ـ رسولُ اللهِِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): أفضَلُ النّاسِ مَن عَشِقَ العِبادَةَ فَعانَقَها، وأحَبَّها بقَلبِهِ، وباشَرَها بِجَسَدِهِ، وتَفرَّغَ لَها، فَهُو لا يُبالي عَلى ما أصبَحَ مِنَ الدُّنيا: عَلى عُسرٍ أم عَلى يُسرٍ.
The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘The best of people is he who longs for worship and embraces it, loves it with his heart, throws himself into it with his whole body, and devotes himself exclusively to it, such that he is not concerned in what worldly state he wakes up in the morning: in difficulty or in ease.’
Do you think Harley tries albiet futiley to stop the Joker from going after Selina to harm Bruce? Harley and Selina have been on the same team a few times, so I was wondering if she tries to protect her.
She might, but there’s also a good chance that she wouldn’t. Surprisingly people have only tried to harm Selina a handful of times to get to Bruce. The Joker has only done this once and it was back in the ‘80s before Harley Quinn had even been created. Catwoman had been erring on the side of good for years and he brainwashed her into turning evil, but Year One was published shortly after so it was retconned.
The legacy of Gotham City Sirens has created this perception that Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy have been BFFs since the beginning when in actuality Ivy and Selina never really got along and Ivy and Harley have collectively done more harm to Selina than the Joker ever has, especially Harley.
First, once Harley and Catwoman were stuck in prison together and Harley slit Selina’s throat. She subsequently gave Catwoman drugs to make her easier to control and coerced her into trying to kill Commissioner Gordon just for fun (Catwoman v.2 #82-83).
Next came Batman: Hush when both Harley and Ivy did some pretty terrible things to Catwoman. Ivy used her charms to brainwash Catwoman into stealing for her. Some people have also interpreted this mean that Ivy sexually assualted Catwoman, but that’s open to interpretation. During a night of debauchery with the Joker Harley shot Catwoman and ruined her date with Bruce Wayne.
Finally in the very first issues of Gotham City Sirens Harley and Ivy tried to torture Catwoman into revealing Batman’s identity immediately after she had just invited them to live with her.
Still Harley helped Selina get revenge on Hush (even though she paid her to) and she helped Selina save her sister and Selina saved Harley from Hush and tried to help her reform. Their friendship is a mixed bag of firmly standing up for and defending each other and Selina taking a lot of abuse from Ivy and Harley. Their history has shown that Harley’s had no problem maiming, shooting, and torturing Catwoman as a means to an end. It’s a weird friendship, but what else could you expect really.
Okay so Hide is the person who tipped of Marude about the Washuus being ghouls, and the RC Gate. (Don’t get confused with the “Chika Washuu” and Nagachika, the kanji for chika is different here, though i imagine there’s a reason as to why Ishida put it there.)
Information that NOBODY knew except the Washuus and those from the Sunlit Garden themselves.
If anything this confirms two things:
1) Hide is most likely, alive.
Why i think so? If Hide knew about this all along, when he was undercover at the CCG, and he really died in the last part, that means he would have told Marude this information sooner, which would have been 2 YEARS ago. Then why would Marude only confront Yoshitoki now?
This means that Hide is alive, and is possibly in hiding, finding out more about the Washuus and this whole mess, and must have come to this conclusion recently. How exactly he found out about the RC gates we don’t know, but he tipped off Marude about it recently.
2) He isn’t who we think he is.
Hide being a normal human, just Kaneki’s friend who just wanted to find out and help his friend after finding out he was a ghoul, may all have just been a cover. There is more to Hide than we know, more about his background, history, family, that we don’t know. He may have been going undercover in the CCG for different reasons all together.
I’d imagine we’re going to find out more about him soon enough, what with all the Hide references that have been popping up in this arc. It seems like Kaneki having flashbacks with Hide, is like Ishida trying to show us this is the last time Kaneki and Hide will be portrayed with such a relationship.
I’m not going to jump into the boat where Hide is actually an antagonist in the plot, but he’s manage to find himself in the middle of the mess that is the Washuus and ghouls.
Hide might be a Washuu, but personally i don’t think he would tip off Marude about his own clan if he were one, unless he has some bad blood or falling out with them.
As for Hide being the One-Eyed King, the OEK and Hide are two characters that are shrouded in mystery, we can’t say for sure until we find out more about him, though the possibility has increased after this chapter.
These are the results of a poll held in July on the Japanese Fanclub page. Highlights include J-Hope spamming on Kakao Talk, Rapmon being punny, and Jimin trolling the internet for edited photos of BTS.
