[might contain spoilers] A little confused about the storyline..
I've been reading Air Gear for awhile now, and I seem to be a little bit confused about the storyline and how things work.. (blame it on the manga's extensive use of metaphors :mad:)
So, got a few questions here (actually I've got a lot, but i'll just ask the things I can remember now lol):
btw, I've read up to chapter 257, so feel free to tell me whatever have happened up to that chapter (kogarasumaru vs sleipnir battle).
1. So basically we have two opposing teams now, Genesis and Sleeping Forest (SF). Genesis' aim is to make use of the sky regalia (for what?), while SF's aim is to prevent them from obtaining the sky regalia.. because they think AT's are just a tool to help people gain freedom, and people can actually 'gain freedom' without ATs. In SF's point of view, the regalia just sparks battles (which stain the sky) because people want the regalias out of greed.
Am I right up to this point (someone tell me whats the purpose of Genesis please?)? If someone could provide me with a general overview why these teams are battling it'd be greatly appreciated lol. I'm sooo lost.
2. So between these two teams, where is Kogarasumaru being positioned? Obviously Ikki is the storm king and he wanted to obtain the sky regalia, but how come he ended up on the same side as Ringo (you know, when Rika was kidnapped by Sora and Ikki decided to help)?
3. what's the purpose of the gram scale tournament?
Sorry for the really long questions, but I hope u guys can help me. I like this manga and not knowing what is actually happening can get really annoying -___-
PS. I might add more questions later if I remember... I had loads of questions but I couldn't seem to remember all of em hahaha
