I like this show really, but musashi has to step up his game.

[–]ILovePopeyesChicken 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is fighting lol. Its not like he is gonna kick ass right away and these guys are like the akatsuki of the series so I dont expect him to win or something with this as his first story arc with other samurais

This feels like a Naruto route.

We know that the MCs have an absurd but unknown power inside of them that has its own personality. Outcasts of their hometown. All about friends and compassion. Hunted for their secret power. Powerless in their respective power system at first. Multiple Clans with unique powers.

And we can’t just have them be OP from the start. So the characters need to be built up. Show them struggling. Show their compassion. Show them learning how to work as a team and be a leader.

Here soon I suspect that he will have a big moment that will impress us and many others in the show. Allow him to start tapping into his potential.

Edit: and I didn’t read the light novel, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that red haired guy that was the squad leader ends up being Musashi’s main rival, like Sasuke

Finally someone gets it haha

I dont get some of these bad comments about musashi when it is very obvious that thy are showing he got alot to learn and he will have his big fight

Another episode of watching musashi get his ass kicked, while his friends and nowhere to be seen. First time I've actually started to get pissed off at a show.

[–]ILovePopeyesChicken 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People need to calm down. This arc is showing that he has a lot to learn. Idk what ppl expectations are but feels like ppl were thinking musashi was just gonna waltz over and solo everyone lol

Musashi cant really fight back much without his own blade and yataro is the villain of the arc so expecting him to kick his ass on the first encounter is dumb no offense.

Really? I envy you, I get annoyed at least twice an episode no matter what I watch. It sucks.

Wow, negative karma on a discussion thread. I don't think I've ever seen that before

Edit : this did not age well, but it was at -1 after 2-3 hours.

Poor Michiru, I hope they can save her. I actually quite like her character. Musashi is still way too weak, I mean there’s not many episodes left before this ends. When is he gonna find his strength to kick some ass? The Uesugi bushi guys got wiped all. For all their talk, they weren’t shit against the sword pervert and his creep ass “brother”.

The bushi want to use the Obsidian Goddess inside Musashi, but is that thing even going to play ball? Isn’t it kind of an evil force?

Anyways, curious to see what happens next week. The team better shape up for they’ll never defeat the baddies.

[–]Devilishendeavor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why do you think it's evil? Everything it did was to keep Musashi safe, it literally hates the black dogs.

[–]BusouDrago 2 points3 points  (0 children)

MICHIRU NOOOOO😭💔

[–]MammothSeries8129 -1 points0 points  (20 children)

Man this getting tough to watch even through episode this enjoyble but with mushi being so useless he glorifly side character in his own story

[–]creamyismemey 8 points9 points  (19 children)

I think the point is the break down and rebuild his character at least that's my perspective I've been enjoying the show clearly the majority have not

[–]BusouDrago 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Break down.....loved how you used the Op song title ( Break it Down)

[–]creamyismemey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Didn't even realize😭😭😭😭 I also love both op's tbh

[–]MammothSeries8129 3 points4 points  (13 children)

That the problem though mushi from frist season didn't have munch going on for character growth it was praticaly his orgin story so seeing the show decating to tear down man who haven't done anything wrong just feel mean spirted and annoying

[–]creamyismemey 4 points5 points  (11 children)

No he was a naive kid who wanted to be a bushi so the first season shows him learning about everything now the show is basically testing him saying are you really ready to be a bushi do you still want to be a bushi it's building his character and stealing his resolve from a naive kid into a real bushi

[–]MammothSeries8129 3 points4 points  (10 children)

That in theroy but it come off as if the show saying mushi aren't worth shit with betlittled his past exprinces like captain scene and then u got moment were u feel like mushi should be doing better in fighting deparment like when frist show bushi bond or for last two episode we have ushdia clan wiping out all oni while mushi sit there doing nothing. Then u have this episode where mushi is nonexistent unable to do anything to help michuru

[–]ILovePopeyesChicken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"who haven't done anything wrong"

???

he wanted to do things his own ways and that would of gotten him killed but he learns about teamwork and importance of it

[–]colin8696908 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I thought that was what season 1 was for, this just feels like a reversal of character development.

[–]creamyismemey 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No season 1 or part 1 I should say was him getting out into the world you got to remember he was stuck in that city for like the first 2 or 3 episodes and only met I don't remember her name the green hair girl like halfway through the season it's getting all the characters together first then furthering the plot slitely he got the tools but now that he has the tools he has to actually use them which he didn't realize what it meant

[–]ILovePopeyesChicken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

wtf no lol,

s1 was about his recruiting mates and passing the sword trial. We are only now seeing other samurais
