How would Tsuna save the Arcobaleno?!
The previous chapter sent Tsuna on a path of contemplation and reflection. Could he formulate a strategy to save his precious Reborn? Initially it seemed that there was nothing he could do—it almost seemed like a completely and hopeless situation, and I imagined most readers couldn’t see any sort of situation in which he could save the lives of the Arcobaleno, as well as to change their fate.
Inspiration comes from a variety of sources. In Tsuna’s case, the silly Lambo and his ridiculous antics with the switcheroo of juice managed to get Tsuna’s mind thinking. The plan that Tsuna came up with was barely hinted at, but it seemed to get him into the right mindset of thinking that he could effect change. Of course, it wouldn’t be something he could do on his own, but with the help of all of his allies in the past.
Tsuna’s statement seemed to imply that he would need to augment the power of the pacifers with an equivalent power of the babies themselves. Perhaps he needed to get the other guardians and characters to lend their powers to their partners? If so then that would explain why he met with them for the remainder of the chapter.
This chapter and the previous one were great for showing the intellecual development of Tsuna, as well as how deep his concern is for the Arcobaleno was. He managed to formulate a plan and take action on his own, and for that, he must be applauded. Would he be successful? Well, Akira Amano did great in keeping some aspect that would hook us until next chapter.
