    Yeah. He was doing so good, too. An injury like that will never heal right.

    Of course, this being Tenjou Tenge, all will be good as new in about, oh, a week...

    I'm sure we'll find out. Poor girl; I hope she comes out OK somehow, although TT's track record on that is not good. That's one thing that bugs me about TT -- it's repeated portrayal of cold-blooded cruelty against women. Sometimes I think the story could accomplish less with more. Of course, the guys sometimes get it, too (like what just happened to Asshat), but this sort of sick, manipulative abuse of innocents (well, even the not so innocent) generally makes me want to strangle something.

    Of course, that's just proof of effective storytelling, ultimately, because it grabs you and won't let go. Which is why TT continues to be such a favorite for so many. The awesome artwork, unpredictable (and incredibly complicated) plot and the way it's told keep it interesting.

    On that subject, I'm scratching my head thinking "What the hell??" about that sick murdering psycho Mataza still breathing air. After the way he sadistically slaughtered those women attempting to guard the Enmi's temple, I'd like to see him dead, dead, dead. But no, he's in recovery, cruising around with Makiko, chatting it up. I must say I don't understand many of the relationships in TT -- why would Souichirou's mom be hanging with a twisted freak like that I just don't get. She's good friends with Mataza's dad, Yorihira, but still, she has to know what Mataza has done. And I'm still scratching my head why the Takayanagi clan attacked the Enmi household in the first place. I guess Masataka doesn't know what his family is up to, because good guy that he is, I don't think he'd approve for a second.

    For that matter, I can't comprehend why Makiko would have let her husband, Souhaku, casually lop her arm off after her eye had already been snatched out. She just takes the abuse like it's her duty? Again, she's completely aware of the atrocities Souhaku has committed, but she plays along like she's part of the plan, indicating to me that neither of them are good people. I'm waiting for an eventual showdown between Souichiro and Souhaku, and I'm hoping he puts his dad six feet under, every last piece.

    Although the way TT goes, what will eventually happen is anyone's guess! It's a good bet that a lot of bad people are going to get away with a lot of bad things.

    Wow, that would be great, and I appreciate it. It's good to know that _someone_ knows what's going on!

    Souhaku has the ability to manipulate people such as the girl that it took Bob, Izumi, and Takanagi together to take her down. Also the chick with the dragon tongue that made Souichiro do her/souhaku's bidding. So it might not have been her will that she cooperated with souhaku letter him take her body one piece at a time. And I agree that shit goes down and doesnt get back up. Bad deeds are done and are forgiven, end justifies the means. Leaves a bad taste but I cant give up on the series due to the awsomeness of it. I read Haji Me No Ippo and I love boxing. Seeing Asshat wipe the floor with the other people and seeing him work so hard is really cool but when the blond chick just obliterates him Im just mortified I had to reread it twice to be sure I didnt miss anything. But I have a theory maybe just wondering if i can get a happy ending off of this but maybe Asshat can fight well without his "you know what" (dont wanna reveal too much for those who havent read it yet). I mean he did use a unorthodox move on the first match so maybe he can finish the fight in his current condition, maybe bite her neck open (too grusome but maybe) or even grapple her down and keep her down. Im being an optimist but I hope he can find a way out of it.

    you basically answered your own question when you said this.

    plus if you have read a little bit about Oh! Great, he used to draw H mangas that involved a lot of violence in those explicit mangas, and the article that i read about him said that a lot of mangakas start off that way. A lot of them start off as H manga artists because it is one of the easiest ways to get known and they tend to include a lot of sexual scenes even after they stop drawing H manga and just do their own thing, and as you can see from TT and Air Gear(though its a lot less sexually explicit) still shows that side of Oh! Great when he used to draw that stuff.

    well its obvious, you again answered your question, but only half i guess. at the end of that fight between Souchirou and Mataza, Mataza said he changed his ways and his dad accepted him, though it was a crappy way to end it thats basically it. He basically said "okay i dont want to be a bad guy anymore, let me be your son again daddy." which was lame but watever.

    -Souichirou's mom has no other choice, everyone who actually wants to help her is either dead, injured too, or too busy trying to save the school oldly...so who else has time to help her get around? plus Mataza has those robotic which is helping her cope with having no arms or legs.
    -err i dont remember the attack on the Enmi household, please elaborate on what happened then ill say something, its been a while since i read this.

    well Souichirou's mom believed at least at the time when she lost her eye, that it was to change the world and because she loved her husband. dur.
    she didnt let her Souhaku chop off her arm, he just did it cause he was an asshole and didnt want her to follow him. shes not aware of what is happening until after he chopped off her arm and left. then she started hating him but still loved him for some odd reasons which has yet to be even explained. shes a good person, she was just ignorant at the time and didnt know what was happening.
    I was under the impression that Souhaku was inside the eye which is currently the eye that Souichiro is using, plus he keeps comming back to life so its sort of hard to put a guy in the ground when he keeps coming back to life. =/

    this series started off great, then it has had its bumps in the road but i think its starting to pick up again since the start of the tournament, i just hope that the story develops better. =\

    vphamv,

    Wow, thanks for the writeup. Some of this I sort of knew, some I have picked up off the grapevine, and some I didn't know at all. Methinks I need to go back and re-read from around chapter 50... I can't even recall when Souichiro got his dad's eyeball as you claim. That's what happens when you try to absorb 101 chapters in two days' time.

    Another of the things I missed entirely was what you said about Mataza playing kiss-and-makeup with his dad, and that made everything OK. "Lame" for sure. And Souichirou's mom hanging around with the creep still strikes me wrong. You asked about the attack on the Enmi household: that happened at the beginning of chapter 57. Mataza sadistically impaled the two sisters at the gate (Enshi and Enki) and then proceeded to kill everyone else there except for the boy, Mouki, and Enma, whom he sexually tortured with one of his lances. Whether or not Makiko knows about that, I'm unsure now, but she knew enough to be there when Souichiro and Mataza fought, which ended up crippling both her and Mataza by the time it was over.

    And this attack was by the Takayanagi clan. As I said earlier, if Masataka knows everything his family is up to. If he did, I doubt he'd approve. And from their chat in the car in 103, Mataza and Makiko know what Mayatsubo (the Mp3-girl who's putting those berzerk worms in people) is up to (which obviously is no good), and they don't seem to care. And the abuse she's taken from her (ex?) husband Souhaku is nuts, love/hate relationship or not. A bit of well-implemented revenge is in order there, and "immortal" or not, I'd wager that if you reduce his entire body to a small pile of carbon (including the magic eyeball), he won't be coming back to bother anyone. She'd be doing everyone a favor.

    Maybe all of these people need to get rehab at a communal-abuse clinic. Or maybe I do, for trying to wrap my brain around this story.

    Thanks again.

    SF2
