Age.....?


The computational ability needed for them to use their powers. I would have expected at the very least something like this. Age has nothing to do with it

One might see Hollow-Kakine as 'pure evil' right now if Unit 05 is the manifestation of his good side.

But you're kinda missing the point; I'm not saying they are like those characters, I'm saying that it might be the inspiration, just like Rider and some freaky living furnitures...

Got your point but that's a bit forced. Unlike Mr.President who's an obvious Broskander expy in both look and manliness, the rival trope is rather common ; and unless there are some really notable similarities between the four of them or their respective relationships I'm not sure it sounds legit to say that.

He's more like pure " Lost in the Darkness of Academy" than evil.

I won't deny that it's a bit of a stretch, but again you're focusing on the wrong thing- It's not about them being rivals or whether they are the same characters, it's about the idea of having two fighters trying to outwit, outplay and outlast each other.

This level of thinking is more common with armchair generals duking it out like Lelouch, Light, L etc. But unlike them Accelerator and Kakine are on the frontline like shounen fighters, except shounen characters are more responsive and make up plans on the fly instead of beforehand.

IMO they can easily outclass those characters, #1 & #2 do it themselves and are into their own plan rather than using/relying on other.

That part reminds me of Kanzaki vs Acqua fight somehow on the part of reading your. enemy moves..

Tch ... and how am I supposed to get it that way? but then again, it's still pretty common.

It's kinda like the tropes, chess master villains control from the shadows while manipulative bastards and on the front line, both take pride and base their style at manipulation

Kamijou finally meets with Cendrillon.

I gotta say I loved the scene, tinge of darkness included.

A hero is born
Another falls (into a loli)
Another plays mental chess with a hollow

I think Kamachi is officially abusing LO and Fremea's role now, but as long beetlebro continues being cool, I ca deal with it. Meanwhile, Touma is doing quite badly, and while this is business as usual for him, I can't help but shake the feeling he's getting extra beaten this time (And judging from the spoilers, he will). Well, at least he upgraded from being used by organizations to individual people

Ah, thanks. I saw it but forgot about it. If I remember correctly it was more of a joke than an actual game, but I get how the image can be used for absurd declarations.

Anyway, as Requiem suggested, Touma is definitely rope walking, with his body in that state and with the lack of a concrete plan. Even without the spoiler it wouldn't be a surprise if he ended up in a bad spot.

(I wish I didn't see the spoilers but it cannot be helped, I'm compelled to come here to comment... my will is not strong enough to resist the temptation. )
