pikacheeka:

I just wish Kishi would tell me if he was going to retcon Madara into being a poor manipulated victim like Obito and Nagato or not so I know if I should drop the manga immediately or keep going.

It would be an unbelievable retcon, too. Madara has been very, very, very developed, and in such a way that his path was clearly his own. It’s one of the things that has always made his character so fantastic, the fact that he distinctly and clearly chose his own path and was never a victim. In everything we have been shown and told, everything that has been established by not only words and flashbacks but by actions, he has been doing his own thing, making his own plans and decisions, and running the show in the shadows.

That’s exactly what made him so dangerous against Naruto, because he is so strong-willed, and he always makes his own choices. Bad things happened to him, yes, but the things that warped Madara were not events and people, but his own ideas and beliefs. He is at once just like Naruto, and the exact opposite of Naruto, because of this. Madara has carefully been set up to be this deadly opposing force over hundreds of chapters and now thanks to this retcon of a “character” whose very existence doesn’t make the least bit of sense and who has no place in the story, the potential for him to be completely destroyed is suddenly there.

Never in a million years would I have guessed that Kishi might even consider this. Whatever people say about Madara, he was undeniably one of his most heavily developed characters, and definitely the most heavily developed villain. To suddenly retcon him into being a victim and a tool is unfathomable. I honestly can’t even wrap my mind around how that could happen.

Kishi might not do it. Kaguya might just be a battery and give him power, like the RS gave to Naruto and Sasuke, and that will be the end of it, or maybe she will try to take him over and he’ll just totally shake her off, but unfortunately the possibility is there for Kishi to try to tell us that Madara was always working for her, and I can’t pretend it isn’t. And unfortunately, that one single panel has rendered a lot of damage done within the fandom, as every single person who hates him has already found their “confirmation” that he is not who he has been built up to be for 300 chapters. Even if she never comes up again, much of the fandom has already decided that he’s “just another” Obito/Nagato and nothing will change their minds.

Depending on where Kishi takes this, I may consider dropping it before Madara is even finished. Because if Kishi turns Madara into a pawn, then the Madara we know and love died already.

I agree but I would continue to read it with a slimmer of hope that Madara can turn this around. Probably a dumb idea but I need to see how this series ends.

zeramato:

Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.

The rising popularity of this series and the fandom growing bigger kind of worries me. I love kagepro to death, i love the fandom too, but i don’t want kagerou project to me one of those “mainstream” anime.

I’m torn.
I want people to watch it but I also like the tightly knit community we have going on.
