    The plot lines that get introduced and then completely dropped and left untouched - the rivalry between Anak and Androssi, and the whole Red Light District mystery in particular. I think the big problem is that it's primarily using visuals to drive the story rather than character interaction. Also, the way characters are shuffled in and out is rather annoying. You have a whole B-team that no longer gets screen time. The one person on Baam's team that died is somebody Baam has yet to find out died (that we know of) and it was virtually off-panel so there's no significance to his death, aside from the sad feeling of a dude who will never get to see his family again (his whole character arc). It's a wasted death.

    I personally hate the way Baam's being forced into this Mary Sue role. He's never wrong and never fallible. It takes extreme duress or power to make him fail at something. I honestly would have liked him go full on yandere and show some ability to be a potential villain while on his quest to catch up with Rachel, but that's been nixed. I think White could have been better if SIU committed to him being a homicidal maniac. I think Karaka would have been better if he were either established as morally grey or SIU didn't force this partnership on him with Baam because the whole "I don't really like you, but I'm starting to secretly admire you" thing is fucking ridiculous and I saw this shit coming a mile away. You don't see Baam trying to get out of this situation.

    You also don't see Baam actually try to get to know these characters that he calls friends and I honestly think that should have been how the one dude's death (the one who just wanted to see his family again) could have had some meaning to Baam and the rest of the crew. It could have been a massive wrinkle in the character development in that they were caught up in the climbing in the tower and neglected to actually take the time to get to know the people they are fighting alongside and for. It would have been a stark ideological change that could cast Jahad and the rest of the ten families' perspective and ideology in a negative light and show why we should root for Baam and his crew, in spite of their association with FUG and what not.

    I think we also could have Baam stay fresh for readers if we actually had arcs focusing on the B-team, arcs focusing on the development of other people than just Baam and Khun. You're getting it with Rak (finally), but what about Anak? Androssi? That one dude that just sleeps all the time? What the fuck are they doing? Since when the fuck did Androssi become a pop star? How is this helping her become successful in her climb up the tower? Is she giving up the climb?

    There's no update on the war against Jahad either. That got dropped. What's happened during the time skip with the three edicts Jahad had sent out? There's sooooooo much missing shit that it's frustrating because SIU really does set up an amazingly massive world and he fleshes it out just enough to focus on Baam. It's such a missed opportunity in the writing.

    I don't mind the Baam focus, personally, but I get it. It's inevitable in a series this vast that characters will come and go.
    I'm also a little more optimistic that we'll get answers to everything eventually as the story coalesces.

    I get what you're saying about how there could be more depth in development overall and how Baam is Gary sue-like, but it just doesn't diminish the overall enjoyment very much for me.

    Oh, it's not that I don't enjoy it for what it is. I just see so much more potential there, even if you rewrite some of the plot with everything else the same or some very minor tweaks.

    I will say that it's unforgivable to name three characters who are supposed to be absolute monsters the following: Doom, Yama, and then Paul.

    Well I had a hard time choosing :catshivers.

    Whitebeard is raw though.

    Hmm I guess I'd also go with Zoro if the wank wasn't so massive.
