I am NOT a happy camper.
You know me. I love it when female characters get to fight in a fighting series. Last chapter ended with Mina forming her Acidman, presumably to get to Gigantomachia and toss the sedative canister in his mouth. I saw this week’s color cover of Mina and I was even more excited.
Then…I saw the chapter’s title.
Red Riot. Oh, fucking hell.
My dear Mina got thrown into the background so Kirishima could have his moment. Total. Utter. Bullshit.
Yeah, yeah. I get it. Kirishima is redeeming himself from not acting when first confronted with Gigantomachia back in middle school. But, did it have to happen at the cost of Mina’s development?! Sure, Mina was scared. But, she did what she had to do and broke down after the job was done. This here seems like her character regressed all for the sake of giving Kirishima the spotlight.
Fuck that shit!
Don’t tease me with Mina then toss her aside like Giganto did Mt. Lady. Don’t hype her up last chapter then give her the fucking cover spread just so she could be Red Riot’s prop. I hate this so damn much it’s driving me crazy!
Rant’s over. Moving on.
We have confirmation who Majestic is and he’s bringing the party (complete with a bunch of named heroes) to Gigantomachia. Remember, they don’t have to defeat him but merely force him to spend energy attacking so the sedative can kick in faster. Still, that’s a tall order against someone who can step on you.
We end the chapter with Super Shigaraki on the ground. Team Endeavor won! But, uh-oh! It happened off-screen so you know it won’t stick. And, right on cue, Shiggy’s body looks to be going threw some kind of change. That can’t be good. Could this presumed transformation be what Shigaraki should’ve been if he was 100% complete? Maybe. My guess is whatever is happening will have a time limit or some other flaw due to his premature ejaculation from his tube.
Fuck this chapter! The Mina stuff ruined what would otherwise be a good time. Why couldn’t both Mina and Kirishima have the moment? Have Red Riot back Pinky up so it’s a legit team effort. Oh, hell, now I’m pissed off again. Damn it, Horikoshi! You’re grounded! In fact, ALL of Shonen Jump is grounded for two weeks. Go to your room and think about what you did. And, don’t you dare let me catch you playing League of Legends or else!
