Tsuna is a pathetic waste of a character compared to Ikki. To the rest well Air Gear has always been about contests. Hitman, well who'd guessed the entire thing would also be about nothing but contest after contest in a mob plot based environment. Also like Xaturas said, OG tends to make you go WTF is going on, rather than with Hitman where you go WTF another tournament with prizes, again...

it's a bit different though, because while reborn was a gag manga that turned into a battle action manga out of the blue, air gear IS a battle action manga and it's the plot that(and "seriousness" of it) that gradually change(and there are hints all throughout the first volumes of what's to come. You've just read vol 1, well, don't ever forget the scenes with the old guy...)

Tell me about it. I'm always surprised when people say that they are surprised by the change in Air Gear, it was pretty obvious what direction it was going in since the Buccha fight.

not quite, but by the time of the behemoth fight(agito and akira's fb) it definitely was...it's mostly a matter of very low exposition, keeping the reader about as informed as the main characters, so you only understand the sheer scale of it all when the main chars do...

though OG did kinda lose the handle after volume 20...tried to do too much with it...

Its obvious what the direction of AG was, there was enough foreshadowing with fights and Ikki getting the regalia. However around halfway manga went from SF into Fantasy. People surviving impalement by helicopter rotor. Major turnarounds explained as some kind of Hypnosis or other mirage. As far as AG was around kids using regalia to fight and using some powers like fire/lightning and other stuff it was ok, but then it went crazy shit. Still I will probably read AG again when it gets finished to have a whole picture. It just that OG is known for his Oh Not So Great story twists.

After giving it some more thought, I've decided to put this off for a bit later. Thanks for the replies.

I thought 350 already released by stream?

Ikki apparently has "Infinite Possibilities" in front of him, and he wrecked one of Sora's legs. Ikki just got strong out of nowhere, so much for Sora's power up ..

I wonder what Sora will do now.

Isn't it more like that Sora couldn't keep or predict Ikki's moves rather than Ikki got stronger than Sora? I found it nice that while Ringo admires Rika, it's the exact opposite in Ikki and Sora position.

It is weird that someone so narcissistic like Sora could admire someone else.

for someone like Sora he made a path for himself to follow all his life. He can see everything along that straight path easily but knows of no other direction to go. Whereas Ikki basically says "screw paths" and goes to uncharted territories that Sora cannot see before or behind him.

Yeah, Sora pretty much knows what he wanted to do, how to plan and execute them. Ikki on the other hand is pretty much like what the others said "A Storm", he wrecked everything that binds him.

Then agan, both of them pretty much a narcissist, if I may say.
