Feia temps que no plorava tant amb un pute llibre. Ha estat super trist veure sa mort de n'Ash i encara més veure sa expo de n'Eiji amb sa foto de n'Ash. Traumàtic pro preciós tot. Encara q no he acabat d'entendre si a nen Sing li agrada n'Eiji, o n'Akira, o com va se cosa, pro no passa res, se supera.

3.5 stars. This volume was quite slow, definitely a lot calmer than the last two volumes with the big showdown. This volume served as a bridge into the big escape that Ash will surely pull. What did we learn in this volume? Ash never catches a break, even when 3/4 of the world presume him dead.

Anyway welcome to another installment of I read manga to avoid responsibilities and also to avoid this big 400 page book that I have to finish by Tuesday :)

Basically in this volume we learn what’s really going on after Ash is announced dead. What everyone is up to in the wake of denying or accepting these news.

Eiji refuses to believe that Ash is dead, and he manages to escape Yut Lung (round of applause for him) what a king. All I have to say about Yut Lung at the moment is EIJI DRAG HIM BY HIS PONYTAIL. But also like tell me more, like why he hates Ash so much and Eiji too and why he’s tryna get killed, you know?

My visceral reaction every time I see Golzine is to recoil and retch.

Max saying that Ash is like a son, and he knows the body they saw wasn’t his. I’m emo.

Every time Shorter is mentioned. My heart hurts.

It makes me want to cry the potential Ash has. Like, imagine the scholar he’d be if he were allowed to be in school. Imagine the opportunities if Golzine hadn’t robbed him of his life and freedom. He has a really high IQ and he got 100% on the tests imagine him ten years in the future being like some self-made business man or I don’t know, in some really important job. Ugh, whatever, I’m fine.

These hoes really testing me, they really tried to mess Ash up: NOT ON MY WATCH!
Ash over here got drugged and Eiji just passed out in the middle of the street, protect them.

So, Golzine just waltzes in and stops the operation (the only good thing he’s ever done) but then he is there when Ash wakes up. I’m having flashbacks to another book where a character named Warner wakes up and his dad (who is the worst) there and oh my god I hate them both.

I cannot with the flashback where Ash talks to Eiji about his death: YALL BETTER STOP!
I’m- wait- did Eiji just foreshadow what’s gonna happen cuz if so, I’ll go stand in a corner and sob.

Ash really knows how to use his charms for his benefit, he charms them all. I cannot believe the innuendo’s in that song. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to yeet from a life-or-death situation.

Ash carrying Dr. Dawson around and literally struggling 10x more is a mood.
