With X’s death row inmates hot on the tails of Sakamoto and his family, it was only a matter of time before the two clashed, but what happened in Sakamoto Days chapter 40 was quite unexpected.
As Lu and Shin fought Saw, one of the serial killers hired by bounty hunter assassin ‘X,’ Shin’s clairvoyance evolved into the ability to see the future. With his newly acquired power, Shin finished off Saw for good with a badass finisher dialogue “I can see your future.”
With his “Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru” moment, Shin has proved once and for all that he is not just a side character to the legendary bounty hunter Sakamoto.
For those wondering what led to this power-up moment, let me recap a bit.
After being attacked by Saw, Lu and Shin tried their best to keep the serial killer at bay, but Shin’s ability to read minds failed on the maniac who only had one thought in his mind, i.e., kill them both.
Pushed to their limits, Lu and Shin are gravely injured, but Shin decides to give his all upon remembering his love for his family. And in true shonen fashion, even the wise Mr. Sakamoto comments that Shin hasn’t mastered his true ability, and his best is yet to come.
Just as all these cliches aligned together, Shin unlocked his new ability and gave Saw a taste of his own medicine.
Truthfully, even though the situation was quite tense, I couldn’t help but laugh over the pure absurdity and all the shonen cliche. The latest chapter proves that Sakamoto days truly knows how to balance humor and fast-paced action.
