I READ IT.
If anyone wants it, I found it here:[link]
A better English translation will probably come out within the week, but this is for you impatient bastards like me.
Now let's start with how I felt about this chapter:
EVERYTHING FUCKING HURTS
AND I AM FUCKING DYING
MY EMOTIONS RIGHT NOW ARE UNEXPLAINABLE
I JUST WANNA SIT UNDER MY DESK IN A DARK ROOM AND CRY UNTIL THE NEXT CHAPTER COMES OUT.
WAAAAAAEEEEEEEEE. Spoiler time:
Okay, so let's start with the fact that Lord Death fucking died.
YOU'RE LORD DEATH.
I'm just done.
I mean, I'm so happy that Kid became a full Shinigami and the stripes connected and stuff. Tbh, I thought that he would become a Kishin when he did and shit would go down. I'm glad that he didn't though, but it would've been very interesting (and sad) if he did.
To what can be seen, he doesn't fucking know that his father died due to the fact that he's a true Shinigami now.
He's gonna come home and find him dead and he's gonna probably have a meltdown and wHEN THAT HAPPENS I AM GOING TO DIE ON THE INSIDE.
I think the saddest part about Lord Death dying was that as his mask was cracking, Atsushi Okubo drew small bits cracking off from his left eye, representing that he was slightly crying.
Okay, now other important things. What I love about the manga more than the anime is that although Maka is the main protagonist of this story, she's the weakest and she acknowledges this. She is still strong both mentally and physically considering that she's still a human, but since Black Star is fucking half-god or something and crazy and Kid's a Shinigami, she's nothing compared to them which resulted in the end of the chapter - her getting the Kishin's hand penetrated through her stomach and out her back.
Now obviously she's not gonna die. I highly doubt she will, but if she does, then this story will take one giant-ass twist and Atsushi Okubo would be one fucked up author. xD
To be honest though... I don't really believe that she got hurt.
A few scenes before she was stabbed, Asura said he felt something inside of him with the black blood and there was a small slide exposing Crona. This means that obviously Crona isn't dead and he's (I'm gonna use he to save the trouble) gonna come back, most likely on the good side.
When Maka was stabbed, the entire picture was put onto two pages. But the setup of the pages were kinda weird. Maka's back wasn't completely aligned with the rest of her body on the next page. Either that's the way the manga made it to be or that's how it was uploaded to the website.
But what if Crona somehow came back without anyone knowing and sacrificed himself to save Maka ?
I know that's a giant longshot and I highly doubt that's true, but idk, I led myself to believe that. That would really be cool if it happened and also sad because Crona's an awesome character. He was near death in the anime too from something similar that almost happened to Maka in the manga-- When Medusa was gonna stab her with her arrow and Crona pushed her out of the way.
So it could be a prediction that the same thing will happen in the manga since the concept of Lord Death's mask cracking in the anime when Kid became a slight Shinigami was used in the manga as well-- //cries over Lord Death's death
Myabe I'm looking way too into this. Most likely, Maka was stabbed and she's almost gonna die and Soul's gonna go COMPLETELY BATSHIT in the next chapter.
But that chapter's a month away from now, so if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go sit in my dark closet and start to rot away until that chapter decides to show it's fine-ass around.
And also, I'll be drawing an emotional fanart to Lord Death and Death the Kid starting now. //rolls away
