Perhaps Mr. Yoshihiro Togashi paid homage to Hannibal Lecter’s infamous brain-eating scene?

Then the unfortunate fate of our protagonist’s mentor. . .

I’m just a bit tired… I think I’ll sleep just a little.. okay? Do you think you could hold onto my hand?

Komugi? Are you there?

I’ll be awake soon, okay? So until then, would you stay by my side?”


There’s so much more to this manga but one thing that really impresses us is how it gives all characters a moment to shine. No hero always saves the day here. Readers are shown each individual’s perspective, how and why they make certain decisions. In fact, most of them were exceptionally logical. Kudos Mr. Togashi !

Highly recommended fellow Otakus!


So Otaku, what did you think of the latest episode?
