We become motherfucking Pikachu. Get it?
Toudou suddenly has
Pikachus growing light coming out of his fists.
Flashback to some guy called Haraguchi dying in a hospital while Toudou and Kirishima CRY over him ;~;
:T Ergo, TEEVEE is fake. :V
Toudou explains that only after (BTW, he’s a freshman in high school) you ‘risk your life in battle’ do you gain the power of ‘resolve’.
Apparently his fists are Pikachu because he has RESOLVE. But you only get resolve after you don’t solve it the first time; meaning people who resolve are stupid.
I, for one, just solve, and thus am inherently superior to all of those lower beings.
It’s only massive because Toudou’s too fat
Anyways his resolving skills, while seemingly not helping him much in math, manage to grow his girth to extraordinary amounts, creating a ‘Hell’s Massive Fist’ through sheer fat-power. And resolve.
Just as he’s about to kill Manabizaki, Iwashida jumps in and takes the hit for him. He doesn’t die because hard hats are awesome protection.
Finally, Manabizaki decides to become REALLY REALLY LAZY, and because being LAZY is the opposite of having RESOLVE, Toudou faints through all of this anti-resolve.
“Nooo! A lazy person! Our eternal enemy! Let’s all self-implode because that’s what people with resolve do when lazy people are around them!”
Seriously though, where the heck do mangaka come up with these stupid ideas? Always having some stupid explanation like ‘resolve’ or ‘willpower’ instead of ‘we’re genetically /better/ than you guys, thus we can fly and stab yin-yang orbs with our gohei’? And for god’s sakes, let us not forget this setting – it’s in a FUCKING HIGHSCHOOL, these people aren’t HARDCORE VETERAN VIETNAM WAR MELEE INSURGENTS. They’re HIGH SCHOOL KIDS. With a MOMMY and a DADDY.
I can just imagine the conversations they’d have…
Mom: “Hey Manabizaki, why do you have blood on your shirt?”
Manabizaki: “Oh, y’know, I just punched a guy straight into the school roof, where all important battles must take place, causing structural damage that totals out to about $4,000.”
Mom: “That’s nice. Go clean your room.”
Manabizaki: “But MOM! I HAVE TO KILL THIS PERSON WHO’S THREATENING ALL OF MY FRIENDS EVEN THOUGH HE’S IN HIGH SCHOOL AND REALLY I SHOULDN’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK!”
Mom: “Do what I say, go clean your room RIGHT NOW, young man. I don’t want you to use that kind of language in front of me!”
Naturally, Asian parents should be more strict so I don’t get how these battles even take place. Unless they’re orphans and somehow get enough money for food and a place to stay every night.
OH WELL WHO CARES
