Yama is a slayer, the bowman is an elder, which is different. Elders are executives, slayers are high-level fighters who're supposed to fight with the 10 family leaders by the end of it.
although karaka has never seemed powerful enough for that, he didn't even seem nearly as powerful as yuri jahad
so I think he's gonna need to hit the gym for a while if he's going to fight with any of the 10 leaders
Also Bowman seems to be at least as strong as Yama, he just feels betrayed by what he thought was his biggest trump. But he seems to be a pretty beasty fighter if he decides to fight.
And yes IIRC barring the leader of FUG no other FUG member is even in the top 20 of the rankers. So they need some top rankers/family leaders to defect to even have a fighting chance.
And then there's Baam, Slayer candidate who's probably already strong enough to go ahead and get the slayer promotion with his myriad unique power ups and irregular status.
On the flipside a slayer is supposed to be someone who hopefully slays Zahard, so it only makes sense that they either are very strong or at least have the potential to become very strong.
Baam is overall tough to rate since he seems to be much much more powerful if he just stabs himself with everything. The train station fight seemed to suggest that a full masochist Baam is more powerful than Evankhell or at least has more offensive power. In that regard he's probably ready to become a full slayer.
That being said I really hope they introduce some drawback to stabbing yourself with a legendary blade or a magic amplifier that doubles as a power plant, because that's the kind of thing that should come with a drawback.
I've got mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, they're handling TOG's pacing issues very well. This will be great later on when they get to the fights which seem to drag on forever. On the other hand, you never get a chance to chew the scenery so all of the dialogue scenes will be rushed through.
As for the latest chapter... just a bunch of pointless fighting. No one of any importance is actually dying so it's just of bunch of dry humping with no followup. I really wish SUI would just grow some balls.
Feels so weird that they are flying to a wall flying in the air and then get surprised by people 10 meters away from them. Like where were Dowon and Kallavan hiding? Kallavan has a huge flame coming out of his hand and noticeably warps the air around him! Maybe just park the ship closer to the wall next time.
It's a classical superpower shonen problem, this scene would make much more sense in a contained environment. Like there's a space port with locked gates, Baam jumps through the fleet in front of the port and tries to get into the gatehouse. He lands the ship in a mini-spaceport, runs through 2 corridors to get to the sealed area that opens the gate into the arms of Kallavan and Dowon. Kallavan makes his "you are so predictable" speech and he'd be right. Everyone would still be in character.
Instead Baam wants to punch a hole into the wall of China and Kallavan and Dowon pinpointed the exact spot where he wants to punch, two people who are the noble warrior stereotype and a girl who ... seems not very smart so far.
Also Cha to Dowon: "Why are you fighting for Jahad?" We all want to know.
Then again I'm proud of Evankhell, she actually killed someone. She also seemed pretty badass in the flashback.
Episode 2 is out and episode 1 is now free to view.
