409 chapters have passed and what changed in Tsuna?
Sure, he now knows how to fight and at least he`s determined to fight for his friend`s sake (this is shounen, afterall -.-);
Granted, he now has friends.
But what about the rest? He still is ridiculously weak without the Vongola Ring, sucks at school, is weak without Reborn, hasn't confessed at all and therefore doesn`t have a girlfriend.
And the most important thing, which is this manga`s "Raison d'être": Tsuna`s saga to become the next Vongola Boss.
So much stuff happened to him and to the people he cared about and he still acts the same way he did in the first chapter! I find that outrageous, c`mon... one thing would be him declining because he wouldn`t be able to carry out the job properly; however, that`s clearly not the case here: he underwent some training, he developed his skills and created a group sort of similar to Vongola Primo`s.
WHY THE F*CK WOULD HE STILL REFUSE AT THE END?!
Is it just me or do you feel the same way? I think Amano could have worked his character better. After all, she had 409 chapters to do it.
