KHR 355!

WE'RE HITTING THE HOME STRETCH~

SUMMARY OF THIS CHAPTER:

Millefiore cover page! All the famousest Gesso and Giglio Nero peeps together as one big happy family! <3 And then we're back in Italy witnessing Gamma and Uni's heartwarming reunion (they do it classy mafia style, aw yiss). Byakuran interrupts them, presumably out of jealously for the depths of emotion their human hearts are capable of feeling, and Gamma FLIPS OUT and is all BRACED TO ATTACK but then Uni is like WAIT STOP, HE'S MY FRIEND NOW and Gamma is like WHAAAAAAA?

Turns out that Uni's mother Aria passed up her chance to be de-cursed in order to give Uni the same opportunity in her place. (I totally see this as foreshadowing for what the eventual winner of this contest is also going to do.) And Byakuran has been selected as one of Uni's representatives! This goes over with the rest of the Giglio Nero family about as well as you might expect. But they calm down once Byakuran brings up the fact that they're all going to Japan--this isn't just going to be a reunion between the Gesso and Giglio Nero, it's a reunion between the EVERYONE. SHOULD BE INTERESTING.

Back in Japan, Reborn and Tsuna are wandering around downtown because there's no better place to secretly discuss secret mafia events. But actually they've headed downtown in order to meet Dino, who picked the poshest hotel possible and even wore a real live suit for the occasion! They get ready to sit down to a fabulous meal when all of a sudden Bel literally swings down from the ceiling screaming HYAHOOO and plucks Tsuna out of the air and kidnaps him off to the SUPER SUITE, where what has been seen... cannot be unseen. XD

Bel tosses Tsuna in a heap before Xanxus so that they can have their own tender reunion which is not quite as heartwarming! Tsuna slowly puts two and two together and realizes this means that the Varia are representing Mammon in the Arcobattle. Dino and Tsuna come running in to save Tsuna, not a moment too soon because Xanxus is already staring Tsuna down with the crazy eyes declaring things like I WILL ERASE YOU. Then he changes targets at the speed of light and blasts a hole in the ceiling for another checkered guy (it can't be the same one... can it?) to tumble through! Said checkered guy introduces himself as Tsunomichi and announces that he has come to explain the rules of engagement. But we will get to that in the next chapter.

THINGS OF NOTE:

  • Shouldn't that Millefiore paragraph on the cover read something more like, "In all the worlds, in pretty much all the futures"? XD
  • "In the current world, it would seem that Byakuran has lost his powers..." Um. I know a certain Rain Guardian and his certain working legs who might disagree with that statement! Not that this is a bad thing.
  • I just have to say, TYE!Kikyo is fabulous.
  • GAMMA AND UNI'S FACES ON PAGE TWO... I. I promised myself I wouldn't cry...! ;_;
  • "You can't do that, Gamma-kun!" ... ... must not make pedo joke... must not make pedo joke...
  • ...okay, but based on page 8 I feel like I have no choice because it appears to me that Byakuran, Gamma, Uni, and Bluebell are seriously trying to form the world's wrongest love rectangle. SERIOUSLY, WHAT IS THIS. OH MY GOD.
  • --BYAKURAN AND SHOUICHI REUNION, BYAKURAN AND SHOUICHI REUNION, OMG. AND HE STILL REFERS TO IRIE AS "MY BEST FRIEND SHOU-CHAN" OH MY GOD I SO CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS!
  • Oh, Dino, you know my one weakness is suits... YOU BASTARD, YOU DID THIS ON PURPOSE.
  • Where did Bel even get that rope? Or did Mammon just illusion it up?
  • Based on page 14 with Squalo's fancy chair, Lussuria's sweaty musical note workout, and Levi's OH GOD MY EYES, I am now beyond-a-doubt certain that every time the Varia are alone together behind closed doors, there is some HARDCORE GAY going on.
  • Xanxus's crazy eyes are the CRAZIEST crazy eyes EVER.




    SO CRAZY!
  • And ONCE AGAIN he is demonstrating his ability to read minds by shooting right at Tsunomichi before anyone else (except possibly Reborn) even realized he was there! XANXUS YOU ARE REALLY STARTING TO SCARE ME.
  • Seriously, is this Tsunomichi guy really Checkers? They look nothing alike and are wearing different clothes, yet Reborn thought-exclaims The man in the iron hat! when he sees him at the end of the chapter. But it's just because he saw the dude and immediately knew he was connected to TMITIH... right?
