I continue to not really understand this game nor the true stakes of it. But a long as I switch my brain off and just ride along with the flow, it’s fun seeing the characters do their thing and start to get some small amount of insight into these new roles they all hold. I get the impression, had I not imposed myself to write about every episode on an individual basis, I’d probably be enjoying Tower of God a lot more.
As it turns out, the 1st division is far less infested with villains and evildoers than I was first lead to believe. Although, we get to the villainy and evildoing far faster than I was expecting. I guess I’m just predisposed to believe all shonen drags everything out at every opportunity.
We’ve met the villain, and he escapes with relative ease. I’m still wondering what kind of villain we’re going to get out of this guy. I’m seeing more of a misunderstood monster vibe from him than the child eater kind of antagonist, but maybe I’m just a sucker for a pretty face.
