and I'm still wondering why do I bother making this thread...
no real progress whatsoever,just more character to introduce.
yah, most of the fans of this series have been pretty disappointed with this "final" arc.
this chapter introduced a lot of "aces" that probably won't get any face time for the rest of the arc. kinda like when oujou showed all their defensive stars, who all suddenly disappeared.
Actually, I kind of liked this chapter. It was a bit worrying to think that the Teikoku Alexanders had only a few ace players, just like all the other teams, when supposedly they had poached from all over Kantou to get the best players. Here we finally see some of the other all-stars in the first-string. It would have been nice to have the finale be a showdown on a massive scale, though, with every player on the Devilbats having to face off against a great counterpart, instead of merely Sena, Monta and Hiruma against Yamato, Taka, and Karin. THAT would be a much better climax to the series than just the standard team-with-3-star-players we're getting at the moment. So far the best was Oujou, who managed to have 5 featured opponents - Takami, Sakuraba, Shin, Ikari and Ootawara. Even Shinryuuji only had 3 (and a half, if you count Yamabushi...). The rest were no better.
