What a fucking douchebag.
Really, though, everyone should have seen this coming, because, again, this guy looks and acts like a giant asshole. He’s gone through the trouble of planting a bunch of bombs on a bunch of people; does anyone really think those babies aren’t blowing up at some point? Everyone loves explosions, most of all villains who have planted bombs on people. Real talk: I’ve called this guy an asshole, but if I planted those bombs, I sure as shit would have detonated them.
(Dear FBI/CIA: Please don’t arrest me. I just like watching stuff blow up, not actually making stuff blow up. Wait, that doesn’t help at all . . .)
ANYWAY. I think the Bomber is going to fuck off for a while now that he has a bunch of cards? It’s been a couple of years since I watched the Greed Island OVAs, so there might more of him in the next episode for all I know, but I’m pretty sure we’re off to one of the better parts of the Greed Island arc soon. I’m actually interested to see how it will play out here, whereas in the original OVA I remember mostly vague annoyance. Now, though, I think I will enjoy it much more since I don’t have a shit art style to be biased against and whine about like a loser. Fun times!
If it weren’t for ACDC’s power in the latest JoJo episode, this little fella would probably have been the grossest thing I have seen all week. Getting all drooly and sucking up the Nen bomb is bad enough, but slinking all over Abengane and hanging around on him until the Bomber is killed or his power is destroyed . . . ugh ugh ugh. Just gross. Also, as I am sure that many of you newcomers have spotted, we suddenly have someone who can erase Nen powers that have been placed on him. Whom do we know who are searching for someone who can do that? Tada! The key to erasing Kurapika’s Nen spell on Chrollo Lucifer has appeared.
That just makes me think, though . . . if Abengane uses this power on Chrollo, will Chrollo have a similar creature crawling all over him until Kurapika is killed? I’m not sure it would be the same creature, since Abengane implied that different Nen-destroying creatures would be summoned depending on the level of power of the original Nen spell used. I don’t think it’s too far-fetched, however, to suggest that Kurapika’s is stronger than the Bomber’s since there’s a more intense form of malice behind it. What if the summoned creature were worse? Chrollo would be walking around with an ugly ass boa around his neck cramping his style. Ick. I’m sure he would do it and still be an awesome fighter, but it would suck.
But, yeah, removing Nen spells is officially A Thing. How long do you all figure it will be before the Spiders catch wind of this? Nobody saw Abengane that we know of, and he’s in disguise now. Hmm. Also, random note: I enjoyed the editing during the dual scenes of the Bomber blowing shit up and Abengane removing the bomb from himself. It’s a simple editing trick, but hey, that kind of stuff is classic for a reason.
Also, I have nothing else to say, so here’s a bunch of screenshots of Biske-chama being moe:
