So I know that this is two weeks late. I know. But this is one of those months where an AMAZINGLY INACCURATE scanslation was somehow available on the interbutts a full day before Gangan even hit newstands in Japan, and since heejung123 already posted a breakdown of all of the wrong lines in the scanslation (which was like, oh, 75% of the dialogue, including Big Daddy's big plot-relevant scene at the end of the chapter) I didn't feel like there was a whole lot of reason for me to rush this month's recap. Also I've been busy. Also there were like about two thousand more interesting things for me to blog about than Soul Eater this month. I mean I enjoyed this month's chapter but still.

So anywhoo, here we go!

We open this chapter with a large panel of Crona, who is still obviously still alive, because DUH. If you were one of the people panicking about Crona being dead last month, then congratulations, you fell for an obvious fake-out cliffhanger that really shouldn't have fooled anybody older than Soul Eater's target demographic of twelve-year-old kids. On the other hand, if you're feeling smug because you didn't fall for the fake-out cliffhanger... Congratulations, you are smarter than a manga written for twelve-year-old kids. Or rather, congratulations, you are reading a manga written for twelve-year-olds. At the end of the day I think we can all admit that this is a bit more shameful than falling for a fake-out cliffhanger is. (*hangs head in shame*)

Shameful for not, I keep reading this shit anyway, so here's this month's recap! )
