#318-319 Discussion

So... what did you guys think of the big revelation?

On the one hand, I'm happy that we got such a nice twist, and I'm sorely tempted to OT3 Mukuro/Chrome/Daemon, seeing as it's the closest to Mukuro/Chrome/Mukuro she'll ever get (barring time-travel). On the other hand, I'm sick of Chrome getting nerfed, time and time again, in order to showcase some male character.

As for our favourite 'ship, I think this revelation can only bode well for it. Both Mukuro's lookalike and Chrome are essential to this plotline, so there are likely some great 6996 moments in the offing (once this brainwash hurdle is dispensed with). I can't decide if it is Mukuro vs Daemon (The Battle of the Clones) or Chrome vs Daemon I crave more... maybe they can take turns?

Discuss? :)

I do so wish for Chrome to get a decent fight! Amano owes her after all the tentacle scenes, the brainwashing and the degradation.

Daemon creeped me out considerably less as "Daemon" than he did as "Julie", so I assume at least part of the latter's personality is an act. (A salient example: "Daemon" only calls her "Chrome", whereas "Julie" calls her "Chrome-chaaaan". :P)

Yeah, actual traitors make way more interesting plot-devices than misunderstandings (with which this arc began).

When this came out *twist* it took me off guard. I was like...

"How is she (Amano) gonna pull it off?"

I can't think of anyway that this can pulled off for my little Mukuro to come out. I mean if what said is true then Daemon has the upper hand in the whole thing.

Chrome is already under his spell, and I must say he rivals in hot-ness with Mukuro in my opinion :D, anyhoo unless some other mist guardian comes along I can't see how anyone would notice through Daemon's illusion.

So I'm also really curious as to see what's going to happen in the next chapters :D

I'm very curious, too! I hope Mukuro or (my preference) Chrome will be given something to do -- I don't want them to be the ones left out, out of all the Guardians.

(Daemon, hotter than Mukuro? RESCIND, YOU BLASPHEMOUS INDIVIDUAL, RESCIND AND REPENT! okay, might be a bit of a toss-up)

Yea I do agree with you there, Chrome does need some more "show time" she hardly gets any.

haha I said "rivals" haha they are both cute in their own ways. I think I like Daemon because he gives that creepy, stalker hahaha :D

And Mukuro because...he's just Mukuro....:) haha

None of the "Reborn!" girls do, but, by virtue of being a Guardian, at least Chrome gets more show-time opportunities than the others (and generally relinquishes them to Mukuro *sigh*).

Daemon's creepy stalkerish ways bother me considerably less now that he looks like Mukuro. I wonder why that is... :P

*sigh* I would've thought Amano would give Chrome a little more credit and make her at least a bit resisting to Daemon's brainwash..poor girl never gets a break! X(

as much as i love Mukuro (so,so much <3 )I would be brimming with happiness if Chrome got out of this one on her own. Daemon might be too strong for her to fight directly but a great twist would be that she's actually setting him up and just playing along till she finds a weakness, and defeats him -he could have underestimated her, and didn't put his whole power into the brainwash- how great would that be? XD

the 6996 can come when they go to rescue the others from Vendice, with a confident Chrome rescuing Mukuro! *ah, hope! how i've missed you!*

but, hopes aside, I guess I should just be grateful that Chrome is actually in the forefront of this arc, and not neglected to the sides -at least for now ^^; -..so bring it on Amano! ^^/

I hated Daemon-as-Julie, but now his resemblance to Mukuro is screwing with my head ^^;

I WANT THIS PLOT-TWIST IN MY LIFE

That's exactly what I figured would happen --as far as breaking Mukuro out of prison. :D I'm sure Amano figured we'd be hungry for some free Mukuro after the epic future break out we all got in the previous arc.

I want both, as well! Maybe Chrome a little more, because she never gets to be in the limelight... but I certainly wouldn't complain if we got some Mukuro, too.

I think the arc (which was getting kind of annoying for me st this point) suddenly got way more interesting with this reveal so I am all for it.

That said, I am pessimistic about Chrome getting an opportunity to do anything, but it's always good to keep hoping.

I'm pessimistic, too, but... surely Amano has gotten wind of the complaints about her treatment of the female gender by now? Maybe she'll finally do something to remedy it; although the brainwash admittedly hints in the other direction. :\

It's odd, you'd think female mangaka who write shounen manga would try and make kick ass female characters more often (eg like Hiromu Arakawa with FMA)but not always it seems.

I am hoping that Chrome's obedience is an act, to get to know his plans. That would be awesome, but is the least-likely scenario, because girls don't get the "Ha, I knew it all along!" moments in shounen manga. Especially Chrome, who is so mild and innocent (Amano does have problems with her girl characters, but I don't know if it's considered a problem in Japan. It might be quite normal to the Japanese fandom).

There is a possibility that Mukuro will find out somehow, or he is the one playing along with Daemon's plan. And he will do that "I'm only rescuing Chrome because it suits me" thing that he does before he fights Daemon (and hopefully has some cute moment in regards to Chrome, because he really does care, in a Mukuro kind of way).

I have other theories, but those are the ones I dislike the least. The rest are all "Well, I would rage-quit the series if this happens, so of course this is what's next ><" kind of pessimism.
