Chapter 38: The S4 1
The S4 1 is the thirty-eighth chapter of the Splatoon manga.
This chapter is part two of the battle of Team Gloves vs. X-Blood. Team Gloves keeps advancing with the rainmaker, and protects Straps, who is still carrying the rainmaker. They are not too far from the goal when Gloves says that he may be X rank material himself. That angers Vintage, and it activates his ability, X-Zone, splatting all of Team Gloves. The match then ends, and X-Blood win that round and advance to the Finals. Team Gloves then meets up with Team Blue-per, and Gloves' tentacles fall off. He then says that Vintage was amazing at the end of the game and that it was as if he knew what they were going to do. Skull then explains that X-Zone is Vintage's ability to find people and sense their movement, and his pride of being a Rank X draws that ability out from him. He also says that he was on the same team as Vintage, Aviators and Omega were also on that team. Skull was quitting that team to create a new team, and Vintage responded with that it is absurd, and if he wants a friendly relationship, then go ahead and do it. Skull says that is how their team broke up and how Vintage hasn't learned what true strength is, and he is looking forward to the battling Team Blueper. Their battle then starts after Goggles and Skull eat some rice balls and Specs tells them to check the map, which no one listens to him. Team Blue-per gets ahold of the rainmaker first, with Goggles holding the rainmaker. Then Aloha and Rider are standing in Team Blueper's way, and Team Blue-per realize that Rider and Aloha are using different weapons than usual. Army says that it was part of their strategy, but then Army realizes that Bobble Hat and Headphones are also using different weapons, and is mad that that isn't in his manual. Headphones remembers seeing Rider's weapon before, but she can't remember where exactly. Specs says that Aloha and Rider are coming in for the attack, but instead they paint the area to charge up their special. Headphones then remembers what Rider's weapon is, and then they then both activate booyah bomb at the same time.
