Alive ~The Final Evolution~ – Chapter 32

Mass suicide again? Everyone dies… or do they?

Brief Summary

With eyes filled with hatred, Taisuke began his charge at Hirose… only to be blown away by the Heart of Akuro entering his former friend’s body.

Little dark globes were spread around the region, entering each of the members body. There’s a short moment when everyone remembers their past… right before losing control of their powers, killing themselves in the end.

Mr. Bubbles (Yura) was the first to go.

Asou turned into stone while Katsumata calmly talked about what’s happening.

Even Morio succumbed to his own power, after remembering how he wanted to be a pilot to fly the skies.

The effects of the Heart of Akuro awakening was felt all over the world. Yoko, Taisuke’s older sister, witnessed some horrifying events as the second wave of mass suicides began.

Even Kiyomitsu, the blind old man who could see the future, died… but his last words were to Taisuke, telling him not to choose life over death.

But despite the deaths, Taisuke was still alive and standing, surprising Katsumata.

In the last few pages, Taisuke recognized that the Hirose he knew no longer exists. Now, there’s just this evil being who has taken his place… and wishes to create a perfect future, one without Taisuke in it.

Impressions

Pretty much all the characters near the lake died except for Megumi, Taisuke, Katsumata, and Hirose. Somehow, I think it’s too sudden to have so many casualties and a good number will be revived by Taisuke’s power. Yuta, Nami, and Asou seem to be likely candidates for that to happen. The others… seem to be obliterated (Okada is also possible but he serves no purpose to the grande plot). Yoko makes her reappearance though I don’t think she’ll be having any major role in the near future. That scene was just to show the far reaching effects of the Heart of Akuro. With such power, I can now understand how Katsumata would bring about a new world, especially when involving Hirose’s natural power.

Overall, I was pleased with the chapter. A definite twist and nothing like what I’ve imagined. There was no epic fight… yet. But it’s only a matter of time… Besides, now I can look forward to Katsumata’s face when Taisuke beats Hirose.

  1. Excessive blood, but the artwork is quite good :)

  2. The series just took a turn for sadism.

  3. I like the character designs, and on the whole the art looks capably done. I just hope the gore doesn’t take root in my head and trigger nightmares (I can be pretty susceptible to those).

    If I can find Volume 1 in a local bookshop I’ll put this series on my reading list. (I’ve only seen some of the later volumes so I can’t get a proper start.)

  4. Well, this is also getting animated so you might see it on the screen next year :D

  5. I personally find Hirose kickass after getting the Heart. This is how the antagonist should always act, not afraid to pwn it up.

  6. Well… new Hirose isn’t the old Hirose. But you’re right about how he’s seemingly overpowered now. Despite that, I’m sure Taisuke will pull off something… at least some sort of partial victory.

  7. Yeah, even if I find Hirose pretty cool now, Taisuke > Hirose since I find the struggle Taisuke goes through interesting to read about. It develops his character through the process and shows how determined he is to killing Hirose now.

  8. i like mr. bubbles

  9. saya sangat suka manganya… ,, tolong untuk seri 75
