked up to Legend in the way that he has. It’s almost as if the kid in that “Mean Joe Green” Coke commercial grew up and became a pro-player just based on that one exchange with the towel. Actually, it would seriously make my day if the rest of the season arced out like a sports movie with Tiger regaining his powers through the tried and true means of a training montage. That would just put a button on all of this hardship and sorrow, wouldn’t it?
By the way, is anybody else seeing some serious typos in the subtitles? Word startrunning together justlike this.
