Jinwoo Gets Injured and Bleeds After a Long Time
Many fans took to the internet to express how refreshing they found the chapter to be as it’s been some time now not seeing Jin-woo struggle. He’s being pushed into a corner with the new challenge of fighting against three monarchs simultaneously.
This seems like a huge character growth moment for Jinwoo. He’s always portrayed as too strong and this makes it seem like the other characters are irrelevant.
So the fact that he’s struggling a little in this chapter creates the necessary tension fans have been dying to see. It also establishes the monarchs as formidable characters and ups the whole game of the manhwa.
The Team up Between Jinwoo and Beru is Fantastic!
Beru is in full on support mode as he assists Jinwoo in his battle against the three monarchs. The panel where Beru and Jinwoo cut the humanoid insects is very tastefully done.
In between this high-stakes tension battle moment, we also get some comedy relief in the form of a highly cutesy Beru as he praises Jinwoo and also when he shouts at the monarch of plagues and insects: “You crazy bitch!” This chapter does great in cementing Beru’s position with Jinwoo and also with fans as his fan favorite status increases even higher.
Were the Monarchs Unaware that Jinwoo has Status Effect Recovery?
The monarchs don’t seem to know that there’s a whole game system built into his body. They simply think Jinwoo is working with the architect and that is how he’s able to exert that much power of the original shadow monarch.
So the monarchs have no clue about this healing ability of his and the frost monarch also tells him his time is up as his wound is fatal. It is at this moment when Jinwoo scoffs and starts using the status effect recovery. And the panel shows two of the monarchs’ surprised faces.
