Code:Breaker 81

It’s a little cheap the way The One Being Sought always has another power handy. Now he’s Diavolo and Wolverine?

“Presser” is a bad attack name.

Code:Names? Uh-oh. That’s the sign of the next major series of fights. I never like when enemies are prefaced like this. At least these won’t all have Spanish titles. (I hope.)

The Seeking One, is it? That sounds a little less cool. Too bad.

The direction this chapter is going, by humanizing The Seeking One, is making me worry that we have another Itachi on our hands, i.e. the credible villain the series has built up since the beginning is actually a good guy (… well, kinda) and other, stronger people are the real evil ones.

“Deep Presser” is even worse.

The two-page spread is pretty cool.

The second two-page spread is even better. Itachi scenario avoided; this storyline has a little similarity, but is far better.

Final Flash: Mixed feelings about this climax, because of the foreshadowing of the Code:Names, but overall, the fights were good.

Code:Breaker 80

We’re starting with a flashback? Last chapter ended on such an excellent moment, too. Interesting.

There’s not much depth about The One Being Sought. He’s evil, sure. That’s really all we know. The flashback is only serving to reinforce that, rather than expanding upon it. Maybe there’s nothing to expand upon. Too bad.

It seems The One’s power is a little less Dio and a little more Diavolo.

The little twist in the action is giving this fight a very end-of-series feel, which can’t be right (given, at least, the foreshadowing remarks at the end of Toki’s fight).

Final Flash: This fight is odd. It isn’t bad, but there’s an awkward feeling about it.

Code:Breaker 79

Really like the seams on Ogami’s shoulder.

It must be said of The One Being Sought: “ZA WARUDO”

Little Ogami is a strange combination of cute and gruesome. Kamijyo’s art style is suiting these scenes rather well.

I like how hard Toki has fought throughout this arc, and I also like how The One can so easily throw him and Sakurakouji aside.

Flame powers may be overused in shonen, but this one is fairly interesting.

Final Flash: Good, but not quite the impact of the last few chapters.
