one thing that will never stop being funny to me is how kiyo is extremely super cautious about zatch’s magical lightning powers at the beginning of the manga, to the point where he causes zatch to be super depressed and runs away because kiyo causes him to believe he’s only a danger to others
there’s an armed bank robbery with several hostages, where many lives, including the life of the sole person in his entire school that even remotely likes him, are on the line. he comes up with this convoluted plan to lure the robbers near a pole to knock them out with an electric shock. the attack ends up being a direct attack by accident, so he then runs up to the robbers out of serious concern that he didn’t kill them and he’s visibly relieved when he realizes he didn’t
later on in the manga, though?? it doesn’t matter if you’re an ally, if you piss kiyo off, he gives ZERO shits. oh, you’re folgore, and you’re happily singing about how much you love tiddies?? expect a fresh, steaming hot ZAKERU aimed directly at you
I know there are SO MANY I can choose from for this one, but I am go with the one that makes me feel the most nostalgic.
I mean…Lightning comes out of his MOUTH…and he doesn’t even remember it! If that isn’t badass I don’t know what is.
And then the result:
Either ridiculously hilarious or amazingly badass.
And all of that comes out of this little cutie.
Sure he can make dragons and stuff later on, but Zakeru is my favourite because it was the first.
When I watched Konjiki no Gash Bell, I was living like a vampire. We’d recently moved to a new house, and some of the neighbours actually thought my mum was lying when she told them I existed. I stayed up ALL night EVERY night watching anime, and slept all day every day, and rarely saw any one…I was happy 100% of the time and it was just awesome. And the animes I watched during that time make me feel EXTREMELY nostalgic and sad that I can’t return to that life. Maybe this is why Zakeru is so special to me, because I really could have chosen so many other attacks. 1000 options in Naruto…Oh, then there’s Kamehameha…and so many others. But. Yup. Zakeru feels special, so.
