how about a petition to see more of the other characters' backstories or even just more of the other characters either in the manga or in the fandom
I totally agree, anon.
I’ll be honest, I think we’re due a Hilda-Iris-Beel flashback. I know Hilda’s a main character and she’s quite the favorite, but we’ve never gotten a complete backstory on her, why she ended up with Beel, why Yolda ended up with En…there’s a lot of untapped potential there. I’d love to see that.
Another character backstory I’ve been waiting for but I don’t think we’ll ever get is Kunieda. And I know, she’s also quite popular and she’s had her own arc with Ringo but I really want to know what happened to her parents. How she got involved with the Red Tails and Nene would be an extra bonus too.
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without Kanzaki and Natsume. Natsume is great as a minor but enigmatic character but man, you have to wonder what he saw in Kanzaki to start following him. And Natsume is waaay stronger, maybe even stronger than Toujo and Oga. So what gives?
That’s my list anyway. Who’s backstory would you like to see next?
We often wonder if these guys will really get to show what they’re made of instead of continuing to beat around the bush by being total enigmas. Though you get the impression they’re spectacular fights on the level of Toujo.
Natsume's identity has been largely a mystery during the series, and I'm afraid we'll never find out who he is. :( He's been hiding his near-Toujou strength since forever, and I was looking forward to the reveal and Kanzaki's reaction. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some kind of resolution for Furuichi.
Yeah we’ll never know Natsume’s backstory, and its a shame. As disappointing as it is, I think the petrification softens the blow a little bit. It sounds like a lot of people got petrified by surprise, or to buy others time. On the other hand, personally I enjoy mysterious characters staying mysterious. Sometimes its more satisfying than the reveal.
I think Furuichi is as done as he’ll be, really. Actually out of the cast of mains he’s gotten the best deal in the finale: everyone saved him from getting petrified, and he got a super special power no one else in the series has. It would have been nice to see his powers in action but at the same time at least he got it. Heck, he faired way better than Hilda did, and she’s the tritagonist!
