There s so much to enjoy about everything that is going down It s remarkably similar to the Cell saga in DBZ The king even looks like perfect Cell I wasn t overly fond of the rest of the volume The king and the chairman steal the show I am so torn over this arc I feel like I have so much to say about it but also nothing at all Because it s so morally complicated and messy there s a lot to be pulled apart but I can t really come to any solid conclusions either Meruem was born a monster then grew into the positive aspects of humanity And after Netero stomped out the chance for Humans and Ants to see eye to eye Meruem became this godlike creature who became above humanity He was all powerful and viewed humans the same way humans view
