Katekyo Hitman Reborn! 304

I’m reading a series with an armored kangaroo. Sometimes, this whole manga-reading business is embarrassing.

Ryohei donning Kangaryuu’s armor pieces makes him look a bit like a Saint Seiya character. I wonder if that’s at all an intentional homage.

Saint Seiya doesn't have kangaroos, though

The future arc was ridiculous enough, but the way its existence has been handled since is even more preposterous. How are more and more characters aware of what happened (happens?) in the future?

I have absolutely no idea what Aoba’s powerup is. Once again, Amano has tried to add too much detail, and has instead made her art completely illegible.

Jumbled and confused

Obviously, Ryohei has to wait a certain amount of time and/or take a certain amount of damage before revealing his full power. That works in video games, but it alone doesn’t generate interesting fights in manga.

Final Flash: In stark contrast to Naruto, the speed lines and detail of Reborn! just muddle and ruin the art.
