Now it's episode#93, second to the last episode of Book 10-- and we all know, Arai-sensei never miss a thing when it comes to a critical moment. And certainly Arai didn't this time as well...Yesss!!
KURDA!!!!!! (of being freshly fished out and naked, of course! :D)Ahh, definitely worth the wait!
Now, aside from Kurda... the implication of cannibalism regarding Spits was deleted in the manga (so Spits had just kept 'murdering' his captives). Also, the souls in the Lake were all indistinguishable from each other and took human form only when dragged out of the Lake(and we could see Murlough).
And so, since Book 10 concludes in next episode we won't be able to see Kurda thereafter...Grrr.
Shonen Sunday will have a summertime break and the next issue won't come out until August 20. So I'll keep savoring this week's Kurda for another week...
