Thread: Kingdom

    Seems like Kyoukai will lose her breathing tech as an exchange. That's the only way. It would also nerf her forever, so it should be fair.

    Ok, that does it, I'm at a loss for words. How come manga authors so often spiral from an engaging story down to the purgatory of shonen mediocrity ? Is it the workload imposed by weekly publication that burns them out ? Do editors encourage them to play it safe by applying the same old recipes time and again ? Pressure to not get the axe that makes them lose sight of what they wanted to do in the first place ? I think Bakuman touched that subject a bit, but it sends chills down my spine to see it happen again and again with almost every series that I pick up.

    If Kyoukai dies over this dumb bullshit, the series can go to hell.

    Nah, she won't die. She will lose her spirit dance.That will be the cost.

    What a great chapter

    Spoiler:
    Kyoukai and Shin are both dead, so now the manga will end without any further plot complications

    The series always had fantasy elements, sure. But i don't feel like this is consistent with the things that had been shown so far, even with Kyoukais spiritual stuff.
    Also she's my favourite character ... so fuck all this shit.

    This must be what they call "jumping the shark" in US.

    I haven't been as turned off from this arc as everyone else (though I am exhausted from it), but this... is stupid and there really isn't a way for it to be resolved to make it satisfactory.

    Ugh, really wish Hara would not have gone down this path. Don't like it one bit.

    Maybe Houken will come and sacrifice his life force for SHin so Kyokai doesn't have to die. What other ways there would be to make this more ridiculous? :D

    Sure, it goes hand in hand with the last-second childhood flashback about mysterious healer parents.

    Something like this happening was my guess the moment Houken's backstory was revealed and, I'm confident it will be as exactly as ungratifying as it sounds.

    After this next chapter to confirm my suspicions, I'm moving on to greener pastures. There's so many excellent manga out there: at this point, dropping Kingdom is no great loss.

    Sad day for Kingdom fans.
    Hara is probably burned out.
    Series has been going for years that the guys probably been drained out of having draw big war arcs after big war arcs.
    This series has gone full shounen a while ago and the reusing of certain tropes has become much more prevalent.
    Auto pilot was blatantly on in terms of story telling in certain chapters too.
    Welp, once again I advocate that if there is enough work life balance in the industry most long running manga wont end in a shitty spiral.

    It was a perfect opportunity to have Houken beaten as a group effort, Shin and his company giving it all they got. It would perfectly illustrate the difference in conflicting philosophies. A lot better than having Shin just be stronger because he has friends. And it would be a fitting end for Houken, considering how he won against Ouki.

    Have all those soldiers on both side participate instead of being a static audience.

    I like idea of pathseekers and feel like there was potential to tap into Houken as one of them. However the only who truly recognized him as such was Rebook, as even Shin didn't see this supposed light inside of him. I don't understand why did author chose to write and portray him this underwhelming way, maybe just lacked time and ideas.

    But worse so, now his underwhelming unfulfilling torch is passed to Shin. And in the process, that very Shin won against him through idk even how. How was his body able to hold on there? And now being revived by some magic powers even though magic doesn't exist in verse. Or so I assume so. That's a bit too many things happening, each of whom tore away suspension of disbelief.

    Kyokai may really actually be dead.
    I recommend: Peerless Martial God, Renegade Immortal, Gourmet of Another World, Trash of the Counts Family and The Great Ruler
