Mangaka: Amano Akira Title: Conflicted Rating: 6.5/10
Synopsis: Enma has resolved to sacrifice himself in order to take out Daemon and he pressures Tsuna into using his strongest flame to incinerate them both. We then go through the usual drama with the protagonist not wanting to bring harm to his beloved friend followed by the ridicule of the enemy for being emotionally weak followed by the terrified expressions on the faces of Tsuna’s comrades etc etc. Oh yeah, Reborn says his bit as well, that despite Tsuna’s many shortcomings he’s still awesome and so forth. Then, my darling Chrome (I love her) steps forward and promises to protect Enma when Tsuna unleashes his powerful um, power and proceeds to erect a mist defense shield thing at full power. Her hubby becomes worried and basically says: babes, this is dangerous, well, close enough and he uses the last of his flame to strengthen his wifey for lifey’s barrier. NOBODY can tell me he doesn’t feel a thing for Chrome *sigh* THEN, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Tsuna thanks everyone for their efforts, assumes the position of epic release (Daemon is freaking out now), He charges up! He aims! He fires!!! Tsuna unleashes NATTSU POWA!
Likes: I preferred this chapter to last week’s (which is kind of obvious as I didn’t even bother to review KHR last week). I’ve been waiting for ever for Daemon Spade to die. No time was wasted in this chapter. We had some conflicting feelings, an adorable moment between Chrome and Mukuro (which I have blown out of proportion :P) and the usual explosive action for the climax. Can we say Michael Bay?
Dislikes: There’s still nothing profound about KHR (I doubt it will become anything more than a weekly dose of random fun). It simply provides temporary satisfaction with it’s random fights, cool weapons and hawt male characters. So far, this arc deserves a C. Daemon Spade is without a doubt, my least favourite villain so far. His character seems like it was designed to impress 12 year olds but he does nothing but annoy me with his incessant taunting and jeering of Tsuna and company, his copy cat tendencies and his inane resolve to do what ever it is Daemons do. He better be dead. His villainy has been grossly unentertaining and childish.

Tempe§ta: 6/10 – Hmmm, okay this week wasn’t so bad but it leaves questions. Loved that Chrome stepped up and Tsuna’s concern for family.
Hebdomadal Eye Candy #1: Oh holy and exalted Kami of all that is sexy: Xanxus!! ❤ Now I think about it, his pulchritude might exceed that of my Hibari,*Gasp* Do you SEE this guy? His scars make him all the more attractive and yummy. Granted, he does look hotter than usual in this picture. *fans self* I can’t wait to do another top 20 hottest anime guys list. What say you mu§e? Is he worthy of the top 20 list?
mu§e: Good Lord 😐 Now, I don’t read KHR, too slow for me, I can’t do it, it bores me to death. I’m sorry fans, but tis how I really feel…maybe one of these days I’ll start it again. But if I ever did start it again, he’d be the sole reason. Sooo much yum…and there is something about manga/anime people and scars. I mean, think of Cloud Nyne from D.Gray Man 😐 She was hawwwwwtt. He is definitely top 20 worthy, possibly top 10…depending on the list. 😄
