Did they just slap Stuffed Inthe Fridge right in the face....in a manga?
Didn't expect that. Not at all.
I did. But I also expected Fujimoto to expect that, and thus play it straight instead. But it appears Fujimoto expected that we would expect the unexpected, and threw in the twist.

…Yeah, that's better. Though I kinda wished Denji would be able to connect with a normal girl as a contrast to devils of all sorts.
For extra points, though, it's not every day that you see the phrase "I'll protect you and make you happy" said by the girl to the guy.
Also… thanks for the color page, Fujimoto.
PS: Can't wait to see this chapter in anime. Reze's voice actress is gonna have fun.
That color page is something one would usually see in an ecchi.
It's funny because the rough artstyle would make you think the girls can't be sexy. But oh boy.
Anyway, I wonder if Makima would use that splatter spell to kill Denji if he actually chose to elope?
It's like Fujimoto took everything about regular Shonen and just said, lets do the exact opposite of that.
So, does anyone know what Reze was saying?
The chapter on Mangastream has a translation of the Russian part, though I couldn't tell you how accurate it is. Seems to be some kind of song.
Specifically one the chapter's named after.
It amuses me that Denji specifies that "tried to kill me" is a hard pass, given that he's gravitated to the most coolly homicidal ladies around.
Hey, Reze might be a possible KGB assassin and Makema is a walking force of nature, but they haven't tried to kill him. Big points for that.
Reze is Bomb Devil, and tries to kill Denji, because she realised Denji likes someone else beside her. Beam rescued Denji, but Rese goes after them.
Shark-Bro for the save. Bros before Hoes.
And for a second I thought Denji was finally getting a normal kiss… Better luck next time.
Kinda disappointed that Reze is a devil though. A Badass Normal would have been a welcome addition.
I agree there. But I guess that's how it goes.
Well that was metal as fuck
@Ninety: Thats this whole series in a nutshell.
Well, that escalated quickly. o_o
Oh, and I guess she's now out by Denji's criteria (which were "female" and "hasn't tried to kill me"). Too bad.
It's interesting how Denji isn't completely unique, and others like him keep showing up. Obviously it isn't an easy/normal thing, since otherwise I'd imagine the Bureau would want agents like him instead of people that are just Contracted with a captured Devil.
But besides Denji, all the others so far have been working for the Gun Devil. Bets the Gun Devil itself is a similar being?
Interesting theory you got there @harostar
Anyways, on the manga... I need to catch up like seriously given I took a hiatus due to the mangarock fiasco.
And the plot thickens:
Huh… Why would Makima forbid Beam to reveal crucial information about the Gun Devil?
And damn, Reze's power seems broken as fuck.
Well, I mean.....she's Bomb. I've seen it pointed out elsewhere that her devil-head is based on Fatman, so it makes sense she's so powerful.
If calling someone or something da bomb wasn't out of fashion....well, it'd be pretty on the nose for Reze.
Not really surprised by the Makima thing, since at this point I'd find it weirder if she wasn't doing a bunch of shady-ass schemes in the background. Girl doesn't even let her own people know what devil she's contracted with.

How well does it match the trope?
