Katekyo Hitman Reborn! 287

[chapter link]

Cover: “The All New Popular Series!”? This has been running fox six years. Maybe they mean “arc” instead of “series.”

P2, bottom-left panel: Again, Amano’s use of speed lines reflects poorly. She’s a great artist, but speed lines are not only tacky, but they make the scene harder to read.

Yeah, I pretty much have no idea what’s going on throughout page 3. Thanks, speed lines.

Short fight. I can’t tell if it was good. I know it wasn’t awful, because there was no excess melodrama, but the art made it too difficult to follow.

Yes, yes, Enma has hidden powers. We know that. Let’s just hope he’s not going to turn evil and fight Tsuna.

Katou Julie is stalking Chrome, readily admits it, and asks someone to say ‘hi’ to Adelheid’s thigh? Sounds like we have quite the winner, here.

Enjoying Gokudera’s increased role as a right-hand man so far.

Gokudera’s teams: Predictable, or most predictable?

Did we really need yet another chapter to establish that Enma is secretly the leader? Assume your audience has a little intelligence, Amano. Some things are better left assumed.

Final Flash: Another chapter that leaves me feeling hesitantly good about this arc. Good enough to be optimistic, but not quite good enough to feel confident.
