Indeed, Rider really has the most character development. Goggles really didn't seem to have much at all, other than he's physically stronger by each chapter, I think. Rider went from egotistical, arrogant, loner battler to an open-minded, supportive, and caring friend. He still have a tough/aggressive side but yeah, he's working with his team well. It's what I really about his character in CoroCoro Splatoon
. Gloves and Prince-Kun may have some character development, I think. I still needed to know more about Prince-Kun once there's more translation coming up.
As predicted, Team Emperor indeed lost to Team Blue, it's definitely a very close match as well. Hmm, if Emperor won the tournament three times in a row each year, would that mean he's seventeen years old? Oh anyway, heh, at least Royalties of Pink Ink are progressive and winning more matches. I wonder how they win more often now. ^^
Ah, it'll be a long time to wait for an official translation. Well, patience is a virtue. Daaa, I want an Emperor Gear Set so bad...
