Title: Smack It Down! Rating: 8/10
Synopsis: So Karias ends up in the wrong place with Regis (he’s such a nice guy, carrying the injured Regis everywhere and stuff <3). Then, we’re back to all the DORAMA!! with the lord, Gejutel, the super powerful clan leaders and Rai: THE Noblesse. The idiot lord informs Rai that being the Noblesse only exacerbates his crimes since he ‘abandoned’ and ‘betrayed’ them. Hmm. Anyway, the lady lord also tells Rai-nim that she was just about to kill Gejutel before he waltzed into the shrine lookin’ all sexy and cool, and sexy.
The clan leaders start beating their chests by whipping out their soul weapons, trying to look awesome etc but failing miserably in ‘his’ presence. Nice try though. However, the lord tells them all that she will face him alone. YES!!! (sorry, I was hoping for this). Sooo she raises her fake (it’s fake right?….right?) Ragnarok and unleashes her terrifying aura! :O All eyes are on Rai. Even the annoying mozzies in my room stop buzzing and stare in awe as Rai gently removes his earring (I almost teared up here) which is….his SEAL!!!
This causes the very bowels of the earth to shake in response, alerting everyone, including Franky and Rajak who stop fighting and rush to the epic scene. The idiot lord creates a blood field and is like: Hey Rai, um, take this :|. But, of course, she FAILS. The laconic Rai opens that gorgeously sculpted mouth of his and says: So this is the blood field created by Ragnarok? I find it lacking. (Bwahahaha!) Then he proceeds to show her a REAL blood field and stupefies all and sundry as he does so. She extinguishes his blood field with her ‘soul weapon’ and is completely unharmed (heh, not bad) but Rai is unimpressed and apathetic at her feeble display of prowess and with his usual phlegmatic expression, he instructs her to, “try it again”. Dayum!
Likes I’m really trying to hold back on the annoying fangirlism but you MUST admit that Rai was absolutely electrifying in this chapter. He was so gentle and ELEGANT (for those who are new to Noblesse, these guys are obsessed with “elegance”) in the way he removed his seal and faced the lord. Also, his gentle yet cutting remarks are just…wow. Rai is just naturally gifted in his insults, his (unintentional) jokes, in elegance, in everything. Well, let’s not forget technology. There’s no hope for him.
Dislikes: I want to know the lord’s name and the mystery behind Ragnarok. I was hoping Rai would comment on it. Oh well. I hope Rai doesn’t overdo it though. Going all out could take a serious toll on his precious body. Super Franky to the rescue!
More Chapter Ratings:
mu§e: 8.5/10 – Probably another unfair rating but I can’t help it. Rai makes me weak. I’m a weak human being :|. He is soooo damned sexy. I want him. Now….I don’t think I even remember the chapter 😐 .I just remember those sexy red eyes staring me down 😐 ON a serious note. Great Chapter. The fights were good..but you know how I feel about how clean they are…or are not. Um…Rai schooling the Lord = epicly amazing.
Tempe§ta: 8/10 – I don’t know about everyone else but I think that Rai is the biggest boss alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! His seal release made the Franky fight stop which was totally awesome! Can’t wat for next week.
Random Cogitations: So I really want to know what’s going on with this Ragnarok business. I don’t think the lord has the real Ragnarok. However some people think that her Ragnarok might have just a fraction of the full power that the real one in Rai’s shrine has. Why would the previous lord leave his soul weapon behind in Rai’s shrine, if Rai cannot wield it due to him not being a direct descendant? Just to keep it away from his daughter? So that means that Rai and the lord are related right? They look like they could be related to me. Would Rai make a good boyfriend though? (hey these cogitations are random remember?). You wouldn’t believe the naughty things mu§e was telling me about ‘her and Rai’ last night on Skype. I’m soooo telling Dr. §trangelove.
