Ramsus attacks in this chapter, but so does Dominia. And so does Jessie, but only with his words and only at Bart. We're also questioning the ethical responsibility of GameSharks, admiring pirate and salvager bonds of sea and fire, expressing rage with quick camera cuts, missing every mother fucking X attack, noting the time/space error by the Yggdrasil's depth charges, not paying attention to Ramsus' Mirror Stance, conjuring an NPC Doctor Academy FanFic, jerkin' off with Bart, outlining Nisan sect and Etone god compatibility, and discovering what a butt kissin' talker looks like. We will kill god, but can you crucify an invertebrate?
