Bruh why is Tsurumi behind almost everything.

Like, there's a flashback/explanation of something. Then you get to the end and boom, Tsurumi.

I hope this is not Koito's deathflag... (I've been worrying ever since Sugimoto say "it might be a corpse that comes back home, you know" all the way back at chapter 139)

Cat is a Russian spy?

I'm a sentimental sap, but I'm still holding out that, at the end, Ogata's final play is to get somebody else to kill him, so that Asirpa isn't "responsible" (kind of questionable if that counts since he seems to be dying anyway). That said, while I don't see Ogata making it out of Russia alive, it would take a chapter to explain what his actual plan has been this whole time, because we still have no idea what it is.

Ogata suspects Asirpa knows the answer to the gold's location(or at least enough that she wouldn't need the tattoos) and I bet he is trying to get the word out to whomever the fuck he is working for! The feds, the soviets, who knows? I can't wait for Noda to do that particular reveal. Soon pls.

Also super hyped for the back story on our favourite kendo master!?

Russian text are sometimes strange in these, but for "барчонок" all is forgiven :)

I haven't even read the chapter but these comments are like dividends paid on the investment of me picking Ogata as my favorite character after his first couple of appearances.

Ogata is the personification of "I'm not even mad, that's impressive"

I mean, not even going over the russian thing, whatever that might entail.

All those wounds, blood loss and poisoning, and this motherfucker, this motherfucker with sniper training, used to slowing his heartbeat to assist on his shooting.

He slows his fucking heart beat just to help him create an opening for him to escape. After all that bullshit, he had the mental faculties for THAT.

And when he has the opening, does he fucking run?

No. Because this cautious bastard knows someone might try to check or maybe kill him, so he makes it LOOK like he ran for it, but he actually takes a hostage and creates a whole trap.

Seriously, not even mad, that's just fucking impressive.

Well, he got a poison arrow through the eye, his eye carved out of his skull, and lost a ton of blood in a frigid environment.
Also, he's a sniper, so he's not expected to be as resilient as Sugimoto the Immortal.

Not exactly reasons for them to believe he can still pull off stunts like this.

Big alarm when Ogata suddenly started talking russian. Also what the fuck did they thought it would happen, god damn, its Ogata.
Avatar
see, this is why i guess he has relation to soviet government. his action soo far would make more sense with that.

but damn,everyone here is badass...

At this point this is like standard Ogata. This will teach them to tie him up always.

Waiting until after golden week is going to be hard. This chapter gave so much but just leads the readers to more questions! Ogata speaking Russian isn't too shocking - keep in mind when he went off for the sniper battle with Vasily, he said he was going to ask them for answers. Vasily didn't die, he could have talked to him and we just don't know it yet. Ogata teaming up with Kiro with only knowledge of Japanese would be a terrible idea on his part and would lead to a huge power imbalance between the two of them. The cat alliance was likely formed very early in the manga or before the manga starts.

I'm more curious about how Tsurumi started grooming Koito - was this to get at his father or him or both? What did he do that Koito needs his praise? Is this a death flag for Koito or a change in his direction as he finds his purpose and fights back at Ogata?
